A Tribute and Memoir

With heavy hearts we must keep our Phanida, late Phanindra Nath Sarkar, with us in this introductory list of SRIJAN members as we still can’t think or believe that Phanida is no more with us. He was the eldest member of our club, but his age was not the reason he left us so soon. He was 76 and still full of energy, going in almost every outing of the club, far and near, alive and kicking, and just left us all on a sudden in April this year. Blood cancer tore him away, with so short a notice, from us and from his loving family who are also closely associated with the club.

Phanida completed his diploma in photography with Photographic Association of Dum Dum in 2006 when he was 69 and most of his batchmates were about half his age or even less and he chose a tough subject of “glassware photography” for his paper and cleared it through, which many of his bathmates could not. Such was his normal level of energy and tenacity. Besides he was a fine poet also. Every time we went out with him for a few days, a new poem on our outing had always been the gift to all after coming back. He also contributed regularly to the local literary magazines. He was in love with photography for many years and we had the opportunity to enrich ourselves by his experiences which he always shared freely. He participated in many photo salons/contests quite successfully.
