Neela wanted to see the sea. Her father promised to show her the sea. But he died before keeping his word. She grew up, got married, but her desire for a trip to the sea was never fulfilled. She heard of it from other visitors. Sea remained in her imagination as waves of salt water crashing against each other drowning everything. Neela’s unfulfilled desire for sea finds its relief in things that taste of salt, tear trickling down her cheeks or fresh blood coming out of a small wound. This is the story for this month, Samudrer Saadh by Manik Bandyopadhyay (May 19, 1908 – December 3, 1956). We have recorded Manik Bandyopadhyay’s masterpiece, Padmanadir Majhi for our library.
