THE MIRACLE RainyTabir It’s a rainy day.The sun seems to be playing hide and seek throuhghout the day.The antique clock hanging on the wall beside the bed ticking incessantly as it’s been playing to catch the same pace as of the rain. Rythmic waterdrops creating an innate tune that is hard to ignore from the soul. It’s been cats and dogs the whoe day.The whole sky seems to be falling down. Professor Ahmed Reza is a renowned scholar of the Department of Clinical Psychology in the University of Dhaka.In addition to that,he is a loved figure among the students of all the departments. Some doctrines about the hidden existence of the soul of human being gave him reputation. His routines are very cliche and monotonus. Rise and shine,have a shower,a superficial reading on the daily news along with a sip on the coffee mug,taking the laptop and accessories that are required then headbound to the office. Today wasn’t an exception.But about getting back to home it was quite late that day.He had an urgent meeting with the vice chancellor this evening.That took him about two and a half hour to touch the finish line of some boring time. Professor Reza is standing with a small umbrella holding upright over his head. Looking for a taxi at shahbag.It was 10 pm at night still there is no sign of any vehicles late alone taxi probably that is beacause of rain,professor thought.Professor is waiting impatiently.The rain was accompanied by heavy wind what was cumbersome for him to hold the umbrella firmly.That’s why it was swinging leaving the grip imbalanced and that made the professor more exasperated. Inspite of having an umbrella,he is half soaked due to the heavy wind that was blowing with a fizzy sound.Being full with despair,professor started to walk though home wasn’t in a proximity that can be easily reached on the top of that it was such a hazardous night. In a jiffy,a harsh screeching of the tyers propelled his eyes backward. Yes, it’s a taxi.He was much surprised.A man popped his head out of the windows.Probably he is the cab driver. It was pitch black but giving thanks to the lightning, professor tried to have a clear view of the man.He’s got a pair of eyes that is so commanding and difficult to ignore.He told him to get in the cab.Without questioning professor got on the cab. Breaking the wall of silence a few minutes later,the cab man asked him a question that was totally unexpected and surprising at the same time.He asked if professor believes in the duality of our existence?? Professor,tries to see the face of the man.It was blurry but it seemed he’s got confidence in asking questions.Profound and unfazed pair of eyes that is hard not to ignore. A firm,confident,unfazed low but determined voice asked again.... Professor! Do you believe in the dual existence? Professor was confounded hearing such a thoughful question from a cab driver.Does the man know him?He asked himself, if not, then how did he asked a question mentioning him as professor? A question which pertains to his research,professor found no logical solution. But he tried to reply showing no awe.It is my research topic presently but still haven’t managed to appear with something that make sense. The cab man gave him a mystic look and smiled. Within a fraction of a second,professor discovered that despite heavy wind and rain it is pindrop silence in here.This feeling teemed himself with a weird tension that he didn’t feel before. He tried to convince himself that it’s all right with it.It’s not a problem at all then why he is thinking over it?Still there is something which causing him to stick with the pensive mood.Hell knows,he said to himself. Again the harsh screeching of the tyers on the wet road made him nervous.Why this man doesn’t stop smoothly just like everyone else does?Why he has to step on the break each time he stops?He didn’t get an answer.The cab man told him that they reached the destination. Professor got down the cab with a obessession of what happened today.There is actually nothing which can be deemed as paranormal.Still he’s been thinking about that man for no hell reason.This weird experience left him with awe,it didn’t happen ever before! Breaking the stairs,he is thinking hell and heaven. Who could be the man?Why did he appear so dramatically while there were no other vehicles on the street?Then the weird big question......! Having finshed the dinner professor slid underneath a blanket on his bed.It wasn’t winter but he felt a little cool.After a while he discovers that the guy didn’t even take fare! Thinking and thinking....at last he had to succumb to sleep...... He was dreaming.... A heavenly light came into his room through the door and he saw bright milkwhite light obssessing the whole room.He saw a man is standing in a great illuminated circle which is sorrounded by infinite black and that man summoning him to go inside it.Then in dream he fell asleep. Professor got up the bed with a stir ....yes! It’s the door bell.Who it could be in such a night? The door bell remained ringing.... Professor unwillingly and shiveringly slam the door open.My God it’s the cab man!! The guy with the same mystic smile that is lingered since professor met him. The man said,it’s very windy and stormy out there and i couldn’t go home.Being helpless, i had to return to you.It was a great awe that how the hell that man found that professor live in this apartment but for some paranormal reason this thought didn’t touch the professor. Later on,he offered him some cookies.He couldn’t offer him dinner cause the freezer was empty and the professor doesn’t cook.He’s got a maid for that particulat job. They had some coversation which was leading professor into a realm of surrealism which human could only imagine! They talked about surrealism,dual existence of soul,the great oneness!Though professor later found out it didn’t make any sense to have such thoughtful conversation with a guy who is not even known to him. At a time he showed the man the cubicle and they both went to deep sleep.A sleep that is greatly awakening. The professor woke up with a clinky alarm.He sit up and yawn on the bed.Sunbeam coming through the window staright onto his face.He watches the clock it’s 6:00 am in the morning. So,it was all a nightmare! Professor releases a sigh of relief! He was about to get up the bed suddenly his eyes flicked beside the bed.There are some empty cookies lying around the tea table. His jaw dropped,eyes popped almost out in awe!!!What in heaven does that? There is something written on one of thosecookies!He read with a machine like voice just as a disabled machine sounds,”It was me who is within you”.
