Example text

12 All those rooms were occupied by many poor tenants and our household was run with money from their rent. Things were cheap those days and we were a small family—there was my grandmother, my mother, and the two of us, my brother and I. But as we grew up, our poverty and our sorrows grew with us. Then, my grandmother married off my five-year-old brother to a little motherless child who was two and a half years old and who brought with her marriage her mother's ornaments to our house. We lived for a while on the money brought in by the sale of these ornaments.

If someone happened to call on her at two o'clock in the night with news of a crisis at home, she would immediately set off with the person taking with her whatever money she happened to have with her. Whether it was with money or with her person, she tried to help others to the best of her ability. It is hard to come by such a selfless person in these times. She had a little property of her own and no family or anyone else in the world; she was committed to helping others. My brother died in the free hospital that I have mentioned.

He had replied, "I love Binod very much. Besides, I would suffer losses if I let go of her. " I was silent.

Even after we brought you over, Sarat-babu mahashoy took you back a couple of times with our permission. " At any rate, it was from this time that I began working with the respected Girish-babu mahashoy. Beginning from my early youth, the best years of my life were spent under his tutelage.
