ISHRAT CHOWDHURY ❏ Cold
From the lake
Touches on bare skin
Soothing effect on my heart
The message that winter is coming
The leaves are becoming pale and brown
About to fall on the ground from trees
Murmuring sound when feet will kiss the fallen leaves
It is time to say good bye to humid summer.
ISHRAT CHOWDHURY ❏ Kariya Park. It is the heart of Mississauga. It is situated at the south of Square One shopping Mall. The park features Japanese style gardens, pavilion, magnolia, cherry trees, rhododendrons, hydrangea, daffodils, tulips and several sculptures gifted to us By Kariya City in 2001. The Japanese garden “delights the senses and challenges the soul” as well as creates a sense of balance and aesthetics. It was officially opened in 1992 on the eleventh anniversary of our twin relationship with Kariya City. It was started after World War 2 in 1960. The idea was to connect cities over the World to reduce the conflicts and coldness among them. It was to create awareness among the citizens.
ISHRAT CHOWDHURY ❏ Anushka was very fond of visiting every museum in the world whenever she found an opportunity. She was from an affluent family so she did not have to worry about spending money. She visited the Louvre Museum before a couple of times, Bata Museum in Canada, Topkapi Palace in Istanbul, Guernica, Prado and other museums in Spain, London, America, Italy and Egypt with her parents. After she did her Master’s Degree in Fine Arts, she wanted to visit them alone, having plenty of time on her hands.
