As DU teachers, all three sisters bring rare pride for women

DHAKA, Jan 03, 2022 (BSS) - They are the three sisters. But, one more
identity shines them that they all are the teachers of Dhaka University (DU)
which is eventually a burning emblem of women empowerment. Being the teachers
of highest educational institution in the country, they even bring pride for
all the women.

  The three sisters are Upoma Kabir, Shoily Kabir and Mithra Kabir. All are
the teachers of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering of DU.

  Their father Ahmed Kabir was also a teacher of the university and mother
Nilufar Begum was a teacher of Dhaka City College.

  Upoma said, "We have experience to see eminent educationalists from our
childhood and we had a wish to become like them. For this, we three sisters
come into the teaching profession. My father was also a teacher of Bengali
department and my mother used to give lesson on literature."

  Her sister Mithra said though their parents were the teachers of
literature, she decided to study in science because she had an attraction on
math and physics.

  She was also an artiste of Chayanat. She received award in star search
competition in 2004 as well.

  Their another sister Shoily said, "My mother always told us that modern
people should study in modern subject. She (mother) was far sighted."

  She said, "I got the entry result of Dhaka University after taking
admission in medical. Later, I got admitted to Computer Science Department of
DU as I thought that it was my own place".

  But, the story of Upoma is little different from her two sisters. She was
admitted to the Department of Theoretical Physics of Dhaka University in

  Upoma said earlier technical education was not so much important. All
thought that economics, literature and math are the good subjects, she added.

  She said, "My uncle was a professor of physics and a Kali Naryan Scholar.
For this, my mother thought that a good student is a student of science".

  Upoma said, "My father was very broad minded and his thought was that a
person can expose himself through his full independence".

  The three sisters informed that they got chances to be admitted to the
medical and BUET. But they decided to study in Dhaka University.

  They all extended their gratitude to their parents and said it was possible
only for them. They were their strength to grow up themselves in such way,
they said.

  Upoma said every parent love their children. "But few of them, could become
friend of their children. And our parent is our friend," she added.
