...from back cover

(I found this poem scribbled illegibly  on backcover of my old notepad. I wasn't sure if I wrote it. If I said no, it was on my notepad which is always in my drawer. If I said yes, I wouldn't like to be responsible for the handwriting. It would put many people of my time to shame.)

.....it's my love
so it is named  suffering.

...it is your indifference
so you name it  with coldness.

...and again it is my love
so I don't need anything in return.

I forgot the blankness but remember the pain now. Maybe that was the darkest day for me because after that things changed. I am grateful for life.

After having tolerated the swamp for very long time, I thought there are million reasons to ponder upon this case. Mr. Champay joined the service of FCB in March 1975 after completing class IX from Tashigang Central School. On August 31st, 2012, he reached superannuation age of 58 years and completed 37 years of service. As per the FCBL S
