A Poem Like Letter To My Faraway Friend Pranab Chakraborty! - Poem by nimal dunuhinga

*[The films are a 'coming of age' narrative in the vein of a bildungsroman, describing the childhood, education and early maturity of a young Bengali named Apu (Apurba Kumar Roy) in the early part of the 20th century. The first film Pather Panchali (Song of the Little Road) is about Apu's early experiences in rural Bengal, as the son of a poor but high caste family. His father Harihar, a Brahmin, has difficulty in supporting his family. After the death of Apu's sister, Durga, the family moves to the holy city of Benares.
In the second film Aparajito (The Unvanquished) , the family's finances are still precarious. After his father dies there, Apu and his mother Sarbajaya come back to a village in Bengal. Despite incessant poverty, Apu manages to get formal schooling and turns out to be a brilliant student. The growing Apu comes into conflict with his mother. Later, when his mother dies too, he has to learn to live alone.
In the third film Apur Sansar (The World of Apu) , attempting to become a writer, Apu accidentally finds himself pressured to marry a girl who has rejected her mentally ill bridegroom. Their blossoming marriage ends in her death in childbirth, after which the despairing Apu abandons his child, but eventually returns to accept his responsibilities.]-Wikipedia

How are you my friend
hope you're fine
I too still breath here?
And I want to let you know
that I am listening
that great Bengali singer
S.D.Burman's ''Sun Mere Bandhu'
All of a sudden my thoughts
dragged to one of the greatest film makers
*Satyajit Ray from your place?
Still I live with his trilogy
and Apu haunts in my mind wherever I go?
In the song of the road
Am I an orphan?
Thanks & best regards!
an unseen friend nimal
in this precarious World?
