OBITUARY ; MR NELSON MANDELA

Nelson Mandela ; my hero ; a man taller than Everest... Grew up reading about his plight of life in Ruben jail in the pages of ittefaq( বিশ্ব সংবাদ পাতা ন ৫। ..)... rip mr Mandela; you showed the world what is called conviction, courage , leadership and tenacity .... I salute you from the bottom of my heart.......my thoughts and prayers for him and his bereaved family. What a great loss to the world. This is the main whose resilience and his impetus to press on to liberate the blacks of the world will be remembered by the future centuries to come.

I still remember those headlines in ittefaq ( ittefaq was very pro south africa in those days - 1977- 1986) 
that is where i learned the racial divide of the world 
the headlines were like 
''কৃষ্ণাঙ্গ নেতা নেলসন মেন্ডেলা বর্ণবাদের বিরুদ্ধে বিপ্লবের এক মহা নায়ক ''
''রুবেন দীপের জেলে কৃষ্ণাঙ্গ  নেতার দিনযাপন ( মাক মহারাজা - উনার বন্ধুর লেখা ডাইরি )''......don't know if any of you remember these ???? i do ; very clearly . i do....
long live the teaching of mr nelson mandela...............A man of true human value and conviction
