“This is my daughter. People are often surprised to hear her name. They think it is a foreign, Christian name. We actually found this name in an Islamic book. I really want her to complete her education. Since I could not complete my education, it will bring me some comfort if she can.
We have recently admitted her into a Madrassa. I could have admitted her to a Bangla medium school but call it superstition or not, since I could not finish my education in this medium, I did not want the same to happen with my daughter. Thus, a different medium. I just want her to focus on her education now.”
