General comments:
My mother’s colleagues (Narasinha Dutt College, Howrah) had taken it upon themselves to counter-balance the English-medium education. Much of the credit for what little Bangla I have read goes to them for refusing to give up, even though I read most of the books they gifted after I discovered for myself how cool they are. This was a follow-up of a conversation about Meghnadbadh. Shankha and Shubho are our ‘official’ pet-names.
