Freedom in the air

Shakib's rice challenge

Ace all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan yesterday took part in the 'Rice Bucket Challenge', a Bangladeshi version of the 'Ice Bucket Challenge' that went viral on social media. It involves dumping ice water on one's head to promote awareness of the disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and encourage donations to research.
The concept  entails individuals to donate rice to the poor. In his facebook post, Shakib wrote, "I thank whoever nominated me. I accepted the challenge and I nominate all my facebook friends and fans hopefully you guys will accept my challenge."
