It's 1st March Again!!!

exactly 2 years ago,Dad died in a road accident.and since then, we have become emotionally wretched. I won't forget that day. Getting a call from a friend at college to know that My sis had called her and asked me to go home immidiately coz mom is not well. I called sis back. she said, even she didn't know the details but she also got a call from home and so she is returning from office.
i went home by a metro.and i won't forget the scene i saw. my sis, my grand mom and some other relatives were sitting helpselessly at the stairs. my sis saw me and said,"Mom is alright!!Dad had an accident and he is no more!!"

I was dumbstrucked. but man, my sis is a brave girl. she confirmed the news by calling her office(a tv channel). informed all the relatives. went to the police station to do all the formalities. and I won't ever forget how she copped up with those days...
abyways, 2 years have passed!!!which means 731 days. but still ....

Presidencian Memory

This is my fourth summer in the Presidency College, Kolkata. and once again i'm being mesmerised by the charm of the Presi campus!!!! the walks by the Accacia lined way between the fields of our college and Hare School(which, luckily is my school!!), spending time in the cool of Arts and Science libraries while the whole campus is suffering from a blow of hot air, having lemonade from the man who sits outside the main gate, coming to college for doing library works in the month of may before the exam.......I'm going to experience these again!!!!!!and it's heaven!!!

spending time in the canteen=rejuvenation

chatting endlessly at the quadrangle=identifying urself with the Presidencian culture

whispering sweet nothings in the lover's lane= lover's paradise

encountering with the sky from the terrace of Baker's laboratory buliding=Awesome

going to Coffee House for AN 'adda' andvisiting the bookshops= this is life

liking a book and realizing you can't afford it=I want to earn!!!

conclusion:there are some things that money can buy. for everything else...

The Kolkata Boimela 2006

Finally I'm writing this post about kolkata boimela, i.e.;bookfair. And I don't think I'm too late to write it as only 6 days have gone after the last day of this year's bookfair.

like great bong, I also opine that the kolkata bookfair is not only about books. it is about people, its about foods, its about singing in the field, its about little magazines and its about so many things. though i want to write a long post on it, i' cutting it short and posting some pics of this year's bookfair. (otherwise, my little sis, who's waiting for me to get off the computer so that she can use it, would kill me)

I've been always declaring candlemaking as one of my hobbies. So I thought it'd not be a bad idea to post the picture of some of the candles I made. But as the pictures were taken with a camera mobile, the picture quality is not very good. However, I'm sharing a few of my creations with you.
