Witness my time . . .

যেইখানে সহসা প্রথম এক দিন
এঞ্জিন এল ব’লে
মানুষের কাছে তাহা ঐশী ব’লে মনে হয়েছিল
সেইখানে আগেকার দিনগুলো কেটে যেত
আত্ম—পরমাত্মার
অন্য এক অনন্য অভ্যাসে ।

ওদের সংসারটা ফুটপাতে ! প্রায় প্রতিদিন নিয়ম করে— ওদের মা’ এই ফুটপাতে রেখে যান ! তারপর—শুরু হয় মানুষের কাছে থেকে কিছু সাহায্য পাওয়ার— অপেক্ষা ! দিনমান এই ফুটপাত যেন— ওদের আপন ঠিকানা, ঘর-সংসার ! এখানেই পরিচয়— বেওয়ারিশ একটি কুকুরের সাথে । ওরা কুকুরটিকে ‘টাইগার’ নামে ডাকে । প্রিয়া—প্রতিবন্ধী, কথা বলতে পারে না, সারাক্ষণ হুইল চেয়ারে বসে থাকে। তার গলায় একটা সাহাযে্যর আবেদন ঝুলতে থাকে ! খুব সুন্দর করে হাসতে পারে— ছোট এই মেয়েটি । হুইল চেয়ারে বসেই কুকুরটিকে আদর করে সে । আমি— এই সব কথা গুলো যার কাছে থেকে জানলাম তার নাম—পূজা । ন্যাড়া মাথার ছোট পূজা, ফুটপাতের উপর একটা কাঁথা বিছিয়ে—সেখানেই শুয়ে পরে—তারপর আকাশের ঠিকানায় তাকিয়ে থাকে ! সেদিন— ওদের ফুটপাতের সংসারটা দেখে এলাম । আহা—ফুটপাতের জীবন . . .
