Our beloved grandmother Nilima Bhattacharya (Lily), a resident of Kanchal, breathed her last at Guwahati Medical College Hospital on March 12, 2015 after a brief illness at the age of 78 years. She left behind her husband, three daughters and sons in law, two sons and daughters in law, grand children and a host of relatives. Born as the third child to Late Sishupran bin Sarma and Late Dhada Devi of Uzanbazar in Guwahati, she was married to Shri Tarath Bhattacharyya.
A pious lady, Aaita was loved and respected by all for her amiable ture and helpfulness outlook. An ardent follower of the cardil principle of simple living and high thinking, she was humble, kind hearted and lighted up many hearts not only in her family but also in the locality. It is due to her constant care, untiring efforts and guidance in all spheres which has made all her children well placed in their respective professions.
A true home maker, her knitting and embroidery skills in making garments and toys mesmerized us in our childhood, and we were fortute enough that to have relished her specially cooked dishes. She was an avid reader of books and often rrated Sadhu Kotha till recently which we found very absorbing. Apart from taking care of her near and dear ones, she maged to win hearts of all people those who came across her with all her generosity, lovable manner and helping attitude and she had a special soft corner for the needy ones. She took keen interest in all the social activities in Kanchal area and was actively associated with bagraha Kali Mandir, Silpukhuri till her indisposition about a few months back. A simple soul as she was, although she is no more with us today, her cheerful countence and sense of humour would ever remain present in our mind to remind us of our dear Aaita.
Today, on the day of her Addyasraddha with tearful eyes we remember her with fondness and pray to the Almighty for the eterl peace of the departed soul.
