Fisher woman

Cross posted in Rafiq's Eye

I went to my village to see my mother and observe Eid-ul-fitr. I went to Barisal by Launch. From Barisal launch terminal we came to Taltoli ghat by rickshaw and got in a boat to go to my village. (Crossing a small river by boat we can easily get rickshaw to go to my village but we always prefer boat journey). On the way I saw a fisher woman family and surprised to see their life in boat.

I bought fish from them talked to them. This boat is their house. They do all the household works in this boat. I was very much surprised to see that five people live in this boat and face storm, rain and tidal bore etc. Anjali, her husband ( Shipon), two children ( Nitu, Setu) and mother-in-law (Shefali) are living in this boat. Anjali’s husband Shipon told me that he got this boat from his father. His father is dead. He was also a fisherman. His mother is also a fisher woman.

I wanted to know how they are living in boat facing rain, storm, cyclone etc. They told me that they are habituated in living in this way. Fishing is their inherited profession and they love it. They catch fish in the river or canal and sell in the market. Sometimes they sell fish to the villager going door to door.

Anjali told me that they have been facing problem to live in this small boat. If they can save money they will buy or build a big boat and this is their only dream.

My future plan

By Zannat-Ul-Ferdous

Success in life depends on the perfect choice of a profession. Every person has a future plan in life. Some wants to be a doctor, some wants to be a pilot and join some other professions. Different person has different aims. But my aim in life is to be a professor of any government or private college. Because I feel it is a noble profession.

In our country, most of the people are not educated. They want to study but only for a better job. They are not interested in the main motive of education. It is known to all that a self-educated person is a real educated person. That is why; I want to be a teacher. If I become a teacher then I will try to make students understand about the real motive of education. I strongly believe that success in life depends on willpower and hard work. I hope I will be able to reach to my destination.
