Ragib Ali, a leading industrialist, banker, a philanthropist of Bangladesh, has been acclaimed as Danobir Ragib Ali. This title, a spontaneous expression of the love and respect of the people for this personality who is dedicated to the social and national welfare, is a reflection of the hearty recognition of the mass people and the intellectual community irrespective of cultural differences and political affiliations. Thanks to Ragib Ali that he could bring all to a common platform to offer their best wishes to one, who sacrificed his life to uphold the causes of the mass and uplift the lot of the people of  Sylhet, and in the national perspective - Bangladesh.

The book is a successful presentation and focuses   on the contribution of Danobir Ragib Ali and his appreciation and honour in the reception. It  throws light  on the love and respect of the people of Sylhet.
This book, it is believed, will help people outside Sylhet to know Ragib Ali more closely and appreciate his works by heart. This may also introduce Ragib Ali nationally as a 'man engaged in the services of humanity.'
