I'm a self-absorbed Bengali-Torontonian;
Fish comes to me raw, wrappend in seaweed, not cooked in curry;
I love watching thunderstorms and rain;
Sad endings make more sense to me than happy ones;
I hate empty walls.

    Thanks! You are my visitor number,

    Monday

    Boishakhi Celebrations


    This year, I dressed up in my mom's saree for the new year festivities- one that I coveted since I was 7 yrs old. Everytime she wore it, with all-silver jewellary, I used to think she looked like the most beautiful woman in the world.
    Obviously, I don't share her looks.....but it was still fun to dress up in it.
    Can't say the same for the show we attended though...or the backdrops(it was happening at a school auditorium) available for picture taking- Pink and blue walls or puke-yellow and grey ones! Finally had to pick the stairwell. One of these days we need to have the it outdoors in a park or something.

    Hey,

    Did anyone tell you that you look gorgeous in that Saree?

    How did the Chayanat program go? Who performed? I used to attend almost every Chayanat program in Dhaka and know some of the offcials in person. But now I have lost track. I guess I am too old for that (Actually I have to give more time to my wife & 6 month old daughter).

    aww thanks :D

    The program was good- all local artists who were great.
    But because we were all forced to sit in one hall and listen to song after song...without the respite of good food i.e. Fuchka *cry*, it got boring after a while :(.
    It would have been more festive outdoors...with more food ofcourse.
    *sigh*

    aww a 6 month old, thats so cute. cant wait for my sis to have a kid(i.e daughter)....i'm going to be the best Khala(Aunt) in the world.

    Tas

    Chayanot (from Toronto) has this problem of not understanding audience's demand. Once they came in Windsor, and for one and half hour, they sang non-stop... Well they stopped, only to fidget or fix their instruments. It was extremely boring and children started demanding to go home! If they want to attract, they should bring diversity to their performance.

    Hmm.. Chayanat usually gives no break in between songs. They should have warned this before because usually after each songs people want to applause.
