What are those unwritten rules? Things like caring for each other, helping each other, respecting each other— that is what had built this society so strong. You guys have done a tremendous job in making this community a better place and that is why we’re here today to recognise your contribution,” Prashad noted.Manzoor Rahaman, another member of the EANY, echoed similar sentiments, noting that the Association is pleased to be of service to members of the community.last_img read more
