    I am a bit confused. I don’t know whom to support- the cm or the evicted families. I am really in a dilemma. Because from my childhood I have some friends from such slums or colonies and I witnessed their culture, there rowdiness, anti social activities, slang languages, destructive mentality, ill behavior, intolerance, envy towards wealthy people, jealousy and so many other things and I am really disgusted of them and avoid them as much as possible. I rally feel relieved when I am not in touch with them. On the other hand, I can’t support the forcible eviction on the humanitarian ground as they are poor people. I don’t know who is right… the CM or the evictees… pls perdon me.

    akta golpo bole ni. ak kale adaloter chottore vara kora sakhsi ghure berato.akta murgi churir mamalay ukilbabu amon ak sakshike shikhiye poriye neye elan. sakhshike protipokhsher ukil jera korlen ” chorai pranitike apni ki dekhechilen?”
    Sakshi- akshobar dekhechi.
    Ukil- oti koto boro chilo?
    Sakshi tokhon vule gache ukilbabu ki shikhiechilo. Tobe grame ganje goru churir mamla khub hoto. chatur sakhshi sei kotha vebe nijer buker kache hat uthiye dakhie bollo-
    ei ato boro.
    Ukil- Mahamanya dharmabotar, dekhun murgita naki onar buker soman unchu chilo.
    Sakshi tokhon nijer vul bujhte pere bole uthlo-
    Dharmabotar, Ukilbabu nicher hathta tulbar somoy dichchen na. annya hathta oporer hater niche rekhe bollo – ei ato boro.

    Thik temni. Kolkatake London kora hobe bole bola holo. Ota kon saler London seta bola baki ache. asole 1700 saler London prothome kora hobe. Tarpor 300 bochor pore akhonkar London hobe. 1700 sale Londoner gorib gurboder amni hal e chilo.
