  2. Please wherever you go to a clean place don't dump waste anywhere you like, keep it in your pockets and later when you see a dustbin use it to throw all those rubbish. The feeling of seeing my motherland getting hurt by making it dirty and littering hurts me and many more who keeps the place clean, that's it

  3. I had visited this place, in fact, the bamboo gate on the no-man's land separating then East Pakistan and India, just the afternoon before the war between India and Pakistan broke out! So many years! That war created Bangladesh.
