Oinam in 2019

Amara started 2019 with her hair fully-grown and intact. She wants to make-up, tries the lipstick, and believes she can be like her elder sister, and mom. Based on our tradition, she needed to shave off her birth-hair at-least once.

February started with an awful event. A family-friend, school-friend, and a life-long best-friend met with a car accident. On the third of Feb, 2019, Binny Oinam, his wife, and their daughter met with a fatal accident in Assam, India.

We will forever miss them.

Out of all the time to go on a family vacation, we went to Goa during the 2019 Indian Monsoon Flood. We had one hell of an experience and lived to tell our stories.
