Kumari Mamata Banerjee had come to our house, amongst other houses as she was contesting election against a CPM giant like Somnath Chatterji and sought our support to win in the Parliamentary election in 1984. She won the election in a comfortable margin. I remember that in talking to my mother she went to the kitchen. As my mother was cooking on a coal-oven, Mamata sat on the floor of the kitchen to be able to talk to my mother while my mother was squatting on the floor to make things ready for cooking. That demonstrated her simplicity. There is no doubt that her unquestionable honesty is the backbone of her strength. I think people like Sekhar Roy needs to associate with her for her success.
