Narail’s silver on the way to Chatmohar in search of father


I don’t remember my father’s face clearly. Because my father disappeared when I was 4 years old. Even at the age of 25, I am still looking for my father. Rupa Khatun, who came from Narail to Pabna’s Chatmohar to look for her father, was crying again and again while saying the words.

He was seen in the Chatmohar Upazila Gate area on Thursday (July 4) afternoon. Rupa is a resident of Kalia upazila in Narail. His father’s name is Noor Islam Mollah.

Rupa Khatun said, ‘When I was four years old, my father went to Khulna to sell vegetables. He did not return after that. He doesn’t even have a photo. I don’t remember the face clearly. When someone asks about the father, the liver is torn. At the father-in-law’s house, when the topic of the father comes up, bitter words are heard. But father was with us. He did business from many houses in the area. How many people know him? I remember him all the time. At this age, I remembered a lot. So I came to my father’s village house in Chatmohar to search.’

It is known that his father Noor Islam Molla’s house is in Chatmohar, Pabna. Thirty-thirty-five years ago, his father went from Chatmohar to Shuktgram in Kaliya, Narail.

There was sheltered by a man named Gaffar Ali. Later he married Rahima Begum (Rupa’s mother) daughter of Altab Molla of that village. After marriage, Altab was living with his wife in Mulla’s house. A vegetable shop in the area. He also bought six percent of the land. Two children named Rupa Khatun and Nur Jahan were born to Noor Islam Mollah and Rahima Begum. They were having a good day. After living for fourteen to fifteen years, Rupa was four years old. One day Nur Islam Molla went to Khulna to sell vegetables. He did not return after that. Despite searching all possible places including Khulna, Rupa’s mother and uncle could not find her.

Rahima Begum never came to Chatmohar to find her husband out of pride. He only heard this in a village called Diyar or Diara in Chatmohar, home of Noor Islam Molla. Rahima Begum with her daughters Rupa and Nurjahan stayed in the shelter of her brother. Married two daughters.

Rupa said, ‘His father’s age would be between 50 and 60 years now. Five feet six inches tall. There was a light pressure beard on the face. They don’t even have a picture of their father. Father said his house is in Chatmohar. It is not true or false. I don’t know whether he is alive or dead. I heard that my grandfather’s name is Abdul Mollah. I will suffer if I don’t find my father. Rupa seeks everyone’s help in finding her father.’
