Metamorphosis


I am damn busy these days, so could not write a single word in my blog. As I have joined a secondary school I could not manage time to wander on my thoughts on dental story. Teaching requires a lot of homework besides punctuality, patience, and so on.

My second canine has also come down, now only alignment is left.


More than 3 dentists in Delhi suggested me not to undergo any treatment saying that I might lose four teeth. It becomes possible for my dentist Dr Puneet Batra only who puts strenuous efforts on it. I had passed painful moments while he applied methods to pull down my left canine. I was busy in my new job, so I got little time to think on it.

Visiting a dentist is a nuisance to some people who do not know ABC of dental health. As I live at a small town, I faced so many questions.

It is quite strenuous to travel Delhi frequently for the lower middle class people like me. Even as North east is a remote region of the country there are so many hurdles to get the train ticket. When the airfare is low I visit by air, otherwise by train.

Fragmented Memoirz

Ma, Take me back to your nest.

Few Days back I wrote a poem, “Ma, sing a lullaby to me, take me back to your nest.” ( We, Assamese call mother Ma and father Deuta. My mothers’ house is near a rail station where a few Bengali families live. It is disintegrated now. She hails from a middle class family, and my father hails from a lower middle class family. The Bengali families had a good relation with our mother’s family, even they did visit our house, and they liked our mother very much. Bela Mama is good friend to us. May be due to their influence we said our father (he is no more) Baba. Our friends did tease us, why being an Assamese we say Baba instead of Deuta. My parents lived in Mumbai for 13 years. Our eldest sister was born in Mumbai, she first says Baba and so we all the siblings say Baba. When I ask my mother why you taught us to say Baba, she said you all yourselves naturally say Baba, Baba is Baba, no need to worry.

Baba being served in Indian Navy sailed to several countries of the world. When he said us the stories of seafaring life, we were getting scared.

All our aunts are well educated and in our childhood days we say them, “ardha Bidheshi and ardha asomiya” (half British and half Assamese for their lifestyle)

One of maternal uncles of our father is a renowned freedom fighter, so many of the political doyens of Assam (Bimala Prasad Chalia, former CM of Assam and a Padma Vibhushan awardee) visited our house with him and they hang out here discussing politics. My grandmother was a good chef. She is called as Lakhimi by the locals for her mild nature. When I visited some friends of father in Guwahati, they said that they had very fond memories at our ancestral home and our grandmother cooked chicken choup and lip-smacking dishes for them. (Our old house was broken around 1985 to build an Assam type building by our cousin brother (elder uncle’s son), unless it is broken it may survive another several years). I can hardly remember our old British bungalow style house. (Half brick walls, wood crafted, half bamboo wall, thatched roof)

At a lonely moment I feel I am not doing what I like from my heart, I am just wandering here and there…I want to get marry soon and feed a babe. My closest buddy Sangi (we name ourselves as Lucky and Pozzo, the two characters of Waiting for Godot, not to mean the symbolism of the characters, but to mean only about our wandering life of the University days) says, “Please come back and live in your own style. Don’t let Delhi to wash away your finer sensibility”.

The First Lady of Assamese Cinema



Aideo Handique play the role of Ahom princess Joymati in the first Assamese film “Joymati’’ (1935) directed by Rupkonwar Jyotiprasad Agarwalla. She was ostracized by the villagers as she addressed her hero as Bongohordeo or ‘dear husband’. She remained a spinster all her life and she leads a lonely life till her death.

Laxmi Talkies reopened


Assamese film industry has been in a dying stage due to the upsurge of digital revolution which has posed a threat to the traditional cinema halls. It has a negative impact on the Assamese film industry which is striving hard to survive.


Now it is a good news to all. When I visited home last month, I have seen the signboards of “My Name is Khan’’ on the wall of the Laxmi Cinema Hall, Sivasagar. It has been reopened on the festival of Shivaratri. Laxmi Talkies is renovated, it comes up with digital technology. Indeed it is a good news for all Assamese. The small cities and towns have more audience of Assamese cinema than the urban areas. The cinegoers can now enjoy a movie after a long break.

My dental story-part III

I had my baby teeth till my 28 age

At the age of 28, my two baby teeth have fallen, not naturally my dentist Dr Punnet Batra removed it.

One might ask me why I am writing my dental story or I am giving so much importance to publish it in a blog. Someone from Mumbai called me that he was so impressed reading my dental story and wanted to know more on it. Even my closest friends want to read it in my blog.

