Change Agents: A Story by Dr.Syed Md.Zainul Abedin

The world is set to change.There are many change agents around us.They have various names.Think tanks,reformers,philanthropists,intellectuals,philosophers,writers,politicians and  numerous other names are there to introduce the change agents.

The change agents have special ways to approach their clients or target audience.They are good psychologists.They screw into the hearts of their audience like magic.Nothing stops them to reach their goal.

I went to a place last evening to see a gathering of thousands of people.They gathered there to get justice.Unfortunately they were deceived year after year.Their minimum right was not granted.They were seriously frustrated and the outburst of their agony compelled them to gather on the square of the road.They felt that,justice delayed meant justice denied.They chanted slogans ,displayed banners,posters,festoons and lit candles in favor of their demands.They also performed dramas,sang songs and presented dances reflecting their demands and aspirations.

 

The gathering stopped the traffic and it grew like flood drawing people from all parts of the city.It was really a passionate gathering.The faces of the people showed unlimited agony and anger.They were very aggrieved for being  denied justice.

My eyes were focused on the lofty stage built for addressing the audience and performing various events.I saw a number of individuals there.One anchor was introducing the speakers and the persons known as change agents took the microphone and spoke to the public in the audience.He made exceptional gestures.The audience hummed and raised their eyes.It appeared that the audience was charmed by his wonderful words.Their eyes beamed with hopes.Their dreams would be fulfilled soon.They were really hypnotized.I was also hypnotized by the magical words.I also hoped that his speech would engender something precious.

The climax appeared.The man made a unique gesture and declared that his latest ghost story book would give instant solutions to their demands.The myth of the justice was impregnated in the masterpiece.Everybody must dig into the content to get their dreams fulfilled.

Most of the audience remained hypnotized.Only few raised their brows.The orator stopped his historical speech.The anchor announced that a beautiful  female dancer would perform next.The audience welcomed her with warm applause.

Intelligent Little Train Passenger – By Syed Zainul Abedin

The little girl came with her parents in the large compartment of the train which stopped at the Jessore station.She was wearing a red sweater.She looked very happy in the biting chilly weather.Perhaps the train journey was a great pleasure for her.

The little girl sat for a while in the chair.But soon she started to move from place to place as the train started to move towards Dhaka.At first she came to her father who sat close to the window.Then she looked to the outside and showed the crops,people and domestic animals to her father.She became very excited when she saw the fields of mustard.She expressed her joy like a dancing butterfly.She had special love for the yellow flowers of the mustard field.At one time I joined her passion and showed her the fields of yellow mustard from the moving train.She soon befriended with me.

The little girl then walked to the other side of the compartment.She was soon joined by a number of children around her age.They gathered around us and started to see the moving sceneries from the window of the train.She asked her mother to give her toys and she organized the other children to play in joy.

At one point,a book seller came in front of the playing children.The agile girl insisted to have a story book.Her father purchased one story book.But she could not read the book.But,this did not stop her to enjoy the trip.She requested me to read the story to the children.I became very pleased to see the intelligence of the little girl.I was spell bound and started to read aloud the story based upon the folk literature.The story was about a daughter-in-law who was kidnapped by a witch and later rescued by her husband through the assistance of learned witch manager.There were many illustrations in the book.The girl and the children enjoyed the story and asked me read other stories from the book.

The girl switched soon to other activity.She asked the other children to go back to their parents and wanted to walk with her father.Her father took her to another compartment .They came back after half an hour.She took some pickles and orange in her packet.She sat again on her chair by my side.Now she was more happy to get her favorite food.She asked me take some fruit.I became very happy to see her courtesy.

After about twelve hours the train reached Dhaka.I was traveling alone.The intelligent little girl was a great companion and fellow passenger.I still remember her cute face and lovely activities.She left the compartment with her parents.I bid her farewell and wished to see her again.
