Neelabh merges in sunshine, water, sand and air becoming the vast the ocean he was

Kavita Srivastava 26 Feb 2018
At 6 am about 14 of us reached the Elliot's  beach where we immersed Neelabhs  ashes deep in the sea. Sumir went with one of the Fisher folk went till the point he was not lifted off the tide, but the fisherman went further in and immersed the two urns of Ashes. It was a very peaceful experience. With the rising sun, sometimes hidden behind clouds, then finally rose up shimmering the waters. We sang songs Celebrating nature, water, waves. The tide going up and down.

After being at the beach we walked down the promenade drinking coconut water and then ate one of the best "tiffin" breakfasts at a place called Murugan.The great foodie Neelabh will always be remembered.

How Begum Rokeya dared women to dream

Rokeya Sakhawat Hossain, considered to be India's first Bengali Muslim Feminist, challenged the social status quo of her time and ridiculed outmoded gender practices while preaching the relevance of equality, women’s education and freedom. Her feminist utopian story 'Sultana's Dream' attempted to make role reversals showing men as the inferior sex and questioned the violence and discrimination perpetuated through the category of gender, providing a critique of patriarchy and the affect of it on women’s lives. Watch this SabrangIndia exclusive video to get a glimpse of Begum Rokeya's legacy and listen to what her admirers have to say about her.
