When I moved into Bahadursha Park it was nearly three o’clock in the afternoon. It was built in 1858 at the initiative of Nawab Khwaja Abdul Ghani, within the area that is sadarghat of Dhaka. It absolutely was called Victoria Park until 1947 (It was also the year in which the British finally left the Indian Sub-continent). After that, it had been renamed after Bahadur Shah II, the past Mughal emperor. But, individuals still call the accepted place Victoria Park, and never the other way around. Perhaps it really is effortless it could simply be that people got used to call the place Victoria Park for them to pronounce the word ‘Victoria’ than the word ‘bahadursha’ or. Well, I will also adhere to people’s choice.
It’s been years since I have actually went along to a place in Old Dhaka. We sat as you’re watching memorial that is tall the eastern part for the park. The was very hot and humid and I had this feeling that I needed to drink something very badly afternoon. I’d a small bottle of ‘mineral water’ with me; and so I drank from my small container as I viewed the tall memorial, which commemorates the ascending associated with the throne of Queen Victoria as Empress of India and British Empire.
Tall trees with green, vibrating leaves pervaded through its high and wide opening that is arc-like the eastern part (there are four such openings on four sides, facing four different directions) as their long and entangled branches relocated carefully in the afternoon breeze. Equipment of blue sky could possibly be seen through the branches as well as the leaves. We kept taking a look at the enchanting scene and began to feel as if I had been transported back to the era that is victorian. The scene really appeared as if Victorian in my experience; as if an item of Victorian England was peering through the opening.
We invested at the least an hour or so, sitting during the same destination and enjoying the magnificent scene. A really cool and soothing breeze blew from time to time, just Jesus knows from where, in the midst of unbearable heat of yet another dry and rainless monsoon afternoon.
From ancient time, people travelled far and wide from the accepted places of the beginning. Numerous among them settled down in remote and faraway lands, doing trade and commerce; and eventually took control of the locals. In the act, they left remnants of their own cultures and times. So, there might be bits and pieces of history and countries of remote lands, waiting become discovered by us – not so far away through the places we reside in. It’s we never cared to just take the some time difficulty to get there. Us with its origin from the past of a distant land when we get there, an entirely new world may open up right in front of.
