A Highway Engineer's Untold Story
Shaikh Fazlur Rahman had never thought of writing a book but destiny chose this path for him. With the varied development of professional and personal life and the vagaries of fortune over a span of half a century, he felt he had to take up pen and paper to share his dreams, efforts, successes and failures which were all intermingled in his heart. He counts himself fortunate to have experienced great moments of history - the last days of the British rule in India, then post-independent Pakistan and most importantly the great liberation war and the emergence of Bangladesh. He is a keen observer of the ups and downs of our country, the sufferings of people, the erosion of moral values in general and some drastic changes in the social system. He came in contact with great personalities who earned his respect and admiration as well as with some well-known individuals who had flaws. In this book he depicts a kaleidoscope of life-a life full of struggles and challenges, successes and happiness, sorrows and miseries. We hope the readers will find pleasure going through the book.
