Shamsur Rahman ( শামসুর রাহমান, 23 October 1929 – 17 August 2006) was a famous poet, columnist and journalist of Bangladesh. Shamsur Rahman, who emerged in the latter half of the 20th century, wrote more than sixty books of poetry and is considered a key figure in Bengali literature. He was regarded the ‘unofficial poet laureate’ of Bangladesh. Major themes in his poetry and writings include liberal humanism, human relations, romanticism, rebellion of youth, the emergence of and consequent events in Bangladesh, and opposition to religious fundamentalism.
Shamsur Rahman was born in his grandfather's house at Mahut-Tuli, Dhaka. His paternal home is situated on the bank of the river Meghna, a village named Paratoli, near the Raipura Upazila of Narshingdi district. He was the fourth of thirteen children. During leisure time, he used to go his Village and there beside the pond near to the house, he wrote one of the great poems
রবিঠাকুরের অজর কবিতা, অবিনাশী গান।
কাজী নজরুল ঝাঁকড়া চুলের বাবরি দোলানো
মহান পুরুষ, সৃষ্টিসুখের উল্লাসে কাঁপা-
শহীদ মিনারে অমর একুশে ফেব্রুয়ারির উজ্জ্বল সভা
পতাকা-শোভিত শ্লোগান-মুখর ঝাঁঝালো মিছিল…
Still today, all the things are in same spatial context. But, the building of his house is in very poor condition. It’s almost on the way to decay.
Paratoly Shahi Jem-e Mosque:
There is a three domed mosque beside the house of Shamsur Rahman, which was built in the Islamic year 1299.This 137 years old mosque still architecturally fit and being used for regular prayers.

[post_content] => Dighinala Bon Bihar, a very beautiful serene place is located on the way to Sajek valley. It is just before entering the Dighinala town (if you are coming from Khagrachhari).
This is a place for the Buddhist people. The Buddhist religion is one of the world's most peaceful religion. People are always calm and quiet, and so does their religious places. This place is free from any crowds. Inside there, most of the people talks in a low voice (or you should say modest).
After entering inside the main premise through the gate, you can find two temples there. One is having a large statue of the Buddha. And the other one is having two statues (local people say this as the statue of Bhante of Rangamati Bihar (ভান্তে, রাঙামাটি বিহার), and who died recently). In between the two temples, there is a small field like place available which is shaded by a medium sized tree.

Shombhu Chand Thakur was one of the most famous monk in these arena. His temple was established in 1126 Bangla Era, but restructured and renovated in 1376 BE (Bangla Era). Everyday many people come to this temple and pray to fulfill their heart’s desire.
People of Hindu Religion come here to vow or promise something. And for the fulfillment of a desire, they worship through offering to a deity (or leaving food taken by a superior), money, flower (china-rose) etc. inside an earthen cup and place it in the root of the tree behind the temple to conclude their worshipping.
The Ashram has been renovated in recent times. However, in the last century, around the period 1990s, there was a moth made with old narrow bricks in the bank of Narad River, just south of the Ashram premises.
