This is my very first entry on this forum and l ask for forgiveness if my grammar or format of writing leave anything to be desired ( As l write more , l will hopefully improve in time ) . While l studied English at school ever since l was a little boy ( English was a mandatory subject in most private schools in India at the time of my childhood ) and frequently speak it both in Bangladesh and foreign countries with acceptable proficiency , it is not my first language . In my life , l have killed 81 leopards till now . Out of these 81 leopards , 69 of them were killed prior to 1972 in the Syedabaad tea estate in India ( West Bengal ) . Here is a Bangladeshi newspaper article written in 1985 , which detailed my actions ( fortunately in a positive light and not in the negative misguided tone which is so common today , among left wing media worldwide ) . At the time , l had killed my 73rd leopard. I should also add here that unless otherwise stated , l own every photograph which l will be posting here , henceforth . From the next post onwards , l will provide an account of the very first leopard which l had shot in 1963 , when l was 16 years old . I hope that you all will like the story .And if this story is well received , then l will write a few more accordingly once every few days.
