There was a country like our Bangladesh. There was no king in that country. Was the Queen . The Queen was extremely greedy, skillful and intelligent. No one could dare to say anything against her. Some said, in lieu of murder, murder or suicides in jail.
There was a shepherd boy in that country.
So old story grandma . Have heard many times Say a new one. Munni began to say to me to tell you this story, to remind me, “There was a shepherd boy. He used to scream as he “grazed tigers, tigers have come” to shepherd the sheep. The villagers came to know about the racket and arms that came out of the tiger. There was no tiger coming to see. The shepherd boy saw a small cottage, and it was fun to see. One day the tiger is really coming. That day he screamed. The villagers did not trust him, came forward to help, the tiger caught the shepherd boy and went away. “The person who believes in the liar does not believe. Is not your story?
Hey Before you listen? He is not a same shepherd boy . This is a banker’s shepherd .
Banker shepherd . ?
But what are you saying? Such shepherd lac is a fair load.
There were two brothers named Tota and Ata in Offensive village of that country. Their parents were very poor people. Hand to mouth, this type of family did not eat at all without eating. Tota and Ata also got their parents admitted to the local school even among the poor. There were some classes and they did not read out. He left the school and took a tomb with his father.
By the time of Class 3, he resigned in study and joined the father and his elder brother in agriculture. Two brothers, then the keeper of the whole Cows and goats are run in the field from morning till evening.
One day Tota came and Ask ‘Ata ?
This evening will be the folk song at the school? Do you like to go ?
Yes brother , I want to go! People do not go to work clothes? We do not have
Hey, there are many people in the village who are poor like us. They will come too.
At that time Munni said they were so poor ! Is it not Grandma .
Yes, grandmother replied, very poor.
Giving a response to Munni, the grandmother said, could you give me a Betel leaf and some nut from the tray ?
Munni shrugged and said, you only take Betel leaf and nut all the times . Anyone take so much at night?
I do, if someone does not take.
She say’s Okay. And Get up and leave the bed and give the Betel leaf and some nut to her grandma.
After chewing the betel nut she began to tell the story again, with a towel with a loincloth and neck, two brothers started to listen. At the field of folk song Ata was surprised and shocked! there are Nice environment around me happy! If I could be like everyone. When he returned home, he told his elder brother. Even after the younger brother, it was very difficult for the youngest to wear.
The next day the elder brother he meet with the Headmaster at the school for the younger brother’s wish The Master did not want to take Ata to school.
He said that Not everyone is educated. And for just three months of the test, how can your brother learn everything?
I know my brother can do it. I guarantee.
At the request of the elder brother Master finally Ata agreed to take Ata admission in the school.
Only three months of the exam left. The dough fell in danger. There is no cloth, there are no books of class. How to pass the class will protect the brother’s face.
At the time, Ata remembered one of his classmates. He was the best boy in the class.Mozammel his name. At the time when Ata fell into school, Mozammels would go to their house. His mother was very kind women . Ata decided to go to Mozammel’s house and tell his mother the hope of her mind and family all the words. That decision is that job. Ata one day went to Mozammel’s house. The woman agreed to respond to Ata. The shepherd boy started the new life , Who urns behind the cows- and goats whole day , Now he is running in the school in the morning with books in the bogey.
When the result of the test was revealed, the shepherd boy occupied the first place of class by overcoming all the students. In the same way, in the first phase, after passing class five, there is a junior high school in another village. One uncle of the teacher who was in school. When he would leave class seven, uncle said, the students took admission in the cadet college of the city. He must be admitted to the cadet college. If he gets admission, his future will be bright. As usual, the cadet sent the admission to the college admission and was selected in the initial stage for admission.
For the final selections, they were called to the capital city of the country. All the neighbors are happy for the fact that admission to the cadet college is going to get admission, but the admission will be frustrating.
Munni asks, why are you frustrated?
What can be seen on the interview board in the city of sandals and pajamas ? Do not wear beautiful pants and shirts? He was frustrated because there was no pants-shirt to fall on the interview board.
Finally, arrangement of pants shirts was arranged. The class maid Sahib lent his shirt to the school. After reading the pants shirt, went to the capital city to get the final interview.
Three months later the letter came. Ata is finally selected. The fees of cadet college is Tk 1,50. 1 hundred Taka scholarship will be given to the remaining 50 students will be paid. It’s another danger in the fall.
What danger grandma?
The family of Hand to mouth How to pay 50 Takas monthly salary?
Taking it down, he did not understand the cadet college.
Allah is always with him who does not have anyone. At that time a school teacher came forward to help Ata. He started taking extortion in various markets. After getting a few days, after collecting some money. Paying the fees for three months with the money.
After a few days of classes after the summer holidays everyone is very happy and going back home to their house. Principal noticed that when everyone was returning home after being happy, a student stood in the porch of the college. He went ahead to him. Asked him, What is your name my son ? You will not go home, why stand here?
My name is Ata. Yes, I will go home But I will not be returning to college. Ata started fluttering and weeping.
Why you do not come back?
My parents are very poor people. I was admitted to college with a small amount of money. He can not pay the wages. So I do not even have to return to college.
Principal wondered what he said! You’re not the boy, the number of interviews you got the highest number.
Your meritorious student’s education will be banished. No, no, it is not. Do not worry about this. Go home. Come back and see me. I’ll take care of you.
When he returned from the home, he knew that his whole wages were arranged for scholarship. Do not pay any. It started with the new enthusiasm of Ata- He jumped into battle for life with a strong promise. After completing the merit of each class, eventually, the country’s best university is filled with honors in Economics. His reputation abroad spread abroad in the university. After completing his studies, the university started its education.
In the absence of the governor of Queen’s banking sector and the executive director of the bank, the economic crisis started. He started looking for an expert and a knowledgeable banker. Knowing his qualities, The queen called him one day and appointed the governor of the central bank of the country.
When Ata was appointed the Governor of the Central Bank the recession of the country’s banking sector was cut. His reputation grew in the country and abroad. Many people started traveling around the country and many different titles were received from different countries, and many were rewarded. The queen was very pleased with his skillful management. But one person was not happy.
Who is that grandma?
Dewan of the Queen Whom we now call the finance minister. Dewan is very jealous in this country. He can not tolerate any better. He wants everyone to praise him. Many people dislike him at the Queen’s court but he was very fond of the Queen. He always kept her laughing at all times and forgot the Queen. There were no hair anywhere except the hair of the wizards on the four sides of the head. Many of the board called him a spindle minister .
Not happy with Ata’s success, He always used to tell his Alienation to the Queen, in which the queen had to take him away from the central bank governor. But the Queen did not listen to him. Rule Where Left Suddenly an accident happened.
What is the accident grandma?
The central bank’s huge amount of money was stolen through cyber hacking or faxing. He came to bear responsibility for the theft of his throat. But there was no fault of Ata.
This time the Finance Minister got the chance and pulled him away from the governor of the bank.In that country there was a number of Nobel laureates. Established a bank for the poor people of the country. He also removed him from his established bank’s director. Many of the local and foreign influential people had a sense of belonging to him or else he would also put him in jail.
Munni compromised and said, ‘Oh! I would have blown his head with a Sling shot.
Where did you get the Sling shot?
Brother has it .
Do you know grandma, what is the rack of slap! One day, brother threw the ball and killed a bird . What does the older Uncle brother talk about? He asked why he wandered. Then she asked grandmother again, after that, what happened at the time?
What will be ? He again went back The University teaching.
