Words can never fully express how much someone means to us. But circumstances are compelling me to pen down a few memories of my dear grandmother, whom I never thought would leave me alone so abruptly and so soon.
My beloved grandmother (Aaita), Bina Hazarika passed away on November 5, 2015 at 5:00 am at Marwari Hospital, Athgaon, Guwahati.
Born at Pub-Pahartoli Goalpara town in 1932, she was married to Late Tara Prasad Hazarika, noted freedom fighter at a very early age after completion of schooling from Goalpara.
She was associated with various social and religious activities and also contributed with her valuable creative writings in Assamese literature. She wrote many poems and stories in various Assamese print media. “Goti”, a story written by my grandmother in “PROTIDHONI” , which was edited by Dr. Bhupen Hazarika during 1990 is an unique creation of her.
For me my Aaita was my crowning support. She was a wonderful mother with lots of patience. Aaita was for me a little bit of parent, a little bit of teacher and a little bit of my best friend. Always caring and compassionate she lived life to the fullest have to be her amiable nature she was the one who was loved by one and all. On the occasion of Adya Shraddha on November 17, 2015, I wish that my Aaita will listen my speechless feelings for her:”
Aaita I am thinking of you:
The one who is true
Always there for me
No matter what you see
A friend I count on you
More than you know
Thanks for all u did”.
Destiny has taken her away from our midst forever, but her memories, her deeds will never be erased from our memories. We pray to the almighty today so that her departed soul may rest in eternal peace.
