Our story for this  month is Babar Binu Mamar Bari by Gour Kishor Ghosh (June 22, 1923 - December 15, 2000) whose experiences in different professions and particularly as a journalist gave him the opportunity for observing life in different aspects. Our present selection is the story of a quest, the quest of a father by his son. The author wants to touch his father who continually eludes him like the moonshine. His father, too, escapes to another world, the world of a so-called Binu Mama whose existence is not known to his children. It seems, Binu Mamar Bari (Uncle Binu's house) is a myth, a fairyland that both father and son are searching.
