Myself

I was born in Ranisankail Jamidarbari. The arena surrounding Jamidarbari was known as Mahutpara. During the month of Ashwin and Karthik people of this area suffered too much, I felt sorry for them. At Thakurgaon Kalejaparara I also saw a lot of people living in distress. While I was at primary level I have decided to study Humanities seeing the people’s agony. At class nine in the Zilla School when I asked respected Moslem sir that I would study humanities, he called my father. My father was a different person. He did not insist us on doing anything. He gave the consent to the head master Abdul Aziz sir.

I stood 12th in Humanities from Rajshahi Education Board in SSC exam. My elder Brother brought me Dhaka to attend college admission tests. After filling out the form of Dhaka College I was told not to submit it. Later on i came to know that if anyone gets more than 650, he will be directly admitted to the college with an allotment in the hostel. I got 684 marks. After graduating from college, I had no plan to go outside the capital. My two elder brothers had gone to University of Rajshashi, they told me to attend the admission test at least. I attended the test got the first place in the merit list. During interview with the dean's office, the teachers were very surprised at my choice, I chose Social Work. Then I attended the admission test of University of Dhaka. 30 out first 50 in the merit list were my college classmates. I stood 19th. Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences of the University of Dhaka respected Anoarullah Chowdhury sir told me to take Economics or Anthropology. I told them, I would study Social Welfare. I was allotted in room number 519 at University Hall named Bangabandhu hall. After a few days I took permission from Provost Abu Zafor sir to be allotted in room no 420 as it is easy to remember. In addition to my study I was involved in student politics. Most of the time I read after 12 AM.

I passed honors and masters with first class degree and stood first. Due to the political change I could not become a faculty of the University. I still regret for this. While I was studying, in 1988 I established an organization named ESDO. I later on joined there. That was the actual plan. For this reason, I did not go to Japan though I had the Monbukagakusho Scholarship. In fact, at that time Thakurgaon was underdeveloped. The service sector, businesses sector or Agriculture sector was not affluent enough too. Since then, I realized to change a country is a very big deal. At least this small area can be changed, we hoped. Now our program has reached beyond the country's border. In my life, my father was the Idol. He was that kind of a parent who handed over the “Mother” of Maxim Gorky during our seventh grade. I used to read books since my childhood. I can tell you, I've read almost all the books from Thakurgaon public library of that time. I have read more than thirty six thousand books of Social welfare Institute’s Library of University of Dhaka. Still now they call me to ask about some books queue. Book shows the enlighten path. The way that my father had shown helped us to go far ahead. With the help of my friends, I have established Tangon Sports and Literature Club. Almost every one of our family are connected with different co-curricular activities. Now sometimes it seems to me that I have had all this opportunities to work only by not becoming a University faculty. I got the opportunity to work on a greater scope. Many of us are now doing great in different sectors and enriching Thakurgaon. I have only one earnest request to them, please remember Thakurgaon no matter of how much you achieve in your life."
