Paikgacha, Khulna Dear Mousomi,
A few days ago, I made a journey by boat from Paikgacha to Sagardari. There were some reasons behind this journey. Our school was closed on the occasion of an autumn vacation. So, I had much free time then. The journey did not hamper my study. Again, this was my first river journey. I have heard much about the river Kapatakshma. The river has found a place in our Bengali literature. Our great poet Michael Madhusudan Dutta has written a sonnet about this river. Since I am a student. I have read the poem. Since then I fostered a desire to make a journey on this river. Moreover, from my childhood, I had a desire to go to Sagardari and see the house of our great poet Michael Madhusudan Dutta. This river journey fulfilled my desire. The journey also offered me ample opportunity to enjoy the beautiful natural scenery on either side of the river.
