RE: War and Peace

in BDCommunitylast month

Sakib, in a way it is an exercise for you. We often forget what kind of bubble we live in. We tend to forget what is happening today outside our bubble somewhere else in the world. 70s was a difficult for bengal in general, and I am talking about both bengals. My extended family was deeply political and several members was involved in Naxalite movement. I have heard and experience many things, which still gives me shivers. However, the lesson I take from these things, is peace is a gift. I must hold on to it tightly.

At first, let me apologize dada for it took me this long to reply.

For a long time i thought peace is an alluring but deceiving concept. Almost like a mirage dada. As soon as it is within my grasp, I lose it and this keep occurring almost in loop! And then I realized, this is all too humane and there's nothing to be done to avoid it. We humans are capable of both immense love and violence at the same time! But what makes us what we are is the choices we make, the roads we choose to venture upon! and everything slowly became easier.

This part of your life is quite fascinating to me dada! Ive never met someone who experiences true revolution first hand! Some might say Im using my enchanted khati ghanivanga shorishar tel by making such regards but I beg to differ:VVV Hope we would have this conversation someday over a nice shaken vodka martini perhaps. Never had one. James Bond is the one who got me fascinated with this:P Don't even know if it is any good XDXD

Sakib, sometimes it’s the small things in life that we need to enjoy. You remind me so much of myself at similar age that you have no idea :) So with that said I have made something that you asked for this evening. It’s a pity I can’t share it with you in person; so I will drink your share :). Did I ever tell you that I am a good bartender as well?

Dang!! Ask and ye shall receive:p im kinda jealous tbh dada! A virgin olive wouldve been a nice touch. And that pic shouldve included me in it:vv i guess what remains being seen depends on maktub:)

I ran out of regular vodka. Your didi goes to Moscow, and brings original Beluga. But due to COVID she haven’t been there in 6 months so we are out. I had some cucumber vodka at home, which is great for summer. But doesn’t go with olive in a conventional Martini. So...

That is pure class right there dada:) moscow to texas, desert to cold dystopia all at once!! Id love to see Kremlin one day!!! Btw cucumber vodka, is it flavoured or something?? Like cucumber water?? Ive had some cucumber sodas with some absolute but it wasnt a pleasant experience! Too savory for my taste!

I have never been seen Kremlin myself;)

Yes, it’s cucumber flavored vodka. These days flavored Vodka is very popular in the US. Obviously Russians will says its blasphemy! LOL!

If you go to kremlin ever, they will make FSB surveil you for sure:vv only cause of the cucumber vodka:p I can see somebody writing a biopic on you like that. Tale of the infamous Melchizedek- How I caught this centuries greatest spy :vvvv
