Went to visit mother’s hometown after 5 years, .. a trip before that was like 13 years ago 🙂
Amazing beautiful place, which my eyes failed to see five years ago.. they were probably thinking of a human attachment I had here in Hyderabad back then.
Without it now, I learned to admire the beauty of a place I visit by not keeping my heart busy thinking of something else.
Also, met up with Dr. Shishir Kumar Biswas(a Visually challenged, down-to-earth person who runs NGO named ‘Pragati’).
He is a Phd, Head of the Department, Bengali – Haringhata Maha Vidyalaya.
Lost this eyesight to a failed operation and had to switch from Science background to “Language and Literature”
He and his students run the NGO.
I have felt utmost respect for him and his wife who chose to marry him for the good human he is (and not for his money/social-status/what he can or will do for her family or whether her family liked him or not).
She is his strongest support and also equally down to earth.
I feel lucky to meet such people and will not hesitate to join my hands and bow my head to such women – a rare few that exists.
And supposedly she recognizes me from 13 years ago when I was like 12 may be.. I don’t have it registered in my memory 🙂
