Aruail is a remote union in Sarail upazila of Brahmanbaria surrounded by rivers. About 45,000 people live in this union located on the banks of the river Titas. Boats or banana rafts are their means of transportation during the monsoon floods. The rest of the time, their constant companions on foot. Asif Iqbal Khukan, a teacher of this union, is working in the service of humanity in such a variety of life. He has been engaged in humanitarian service for almost 10 years. He has gained wide acquaintance and love through his work. Asif Iqbal Khukan is working as a teacher in Aruail Government Primary School.

He has extended his helping hands to the poor of the area. This relentless man comes forward to solve any problem. He is helping the unconscious people of the village by running the Union Parishad to preparing the necessary paper along with the form fillup to register the birth. This self-denying person has been cooperating with new voters, transferring and correcting them by preparing the necessary papers including form film to make a new voter ID card. The Rajapur Kakaria village of Saral has provided sewing machines to many helpless fisher families through the Upazila Fisheries Office. Beyond all kinds of greed, he has been providing this service without any interest.

During this difficult coronavirus pandemic period, this man not only extends his helping hands but also encouraged people to wear face masks and maintaining health guidelines while going out of the home. 

He is inspiring the villagers in various ways to create health awareness. He also provided free-of-cost registration services for the extremely poor and helpless people who are not interested in getting the corona vaccine. Following his such kinds of initiative, the people of the village are now becoming much more aware. This exceptional initiative in this difficult time of coronavirus pandemic undoubtedly deserves praise.

Teacher Asif Iqbal Khukan said, "People are for people, the world is for a short time. When people's suffering is over, I get peace. I get the love of people, this is my peace. I want to work for the people till death."
