Embraced by it long before understanding of anything around
By Sajid Hossain
Yes, I’ve survived! Thanks to the Almighty for such caring parents, grandparents and uncles who did everything within their reach to help me.
I was mischievous but not as much I wanted to be, actually I couldn’t. Polio embraced me when I was six months old. I was raised in extreme care and got little chance to join normal kids in any sports. But I have managed to achieve the highest academic goal, a PhD in engineering. While some have declined others have extended their both arms wide open in support and love. I’m a husband, yes, of a beautiful lady who has accepted me with all my weaknesses. I’m a father of a wonderful boy who understands his father’s weaknesses and doesn’t ask for anything that he will not be able to get from me.
Life is beautiful with all the good people around. It is sometimes difficult but I have survived with the grace of the Almighty.
