You charmed the life of Ms. Anupama Das and Late Durga Dhar Das as the third born on 24th February, 1961 in Shillong, the then capital of undivided Assam. Even though your birth was a cause of immense joy and pleasure to your family, but the entire state was in a political turmoil due to the “Language Movement”. It was worst affected in the state capital of Shillong which broke into ethnic clashes and communal riots. Even the rented house where your family stayed was gutted into fire by the rioters. Your family took shelter in a temporary shed in the State Assembly campus till the law and order situation got better. Being a Police officer your father became engrossed in the law enforcement duty of the town and thereby he could not pay attention to his family which was always his priority. Your mother had a very tough time looking after her small children, including you as a merely one month old baby and that too in a temporary shelter.
