Young Generation

 This write up will be incomplete if I do not make a special mention of the young adults from the Calgary community. It was heartwarming to see their co-operation, whole-hearted participation, friendliness, politeness, enthusiasm, warmth and genuine exuberance. They were brilliant!

Everyone who attended the convention will agree that this convention was A Feast. There were plenty of dishes to choose from and all were delicious. On every meal, there were decadent desserts.  Manashi Goswami, the Food Convenor, personally taught a Nepali cook from the catering restaurant how to make 'Masor Tenga'! And it was delicious.

Thanks

...My plane slowly left the ground. As I left behind beautiful Calgary, some smiling, friendly faces from the host committee raced through my mind one by one. For two short days, I felt, I was one of them... and that was a good feeling!
 
A few lines from one of my favorite poems kept coming to my mind...
 
"The tide recedes, but leaves behind bright seashells on the sand.
The sun goes down, but gentle warmth still lingers in the land,
The music stops, and yet it echoes on the sweet refrains...
For every joy that passes, something beautiful remains."
                                                                       - 'Lingering Joys' -

  
I have a feeling those who attended the convention will agree that the beautiful memory of Assam Convention 2012 in Calgary will linger in our minds for a long, long time.
