While we were busy setting off fireworks to welcome the new year, these dumb creatures left their homes for fear of death and came to take shelter in my house. The sound of fireworks and sparks all around. The lantern is flying and falling on the tree. The sparks of fire are falling on the leaves. Frightened, he had to go out to seek refuge this night. I turned off all the lights in the house, turned on the stairs and took them out of the house. I had already opened all the windows of the stairs. Because, there were many more on the stairs. But, I was surprised to see that even after leaving the house, all the stairs were gathered in different places. Not a single window is going out. Frightened. Went to the roof to see the New Year celebrations. To see lanterns and fireworks in the sky. But, as soon as I got out of the roof and returned home, I felt bad. Our joys are joy, until it becomes fear / sorrow / panic of others. Let us try to keep our own joy without wasting the joy of all creation. We are the best creatures of creation. Ashraful Makhlukat. Shouldn’t we consider the security of all other creations? ’]
