"Hi once again.
Thanks for the reply. Actually I have been busy with my tea garden so I was not aware about your visit to lakwa. Thanks to the amida trust site through which we are in touch though. I am very glad that you remember us and our…"

Hello Udipta, its good to hear from you, and yes it has been a good while now, over a year in fact since we met each other. You may well be aware that I spent a few days in Lakwa this year - February - staying again at Kamala's house. My stay was only brief and the programme consequently limited, though I did make some helpful visits in that time. At the moment I am in Belgium visiting Sangha members and will return to London at the end of next week. I plan to be in North Lakhimpur for a month around the beginning of January 2013 as we have recruited and English language teacher and volunteer to work at Siddhartha Kendra Vidyalaya, the school run by Tathagata Trust. I should then have some time available to spend in Lakwa/Sivasagar but will only come if it will be helpful for me to do so and there is a programme. I have made some contacts with Bhikkhu's in the North east and may well stay for periods at Vihars around the region. I hope your work goes well and that you are making progress with the projects you are involved in. I would be happy to meet with you again if I return so do please stay in touch. I haven't forgotten your request for 'something from England'. Do write and tell me what has been happening in your life since we last saw each other.
