Artabit No 11. True Story of a “Man”

Manna Dey Songs (Bengali) in relation to a person who left a job many years ago and eventually went back to the same place to work ! (24.10.2014., Manna Dey’s Death anniversary; it was a co-incidence that this was written today without realising that it was his Death Anniversary before the initial publication)

One of my friends came to the UK from India and had worked as a Staff Grade (Medical Officer) in a hospital after a couple of years of Senior House Officer job in another hospital. As a Staff Grade the potential for further progress in career was bleak. Therefore, he decided to leave the job to work as Specialist Registrar in FTTA posts with a dream to get Type 1 Specialist Registrar job that would allow him to work as a Consultant in the UK. To do that he had to leave his family at the place where he was working as a Staff Grade as he had bought a house there and his children were settled in the local school . He did not want to disturb his children’s life and education. Therefore, he kept his family there. He worked in various places all over the UK, and had eventually got the CCT and a Consultant job in a remote place far away from his home. For 10 years, he could not even go home regularly because of the distance. At last he managed to get a Consultant job in the previous hospital near his home where his family was living. This composition is dedicated to his dedication and glorious achievement that have been associated with so much of pain and hardship during his incredible journey through the life.

Read

1. He felt quite frustrated in the Staff Grade job as there was no prospect of progress and he was just being used as a “pair of hands.”

“Ami je jalsaghare beloarhi jhar” Listen

2. When he wanted to leave the job as he had felt that the management did not appreciate his worth and he was not making optimal progress in his profession:

“Ei to sedin tumi amare bojhale” Listen

3. The management wanted him to stay:

“Sundori go dohai dohai maan koro na” Listen

4. He was very upset about the working environment that had changed substantially over the years. The majority of his friends had moved on, some overseas, some to better jobs in the UK:

“Coffee Houser sei adda-ta aaj are nei” Listen

5. The management sent a messenger to persuade him to talk to them:

“Lolita go oke aaj chole jete bol na” Listen

6. When it was clear to the management that he would not stay:

“Obhimaney chole jeo na” Listen

7. But he was very upset about the place and wanted to move:

“Ei shohor thekey aro anek durey” Listen

8. When he resigned the management said:

“Katha dao abar asbey” Listen

9. The management tried to frighten him regarding the uncertainty of getting a Type 1 job. But he was in a mood to venture for the Type 1 job and couldn’t care less:

“Jiboney ki pabona bhulechhi se bhabona

Samneyja dekhi jani na seki Asol ki nakol sona” Listen

10. When he was leaving the management said:

“Abar hobey to dekha

E-dekhai shesh dekha noi to

Ki chokhey tomay dekhi Bojhate parini aajo hoyto” Listen

11. His message to the management at the time of leaving:

“Tumi are dekona

Tumi are dekona

Pichhu dekona

Ami chole jai

Sudhu bole jai

Tomar hridoye more

Smriti rekhona” Listen

12. He was almost possessed by the idea of getting a Type 1 job:

“O keno eto sundari holo”

“ও কেন এত সুন্দরী হলো

ও কেন এত সুন্দরী হলো

এমনি করে ফিরে তাকালো

দেখে তো আমি মুগ্ধ হবোই

আমি তো মানুষ

ও কেন এত সুন্দরী হলো

সবে যখন আকাশ জুড়ে মেঘ জমেছে

ঝড় উঠেনি বাতাসটাতে ঘোর লেগেছে

ও কেন তখন উড়িয়ে আচল

ও কেন তখন উড়িয়ে আচল

খোলা চুলে বাইরে এলো

দেখে তো আমি মুগ্ধ হবোই

আমি তো মানুষ

ও কেন এত সুন্দরী হলো

সবে যখন প্রাণে আমার মন জেগেছে

পৃথিবীটা একটুখানি বদলে গেছে

ও কেন তখন হঠাত্ এমন

ও কেন তখন হঠাত্ এমন

বিনা কাজে সামনে এলো

দেখে তো আমি মুগ্ধ হবোই

আমি তো মানুষ

ও কেন এত সুন্দরী হলো”

