Made me so proud to even think about it!!! Great to see that "Bangladeshi" identity has been mentioned.

This was at the top of the Most Emailed Story and the Most Viewed Story lists on Yahoo all this morning.

This is remarkable. Honesty is such a rare and precious thing in life. I'm proud he's a Bangladeshi.

Honest and happy, makes sense

Yes.
In afterlife he will be awarded Anna Nicole Smith, the skinny one.
If he didn't return it, he would have been awarded Anna Nicole Smith, the fat one.
Oh Osman, Anna is waiting for you!

Now, Mr. Osman is receiving huge media attention and is flooded with praise and awards,

Quote:
A Bangladeshi immigrant taxi driver in New York is the toast of the Big Apple after returning a $500,000 lost bag of diamond rings to their rightful owner. Osman Chowdhury's honesty has made him an instant celebrity, propelling him onto the city's airwaves to receive the plaudits of the great and the good.
Quote:
For the last two days he has also been interviewed by scores of news organisations in the US and across the globe.
In addition, the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission has honoured him with an Achievement Award for 2007. Even the City Council of New York City has joined in, by given him a citation praising his honesty.
And the word is that the New York City Mayor, Michael Bloomberg, may announce a reward for him.
Quote:
The members of the Bangladeshi community in New York are proud of this son of the soil.
"There are good and honest people in every community. But with his deeds Osman has made us all Bangladeshis very proud," neighbour Shafiq Alam said.
