Tomorrow morning I am going to Brahmapur, south of Odisha with my daughter to admit her in a college, where she will continue her higher study for 4 years in the field of Fisheries Science. A new hostel life, new friends, new surroundings, new curriculum and new teacher... all new to her. For the first time, I am going to depart....I know this is only Maya ( illusion) but as a father it is painful. At last... my wishes are for her... for a peaceful, cheerful life in new environment.

Just packing her day to day needs...

Thanks for good wishes to my daughter....

    This conveys the mood perfectly: the bright and optimistic colours of the suitcase contents and the play of light and shadow around it. Wishing many good things for your daughter and hoping you are not too sad saying good bye to her!
