When Corowa resident Biswajiti Roy was living in Bangladesh, he thought a lot about our country.
“Since I became interested in Australia I wanted to move here and becoming an Australian just followed,” he told the Free Press.
Biswajiti, his wife Bharati Rani Adhikara and 10-year-old son Arjyashrestho who is in year five at Corowa Public School, moved to Corowa in 2012, after spending one month in Adelaide having arrived from Bangladesh.
An Australian Citizenship Ceremony was conducted by Federation Council Administrator Mike Eden (pictured with the family) at council’s monthly meeting on November 15, in the Corowa Civic Centre.
“It’s a beautiful area to live. We really love this area. There are big cities close by,” Biswajiti, a doctor in Rutherglen, said.
He likes fishing and at age 41, could still be snapped up for cricket.
