It's not about rice, it's all about the hard work and dedication of my parents especially my father, who was the mentor of my brothers including myself.

Unfortunately he could not see the success of his children.

That was pretty early in his career, he built the network infrastructure of BAT Bangladesh before leaving for America. At that time BAT was the only company which matched with his field of expertise.

BTW, he is a non smoker.

Thanks Shahriyar.

I am coming to San Diego, California in next April to attend the annual conference of American Association of Cancer Research (AACR) where I will present my research work.

I am lucky that my elder brother lives in Las Vegas which is not far away from San Diego.

It's a very difficult imagination for me.

I am sure my brother will have a good laugh if he sees your post.
