Here are some comments that came in response to Sunday's The Daily Star report headlined 'Ode to a fighter'. Touched by his plight, some of our readers offered to help the teacher, Ranjit Kumar, of Berakuthi Barua Dakhil Madrasa in Sonarai union under Sadar upazila of Nilphamari.
I salute him.
Thanks to The Daily Star for such a contemplating, truly inspirational story. We often forget ourselves, indulging in our own interests, family and friends. Can we learn from this real hero, and make an impact on other's lives in every possible and good way? Hats off to Ranjit!!

I only hope that some reader would bring this story to the notice of our successful Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid who will, I am sure, do justice to the dedicated teachers of the madrasa. I also thank the reporter for this write-up.
Ranjit, sir, I also salute you. In spite of your sore need, you are doing a lot to educate our nation. We are really grateful to you. I do believe our education minister is also an honest man. I think he will do his best to include this madrasa under monthly pay order (MPO).
Ranjit bhai represents the spirit of a true human being. He works hard with sincerity and honesty. If the rest of the government, especially politicians, worked like him, we would turn into a better nation. Leaders of both major parties can learn something from this.

Wonderful story of pride, self-respect and personal sacrifice. Ranjit is a hero and a model for us all, especially the children. My salute to Ranjit and thanks to Asaduzzaman for the nice story.
Hats off, sir.
Sitting in Delhi, I read the touching story of Ranjit sir. The story touched my heart as I was born in Nilphamari. I hope both lawmaker Asaduzzaman Noor and the education minister are good and honest people dedicated to improving the lives of the people, particularly the poor. As a fellow journalist, I wish to congratulate EAM Asaduzzaman for a good write-up. Asad, keep it up.
I salute this man and pray for his goodness.
