About me/পরিচিতি

About me:
Two quotes summarize me best-
1. "I am not a citizen of Athens or Greece, but of the world."
2. �I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.�
-Edward Everett Hale