Listen

13. He started searching wildly for a Type 1 job and had wanted it at any cost:

“Hoyto tomari jonnyo

Hoyechhi premey je bonnyo

Jani tumi anonnyo

Aashaar haat barhai

Jodi khakhono e prantey

Cheyechhi tomay jantey

Shuru theke shesh prantey

Shudhu chhutey gechhi tai

Ami je nijei matto

Janina tomar shorto

Jodi ba ghatey anortho

Tobu tomakey chai”

“হয়তো তোমারি জন্য

হয়েছি প্রেমে যে বন্য

জানি তুমি অনন্য

আশার হাত বাড়াই

যদি কখনো এ প্রান্তে

চেয়েছি তোমায় জানতে

শুরু থেকে শেষ প্রান্তে

শুধু ছুটে গেছি তাই

আমি যে নিজেই মত্ত

জানিনা তোমার শর্ত

যদি বা ঘটে অনর্থ

তবু তোমাকে চাই”

Listen

14. While pursuing for the Type 1 job he realised the hard reality:

“E nodi emon nodi

Jal chai ektu jodi

Duhat bhorey ushno balui daay amakey

E priya emon priya

Sohagey bhorley hiya

Keboli, keboli

Bidrup are banka kothai boltey thakey

E priyar chokher pata

Chhayatey hoyna kalo

Kokhono noyontaray

Jhorena shnigdho alo

Shudhu je joley aagun

Tobu tar amoni gun

Purhbe jeneo mon je amar

Takei dakhey take dakhey

E priyar nei to jana

Khoma je kaakey boley

Mamota koruna she

Jotoney ehriye choley

Garoley bhora shey pran

Tobu taar amoni taan

Morbey jeneo e praan aamaar

Chay je taakey

Chay je taakey”

Listen

15. Given the Type 1 job situation in the UK, people considered his venture as madness. He was told by the Chairman of the Deanery Training Committee that his venture was nothing but simple madness. And his response was:

“Jakhon keu amakey paagol boley” Listen

16. The Chairman of the Deanery Training Committee had also explained the hard reality:

“Ko phonta chokher jol

Phelechho je tumi” Listen

17. He started thinking whether he had taken the right decision to venture in to the unknown:

“Ami phul naa hoye

Kaanta hoyei besh chhilaam” Listen

18. He attended few interviews for the Type 1 job but did not get one. He became frustrated and confused, and had started thinking of considering other options: 

“Ami kone pothey je choli

Kone kotha je boli

Tomay samney peyeo khunje berhai

Moner choraagali

Sei golitei dhuktey giye

Hochot kheye dekhi

Bondhu sejey bipod aamaar

Darhiye achhe eki

Bhoyeri kharhate

Hoye gelaam pahtaboli

Ekhon ami lengchey mori

Paliye jaabaar raasta dhori

Korechhi ki bhul

Nijei nijer dukaan moli”

Listen

19. Then he started reasoning to himself:

“Sobai to sukhi hotey chay …

Aashaay aashaay tobu

Ei ami thaaki

Jodi aasey konodin sei sukhpaakhi”

Listen

20. He was getting multiple offers for FTTA jobs that he was not aiming to do:

“Rangini koto mon

Mone ditey chaay

Ki korey bojhai kichhu

Chaai na chaai na chaai na”

Listen

21. Eventually he got the Type 1 job and was ecstatic:

“Ek-e ongey ato roop

Dekhini to agey”

Listen

22. The euphoria, however, did not last long due to the hardship and other difficulties associated with the Type 1 job:

“Ki cheyechhi are ki jey pelaam

Saandher prodeep jaaltey giye

Nijei aami purhe gelaam”

Listen

23. After completing training and getting CCT the search for a Consultant job started:

“Shaaono ratey jodi

Sworoney aase morey

Bahirey jharho bohey

Noyoney baari jhorey”

Listen

24. He worked as a locum Consultant in a hospital for a while and occasionally had expressed his intention to move to a better job as a ploy to get the permanent Consultant job there:

