At that time British police took the initiative to withdraw camps and barracks on campus area. Aditya Chandra buys two houses by 30 taka from the British police. Madhu Daa was then 15 years old. He began a food business with his father since 1934-35 at the Dhaka University. Madhu Daa picked the rudder of the business after his father's death in 1939.
