Suvo Naboborsho.

Today is the first day of Bengali New year. Its known as Poila Boishak. Today the Bengali calender changed to 1411. I wish all you you a very happy new year.

After comming back from Hyderabad, I was at home most of the days. And have spend my time studying movies. For past few days a company in West Kolkata kept on calling me, asking to come for an interview. So, after a few calls, I decided to visit them. The journey took 1 and a half hour from my residence. Anyway, after reaching there, I submitted my Resume, to the concerned person, and was asked to wait. After waiting for some time, their "technical head" called me and gave me a qestion paper. This move was very strange. I asked him, "I would like to know what post you are offering ?" . Preety confused, I called his boss. I asked the same question to this person also. Hopefully he had the answer. They were looking for Animators. I informed him, that my resume clearly says, I am a Production Manager, and not an animator. And added, that I hope he understood what a production manager means. On which he nodded. Upon further discussion, I realized that he had no basic knowledge of animation production. At the end I gave him a thorough lecture on animation, and left the place.

Shocking news

From the trip we reached home at 9:30 pm. We were daam tired, after the fun we had. So, had our dinner and retired early to bed. At around 1:20 am in the morning, the phone rang. We got the news of Anno dida's death. Barely 5 hrs back she was with us on the boat, enjoying with us. It was a huge shock to our family. We never thought of such a news after the party. Me and dad went to the nursing home at that hour, and passed on the news to all the members of the family.
Her cremation was done at Kaoratola Burning ghat at 11:00 am in the morning. I came back at 1:00 pm after everything was over.
