AC + DC

প্রথমেই বলে রাখি যে এটি আমার লেখা নয়। লেখকের নামও জানি না। এটা এসেছিল আমার এক বন্ধুর কাছ থেকে whatsapp এর মাধ্যমে - পড়ে এত ভাল লাগল যে হুবহু এখানে দিয়ে দিলাম (যাকে আজকের দিনে বলে কপি পেস্ট)। আর কথা না বাড়িয়ে এইবার এই লেখাটার আনন্দ নিন: ================================================================ সেই গপ্পোটা হয়তো শুনেছেন। খেঁকুরে অধ্যাপকের "বল… Continue reading AC + DC
