Meet Mrs. Sanghamitra Dasgupta

Meet our beloved senior Mrs. Sanghamitra Dasgupta. Retired as a high school English teacher, she is an avid reader and loves to explore new things. She is a strong pillar for her family, always positive and vibrant, and leads by example. Having been settled in India throughout her life, she recently moved to Sydney with her family. She now looks forward to her life in the new place and to create good memories.

In her own words…..

I am Sanghamitra Dasgupta, 67 years old, enjoying the second innings of my life with my loved ones in a foreign land, far away from where I was born. I believe during the sojourn of life a person crosses many stations. Some are bustling with people and some are quiet. I have crossed those stations which were buoyant with vibrancy, admired that time spent with friends, music, playing pranks and all that went with that age. Now I have reached those stations which are quiet. Age has made me physically slow and quieter, but, couldn’t affect me mentally. I am still young at heart with a positive attitude towards life. Though I have my physical limitations due to dreaded cancer, detected four and half years ago, that still couldn’t rob me of my dream to lead a normal life as against being imprisoned in the mental state of constant agony and fear. My strong faith in the Almighty and the love of my family members, probably makes me go on.

At this age, being termed either as an elderly member or a senior citizen, I take that in a positive stride and appreciate my grey hair, a few wrinkles here and there on my face without any regret but with full respect to nature’s diktat. But one should always be young at heart and that is the mantra that keeps me going through all odds.

With every sunrise, there is a sunset too. Life is just like that, so I feel, appreciating the good things that we get is far better and beneficial than lamenting over what we couldn’t get. I am basking in the warmth of ‘granny hood’ at present and want it to continue forever with the benevolent lord’s blessing.
