It used to be Dida's birthday on 22nd September. I was so occupied with work I didn't realise what date it was. I will make payesh (kheer/rice pudding) tomorrow. That's the Bengali equivalent of a Birthday Cake, and Dida always made it on each of us grandkids' birthdays, whether we were with her or not. Hard to match that elegance. Look at her, she's slaying it. Kuntola Bannerjee, granddaughter of Dr. Bannerjee, the Civil Surgeon of Banaras, and daughter of Dr. Bannerjee, the Civil Surgeon of Kurwar State. This is her before she became Mrs. Kuntola Chatterjee. Kunti. Sejo-bou. Sej-di. Maa. Dida.
