Dreamers shine bright where poverty reigns


Kurigram: Rising above all hurdles with poverty being the striking one, five students hailing from the frontier district shone in this year's Secondary School Certificate examination, reports UNB.

Born and brought up in families struggling only to survive with minimum food, they kept on dreaming to be the country's top graders, shaking off all probable odds lurking in the way of their success.

All five dreamers got GPA 5 from science groups of Nilaram School & College in the district headquarter.

Success story of Rawshan Ali, a resident of Dakuara village in the district's sadar municipality area could have ended up unless he sold out his much loved bi-cycle to cater fees for being registered in his SSC exam.

Khalilur Rahman-- his father, a day labor--- could barely eke out a living for their five-member family with the paltry amount he earns, let alone pay for education.

Rawshan being the eldest of his siblings had been giving the best possible support in the earnings of his family since his childhood.

As Rawshan was approaching to the final round of SSC examination, the contribution of the eldest was also becoming imperative for his family. But the dreamers never lose hope, so did not Rawshan.

In the need of his survival in the day-time, sometimes a day laborer, sometimes a construction worker, Rawshan had to keep up late pursuing his studies in order to achieve the dignity of being a topper.

And thus Rawshan smiled a shining smile after he got GPA 5 in Secondary School Certificate exam 2018.

Then again the fear of being dropout haunts him what if poverty stands in the way of long journey of his dream--- being an engineer.

The journey has not also been easy for Sohrab Hossain, hailing from the same village.

He had to face many hurdles to pursue his education.

There were times he even feared that he might not be able to continue his study due to abject poverty of his family where three times food could barely be ensured let alone his education.

Sohrab very often had to toil as a local carpenter's helping hand to earn subsistence for his family with only one earning source ---his father, a van driver--- frequently suffering indefinite illness.

But all his struggles, hard work and determination paid off after he received his SSC result on May 6. Sohrab obtained GPA-5 in the examination.

When asked about the aim of his life, Sohrab hides his eyes after a while.

Later seen, tears had swelled up in his eyes thinking of the probable struggles in the trajectory of his dream---to be an engineer--- as pauperism still pulls him back.

Hailing from Char Bhelakupa-Majherchar village in the municipality area, Sharif Hossain could not have trust in his ear that his younger brother, Arifur Rahman, got GPA 5 this year as he himself had achieved the feat last year amid the long running hardships in their towed income family.

Like his predecessor brother, Arifur kept on his study by making money as carpenter's aide in order to support his family apart from his study.

Despite every impediments he should challenge in future, Arifur still wishes to go beyond himself to be a doctor.

Instead, another success story could have nipped in the bud if the deadline of this year's SSC registration would have been wrapped up with the boy's little shortage in due fees.

The story is about Redwan Ahmed, son of Nur Mohammad of Krishnapur Bakshipara village, a stone though distant from his school.

Little was his study cared of in the family of eight members where sole earning source his carpenter father struggles every day to make ends meet after disbursing his eldest daughter's education and paying for his son's education sounds a bit more luxury. Though Redwan is all smiles now after seeing his achievement--GPA 5-- online, his happiness starts to fade when he thinks about the next step to reach his goal---to be an engineer.

Apparently a stewardman of a five-member family even in his teenage, Raihan Hossain Rashu has been acclaimed for his confidence and patience more than for his academic feat--- achieving GPA 5---in this year's SSC examination.

He used to starve if his father, a wilding worker, could not manage to make bucks to support the family.

He had to leave out home for food for himself and his family members when school premises never sighted off from his mind.

But no such inconvenience could budge him an inch from his ambition to continue his study until his goal--- being an engineer---is achieved.

And it all depends on how he treads the path to the future.

To mention, 110,629 students achieved GPA-5 this year in this year's Secondary School Certificate Examination.
