Shrimati Bhaumik (1923-2009) was born in Baishgaon, now in Bangladesh and migrated to India during the time of independence. Married at a young age, in a traditional family, she could not finish her school education but at home she was an avid reader of different Bengali magazines and books. She always believed that hands those help are better than lips those pray. Throughout her life she exemplified this simple philosophy.
