GULJAR Hosaain is on the walk. Sixty-eight-year-old Hossain is walking as his mind is pulled back to the lost land beside the Kaljani river, where he used to produce an adequate amount of rice. A resident of Deocharai in Cooch Behar, Hossain and his neighbours found no support from the administration after their lands were devoured by the river.
Mangal Murmu is on the walk. Murmu, a youth in Shibpur of Bolpur, witnessed how an area, acquired for industry has been given away for real estate. It dashed the hopes of the local people.
