“দুনিয়াতে বাইচ্চা থাইক্যা যেন মইরা গেছি বাবা! পেট ভরে কোনদিন খাওন পাইনি যা জুটত খাইছি, তাও তো থাকনের একটা ঘর ছিল। আইজ সেডাও বানে কাইড়্যা নিয়েছে।”
One child is disabled, the other does not even look after this old mother. There was a house where this disabled boy lived. What is the irony of fate today that house has also been destroyed by flood water! The cry of the helpless mother does not stop somehow. To reduce the cost of the sad mother, we have assured her to return her last refuge.
