We knew we will take home blessings when they said “Abar esho” ( Visit us again ) with tear drops here and there , glimmering eyes and million dollar smiles.
The ‘Little Sister of Poor’ old age home situated at AJC Bose road near Rabindra Sadan was where we celebrated our 1st birth anniversary.
“We grow a year older” spoke the child within us while introducing.
To which a lady in pink pointed ,”All of you grow a year older?”
The hall echoed with giggles and sang us a happy birthday SAVERA.
Conversations had us going when a few members took the stage for a beautiful medley until they were flooded with song requests .
“Tell her to sing Gori tera gaon” , someone said .
“Why don’t you dance?” ,
We sang, we danced , we laughed , we ate and we shared hearty conversations.
They miss people.
They miss such moments.
And we happen to miss them too , so much that we are still there in the midst of emotional connections and abundant blessings.
P.S. SAVERA grew a year older on 1st June, 2016.
Growing a year older and stronger could not have been celebrated better.
Thank you for the support and love 🙂
