If you would attempt to ask this Bangladesh-grown fisherfolk about his life story twenty years ago and how much it affected his current lifestyle, I bet you would end up crying and questioning the course of the grand design. If you come to think of it, Hashmot Ali from the southern portion of this Muslim-Buddhist-Hindu populated country is just a normal person who is pursuing ways for their survival--with honor and fairness.
But fate is not too friendly and compatible for him, at least because of what the universe did to his face. But seriously, it's a major life shift for them to think more complex for a steadfast recovery and to continue living. He was beaten by a tiger at his very vulnerable state, while he and his colleagues were sleeping in a boat steadily settling in a forest canal.
Such circumstance was a very difficult case to handle. After a long while, Hashmot was recovered physically, and he just recently showed to the world his new life stage. Well, there's more than that.
Let's see how he's going. Read ahead and immerse yourself in this roller-coaster experience.
Hashmot was just very unfortunate to be the main target or prey of this either hungry or painfully playful tiger which habitat covers where they've settled for a definite period.
They attack people every now and then in peaceful villages near their territories. But we cannot blame the animal as it is the human population that is to be blamed.
Tiger 'dragged' its sharp-tipped claws to the 40-year old man, paired with fierce movements and a strong commitment to shred and tear skin and flesh. As far as Hashmot remembered, as soon as he felt the pain and scare from the detrimental creature, he screamed so loud and has caught the attention of his co-farmers. Luckily, Hashmot's co-fisherfolks responded quickly and he was dragged away from the prey.
What happened next was a genuine struggle for all involed.
Traveling six hours to reach the hospital was not a joke at all. The transportation and all the reactions coming from Hashmot made clear that it's a life-and-death situation. Upon arrival, the medical practitioners advised that the treatment for then 20-year-old cannot save his face.
In addition, village people either bully him, got scared of him or humiliate him in any form. He stopped establishing and continuing interactions among the people in the society where he lives in. After decades of enduring batches of emotional stress, he decided to get real and to show the world what he really is.
Obviously, it's deformed and almost half of his face was consumed by a flesh-eater. He accepted this fact but he's still worried about the future of his offsprings, especially his daughter who will soon get married or settle with a marital partner. At this point in time, he just wishes that somebody who has a warm, kind heart get the news and give him a break he deserves--a plastic surgery ladies and gentlemen!
Best of luck, Hashmot.
