At the outset.. বাট চ'ৰাতে

Welcome to my world..
I am not a writer nor a poet. Just trying to narrate some of my experiences .. I am usually comfortable in writing in Assamese, my mother tongue. Have written few blogs in English and have tried my hands in composing few poems in Hindi too.. My Hindi speaking friends may excuse me for my audacity to do so..

মোৰ জগতলৈ আদৰিছো...
কোনো কবি সাহিত্যিক মই নহয়, কিছুমান অভিজ্ঞতাৰ বৰ্ণনা মাথোন কৰিছো ইয়াত.. মাতৃভাষা অসমীয়াতে লিখি ভাল পাওঁ যদিও ইংৰাজীতো লিখিছো.. হিন্দী ভাষাতো দুটামান কবিতা লিখিবলৈ চেষ্টা কৰি চাইছো....

"We are the world, We are the children,We are the family"

I was born and brought up in Assam
Did my studies in different places in Assam , Meghalaya, Tamil Nadu and Delhi
After my voluntary retirement as a Professor and Head of the Department of Chemical Engineering from Assam Engineering College, Guwahati, I have worked as Principal/Director of few engineering colleges in Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal and Rajasthan… 

During all these years as a student and a teacher, I have met people/students from different back grounds and have found much commonality amongst all of us.

Facebook has made it possible for us to get connected with people across the globe to share our views. People post inspiring quotes, jokes, personal experiences, socio-political views and much more. 
It has been always an enriching experience for me in the Facebook.

Recently, I posted one of my personal experiences regarding a phone call to my mother emphasizing the importance of keeping in touch with parents through such calls. It was purely personal experience but shared it on the Facebook with my friends. 
Many appreciated it, some were really touched..
One of them shared it with his son who had recently left home for Canada for higher studies. His son called him back... it was a kind of BIRTHDAY GIFT !!  

Another friend called his parents the next morning and shared his feelings openly in the Facebook…

My!! Did I not cry after being touched by such emotional posts as feed back to my post?

To my pleasant surprise, I received a notification in Facebook telling me that someone had shared that post on the telephone call to many of his friends... I personally do not know any of them, not even the person who shared my post…I was speechless!!

All these happenings have been reminding me again and again that we share same emotions, same feelings as fellow human beings. We have same desires, same longings in our hearts. 
We belong to the same big family…
