This picture was probably taken around 1965 in our front yard. I am on my brand new tricycle which I got for my birthday. We lived in Adamjee-Nagar which was a small community about 14 miles outside Dacca, the capital of the then East Pakistan. I used to love playing in our front yard. I went to Narayanganj English Preparatory School and on weekends we visited my cousin Ashraf in Dacca city. For me and my siblings, life was easy and fun!

 This pictures were taken at a time when trouble was already starting to brew in the then East Pakistan. We never imagined what would be coming next!
