বঙ্গানুবাদ : 


সুরাইয়া বেগম একজন অবসরপ্রাপ্ত স্কুল শিক্ষক। তিনি একজন বিধবা এবং একাকী বাস করেন। তার স্বামী তিন বছর আগে মারা গেছেন। তার দুই মেয়ে বিবাহিত এবং তারা তাদের পরিবারের সাথে ঢাকায় বাস করে। তারা তার সাথে টেলিফোনে কথা বলে এবং যখন সময় পায় তখন তার সাথে দেখা করতে আসে।
সুরাইয়া বেগমের  অনেক অবসর সময় আছে। তিনি গল্পের বই পড়ে, টেলিভিশন দেখে এবং বন্ধু বান্ধবী ও স্বজনদের সাথে দেখা করে তার সময় ব্যয় করেন । মাঝে মাঝে তিনি তার পুরনো সহকর্মীদের চিঠি লেখেন। কিন্তু ইদানিং প্রায়ই তিনি এসব কিছু করে বিরক্ত হন। তিনি এমন কিছু করতে চান যা  আরো অর্থপূর্ণ এবং যা অন্যদের কল্যাণ করবে। তিনি তার এলাকাতে একটি বৃদ্ধ নিবাস স্থাপন করার পরিকল্পনা করছেন । তিনি কিছু বয়স্ক মানুষদের চেনেন যারা একা বাস করেন। তাদের দেখাশুনা করার কেউ নেই। তারা প্রায়ই অসহায় ও যন্ত্রণাক্লিষ্ট অনুভব করেন। তাদের যতœ ও সমর্থন প্রয়োজন।

Their mother was cooking something in the pot. The children were hungry and they were crying for food. "What are you cooking?" the Caliph asked. The woman looked at his face helplessly and did not say anything. Then the Caliph found out that there was no food inside the pot. She was just boiling water. He was very sorry.
