"Emphasising on Value of Bondhutava - Friendship
Few days passed by but invariably out discussions centered around forming an organization or club. In one of our pool-in family dinners one of us asked what should be the name of the organization. There was unanimity that the name should have a Bengali touch.
Brototi Boudi said: “Why not call it Aaponjon Sangh” (An Association of We people).
“Nice name,” BM Da said throwing a glance towards his wife Brototi through cornor of his eyes. There was sense of appreciation in his eyes.
Everyone liked this name. There was almost an unanimity that our yet-to-be formed organization should be called Aaponjon Sangha.
Debjani Banerjee quickly produced two logos to enable us to choose one.
Just to judge this name’s acceptability among non-Bengalis I asked my friends in office about the name – Aaponjon Sangha.
Shalabh Saxena, in-charge of Sports Desk, looked at me for few seconds and then tried to pronounce it stressing on O’s than A’s. “In fact it is a nice name. Non-Bongs would like this,” he said pronouncing Aaponjon stressing again on O’s.
