A bamboo bridge….


The photo shows the back of Saadat University College, one of the first five university colleges of the country. It was established in 1926 at Karatia, Tangail by Wazed Ali Khan Panni, a renowned zamindar and educationist of Karatia, Tangail. It is widely known as Karatia Saadat College. Sadat College is the first college in Bangladesh established by a Muslim zamindar. The founder member of Saadat College was Principal Ibrahim Khan. He was the first chief executive of the college. He worked in the college till 1947. The college was upgraded as a degree college in 1938. In Saadat College, the Honours course was commenced in 1966 and the Masters course was commenced in 1974. The government of Bangladesh announced the Saadat College as a national university college on July 7, 1979. It has Honours programme in 16 subjects and Masters programme in 10 subjects. This university college is well recognised as a postgraduate college. More than fifteen thousand students, both male and female from different districts, come to this renowned university college. The college has three entrances; two of them are all right but the problem is with the 3rd one. Hundreds of students from college para as well as neighbouring areas have to go to college every day using this bamboo bridge. This is very risky for the students as well as senior citizens.
