She says it's not “hard work”. She is very happy to do what she does. When we went to visit her we saw that she and her husband were unloading 10 sher of hot milk and in two large containers were fresh curds. The process of the stirring and cooling was interesting to watch.

Aminata held him to her breast till her last breath, talking to him as if he could understand- as no doubt he did - telling him the prayer which eases death, yet still hoping for a miracle that would bring back her husband whom she loved so dearly.
Nabab Hochchamiya High School of Comilla
The century old school of Nabab Hochchamiya High School of Comilla is located in the northern part of the city. 122 years ago, the Nabab Hochchamiya had established this school at what is now Laksam upazila.
