Although he survived but still he is carrying the wounds in the place where he was shot.

Despite the torture and oppression, he has lived a political life from being involved in politics of the Awami League. He did not lose hope even after suffering so much in life. He is writing impeccable stories with new enthusiasm. A message to the younger generation, `It is not over until it is over!
