ZILKA GROGAN WHEN their first child was born in the US, without any close relatives nearby, Monalisa Sen knew she could rely on her hus- band, Sandipan, for support. The Burwood couple's eldest daughter, Shrimoyee, was born in 2001. ''I had to leave the hospital after two days and once I was out of the hospital, he was there all the time,'' Mrs Sen said. ''He would come home during his lunch break even though he had a very demanding job.'' Despite the pressures of his job as a senior project manager in IT, this week's Inner-West Weekly Father of the Year nominee always makes time for his chil- dren. Mrs Sen nominated her hus- band and described the 36 year old as ''the friendly bloke around the corner, having a fair go at life''. Originally from India, the fam- ily lived in the US and South Africa before settling in Aust- ralia four years ago. Mrs Sen said her husband spends all his free time with Shrimoyee, 7, and her sister, Tiya, 3. ''He has a special bond with the children,'' she said. ''Whenever he comes back home he's always really tired but he spends time with the kids until they're put to bed.''
