News report on eve-teasing in your locality.

Eve-teasing in Mymensingh

Kamrul Islam, Mymensingh, 10 January:
In Mymensingh town, eve-teasing has become a common incident. It happens in buses, shopping arcades, cinema halls, shopping malls, restaurants, railway station, bus terminals and every other place, but the places where it happens with an alarming frequency on the ways to schools and colleges.

Some young boys and youths in this town always tease the college going girls on their way to college and back home. A sly whistle, a wink, a lingering look, a vulgar stare, a well-timed clap, a seemingly casual touch at vulnerable time, the humming of a song, cheap gestures—all these are typical examples of eve-teasing.

Sometimes, they utter very objectionable words against the girls. Sometimes they throw pieces of paper and flowers at them. On those pieces of papers, they write names of some girls proposing for marriage. These culprits sometimes spit at them and laugh at them and even stand on their way to college obstructing their movement.

In such a difficult situation, the girls feel insecure to go to college and back home. Some girls have already stopped going to college for fear of any mishap. Many girls suffer from mental agonies which they cannot share with anybody.

The parents of the girls expect that the government will take stern action against the culprits and deploy police at different points on the way to schools and colleges to catch the culprits red handed.

News report on the rise of prices of essentials commodities in markets.

Price-hike of essential commodities

Kamrul Islam, Mymensing, 25 August:
Recently the prices of essentials especially rice, groceries, and vegetables have gone up beyond the purchasing capacity of the common people.

The soaring price hike has already made the life of people intolerably difficult. No one knows what their budget will be in the next month or week.

The shop keepers give lame excuses for this price hike. In fact, the syndicates or the hoarders are deliberately creating this nuisance. If the situation continues, the people of low income group will not be able to buy their daily necessaries and undergo untold sufferings.

However, strict measures should be taken by the government to curb the hoarders' ill motive which creates artificial crisis of essentials commodities.

The common people expect that the authority concerned will look into the matter and take strict measures to keep the prices of essential commodities under control.

News report on gender discrimination in Pakistan.

Gender discrimination in Pakistan

Kamrul Islam, Lahore, 25 August:
In modern time gender discrimination is not accepted at all. It creates hindrance on the path of development of any country.

However, gender discrimination begins at birth in Pakistan and women are the worst sufferers of it. There are many reasons behind this gender discrimination in Pakistan. One of the main reasons is that most parents want to have children so that they can supplement their family income and help with the household chores.

In the existing socio-economic set up of our country, male children are very useful for this purpose. So, girls are born in an unwelcome world. They grow up in an unwelcome situation and they are confined to domestic chores. They are deprived of the light of education and their social rights and basic needs. Besides, the parents in Pakistan believe that their main task in life is to prepare their daughter for marriage and child bearing.

This outlook of the parents of Pakistan should be changed. They should be given to understand that there is no difference between a boy and a girl child. So, they should be treated equally. The parents of Pakistan also should bear in mind that girls can do what boys can do in this modern world.

In fact, if their girls are educated and equally treated, they can possibly do much better than their male children.

Power cut increases in Mymensingh

Kamrul Islam, Mymensing, September 20:
Electricity is the driving force of modern civilization. But it has become a nuisance for the city dwellers of Mymensingh. Load-shedding occurs every now and then in the town.

At office hours it remains off. At night, the whole town is plunged into darkness. As a result, criminals take advantage of the darkness.

Locals complain that electricity nowadays remains by chance. Businessmen of the town inform us that they are facing heavy loss as they cannot run their business smoothly due to load-shedding. It also disturbs the study of the students. One of the students of Mymensingh Zilla School says "Our test exam is knocking at the door but I can’t take preparation well because of frequent power cut."

The authority concerned should take necessary measures to lessen the sufferings of the people of Mymensingh. Besides, awareness must be raised among the people to prevent the misuse of electricity.

News report on the negative impact of western culture.

Negative impact of western culture

Kamrul Islam, Mymensingh, September 25:
It is unfortunate that the western culture is taking roots in our culture and destroying our own culture, society and young generation gradually.

Today it is greatly influencing our young generation. Our young generation is now fond of western music, dresses and modes of life. They are forgetting our own culture. An interview among a group of 100 people aged 20-30 shows that the western culture telecast on different channels is leaving serious negative impact on our young generation.

As a result, they are drifting away from our own culture, music, entertainment and modes of life. Instead, they are following western modes of life. Besides, they are becoming aggressive watching western violent movies and fighting. Under the influence of the western culture, our own culture is being devalued and losing its appeal to the young generation.

So, effective measures should be taken in this regard to preserve our own culture and to save our young generation.

News report on traffic jam in your locality.

Severe traffic jam at Jatrabari

Kamrul Islam, Dhaka, January 25:
The problem of traffic jam has become acute at Jatrabari in Dhaka. It becomes intolerable especially during the time of beginning of the schools, colleges and universities.

It happens when different vehicles especially rickshaws want to move ahead of each other. The construction work of flyover and violation of traffic rules are some other reasons of traffic jam in this locality.

People especially the service holders and students feel very helpless and they become frustrated when they get stuck in a traffic jam. Many people fail to attend their office in time. The worst victims are the patients carried in the ambulances to the hospitals and clinics. Rickshaw pullers also suffer a lot because they lose their valuable time moving very slowly towards their destination.

Following the traffic rules, reducing the number of rickshaws and above all growing public awareness are necessary for solving the problem of traffic jam.

The dwellers of this locality expect that the government and other authorities concerned would come forward immediately to solve this problem.

Kamrul Islam, Dhaka, February 25:
About five lakh people lead inhuman life in different slums around the capital. The number of slum dwellers is increasing day by day.

When asked Nur Islam, from Kamlapur slum said that they had been suffering from various problems. They have no facility of pure drinking water, electricity, sewerage system. They pass their days amidst severe heat, biting cold and heavy rainfall. They live from hand to mouth.

Jarina Begum of Agargaon slum said that she and some of her neighbors were the victims of sexual repression. The local miscreants torture them. The criminals use the slums for taking drugs, selling drugs and doing other antisocial activities.

Most of the slum dwellers are rickshaw pullers, day labourers, hawkers etc. They are deprived of basic needs. There are no education facilities and treatment facilities for their children. So, the ways of their living are very miserable.

Proper steps should be taken by the government in this regard to minimize their sufferings.
