    She used to work for our hostel which we call mess. A 1200square feet apartment for 8 individual men from all over Bangladesh. People comes to the capital for study and job purposes. So all of these bachelors who grew up under there mothers hand suddenly had to arrange all the daily livings by themselves. so there i met her. She works 4 different houses a day and also looks after her family at the same time. Lives in a typical slum of dhaka. She is a true unsung Hero.
