Tribute to Firoz Mia, a rickshaw puller

The Daily Star on April 14 reported that a rickshaw puller named Firoz Mia set an example of honesty by handing over Tk 1 Lakh, which he found on the road, to the authorities concerned. It was a really unbelievable and surprising incident. Firoz could have easily taken the money and use this for his poor family. Instead, he handed over the bundle to the authorities without even counting the money.

In a country where many educated people are involved in corruption, Firoz has rightly proved that poverty is not necessarily the cause of corruption.

We often award many scholars, players, businessmen, artists and other professionals for their exemplary accomplishments. It is high time we found out people like Firoz and paid them the due honour.
