Children Found in Jhitka Bzar Manikgonj

Need your urgent sincere help to find out this boy’s parents. Could you please share this with as many friends as you can in any media? This cute boy of about 8 or 9 years was found on the way to Jhitka Bazar in Manikgonj in a sunny morning on 11 November 2011 Saturday. He can’t talk properly. Even if he can produce a word or two with his utmost effort those are not Bengali and the language can’t be understood.  He is now under the mercy of a family of the village Jagaddiya, Malchi, Aroa, Shibalaya, Manikjang. While having an outing at Jhitka in Manikgonj we came across this boy and the great family who has taken the trouble to look after this boy. They requested us to help them finding out this boy’s parents. We have the phone number and address of that family. Let’s work together with our sincere efforts and affection to help this boy finding out his parents and stop their heart-rending cry of grief. This will be certainly a good work for humanity. May God bless us all.

No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true. – Steve Jobs

People’s takes risky Journey for Celebrate Eid-ul-Azha in Bangladesh

I was their around 6.30 am. on the Dhaka airport train station to cover the people’s train journey on upcoming Eid Holidays. Thousands of home bound people left Dhaka and to go to their village town celebrating Eid with their loved ones.  Yes, it wills an amazing to see when train arrives on the station. I stand on the foot over bridge to take photos and observe the whole situation.

 At that time one of train passenger came to me and asked, Are you journalist and said , I came here yesterday at  6.00 pm. to go to my home town in Lal Monirhat but my train is not to coming on time and authority said, It will possible to come around at 8.00 or 9.00 am these morning ! I am just waiting for long time and spend 200 tk. for my food; I spent one night on the station platform and fall sick.

I looked him and pay attention his problem but not to find any solution. I think this is our system every Eid holidays home bound people are regularly facing these problem.  Atik Hossain  work in a garments factory in the Dhaka city, he also said, I don’t have any ticket yet, my train name Rangpur Express, maybe I will try to ride on the train roof, I know it’s a risky journey but I don’t have any other way.

I am really pained at heart to read today’s news paper Eight people  died falling off the roof of running trains in Tangail and Bogra district on Friday night and yesterday. But people are not to pay much attention and not to bother about the news. I think people really mad to go their village any way. But the painful news is that every year home bound people take these risks by train, launch and bus journey and is in occurred an accident.

However, when the train arrives in the station, it’s already overcrowded look like a human sea. Within a few minutes people rush on the train and agitate each other to boarding on the train. Finally they are happy to go to their home to take a risky journey on the train roof. I hope to safe their journey and to celebrate the Eid-al-Azha with their loved ones.
