All over the compact Delhi flat of Kaliabor (Assam) Lok Sabha MP Gaurav Gogoi, there is evidence of a Very Small Person at work. One wall is adorned by finger painted pictures. A shelf in a book rack is given over to picture books (5 Minute Dinosaur Stories and such). Gogoi has a four-year-old son and a daughter born just a few months ago.
