Once I went for a day out in Ashulia. There I saw a fishing boat was coming towards the banks. When they reached, I noticed it was full with fish. And this man was cleaning the fishing basket then filling it up with fish. Then suddenly he looked up, and gazed at me with sheer boldness. It was full with audacity. It showed, he was not afraid to fight the poverty with hard work, to meet his daily needs, and to give his family little food and happiness. He might learned fishing from his forefather, and kept doing it with hard work, like a real hero, fighting poverty with boldness.
