Firm determination triumphs over physical disability

Popular News

Nothing is impossible in life. Humans started struggling to survive from the primitive age. They learnt to ignite fire by friction of stones to eat burnt food. They have overcome the barriers of primitive, ice, stone and medieval ages by dint of merit and scientific discoveries.

From the state of being Neanderthal, people have become smart and worthy.

Humans are going through constant struggle which has no end.  However, firm determination, honesty, sense of dignity, strong personality and introspection are weapons for the struggle.

Mohammad Ali is one of some persons who become real heroes by showing exceptional performance in the struggle in life.

He lost his arm in motor-run sugarcane crusher at the age of 17. In a critical condition, he was taken to Rajshahi Medical College and Hospital and he underwent a surgery there.

Son of Md Sajjad Hossain, Mohammad Ali is now earning livelihood for his five-member family by pulling rickshaw with one hand.

Hailing from village Bagbari Miapur  of Shibganj upazila under Chapainawabganj district, he has taken up a job of rickshaw pulling at Solmaid area under Vatara of the capital Dhaka.

Meeting all costs of food and accommodation, he can save Tk 500 daily and send it to his family members in the village home.

Talking to daily sun, he said “I am pulling rickshaw with one hand to lead a dignified life. I don’t like begging. I have overcome the barriers of disability with honesty, hard working and strong confidence.”

Replying to a query, he said his phone number is 01737850420.
