My Native Place

  • Durbachara is my own village. I was born in this remote village since earliest of sixty decade. This was also the native place of my ancestors from the time immemorial. My native village is located 12 kilo southern part of Kushtia district town. The western part of the village is covered by green vegetation, the fundamental paragon beauty of Bangladesh. Meanwhile,  the river Kali, the branch of Gorai, is passing hard time loosing her frenzy .Once upon a time this village was full of Durba grass (special herbaceous weed), that’s why the village is so named Durbachara.
  • So far the available historical records, few thousands of Muslims and Hindus are peacefully living in this village keeping fantastic communal harmony from the antiquity. This village played a glorious and vital role at the time of our liberation war since 1971. Durbachara was the safe base of freedom fighters. Our Solim chacha (Younger cousin of my father) played an utmost organizing role to direct the freedom fighters of this areas. The freedom fighters of Durbachara base camp conducted front to front and Guerrilla warfare with overwhelming speedy leaving the love of their lives.
  • A horror of front fighting was happened on 05 Sept 1971 at Bangshitala village, adjacent to Durbachara under the leadership of Durbachara base camp’s freedom fighters. Around 100 Pakistani military were killed and 11 freedom fighters lost their valuable lives. They were buried in front of Durbachara Primary School, where I studied. We have a very good mausoleum for the honor of those martyr in front of my Durbachara Primary School.
  • At that time this news was aired by Sadhin Bangla Betar Kendro and BBC Bangla service with topmost priority. Therefore I am proud that I was born in this historical impotence based village Durbacha.
