On the front porch of our home in East Pakistan

I am sitting in my mother’s lap for a family photo with my brother and sister. My mother was the eldest of her 8 siblings and I remember her as very resourceful person.

We had lots of banana trees, oranges, Dahlia, roses in our front garden. My mother loved gardening and kept our front yard beautiful and fragrant.
She enjoyed learning and cooking local cuisine of East Pakistan. She made rice and fish which I wasn’t fan of eating. She thought it would make us clever. God bless her!