“E-to raag noy go E-jey obhimaan” Listen

25. But he was denied the permanent Consultant job there. It was very upsetting for him:

“Besh to tai hoke

Dekha noy tai hoke

Omni phurabey sob

Maani na ta maani na”

Listen

26. After working as a locum Consultant in another hospital he got a permanent Consultant job:

“Jarhoar jhumko thekey ekta moti

Khosey porhechhe

Ami, kurhiye niyechhi …

Sokolei dekhbey aamaar onamikar

Oporoop  ekti motir haazaar baahaar”

Listen

27. But it was in a remote place:

“Koto durey are niye jabye bolo

Kothaay pather praanto

Thikaana haarano charonero goti

Hoyni ki tobu klaanto”

Listen

28. He felt so lonely there:

“Barho eka lagey ei aandharey …

Saaraati diner kajey

Ki jani ki bhebey aami

Kemoney chhilem bhuley

Ei bedonakey”

Listen

29. His day to day life outside work was confined to his room:

“Chaar dewaaler modhyey naanaan drishyokey

Saajiye niye dekhi baahir biswokey

Aakaash korey chhaad-takey

Barhai  jodi hat-takey

Muthoy dhori diner

Suryo taaraar raat-takey”

Listen

30. He felt nostalgic about his old hospital near his home:

“Khub jaantey ichhey korey

Khub jaante ichhey korey

Tumi ki sei aager motoi achho

Naa ki onek khaani bodley gechho”

Listen

31. When approached by the old hospital for a job, his past experience there clouded his mind:

“Jaani tomaar premer joggyo aami to noi

Paachhe bhaalo besey phalo tai

Durey durey roi

Kato peyaalaa laanchhonar

Aami nirobey kori jey paan”

Listen

32. In the mean time he realised the truth about life:

“Jodi kagojey lekho naam

Kagoj chhirhey jabey

Pathorey lekho naam

Pathor kwoye jabey

Hridoye lekho naam

Se naam roye jabey”

Listen

33. He discovered other interests outside his job:

“Chaand dektey giye aami

Tomaay dekhey phelechhi

Kone jochhonay beshi alo

Ei dotanay porhechhi”

Listen

34. He carried on with his life:

“Aami niraalaay bosey

Bedhechhi aamaar

Swapono been”

Listen

35. He continued to feel nostalgic about his old hospital near his home:

“Katodin dekhini tomay

Tobu mone porhe tobo mukhokhaani”

Listen

36. He started realising that it would be better to move to his old hospital near his home:

“Deep chilo, shikha chilo

Sudhu tumi chhilena boley

Aalo jollo na

Bhasha chhilo, kotha chhilo

Kachhey dakley na boley

Mone kotha bollo na

Jhorna kemoney hoy nodi

Saagor na dhakey kobhu jodi

Tai jetey jetey thamlo sey

Boye chollo na

Book bhora aasha niye

Mone aamaar”

Listen

37. He decided to move to his old hospital near his home as it would be complimentary to each other:

“Aamaar na jodi thakey sur

Tomaar achhey

Tumi ta debey”

Listen

38. He was informed that a Consultant job in his old hospital near his home might become available

“Ei kuley aami are oi kuley tumi

Maajhkhaaney nodi oi boye choley jaay

Tobuo tomar aami pai ogo sarha

Duti paakhi duti kuley gaan jeno gaay

Jugey jugey tumi morey

Bedhechiley phool-o dorey

Tai aaj bosey thaaki aashaay aashaay

Durey achho tobu kotha hoy binimoye

Janina to ki nibirh ei porichoy

Dekhi ami chokh meley

Monero maadhuri dheley

Tumi je go bhesey eley praaner kheyay

Maajhkhaaney nodi oi…..

