This is a humble attempt to bring you close to a Young boy who was charming, friendly, helpful and very athletic, right from his childhood.
Had he got an appropriate platform, our dear friend Babi Bhutia would have surely made it to the National teams - either Football or Athletics.
The cruel scourge of Covid-19 consumed Babi on May 20, 2021. He was working at the Saint Lawrence School's office, the same school where we had spent 10 beautiful years with Babi.
He hails from a small village, Pingua, in Angul district of Odisha. He has a son who still waits for his Best Friend (Dad) to return. He has a wife who is unable to comprehend how to raise their son.
His aging parents are inconsolable. Born and raised in a not-so-privileged family, in a small village, Babi was witness to poverty from very close quarters.
Today, we friends - Batch of 2000, Saint Lawrence School, Tentoloi, Angul - have an earnest plea to all who are reading this.
Please contribute for Babi's family. His demise was very untimely and unexpected. There are days, months, and years, staring at the four, who were dependent on Babi.
Your generous donation will enable us to build a fund for Babi Bhutia's family's daily expenses and the education of his Son.
We remain with hope...
