The calendar was the fans’ sign of affection for the couple and their respect for their happy married life. “The kind of love shown by Neel Pawan da to Dipali baideu always inspires me. Today, I am very happy to offer this small gift to them,” Dhanjit Das said.
The artist couple passed some time with their fans under the warm morning sun, chatting and smiling and Baruah, moved by the love shown by their fans, said it was a happy day for them. “I am very happy to see our faces on a calendar. I am delighted that people have come to wish me this way in the beginning of the New Year,” he said.
Around 750 copies have been published and will be distributed free of cost.
