The Colors of Silence, by Shahnaz Parvin

This photograph has lots of meaning to me, the colorful sunset, the silence of nature, the tranquil water, as if reflects all our sadness of life. It is from the place named Rangamati, a hill tract from the south-eastern parts of Bangladesh. It’s a land where civilizations and times intermix, a beautiful place which attracts people from all over the country, and the person in the middle is my nephew Efti. Regardless of what happened on the trip, where we lost our money, then the tour for us would almost end. But we would surely regret, if we decided not come until this. Just before we reached the Kaptai Bridge of Randamati, this enchanting boat rides in the color of silence as if making the meaning of life complete.

    I don’t see sadness at all. All I see in this photo is hope. Maybe I am wrong, maybe I am right, but the truth is all in some corner of this boy’s mind. Nice photo. :)
