Photographer's Note

I took this shot at Taki (a town near Kolkata).. In this photo you can see the Ichhamati River.. At the bottom of the frame you see the India and the other side of the river is Bangladesh.. It is an international border between these two countries..
It's being 64 years our motherland was broken unscientifically into two parts by some power hungry politicians. We, the common people of Bengal never wanted this. Though we speak same, eat same, wear same, probably the thoughts are also same unfortunately we are the inhabitants of two different countries.


At the occasion of Bijoya Dashomi, the last day of Durga puja the emotion of partition victims breaks the international border to get together with their near and dear ones. The citizens of Bangladesh and West Bengal, India both cross the border by boat to find their lost soul. This is the river Ichhamati flows between two countries. But this is not just a river for us this is the barbed wire over our heart. Because, We are BENGALI(The inhabitants of West Bengal and Bangladesh are called Bengali).
Thanks for your visit..
