"The Open Diary on Remarkable Days" is about my life. The most important idea of writing this book is to utter an inner feeling of losing own house twice in a lifetime. My father lost his own land, his house, his property during the partition of Bengal. The British, the cunning people of the world ruled with an intention to grab the property of all the countries of the world and deposit it in their country to show the richness of their place. They ruled India for two hundred years and in the end, through its cunning tactics make two countries---India and Pakistan. Innocent people who were not involved in politics lost everything in this process of selfishness.
The second house, my father made in independent India. We lived in that house for several years. We lost our house during gruesome violence in October 1979 in independent India. The movement was to target, the non-tribal calling them Foreigners. We were the first people targeted by the Khasi (Tribal of North East India) students union. After my marriage, when my parents and siblings returned to Shillong, they found that all the window glasses, panes were broken and every day some disturbances were going on every now and then. One night, they attacked our house and tried to burn our house. In the process, we lost our property.
There are many incidents in one’s life. Everyone is unique in its nature. So everyone’s life is different from others. People, especially the young generation cannot imagine the life, we spend in our childhood. Nowadays, all have one or two children. They think about how to bring the child up properly. In our time, people were ignorant about their family and each and every family had five to ten children. I think we were happy although we were five siblings. We knew to share everything with our siblings. We loved each other. At times, we fought, and the next time we played. We experienced extended family but today’s generation like the only nuclear family. They prefer small family as the days are very demanding now.
I think readers will get some information about the past and learn through the experience of the people. I Hope, some readers can connect themselves with some situations written in this book.
