‘Golper Haari’ is the second book by Tufan Mazhar Khan. It was published in 'Omor Ekushey Book Fair 2019' by Priyo Bangla Prokashon. Tufan Mazhar Khan is a poet, story writer, columnist and novelist. He is also a special reporter of an oneline based newspaper. I say, he is a man of literature. He has a novel book 'Onteem Protikkha' which was published in 2018. I have been read that also.
The book 'Golper Haari' is a story book for children and teenagers based on some interesting stories. It also became a best seller children's book published by Priyo Bangla Prokashon in 2019. There are 10 stories in this book and every story tastes are different with one another.
The writer wrote several attention-grabbing stories. He gave the taste with his love. He used different elements in his stories from another conventional story book. These elements of stories are seemingly realistic because for portraying our diurnal lives.
In the first story of the book named 'Sifat O Ekti Horinsabok' he mentioned the realistic one day's story of peoples who lives near Sundarban. The story teaches children a moral lesson of behavior with wildlife. The writer showed a real view of some interesting and teachable moments with two family. His narrative style of stories are different in taste. There he narrated his thought in a story named 'Ifader Borsajapon' he showed the villager's life in the rainy season and also showed is natural beauty of Bangladesh in this time. The writer also wrote a story in the book named 'Jolronge Aaka Bongobondhu' he showed real love to Bongobondhu of new generation's students. He also showed the interest of students to know about Bongobondhu.
Why the name of the book is 'Golper Haari'? Cause of the name, it has a interesting story with the same name. In the story, narrated an old man 'Golpodadu' says new story daily with the children of a village. It has a mystery in this story which isn't possible to narrate with some words. You have to read this book to know about the mystery of this and to enjoy some more interesting stories.
We find some real story of our daily life in this book. Tufan Mazhar Khan narrated all the stories in his 'Golper Haari' skillfully. His thinking behind the plots and artful writing captivated this reviewer. His imageries, similes, metaphors and other literary elements of narrating are enough to draw attention of children or readers. The simplicity of his used language and the delicate word selections will please every reader's heart. Lastly I want to say, this book should be collected by everyone for his brothers, sisters, sons, daughters and also all of children under 18.
