Kolkata: Joykrishna Ghosh, Jyoti Basu's personal aide of 33 years, was a forlorn man on Sunday.

"It feels like I have lost my father for a second time," Ghosh, who even accompanied Basu abroad since 1977, said while recalling his long association with Basu.

Ever since the 95-year-old leader shifted to Indira Bhavan, his official residence while he was chief minister, Ghosh was like his shadow.

"I am not in a position to speak now. I hold him in high esteem for the love and affection I received from him. I feel privileged," Joykrishna said.

Indira Bhavan was host to VIP visits while Basu was the chief minister and also after he lived a retired life till January one, when he was admitted to hospital with pneumonia.
