Akka, My Mother : -Not Just a Biography
Emotions and language....! Are there any specifications to express emotions? In terms of emotions, it's an expressive language. All the emotions are the same irrespective of cast, race, religion and more importantly languages. It's a universal language. The face, the eyes and the lips are the media to reach one's heart and mind. Expression is the best mirror of any thought or emotion. The other term of the same category is 'Feelings'. It is more expressive. To feel means to understand or experience by heart and mind. Music is also related with emotions. I heard a lot of music since my childhood. I hardly remember the lyrics but can't forget the music. The violin piece used in 'Kaheta hai babul...' sung by Amitjee is close to my heart. 'Rang dilki dhadkan...' an old number sung by Latajee. This is the emotional music. I would like to share an experience of a Japanese movie 'Midnight Sun', without any subtitles. It touched me because of the emotionalize characters. I involved in the movie without understanding a single word. When I decided to write Akka's story, I never thought about the language but the emotions of it. My sincere wish was to reach the maximum people. I recalled my teacher. He used to say 'read in between two lines'. When I wrote the story and felt its tender feel not in the words but in the blank spaces. The big question how to take the readers to these blank spaces of emotions? While transforming emotions in to words two things emerged. Number one 'emotions' never err. Number two the 'words' may err. Just imagine what would be the fate of the mankind without emotions? Every act was expressive. The expressive emotions converted in languages. But the base of every language is none other than the 'emotion'. Which language was used by Mother Teresa who lapped the innocent orphan for the first time? Was it Bengali, Hindi or English? Her angel's work never faced this language problem. The tender touch of her palm brought a smile on the face of an innocent child. All the five senses of a human being work to teach love, peace and harmony. How Akka faced the totally different atmosphere in the father in law family? The language was never been an obstacle to her. Then why we are worried about the language? Let's feel it. The two beautiful mothers will guide us. Don't stop the stream of 'E M O T I O N S.' Let it flow. Please enter in the characters and be a part of this story of 103 years. It is simple, readable and emotional. Experience it.
