If Ramadan has taught us anything, it is the power of charity and generosity

As the holy month of Ramadan comes to an end and we prepare to celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr with our family and friends, it is time for not only Muslims, but for all of us as citizens of this great nation, to take stock of what we have experienced in the past year. 

It is a time for us to both revel in our achievements and also reflect on the many lessons the holy month of Ramadan, and the past year, have taught us.

Being part of a nation such as Bangladesh -- which is experiencing rapid economic growth while also improving in the way it takes care of its citizens -- it is important that we understand that this has been achieved through the contributions of each and every one of us.

While the past year has not been without its challenges, it has also shown us how much we can achieve when we come together as a nation and eliminate the obstacles which stand in our path. 

At the end of the holy month of Ramadan, let us also embark on a journey to appreciate the ones we do have, while also working towards improving ourselves as citizens and the lives of those who surround us. 

At the end of the day, if Ramadan has taught us anything, it is the power of charity and generosity, and understanding the importance of taking care of our fellow citizens.

With that in mind, let us enjoy this much-needed break from the struggle of our daily lives and celebrate this joyous occasion with our closest ones. 

Eid Mubarak to all our readers.
