The ideas of these works are centered on my being but their expressions are universal. As I attempt to express myself in my work, our society finds an expression instead. Being born and brought up in a small town I had to struggle constantly with the city life, and still struggling against the conventional ideas of life. ……….. Nature gives whatever human being wants form Her, and She punishes us for our deeds – this is my belief.-sumana akter
