Mrs. Borgohain and What My Parents Didn’t Teach Me

Deuta (as we address our father) never discusses about his office at home, not much even with Maa (our mother). As far as I can remember, for me and my sister, his workplace had always been a ‘cool’ hangout place for us with ever smiling Uncles-Aunties-Dadas-Baideos. Many a time, post-school, I used to spend time… Continue reading Mrs. Borgohain and What My Parents Didn’t Teach Me

A cup of tea with this majestic view from the balcony. Another reason in the long list asking me not to return back to the monotonous work life away from home. Oh how I pray life was what we wished for…Home, Our Assam 🙂
