Explain why you chose your blog’s title and what it means to you.

I was twelve years old when my Dad passed away. It was a sad time for us. I wasn’t able to show my dad how much I loved him. Although he is no longer with us, it gives me great pleasure to choose my blog’s title,”Sabethville”, my Dad’s name was Abdus Sabeth. He was a great inspiration to us,he worked day and night to provide us a comfortable home and the best education.

He told my mother once, a child’s education is like a foundation of a building, just as any building with a good foundation would last a long time, so will a child’s education with a good foundation bring increasing benefits. He tried his best to see us thrive. With this in mind he registered us in the best schools in the city.

My blog title makes me very proud that I was able to use my Dad’s name.

It means a lot to me when I  publish posts and read the comments of my blogger friends. I have a few dedicated friends who take the time to read my post and leave their awesome comments. I  thank them  for their positive words.

Somewhere up there my Dad is probably thinking, “I am so happy, Ranu did not neglect her education!”

365 Writing Prompt: All About You

Explain why you chose your blog’s title and what it means to you.

When I decided to start blogging , I thought the best way to remember my father is to name it, “Sabethville.” My Dad’s name was “Abdus Sabeth.”

He  worked hard to raise us, he loved us and was always interested to give us a  good education.

He once told my mother, the best way to educate a child is  by registering them in a school which gives quality education to the kids. It’s like a building he said the better the foundation, the better it will be for it to withstand the test of time.

We were given the opportunity to study in a school where they had dedicated teachers who cared about our education, even though my father had to pay ten times more in tuition fees compared to the other schools, it did not bother him. I think we the siblings did okay.
