Akshya Mishra (b. 1.1.1944 ) father of Anand USA, came to meet me yesterday.
His father died when he was only 3 months, lone brother three sisters.
He passed BTECh from REC, Durgapur . His mother wished he remain near and so afterwards he even taught one month at Nathnaghar school.
He took a yeoman work to empoer all his relations with education. His sister was the principal of the Teachers’ Training college at Forbesganj, my home town whose son Praksh is married to my mother’s sister’s daughter, Rekha.
Some years back Prakash had sustained a severe spinal injury but due to sheer determination he is now almost independent for the activities of daily life.
Mishrajee has recently lost his elder son in an operation. His younger son Anand who was working at he MECON was once my patient when I was not knowing the relation(he was telling would go to Bokaro to relatives- later I understood he would go to Praksh and Rekha.
Mishrajee ‘s house at Allahabad had produced 11 engineers from his relatives.
This is to be learnt from him.
And also that the found time to meet me after a long time(his phone number was changed when he was in US for long).
We should try to inculcate the habit of meeting people and empowering our relations and even non-relations which is matter of bygone era.
