Most women criticize I am anti feminist, so, none came forward to spend a little time with me. I remained alone. But on the contrary, all my poems and paintings are on the theme the women or on the power of women. I am very unlucky, I could not draw their attention. This painting titled ' Woman and dream' proves my fondness for womankind. You can see my works on women Click here
Dr. Naboday paul painted this, three women
We went to visit Baidyanath Dham, temple, 'babar mondir' most crowded and busy pandas ( agents of priests and commodity sellers) are soliciting. To me these are nuisance creating trouble to public, there should be strict administration from Govt side for the benefit of pilgrims

Very beautiful temple
