General comments: On a day in autumn in 2013, while rummaging through the book stalls at Peary Charan Sarkar Street (College Street by lane), I was overjoyed to buy a handful of Alistair Maclean books each at 20 INR. In one of them I was delighted to find this.
Transcription of inscription:
Surajit Biswas.
Class-IX
1989.

Be never too young, never too old
always strong enough
to live and love and inquire
ever loving,
always kind.
May life share its many blessings
with you,
and may its burdens be ever light
The wind at your back,
the sun in your soul,
and our love in your heart
now and forever.
For you and your Daddy,
my heart ever yours,
my love and my life
yours forever.
