Bangla College Hostel, Mirpur, Dhaka
My dear father,
It seems to age that I have left you all for my hostel. Living in the college hostel, I am not in a position to know the prices of daily necessaries in our area.
I, therefore, feel like knowing about the prices of necessaries of daily life. I know it is very hard for you to defray the educational expenses of us all in addition to the family expenditure. It will be difficult all the more if the prices go up as it is reported in the national dailies. But one thing is encouraging that the price of rice is gradually getting down. Anyway, would you please let me know the price of essential commodities in our area. But I suppose the prices of fish and vegetables are relatively cheaper and easily available in our area being a rural one.
No more today. Convey my salam to mother and love to Rahul, Pinky and Sajal
I am well. With regards to you.
