ময়মনসিংহের বর পুত্র শিল্পাচার্য জয়নুল আবেদিনের ব্রহ্ম পুত্র নদে— গোধূলি বেলায়, মাঝি ভাসাইয়াছে তার ছোট তরি— যাত্রীরা পারাপার . . . 

বাংলাদেশ কৃষি বিশ্ববিদ্যালয়ের সাংবাদিক সমিতি আয়োজিত কর্মশালাটি শেষ করে আমরা ঘুরতে বেড়িয়ে ছিলাম। দেখা হলো বাংলাদেশ কৃষি বিশ্ববিদ্যালয় ক্যাম্পাস, জব্বারের চত্তর, ব্রহ্ম পুত্র নদ । বিশ্ববিদ্যালয় তার ৫৭ বছর উদযাপন উপলক্ষে প্রস্তুতি চলছিল, কথা হলো অনেকের সাথে । বিশ্ববিদ্যালয়ের ফটোগ্রাফী ক্লাবটির সদস্যদের উদ্যোগে ক্যাম্পাসে চলছিল ফটোগ্রাফী প্রদর্শনী । সদস্যরা বিশ্ববিদ্যালয়ের নানা জায়গার ছবি তুলেছেন । সেটা দেখলাম । প্রদর্শনীর ছবি গুলো দেখে মনে হলো—অংশগ্রহণকারীরা চেষ্টা করেছেন তাদের ক্যাম্পাসটির পুরো চিত্রটি এক দেয়ালে বন্দী করতে । আমার কাছে মনে হলো— ক্ষেত্র বিশেষে তারা অনেকটাই সফল হয়েছেন, তাদেরকে সবাইকে ধন্যবাদ জানাই। 

ব্রহ্ম পুত্র নদে ছোট ছোট রঙিন পাল তোলা নৌকা গুলো অসাধারন ! লাল, সবুজ, হলুদ নানা রঙের সব পাল ; নদে ভেসে বেড়ানোর জন্য এ সব পালতোলা নৌকাই উত্তম, তবে সাঁতার জানাটা জরুরী ! দীর্ঘ বছর পর আবার এই নদে বেড়ানো হলো। সবার সাথে সময়টি খুব চমৎকার কাটলো । 

আমি বাংলাদেশ কৃষি বিশ্ববিদ্যালয়ের উপাচার্য ড. মো. আলী আকবর সহ আয়োজক কৃষি বিশ্ববিদ্যালয়ের সাংবাদিক সমিতির সকলকে ধন্যবাদ জানাই । বিশেষ করে করে ধন্যবাদ জানাই কর্মশালায় অংশগ্রহণকারী সকল সাংবাদিক— শিক্ষার্থীদেরকে । তাদের আথিতীয়তা এবং আন্তরিকতা আমাকে মুগ্ধ করেছে । আমার পক্ষ থেকে সবাইকে আবার ধন্যবাদ জানাই . . .

ব্রক্ষপুত্র নদ, বাংলাদেশ কৃষি বিশ্ববিদযালয়

অন্তহীন অন্ধকারে হেঁটে যেতে যেতে . . . 

১.শারীরিক ভাবে এবার যেন একটু বেশী অসুস্থ হয়ে পড়লাম ! নানা ঔষধ-পত্র, ডাক্তারি পরামর্শ নিয়ম-নীতি সবই হলো ! কিন্তু অসুস্থতা যেন আমার পিছু ছাড়তে চাইছে না ! শরীরের ক্ষতটা, আমাকে দিনরাত জানান দেয়; সে  আমার সঙ্গেই আছে—আমি তথৈবচ ! পৃথিবীর কিছু সুন্দরের সাথে আরো কিছু দিন কাটাতেই ইচ্ছা হয়—মৃত্যু অনিবার্য ; তাকে  অনুভব করার শক্তি দিয়ে—অর্জন করতে চাই । 

২. মধ্য রাত থেকেই থেমে থেমে বৃষ্টি হচ্ছে এখানে ! মেঘের ‘নানা’ কাউকে কিছু না বলেই চলে গেলেন—না ফেরার দেশে ! আমি তাকে যতটুকু দেখেছি—খুব সহজ একজন মানুষ ছিলেন । উত্তর কাফরুল কেন্দ্রীয় জামে মসজিদে নিয়মিত নামাজ পড়তেন— তিনি । এই মসজিদে জানাজা শেষে করে; তার ইচ্ছা অনুযায়ী, গ্রামের বাড়ী বাড্ডা, বেরাইদ কবরস্থানে তার দাফন সম্পন্ন করা হলো। 

আমি— মেঘকে মাটির একটি টুকরা হাতে দিয়ে বললাম, বাবা এই মাটির টুকরাটা তোমার নানার কবরের উপর দিয়ে দাও ! ছোট মেঘ— তার ছোট ছোট হাতে তার নানার কবরের উপর মাটির টুকরাটা রাখল ! সাত বছরের মানুষটির এই প্রথম অভিজ্ঞতা হলো—কবরস্থানের।  একটু পরে সে— আমাকে জিজ্ঞেস করে,বাবা ওরা নানা’কে মাটির উপর শুইয়ে দিলো কেন ? আমি বললাম বাবা, মানুষ মরে গেলে এভাবেই মাটির উপর শুইয়ে—করব দিতে হয় । তোমার নানা এখন— আল্লার কাছে চলে গিয়েছেন। তুমি এখন আল্লার কাছে দোয়া করবা— সে যেন শান্তিতে থাকেন ।

Finally, I congratulate to John Stanmeyer for his beautiful and brilliant picture, to get awarded the WORLD PRESS PHOTO of the year,to me it’s appear in a new look with a great notice and message, thanks to approach this kind of work to us, and thanks to the World Press Photo to Honor him . . .

Caption: African migrants on the shore of Djibouti city at night, raising their phones in an attempt to capture an inexpensive signal from neighboring Somalia—a tenuous link to relatives abroad. Djibouti is a common stop-off point for migrants in transit from such countries as Somalia, Ethiopia and Eritrea, seeking a better life in Europe and the Middle East.

John Stanmeyer Expression :

Humbled. Honored. Speechless. Thank you to all for your kind words.

Have been asked countless times today what this photograph, Signal, means to me. While standing on the shores of the Red Sea that evening in Djibouti City, it felt as if I was photographing all of us — you, me, our brothers and sisters — all desperately trying to connect to our loved ones. In this tenuous period of human migration where despair and hope simultaneously intertwine, we seek to find comfort, a sense of balance, a desire to be home, reconnecting to something stable, reassuring. This photograph of Somalis trying to “catch” a signal is an image of all of us as we stand at the crossroads of humanity, where we must ask ourselves what is truly important, demanding our collective attention in a global society where the issues of migration, borders, war, poverty, technology and communication intersect.
