Ujantali is a remote village in Bangladesh. A chick born and grown up in a village of Bangladesh was compelled to leave along with her father. But she was carrying the sweet memories of  her village all along. That little girl has now arrived at her old age. Still her memoirs is their in her heart and mind.

 

In reality she may not return to Bangladesh ever. So while returning from her daughter’s house she wants to quench her thirst by viewing her left over Motherland Bangladesh. She still hears her father’s voice of fairy tales. The princess of fairy tales was able to return to her own land. With the help of magic wind she was able to awake the whole deadly serene Palace into a lively one.

 

 Like that princess she also recollects her memoirs of the left over village. Her childhood memory are there still lying in a sleepy mode. She even now wants to get back her childhood life. Presently she wants to mingle her elderly life in her childish frame.
