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.
