Don't give up
Himel at birth, or a little problem in the legs. A little will be less. His or her legs are too narrow below the knees and the legs cannot straighten. In other words, you have to bend your knees and walk slowly with your hands on your hips. No problem. It has become a habit. The silent language of all curious eyes has been tolerated.
It took him a long time to walk. I have never felt handicapped or helpless because of the cooperation and sincerity of all the family members. The pain was behind the chest. When the boys run around the field with footballs and cricket and dream of flying a colorful kite in the blue sky, he sits at home, flipping through the canvas drawing book in his mind or lying face down on an open book. But does his mind want to stay at home at all!
Good at studying since childhood. There were several times a fast boy in class at first. Then slowly the branches of thought retreat a little as they peek out the window of the mind. However, there were always first class students. Dad would go to school every day and then go to the office. After the holidays, he used to return home by rickshaw with his mother. Telling mom the same thing every day, I grew up. I can go home alone now. Besides, I have many good friends now. They don't offend me. Rather, they help me to walk like me. My mother cries silently with a cloth on her face and says, "My little boy has grown up a lot."
Mother did not return home from school with Himel for a long time. Because, after a while, the mother left on her own, not to return to the world. My father never remarried because of Himel. Since then he has become much more self-reliant. Going and coming everywhere alone. Some school-college classmates gave him a lot of inspiration. The helping hand was extended. Never looked into the eyes of compassion. Himel is grateful to them today.
That is to say, the deprivation of the mischievous classmates of his childhood and the pain of not being able to walk on the green grass or the pain of not being able to run away when he grew up for no reason have caused him a lot of pain. But he did not give up. He has learned to fight. He was able to fight with himself. It is more difficult to fight with yourself. You have to fight alone. No one can be taken along. It's like breaking yourself again and again, rebuilding.
Good luck. Got a friend from college life in his university life. Munir. Very ordinary and nice minded people. In fact, like his older brother, he was in college. Himel's self-confidence also increases a lot if he is by Muni's side. And Munir also gave more time to Himel than other friends. So Himel is happy to find Munir in the huge campus of the university.
Himel came to the university and realized that there is no narrowness among the people of the world yet. But at first everyone looked at Himel or his feet with crooked eyes. Not anymore. Everyone is quite friendly. The best thing is the teacher-teacher interaction here. They have revived him. Taught the meaning of life. But Himel hid himself. Likes to walk alone. Fight alone. Go ahead alone. After a few days of inertia, Munir became close with several other friends. Formed a circle of friends. Those were the side of life’s hardest to hardest times.
The restless wind of youth made him random too. Where did I know that when young men saw any beautiful girl on the street, in a dream at night, he made her his wife. No, he never did. He knew the boundaries of sadha and sadhya. So the luxury of living in the dream of a beauty did not overwhelm him. He wanted a man who would be his companion. Dare to go far. Not at all, at least try to understand him. The two of them will build a small family in a small nest together. Yes, he found Arpita. In fact, Arpitai came, became the light in his life. At the same time studying in the university and identity. Student of the same department. One year junior. Somehow, the journey of the relationship from the seminar. From then on, the two of them had a good understanding. There is no false decency and assurance. Where relationships are not quicksand. Not to be lost in the abyss of little forgetting.
With the consent of both the families, they decided to get married one by one after finishing their studies. After graduating as usual, Himel joined a corporate office and Arpita joined a private bank. Then new life begins. Walk the path together. Newly arranged their own world.
After 6/7 years. One afternoon.
Himel sees his father playing in the garden with his grandchildren. Running and jumping. This is like complete happiness. All rewards received. There is no more want. Only boys and girls can be real people. There is a real, big shortage of real people in the world now. After a while, Arpita also came and sat next to Himel.
After 32/33 years. Today. One night.
Life comes in the evening and sees Himel, there is no match in the book of life. There is no demand or imperfection. The efforts and sincerity of his parents, the grace of the Creator and his faith in himself did not allow him to fall behind. Not to come to earth to stop. He did not give up. Stood up and overcame all obstacles. Moving forward. As much as possible. And, leaving behind is the gray past.
