West Bengal (India) Chief Minister and powerful Indian leader Mamata Banerjee (66) and Nepal’s famous scientist and social engineer Mahavir Pun (66) are of the same age. Not only that, there are other similarities as well. They both always wear very simple clothes. They do not wear suits except during special gatherings.
Banerjee has been wearing the same cotton sari and slippers for more than 50 years. Whether she is a minister in the central government or a three-time chief minister of Bengal, she is proving to be a lioness.
Both are highly educated. Pun studied at a university in the United States. It’s not that they didn’t wear clothes. There is a similar reason for not wanting to wear shiny or branded clothes. When Mamta was studying in school and college, she was young, she wanted to look good, at that time Mamta did not have money to buy clothes. I always had to live in a normal sari. When he could wear the clothes he liked, his age and age were gone. Simplicity was already recognized.
When Mahabir came to Kathmandu to study in college again, he was not in a position to wear good clothes. He studied at Amrit Science College, then became a master in the village and taught. The desire to look good also ended. Plain and casual clothes became a habit. Nowadays, even though he have the status of a buyer, he don’t just want to wear good clothes.
Simple life has become the common identity of Mahabir Pun and Mamata Banarjee.