Listen

39. Eventually a Consultant job in his old hospital near his home became available. He was a bit apprehensive, in case:

“O Chaand

Samley raakho jochhonakey

Samley raakho jochhonakey

Kaaro nojor laagtey paarey

Megheder urho chithi

Urheo to aastey parey

Jholmol koriyo na go

Tomaar oi oto alo

Beshi roop holey porey

Saabdhaaney thaakai bhaalo

Mukher oi urhnita ke ektu raakho

Khulo naako dohaai ekebarey …

Sei phaankey tumio kokhone churi jabey

Kaakey paabey baanchaatey tomaarey”

Listen

40. He was invited for the interview and the management in the hospital he was working did not want him to go elsewhere:

“Naa naa jeona

O shesh paata go

Shaakhaay tumi thaako”

Listen

41. Before the interview a lot of mixed thoughts came to his mind regarding the interview:

“O aamaar mone jomunaar

Ongey ongey bhaabtorongey kotoi khela

Bondhu ki teerey bosei modhur hesey

dekhbey sudhu saara bela”

“ও আমার মন যমুনার

অঙ্গে অঙ্গে ভাব তরঙ্গে কতোই খেলা

বঁধূ কি তীরে বসেই মধুর হেসে

দেখবে শুধু সারা বেলা

ও রূপের মিথ্যে গরব

অমন যদি বিরূপ থাকে

ও গুণের কি দাম বলো

লাজেই যদি আগুন ঢাকে

কবে আর, কবে আর,

কবে আর আসবে সময় বাসবে ভালো

ভাসবে ময়ূরপঙ্খি ভেলা

বঁধূ কি তীরে বসেই মধুর হেসে

দেখবে শুধু সারা বেলা

কি অতো বিচার করা অবিচারের ভয় করে যে

কি অতো হিসাব করা বেহিসাবের ভুল ধরে যে

এখনোও ডুব না দিলে

করবে সিনান হয় গো কবে

গাগোরি ভরার বেলা

অবহেলায় সাঙ্গ হবে

মনের ওই, মনের ওই

মনের ওই সোনা যে হয় আনমোনা গো

দিন গোনাতে মাটির ঢেলা

বঁধূ কি তীরে বসেই মধুর হেসে

দেখবে শুধু সারা বেলা

ও আমার মন যমুনার

অঙ্গে অঙ্গে ভাব তরঙ্গে কতোই খেলা

বঁধূ কি তীরে বসেই মধুর হেসে

দেখবে শুধু সারা বেলা”

Listen

42. He was offered the job of his life:

“Ei eto aalo eto aakaash

Agey dekhini

Koi chokhey porheni

Saaraa jibone paabaar aashaay

Du haat petechhi …

Egiye jaabaar sopno niye

Egiye jetey chai”

Listen

43. His response to the interview panel:

“Ki dekhley tumi amatey …

Aamaar onubhob bina, ei onubhuti

Kaukey jay na shekhano …

Biraat prithibi, dikey dikey koto ayojone

Aami ki korey bojhai, tomakey peyechi

Aar kichhu nei proyojone”

Listen

44. The management in the hospital he was working was obviously upset when he had told them that he would leave the job:

“Tumi nijer mukhei bolley jedin

Sob-i tomaar obhinoy

Sotyi kono kichhu noy

Aami dukkho peleo

Khushi holaam jeney”

“তুমি নিজের মুখেই বললে যেদিন

সবই তোমার অভিনয়

সত্যি কোন কিছু নয়

আমি দুঃখ পেলেও

খুশী হলাম জেনে

আমি মানুষ চেয়েই করেছিলাম ভুল

তুমি ছিলে শুধু রং করা পুতুল

আমার ভুল ভাঙ্গাতে

ধুলো হয়ে পড়লে যে তাই ভেঙ্গে

আমি দুঃখ পেলেও খুশী হলাম জেনে

আনন্দ আর নেইগো যেখানে

শুধু  মুখের হাসি সাঁজিয়ে রেখে কাজ কি সেখানে

এই বুকের জ্বালা বুকেই গোপন করে

বলো লাভ কি হবে নকল মালা পরে

যখন সাজানো এ মনের উপর পর্দা দিলে টেনে

আমি দুঃখ পেলেও খুশী হলাম জেনে”

Listen

45. The response of the management in his old hospital near his home when he joined the job: 

“Sei to aabar kaachhey eley

Etodin durey thekey

Bolona ki sukh tumi peley”
