My Father was a simple school teacher. He was teaching in Sree Bharati M. E. School of Jorhat. But his popularity among his students we could only realised when he died after suffering from Cancer, on this same day 16 years back, i.e in 20th September 1992.We saw that thousands of people took part in his last journey which include many of his students. Now also we come acropss many of Dad's ex-students who even breaks up telling about father's simplicity, dedic ation towards his profession and kindness to his students. This is why i am always looking for a opportunity to observe His death anniversary among his first love, that is, his students.
This year the school authority has given me this opportunity. So, we organised a quiz competition as well as a art contest among the students. In the prize giving ceremony my mother Jharna Purkayastha and father's friend and coligue Mr. Asish Das remembered His contribution towards school and society. They also gave away the prizes to the winners of the competitions. Some sweets are also distributed among the students of the school.
This was a great experiance for our family.
