Rainbow Stories 7: Rangoli Man

BY TINAT ATIFA MASOOD
 
FROM THE CITY AFTER MY HEART, GUWAHATI!
 
And then there are some people who simply does nothing in life but makes people happy! 
 
Lob Kr. Sah is one of them. Six years ago, this I-keep-smiling-cause-I-have-no-worries-in-life gentleman relocated to Guwahati from Bongaigaon in search of a better life. He now works in the pharmacy at the B Barooah Cancer Hospital to makes ends meet. While still on duty, he is a man in demand around the hospital because of his creative inclinations.
 
I caught him at the hospital, happy as happy can be, creating Rangolis all over the facility on the occasion of International Day of Yoga. He had a huge crowd of inquisitive people around him as they stared in awe while he went about his work with colours.
 
A self-taught man, Lob is shy and hardly spoke about himself. But when I pestered him, he hesitantly but proudly took out a half-done embroidery on a poly-cement bag. Way to go Lob! I hope you reach new heights in your creativity!
