get a sudden sense of alarm. But another day I used to wait for hearing such a sound. And now there is a different situation. Ah! Why I did forget to silent the mobile phone? I was not prepared for this as my elder sister told about the matter in such a way. We had our dinner just now. My sister told at a stretch ,”Jannat no need to sleep by keeping the mobile phone beside you today. I came to know yesterday by reading newspaper that cancer may attack if mobile phone is kept beside someone. So keep the mobile at the dining room before going bed.”
I wanted to say something to my sister but did not give me any chance and she said,” Many tips are given in the newspaper about cancer. M y brother-in-law who sat beside us said,”I need to know the matter. The other day a writer was died by cancer.”
My mobile phone is still kept on the dining table. My sister heard talking over mobile phone and for this why she has imposed this’ treatment’ on mobile phone. I do not usually talk over mobile at night. It might be wrong to use the word ‘usually’ as I could say the number of days talking over mobile phone. And after returning from the campus I hardly talk with her over mobile phone. What so far I communicated with her only through the text messages of my mobile phone. But Habib did not reply the text last night. So being compelled and also a little bit angry with him I made him a phone call.
Now it is midnight and the tone of the mobile phone again rang up. I felt worst for Habib.He will be sending message until I reply. What happened? Whether I am angry with him or not and why I do not reply the message and so on to be written by him. I could enjoy this banglish (Neither Bengali nor English) text message if it would happened another day. If I could take the phone set once again in my hand I would have get pleasure. If I could let him know the problem in any way but they are yet to sleep.
All on a sudden I woke up by hearing the sound of ring tone. When I took the mobile phone in my hand I saw Nitu made me a phone call. I could not remember when I slept. Perhaps my sister kept the mobile phone beside me and when I received the phone call Nitu said from the other side,” Habib Bhai did not get you over the mobile phone the whole night, was it? What happened? As soon as I told the incident of the night to Nitu my sister came and said I told you earlier about the gentleman who is a doctor by profession will come this evening along with their other family members with a view to talk about the marriage. Father told us to finalize the talk regarding all about this. As soon as I finished the talk I saw the next message in box of the mobile which have been read by someone.
