FB post shows PM Sheikh Hasina cooking

Update : 27 Jul 2013, 02:13 PM

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Saturday herself cooked “chicken polao” for her son, Sajeeb Ahmed Wazed Joy, on his birthday.

A picture of Sheikh Hasina uploaded on Joy’s Facebook page shows the prime minister cooking in the kitchen.

She is seen holding a wooden spoon stirring chicken in a pot. She also wore an apron over her white saree.

“A special treat for everyone. The Prime Minister cooking chicken pulao for me! Her pulao is really the best I have ever tasted," the caption by Joy reads.

Joy’s 42nd birthday was celebrated in a low-key with family members-- mother Sheikh Hasina, wife Kristine Overmyre, daughter Sophia and sister Saima Hossain Putul and her four children at the prime minister’s official residence Ganabhaban.

In a message on his facebook fan page, Joy said he refrained from publicly celebrating his birthday as “one of our Members of Parliament Mr Golam Shabur died in a tragic car accident. Our deepest condolence and sympathy to his family. May his soul rest in peace.”

Hasina’s eldest child was born in 1971 in Dhaka during the Liberation War. Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman named him after the nation won victory.

The PM’s son also thanked everyone for wishing him birthday and said, “It is really wonderful to be able to celebrate my birthday surrounded by friends and family in Bangladesh. Kristine and Sophia are here, along with my sister and her clan – she has four kids. The only ones missing are my aunt and her kids.”
