My Home Town
The name of my home town is Kishoreganj. It is a district headquarter and is only 145 kilometers north-east of Dhaka. The name ‘Kishoreganj’ came from the name of an old landlord known as Brojakishore Pramanik or Nandakishore Pramanik. There are 8 towns, 13 upazilas, 110 unions and 1794 villages in this district. The area of Kishoreganj town is 19.57 square kilometer. There are many important places in and around this small town. They are Solakia Eid ground, the Pagla Mosque, Govt Gurudayal College, the Shah Muhammad Mosque, the Shiva temple etc. Kishoreganj is also famous as the home of some important personalities like woman poet Chandrabati, Syed Nazrul Islam, the first acting President of Bangladesh, famous writers Upendro Kishore Roy Chowdhury and Sukumar. Zainul Abedin, the greatest master of painting, also comes from Kishoregang. Really, I am very proud of my home town.
