We continue with our column "Shuddh Shakahari Desi" by our diva Ananya Mukherjee. This episode "Maktub" is a very special tribute to the real heroes of India and their families and friends.

As Ananya says : "My column Shuddh Shakahari Desi reveals a true story, inspired by a very personal experience though the protagonist here is not me but someone very dear to my life. Being from the Forces, there are bits and pieces of this anecdote that are solely my own experiences and emotions, and the rest I could connect as moments where it could have been so easily me. I have been through one war and another war like situation and I know exactly what it means, how it feels when you are torn between your selfish protective love for your loved ones and the call of duty.
My special tribute to my pips and olives, and the OG blood that runs in our veins, my friends and family and dear ones in the Indian Army, IAF and the Indian Navy."

Jai Hind!

"It was late evening in November. I was about to curl up on the sofa with my little Beagle as usual and watch the day’s recordings of my favorite TV serials, when the doorbell rang. “Seems like one of your friends!” my husband called from the study, which faced the driveway. It was rather late for an unexpected visitor"...

"My early memories of the school are the memories of my petty delinquencies. There were days when I had loved skipping the morning prayer because the discipline and repetition of the same songs, the same gestures of silence, of submission irritated my playful soul."...writes Lopa Banerjee as she remembers her early days in school.

 Enjoy Lopa's write up "The Story of an Old School" and tell us if you can relate to it...:-)
