Mother dear, 2 contd.

Small cameoes,as gathered from reminescences , remain etched in mind.When Ma was in class four, one of her classmates,Dulu Rani got  married. Ma was driven  in a Whippet car by her father to  the wedding and her gift was an embroidery kit in a blue velvet box. It was this same Dulu Rani who wiped off blood from my mother’s head when she was throwing stones and hurt herself..  Ma joined Bangla Bazar school and later  Kamurennesa school .Another cameo which is my favourite is of Ma as a small girl in a slip bowing in front of an ustad  who would come to give lessons to one of her uncles and saying ‘Ustadji, adab. adab’.
