I met him when I was fourteen. He came to our family business as a truck driver. My father knew him and his family personally. He was a calm kind of person. He was just a driver to me who drive our heavy trucks. He doesn’t like to speak much. A mute being.
His name is Riazul Haque but widely it is Khaza. I asked him about this name and he replied nothing special. Most of the people don’t know about his real name. The poor people from village don’t waste time by thinking of a real name and use the short form. So Mohammad Riazul Haque became Khaza permanently.
Since 2008 he was not mentionable to any means. He was a ordinary person with lots of ego. My father mentioned his family was elite but for some unexpected issues he is poor now. In 2008 my sister told me he is a freedom fighter. From that day he is very special to me.
He is no longer a driver to our family business but a manager now. He is my father’s first man now. Few months ago I asked him about the war and he described his days. He was wounded by bullet that time. He was very brave.
He is my Khaza Kaku (uncle) a brave war hero who fought for this country. A very egoist person. A family member of mine. I am very proud to be a part of my family.
