Jorhat, Dec.2 : All dreams of Rajmi Lekha Borah of Jorhat appear to have been shattered since the day she lost her husband in the recent serial bomb blasts in Assam.
Lekha today is leading life in a vacuum, waiting for her husband to return. Her heart doesn't accept that her husband Dilip Borah is no more and hence will never return.
Lekha keeps on staring into the vacuum, waiting for her husband to return, but unfortunately, he never will.
Dilip was the sole breadwinner for his family comprising a wife and two daughters.
"What can I say about our miseries. We lost my husband's brother last year and now after my husband there is nobody to depend upon. I have no source of income. Our entire family depended on their income. But now that the two have been taken away I seek help. Will the government look at our plight?," said Rajmi Lekha Borah.
Dilip Borah used to an entrepreneur and a social worker of his region. He was in Guwahati to meet the State's chief minister Tarun Gogoi to talk about the problems of his region.
Little did Dilip know that he would himself become the victim of mindless violence unleashed by militants.
Soren Dutta, one relative of the deceased, said: "I appeal to the government and other organizations to extend every possible help in helping the children of the victims."
Dr. Debobrat Sarma, one local resident in Jorhat, said: "The people of Jorhat today together condemn this dastardly act and oppose any effort or conspiracy at communalizing the whole issue. We demand that the people who are behind the conspiracy should be brought to book and punished."
The tale is not just limited to the Borah family. There are many others who have suffered a similar fate.
This is not the first instance when United Liberation Front of Asom or ULFA, the prime suspected organisation behind the recent Assam blast has committed such acts of violence.
Time and again the ULFA has hurt many families and destroyed many dreams. By Vaschipem Kamondang
