Happy Birthday-Mr. Ripon-Bijoy Bhai--

Bijoy Bhai e Mr. Bunny

Besides Victory Day, another significant event occurred on 16 Dec 1971: the birth of Md. Ripon Miah Sarkar, also known as Mr. Ripon, driver & logistics person to many foreigners bideshis, proud father of two daughters, devoted husband, uncle mama to many, and driver-business owner. Despite a struggled life where he had to stop school at class 5 to support his mother, he has worked very hard to develop and educate himself and build his driving business. Without his expert driving, translation, logistical support, and ability to work-drive with many different kinds of people on six of my seven trips, I would not have been able to do my research. If you are interested in his driving services, you can contact me and/or the Nari Jibon office.
