Today is the last day of Jadav Bara’s service life. Today he will retire. Today, thus, he is frequently ringing his loved calling bell. Usually every office has some calling bells. Apart from the officers, the table of Head Clerk or Bara Babu is also graced with calling bell. In some offices even U. D. Clerks use calling bell. If we visit an office generally we can hear cring cring sound of calling bell coming out of the tables of officers and head clerks. The Main Office of District Inspector of Schools of Western Circle is at Dhubri. Jadav Bara
Ask not my country Or state. Ask not my trade Or job. Ask not my tongue Or region. Ask not the colour Of my blood. Ask not what i like Or dislike. Ask not what i dream Or pen. Ask not if i have An orchard or a flower garden. All are irrelevant! Ask what i eat And what i not. Ask what i wear And what i don’t. Ask if i a visitor To holy lands. And if not satisfied Ask the last important one, “What’s your name?”
