About nine o'clock during the night, New Market area of Rajshahi city. Teacher of Philosophy department of Rajshahi University Anisuzzarman have to catch a rickshaw. A rickshaw puller called him, "Come Sir, where will you go?"

Suddenly he stopped when he tried to ride on the rickshaw. He cannot believe his eyes. The rickshaw puller is a Masters student of his department!

Anisuzzarman being embarrassed, the student came forward and said, 'Sir, I am driving rickshaw at night to earn the costs of study. Today I'm not able to earn the owners deposit money till now. So I calling, will you go to the university?"

Anisuzzarman rode up his rickshaw and came straight at the Prothom Alo office of Rajshahi. Name of the student is Sanowar Hossain (24). And his father is Aminul Haque. His hometown is Boyaldar village of Hakimpur upazila in Dinajpur. Sanowar is second among two brothers and one sister.

The elder sister has been married after passing SSC. The younger will sit for JSC exam this year. Sanowar's father have a small tea-sweets shop in the village market. They have 2.5 Bigha land.

Sanowar says, he was admitted to the Department of Philosophy at the Rajshahi University in 2009-10 session. His father mortgaged the lands for 1.75 lakh taka to bear the family costs. And have to take loans from 4 private organizations (NGOs). The loan has increased to 1.15 lakh in four years. His father has to pay 3 thousand taka per week as the installments of these loans. And the costs of his study in Rajshahi. Especially the amount of money from his home has reduced in Masters Level. So he could not afford, and taken the rickshaw's handles last year.

Account Benefit
Sanowar drives the rickshaw almost every day. Sometimes the body is disagreeable; he took rest on that day. He has to deposit Tk. 35 to the owner every day. Usually the passengers are not available after 2:00 pm at night. So he waits for the passengers of early morning train. He can earn Tk. 80 - 120 per night after paying the owners deposit. Sanowar was not successful in seeking tuition and part-time jobs before starting rickshawpulling.

Sanowar is the residential student of university's Habibur Rahman Hall. He was selling a monthly magazine after being admitted to the university. The magazine also closed. Classmates, friends and some big brothers from hall help him.

Sanowar said, he has debts of Tk. 2 thousand as the rent of hall seat and one month's dinning bill. And the Masters exams to begin at the end of this month. He cannot get the hall clearance if the rent of the hall seat will not be paid during master's form fill up. He's worried about it.

The teacher Anisuzzaman said, "I see him in the class every day. We were together at a study tour for 10 days. But never could understand this misery of this boy. I could not believe my eyes at first when I saw him on a rickshaw."
