Phool / Flourish (1973: College Years) by Anuradha Bhaumick
Main Theme: Monn’er Golpo | The Time Traveller’s Parents
My mother has 5 photographs of herself from before her marriage. Out of which one is from an ID card and another from an interview application. No photos of her infancy, childhood or teenage years. Everything I know about her before she became a mother is through her sporadic recollections. Monn’er Golpo or The Time Traveller’s Parents is my effort to recreate photographs of my parents’ core memories from adolescence to coming of age, all through word of mouth. I’m eternally grateful for the ability to travel back in time with embroidery when my mom was just Nanda and my dad was just Somnath and they had full existences minus each other and their offsprings.
