The restless smile is always cheerful

Mohammad Ashraful Alam Khondokar

When he stepped in Dhaka for the very first time he was a refugee in that city. He had nothing to hold on to live; no food, no shelter. He built his luck by his own. Now he is a settler in Khilgaon of Dhaka.

While visiting Dhaka [the capital city of Bangladesh] we met a Tea-shop owner Mohammad Manik is known as “Manik Nana”. He has a tea shop near the Khilgaon Taltala City Corporation Supermarket, which is on the right side of Khilgaon Jhilpar Masque.

If he is asked how he started this business, there is a lot of stories of those dreams to love that brought him in this place today. He is running this tea-shop almost for two years. But he started his journey to this metropolis approximately at 1980s. From then he is unleashing his luck by his hard work and his intelligence.

He started his career in this metropolis as a rickshaw puller. After almost five to six years of time he left the job as a rickshaw puller. Then he started his career again at a restaurant as a waiter. He was there for seven years of time and he learned the business system.Then he left the job and opened up a tea stall by his own. He ran that business for three years. Mainly that business was just a little check-in on his ability to step forward. After having some capital stored and some loan he opened up a restaurant by his own. He ran that business for fourteen years. In the meantime he bought three CNG auto-rickshaw, built a building on his village and he bought a land of Nandipara on Khilgaon, Dhaka. After leaving that restaurant business he was aiming to have a retired life. After spending almost one year of retirement he got bored of retirement. So, again  here he is on field to satisfy his desire by keeping his soul happy.

Mohammad Manik was a rural inhabitant of the Bay-of-Bengals coastal area near largest mangrove forest Sundarban of Bangladesh . Now he lives in Khilgaon Taltola in a rented flat with his wife, two son and one daughter-in-law.

At this edge of his life he has some more dreams to live. He wants to secure his sons lives. He is expecting to build a house at Nandipara. He was saying his recent economical state is now possible only for his family members and it is time to fulfill his duty again as a father.

His smile never gets tired. Some people loves to being busy. There is no discomfort in this work for him. Moreover he make jokes with the customers. While gossiping he gets busy again in the crowd of the tea stall with a smile of success. All of a sudden humming sound breaks the silence- “Nana ? ek cup cha ar ekta cigarette [Brother? cup of tea and a cigarette].”
