Durjay thinks that ; he has practiced selfishness and immorality only into the ten years of the life of the opera career . After failure of secondary education Durjay was came from the village in Kolkata at Citpur opera industry with a capital of good Hindi Bengali movie singer . After few years the landless farmers boy Haronath has become hero the Durjay Kumar into the Color full poster of Chitpur . The colors of the poster have done the life exaggerated .

The first was the self-glorification . still have?Actually the life is full in two colors of a black and a white .The black cannot analysis ,When the white transparency is reflected into the life the black tint are looks . Self sting do fight against the brain & soul .
In childhood he never could not think that he will be a hero of opera . But Durjay attendance was inevitable like the other ten people in the news of opera theater presentation . What is the demand in life ? Nobody cannot understand . By the crowd of the diversity every turning of the life do inspired to overcome the next crossing.
Life go away , but never go back . Availability , unavailability ; appease & the discontent ; everything is become mysterious for the life ; to provides provisions of worth living . Somehow what is the life without eating , Sleeping and purge . Sometimes the body do searched another body naked from the beautiful dress like a coffin for enjoyment . On the bodies pieces of meat do lick & we is melt down instantly .The food is never selected in appetite . At the end soul can understand that what we have eaten .The unfulfilled makes feeling more amuse . we will be stay only for the Soul strain.The rule of the Soul is dress of the naked heart . This is like conscience character of opera drama . However; it is not to be seen . But can still realise attendance .
Slip of heart is not all thing of life . In life slip is smaller than skip .Durjay says with the last sip of tea ;
– Your,s Abba ( father ) taken care of every lack with respect from coming the village .
The girl laughed loud .