I wore the braces on 28th January. It was not painful at all. But before the braces some plastic spacers are put in between the teeth to create the space. It was a little bit allergic and painful to eat anything while I bite the foods I bite the spacer. I googled the dental stories before my dental appointment and compare each stories and experiences with mine. When I read on the stories of dental braces, most of them said that a brace wearing is painful and it takes more than one and half an hour. My dentist, Dr Puneet Batra takes hardly 30 minutes to put the braces on my teeth. I did not feel pain at all.

After wearing the braces, I first visited a pharmacy to buy some prescribed things. The pharmacist, a young guy asks me several times what I want. May be due to pronunciation problem he could not understand me. But I am sure that he smiled in a typical way to joke for my teeth. After my dental braces I met hundreds of people and everyone put a question on it, why I am wearing it so lately, why I select the green color plastic instead of white one, if I am wearing it for beauty only and so on. I have visited home and everyone asked me if I need to pull it out while brushing the teeth, some suggest me I should not meet my boyfriend or someone special with this braces, etc. I answered with a humorous tone to most of them and sometimes I got angry. Later I did avoid these questions.

Girls love to eat chestnuts and sanasur. When I was visiting in the train I have sacrificed these snacks. Still I tried to eat Sana. When you are asked not to eat something you will be more obsessive to eat it. Due to my dental braces I have to avoid so many good dishes.

I hated always the huge gap of my front teeth. The gap is slowly becomes closer and the teeth of the makhana (male elephant) seems to be changing to a good one. One of My nephews, an 8th class student only used to say me always that my teeth are moving and the gaps become smaller. He even says that I look different day by day due to the braces. He feels pain for me that I couldn’t smile in a big style and I could not be a newsreader for my gap-teeth. When he knows about my surgical exposure of canines, he called me to ask if everything was well with my teeth.



Surgical Exposure of Canines


Truly I am sacred for this part. I always visit the clinic after my office or in the morning time. It doesn’t create problem to my work. I feel pain to be alone at the time of surgery. I have seen one of my friends when she had her dental implants. And her dentist did not allow her to express her pain. She says her sadist. I took my sister with me as at the painful moment near ones always give courage and patience.

I had my surgery on March 13, 2010. It was painful a lot; I should say it is unbearable. Dr Puneet Batra said all the times in a positive way to give me courage and to divert my mind to other things. I have full faith in his competency and so I wasn’t scared about any misfortune. After surgery he said that the canines are in unusual positions and guided how I need to take care for healing. I took complete rest till next day of the surgery and I join office after one day.

The gap after the removal of baby canines seems pretty horrible!!! I hope my canines will come down. It will take time. But I don’t know how much months or years I have to wait…

How does your site win the Race in Google?

Everyone expects that their site should get the position in the first top ten lists of Goggle. High raking of a site in Google, the King of Webs seems not quite easy as there are billions of sites. Then how you will defeat your competitors in the race? Your site will catch the eye of the search engine Google as well as other search engines when it is an optimized site. The search engine optimizer does the optimization of a site using various tactics of seo. Search Engine Optimization is a complex term and it is very dynamic. We can say that seo is both a game of fun and pain.

Some people don’t believe in seo, some sites gets traffic of visitors without optimization. There is a reason behind this. If your site has keyword rich content then it does wonder without on-site optimization. So, undoubtedly seo friendly content or keyword rich content is one of the secrets behind success of your business. If you have keyword rich quality content in your site then it draws the eyes of the search engines. (But if there is too much competition on the same subject on-site optimization is necessary.)

What is keyword friendly content? The Keywords are words or phrases that are used by the net surfers while searching something in Google or other search engines. The content which has proper density or use of keywords gets more eyes of the search engines. E.g. you run a small online business on weight loss products. Then the content of your site should have this key phrase, the content writer should use other synonymous keywords like weight loss products in India, weight loss products sales, how to loss weight, etc. Moreover, updating of contents at a regular basis gives boost to traffic of a site. The selection of title of the content, and Meta tags also do matter.

Blogging and regular comment on other blogs also drive attention to your site. You can leave the link of your site when you visit a blog of other blogger. The continuous process of blogging and commenting do a great help in generating traffic to a site. Blog with relevant contents also gets the eye of the search engine.

There are lots of seo techniques for driving traffic to a site and these can be used by a competent seo professional. Some of the seo tactics are onsite optimization using proper title, meta tags; link exchange, press release submission, open directory submission, video submission, social book marking, social networking, article submission in the article directories among others.

(I have worked in more than 3 companies till now and but after joining in Divino Indian Memoirz Tours I have met Rohit, an seo buff who like to play games with Google, he is dedicated to play the game of seo approximatley14 hours in a day. He is only conscious about his sites ranking and how he can use innovative seo tactics to win the race in Google. Slowly I have also developed a habit of learning seo as it is essential to be an expert seo content writer. Basically I am a blogger and an seo content writer. )
