Fazle Rabbi is the symbol poverty. He is a bright student. His study is about to lose direction in the middle of the way. He lives at Rampur village at 2 no Eshania union of Bochaganj upazila under Dinajpur district.  He is the youngest of the three brothers. His father Sabul Islam is rickshaw van driver. Rabbi is good at study from childhood. Poverty forced the family to shift to Dhaka. He was engaged in some odd job for earning money to support the parents. But he got admitted to a school in the capital as seventh grader. It was difficult for him to continue job and education simultaneously. At one stage, he decided to abandon study. His elder brother and a maternal aunt tried to extend support and facilitate study. He secured GPA-5 in the SSC from science group. He got admitted to Dinajpur Govt College. After obtaining GPA-5 in HSC, he took part in medical admission exam. He got admitted to Pabna Medical College. But he was in a fix to continue study of MBBS which involves huge cost.

However, Bochaganj Upazila Nirbahi Officer Chanda Pal, Shuvo Sangha and local philanthropist Afsar Ali stood beside him.

Talking to this correspondent, Fazle Rabbi said “When I was seventh grader, I was encouraged by a senior brother to wear white apron. By the grace of Allah, I got chance in medical and dental colleges both. But I preferred MBBS. I was worried about arranging admission fees and education cost. In the mean time, Bochaganj Upazila Nirbahi Officer Chanda Pal Madam, Shuvo Sangha and local philanthropist Afsar Ali uncle extended financial support to get admitted to the medical college.”

Rabbi also acknowledged the assistance of his paternal uncle Md Abdullah Al Mamun who helped a lot. He tendered gratitude to the daily Kaler Kantho’s social organisation Shuvo Sangha.

“I am continuing my medical study in the befitting manner with the stipend of the Shuvo Sangha. There is no obstacle to materialising my dream to be a physician.”
