" Please, amma" let me go. Suzon pleaded.

Amma just bit her lip. Didn't say anything. How could she let her youngest child join the war? He was only 17. But he kept on pleading. He insisted on going, since his elder brothers also joined the war.

" Okay, beta,' said Amma. " I sacrifice you for the sake of our country. Go."

He jumped with joy, packed his bags, said goodbye to everyone and set off to join the muktibahini...................................................

(Word meanings: Amma= mum, mother.
Beta= son, muktibahini=freedom fighters.)

One correction, it's Sujon, not Suzon. I found writing it a bit difficult, I have to research a lot.
