I can look into his eyes and talk for hours, people might sound this funny but this is true. Some times I cry while talking to him, automatically I am energized with the arrival of this festival. The idea to bring Bappa is not to fulfill my wishes, it's just that I feel happy and eagerly wait for the festival every year."
