Chapainawabganj, Bangladesh. December 23, 2014 [DrikNEWS] - Tarapur is a serene village, 40kms away from Chapainawabganj town at the border of Monakosha Union of Shibganj upazila. Nearly 500 families dwell in this village, of which mostly are needy. Children of these families cannot afford to go to school, and the few who go to school, are not regular. Village doctor Abdur Rashid tries hard and soul to bring these students back in the track of regular education. He teaches both children and adults of village. He was known as ‘doctor’ previously. Now everyone calls him ‘Rashid Master’. He had been doing this since last 33 years. Rashid Master even buys reading materials for children, though he sometimes cannot afford maintaining his own family properly. He teaches under the shade of bamboo garden behind his home. Mats and sacks are students’ chairs. Rashid Master teaches them for free of cost. The tuition goes on from 2pm to 3pm everyday. Rashid Master dreams of a literate Tarapur.
