Ben was an ex-football player and had the stature to go with it. But the last fifteen minutes dancing with the Negro had left her breathless and excited.
All the neighborhood women would stare at him when he mowed the front lawn, those broad shoulders, the narrow waist, the tight butt and those massive thighs, the black skin glistening with his sweat... The four rum and cokes she had drunk did not help; she was definitely feeling a bit tipsy.
Dhriti studies in Class 1, while Lachit is in the second pre-primary section (for 4 children) called Uday.“My daughter asked me quite a few times, especially after returning from school, if we could speak Bengali at home. For a child to switch languages seamlessly sometimes becomes difficult.
However, we convinced her that it is a skill that no one else have and that there would be no one left to speak Sanskrit if we don’t. To minimise the influence of other languages on their kids, the couple even restricts their mixing with children in the neighbourhood.
Only Vidya Bharati-run schools teach Sanskrit from Class 2,” said Pranab, who is also the RSS’s Basirhat organisational district spokesperson.
