A Short Note on Sher-e-Bangla A. K. Fazlul Huq

The great leader of our country whom we love and admire is Sher-e-Bangla A. K. Fazlul Huq. From his boyhood, he was a very meritorious boy. His father Kazi Wazed All was a renowned pleader in the Barisal Bar. One day the boy Fazlul Huq was reading in his study. His father was passing by. He saw Fazlul Huq was learning his lessons and tearing off the pages of his book one after another. He at once entered the room and said, “O my boy, don’t play with your book.” I am not playing. I have already gone through these pages. So, I do not need them at all”, said he. His father wanted to test him. He asked him to quote some lines from pages of his book. Fazlul Huq quoted the pieces from memory word for word. He was greatly charmed at the wonderful memory of his son. He thought his son would one day he a great man in the subcontinent.
