An Extended Family Aizawl in Mizoram - Memoirs from AK Goel
I would like to share a nice and touching experience about the AIR Family.
Next morning she was dropped back to Kolkatta Airport. She had some time for her flight. Suddenly she realised that she was left with very little money as she was carrying 20 Kgs of rice and some of her books and her personal baggage, as after submission of her thesis she had to vacate the hostel, so she was entitled to 25 Kgs of luggage and she was carrying more than 50 Kgs, so after paying for the excess baggage she didnt have much money, and there was very little balance in her mobile phone. So whatever balance she had, she told me to get her mobile recharged. I opened my phone book and went through it. I came across Shiela Namchu Bhutia's name who was my batch mate of1988. The last I knew about her was that she was in Gangtok. I called her up. Asked her, her welfare and what she was doing. She said that after her superannuation she had settled in Kolkatta and was doing Duty Officers duty after her retirement. I gave her my daughters number and requested her to recharge my daughters phone who was at Kolkatta Airport and was not having enough balance in her phone just in case she needed to talk in case of emergency. Shiela Namchu Bhutia immediately did it. My daughter then called me up and said yes her phone was recharged. I gave her Shiela's number and my daughter immediately thanked Shiela Aunty. This is extended AIR family. Wasn't it touching and being proud of, of being part of this great organisation.
