A Tribute to my father—Professor Bakshi. D. Sinha

It’s rightly said that illustrious people live through their work and they don’t go anywhere. They live on, because of the contributions, which they have made for the welfare of the people and the society as a whole.
This applies to my father as well. Prof. Bakshi. D. Sinha, who left for his heavenly abode, a year back, but lives on, because of his several contributions, towards the literary World, through his social contributions, many research works, for the betterment and upliftment of the common people, through his vast and deep knowledge of the economy and the society.

Besides all this, and many more of his exemplary qualities, he was a hard working human being, selfless, honest, always ready to help everyone, an affectionate, doting and caring father and a loving grandfather.

A firm believer in the power of the Divine, he was a very well organised and systematic person, and very punctual. He paid attention to the smallest details and never lost hope, never gave up, and never complained. He believed in simple living and high thinking. My mother was always a pillar of strength in all the thick and thin, trials and tribulations of his virtuous and well lived life.

His legacy remains, through all the good work he has done, through his books, which can be found in various libraries in India and in other parts of the World. It’s easily available, through Google search, and on Amazon. You just have to type his name—Professor Bakshi.D.Sinha.

My father was writing at a time, when online writing was not prevalent. There were no computers. All his books were published in the traditional way. Those were the days of print books. I remember, he used to work hard, doing research, collecting data and information, typing manuscripts himself, doing rounds and rounds of editing. Several days of hard work was involved, before getting the book published, by a reputed publisher.

Bakshi. D. Sinha—An affectionate and caring family person

My father was a complete family man. He was a devoted father and an affectionate and loving grandfather.

Having lost his parents, at an early age, he had a tough childhood. Being a brilliant student, he worked hard to get his education. A self made man, he taught the young children, to pay for his college fees.

He was a great artist as well, and was wonderful in drawing and sketching. He was brilliant in the art of pencil sketching and had the honour of making portraits of Mahatma Gandhi, Shri Rajendra Prasad, the first President of free India and many more.

He had the quality of making everyone comfortable with him, with no ego at all, in spite of being such a learned and experienced person.

He always helped everyone, who needed it. He has touched so many lives and commanded great respect from anyone, who came into contact with him, because of his simple and helpful attitude.

To Conclude:

My father passed away at the age of ninety plus. He lived his life quite well, worked exceedingly well, was able to complete all his responsibilities, as a family person with great satisfaction. But for all this, he worked hard relentlessly, throughout his life.

He believed in sincere and hard work and taught us, his children also, to follow the same. Do your best, and leave the rest (to God), was his teaching.

It’s not easy to sum up an illustrious life of nine decades in a few words or paragraphs. I would like to sum up this memoir, with this quote:

My Father didn’t tell me, how to live. He lived and let me watch him, do it.’

—Clarence Budington Kelland.
