A grandfather is a good guide and a good friend of a family. Md. Shaheed Miah is my grandfather. He comes of a noble family in an old village Khariala in Ashugonj. Now, he is 85 years old. He is a very gentle man. He is very kind, honest, pious and truthful. He is always friendly, helpful and co-operative. All are equal to him. He has no pride. He always puts on a very simple dress. He is very kind to the poor and the blind. His voice is very clear and sweet. He is very fond of fishing and gardening. He is also fond of reading books and newspapers. Kazi Nazrul Islam is his favourite poet. He often tells me very good and interesting stories. He loves me very dearly and deeply. My grandfather is a good friend of the poor.
