Other Forms of Life Appear in the Eyes of Youth
'Translation' , this word in English primarily refers to the version of a different language. In Bengali we call it “Anubad”.It is a transformation from one language into another language. But there is a larger meaning of this too. Changing anything from one form to another form could also be considered as a kind of “anubad” or translation. In this sense, if we look around our lives, this transformation process continues in much of the activities of the nature. Ice transformed into water,water transfromed to the steam, Idea converted into writing, words, images, music etc. And all of these could be bracketed in the process of transformation. This has a big role in the social and cultural exchanges. One civilization adopts or assimilates another by transforming it according to one’s own values. Depending on this process of translation, unity in diversity is achieved worldwide.
