He was eagerly waiting for a vacation: Soumitra's daughter recalls

Baba was quite upset because of the countywide lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

He could not accept the situation, and resumed working as soon as the lockdown was relaxed. Even though we raised objections, he did not listen to us.

He was eagerly waiting for a vacation. He wanted to spend some time in nature, for which he had even spoken to Harram Kaku, his friend, who owns a tea garden at Dooars, North Bengal.

However, his last wish remains unfulfilled!

When admitted to the hospital, Baba told me to keep a pen, paper and his spectacles beside his bed.

He told me that he will get bored staying there, so he might need them. Sadly, he was unable to write even a single word.

I did not just lose my father, but the dearest friend and the most trustworthy comrade!

Baba has taught me to enjoy every bit of life. He would always tell me to never get upset from life, and focus on making our lives meaningful. He would always inspire us to do something for the world. He lived his life to the fullest, and was rarely ever depressed.

We have plans to preserve his memories. We wish to work on that with time and show our gratitude to the people who have showered their unconditional love for Baba.
