Remember the last trip I went to Sonargaon, the ancient capital of Bengal, where little boys were floating like lily flower. While coming back from there I suddenly saw these boys in the middle of rice paddy field. They were just opposite to my boat, and trying hard to cross the flooded parcel full with green paddy. They looked adventurous, and in the middle of vast green they were like grasshoppers going on a voyage through nature.
