রিঙ্গণপুর – তকিব তৌফিক
“Thorns! Thorns means cracks. The limitations of the independence of the two countries! The sky is divided, the water of the sea is divided. This sharing seems strange to Azad. Then it is a pity why he did not come to earth as a bird! His right to roam everywhere. ”
This idea of Azad seems to be in line with the thinking of most of the youth of today. When adolescence passes and youth catches up with us, a big part of the change of feeling goes through the building of freedom. We always want to be independent, we don’t want to accept any obstacles. Most young readers of the present day think that it is the fault of the youth to dislike this rigid rule, or for some other reason – that novels are not being written about society or social issues. Writers of the present day are spending their lives writing novels about love-marriage or ghostly genres and giving critics the opportunity to criticize. However, those who have complained that today’s young writers are not writing about the society, the son of Chittagong Taqib Tawfiq has presented a great novel by playing twelve of those complaints.
The first paratuku in the quotation is taken from the novel ‘Ringanpur’ written by Taqib Tawfiq. ‘Ringanpur’ has been published by Nalanda Prakashani. Ahmed Karim’s cover shows a rural atmosphere, a rural society addicted to change.
Azad, the main character of the novel ‘Ringanpur’ – whose actions or thoughts have brought out a lot of valuable content.
RINGANPUR – A neglected area along the country’s border that has been dreaming of change for years, but it was never clear who would start the journey of change. While everyone is skeptical about whether this vast region bordering Myanmar will ever change and get a touch of development, in Azad’s eyes we dream of flying free like a bird.
Author Taqib Tawfiq has been able to bring out most of the controversial issues of the present society very fluently in this novel. In this novel, we see the way in which different groups are joking about the welfare of the society and the people by throwing one society in the midst of political tensions while dreaming of building a beautiful society. Some political figures use it for their own interests, from the playgrounds of the educational institutions to the students. Those who influence, on behalf of the management council of the educational institution, on behalf of the development of the educational institution.
Azad, of the village of Miajipara in the Ringanpur region, was the first to speak out against the use of this student and educational institution for political gain, whether through his will or unwillingness. Borders – Disliked Azad Rezwan came to the forefront of the novel by raising questions against irregularities.
We see two notable political parties in the ‘Ringanpur’ region in the novel. In the greed to stay in power, the party that has been politicizing for its own interests without judging the good and the bad is ‘Mahalpanthi’ and the party that has lost its existence by not being able to survive in the conflict of power is ‘Danipanthi’. The right wing party can be said to be quite inactive, but the ‘Ringanpur’ region does not seem to be aware of the existence of development due to the violence of the Mahal party.
At the beginning, Azad came to the notice of the president of the Mahal party by protesting with logic. Even if he did not want to, the responsibility fell on the shoulders of the management council. With Azad’s departure, many lost power in the former council. The plot begins.
The news spread around. The right wing is busy organizing the party. The meeting is – the police come. Many were taken away. Everything seems to be random. Dreaming of change, the right-wing party – vows, he wants change, good change.
Durba – loves Azad in secret. Can’t say Azad wants to maintain distance. The news spread in the village very badly, there is no time to clean oneself in these cases. Azad is afraid to come near Durbar but he can’t stop it.
Innumerable characters, Azad, Brat and Durba became urgent at one time. Urgent is ‘Ringanpur’, change of Ringanpur. But what happens in the end?
Does the Ringanpur region, which represents various aspects of the present society, feel the touch of change at all? Why does Azad dislike politics and get involved in politics? Isn’t it a conspiracy of the opposition?
What happens in the end?
You must read ‘Ringanpur’ to get answers to all the questions and to get a taste of finishing in one sitting.
For those who are reading or looking for novels about society, social issues – my suggestion would be this novel by Takib Tawfiq from Nalanda Publishing.
