Our mother Smt. Jayashree Das Gupta passed on April 27th 2015 at the Command Hospital, Kolkata. We live abroad and even though we visited her frequently there were times that she was in the hospital when none of us were there. At those times we would contact the attending doctors long distance. The doctors Col Trivedi, Col Nanda, Col Kiran Rao were extremely sympathetic and would update us patiently with her condition. We were relieved to know that unlike the civilian hospitals her condition was correctly diagnosed and the correct care procedures were outlined and followed. Our departed AMC father's legacy carries on still at CH. During our state of grief we are grateful to have received the help and support from the chief ward master Sub/Maj M. P. Singh. He arranged the hearse and expedited the paper work even though there was a Bangla Bandh in effect so that we could perform the last cremation rites with dignity and offer our mother the respects she deserved on her last journey.

Dear sir I have the following few lines for your kind consideration. Sir, it makes you feel odd when you see a patient (obviously, parents of serving personnel/retired personnel) can not speak in Hindi when he comes for treatment. It makes doctors angry, but you will have sympathy when you will come to know the actual condition of West Bengal. Sir, Hindi is not taught in schools of West Bengal Board of Secondary Education which covers 90% of students in West Bengal and also in different colleges. Hindi is not taught in any class under WBBSE board. Students become graduate, Honors Graduate, Post Graduate, B. Ed by writing answers in Bengali and you may be astonished that teachers, lecturers, professors, West Bengal state government officers and staffs, clerical staffs, Librarian and many more babus cannot read, write and speak in Hindi. In this circumstances, do we expect that a poor old parents of a personnel will speak in Hindi. If the present scenario.
