A Letter to Mother: From Destruction to Construction

Arup Mitra (Author)
Synopsis It is a story written in the form of a letter from a son to his mother. It unravels the sufferings of the mother that the son recounts at a special moment of his life. Through a particular case the narration sings the melody of several unsung words of misery of countless Indian women, who have either passed away or still continue to dwell in misfortune. Even in the midst of affluence they stand as the most helpless lot. The story unfolds some of the basic causes of their vulnerability and implicitly highlights the means and ways to their empowerment. That it is better to be exploited in the labour market than at home is reflected in the analysis. The text carries out a psychological analysis of the characters and tries to capture the dilemmas, conflicts, disturbances and the struggle of the human mind to retain peace. It ends with a note of optimism as it unfolds the journey of life from the domestic to the eternal and celebrates the resilience of the human spirit, which ultimately remains beyond all sufferings and sorrow. What is transient meets its end but only to rise again in the sky of eternity, light and hope.
