Comment from a childhood friend

In the comments book for the Hamburg concert, someone wrote a comment in Bengali. His name is Himangshu Shekar Vadra. He called me 'Chinmoy-da' and said he was overwhelmed and deeply moved by the concert.

He and I knew each other so well. My brothers and sisters also knew him. We were brought up together; right from childhood we knew one another.

His brother used to run with me; he was our third best runner.
