Rape -1A mass rape incident on a bus in Delhi shatters the country. The girl was raped and his boy friend was beaten and both of them were thrown out of the bus. The girl was treated in hospital at home and in Singapore. But she succumbed to death due to grave injury inflicted on her. The incident jolt the whole country. The women folks came down to streets in great number in Delhi and in other parts of the country.

When all people were absorbed with the news in Delhi, many rape incidents continue to occur in Bangladesh. So, many of them is similar or more critical than the Delhi accident.

But reaction in the streets in Bangladesh is minimal. Many of the offenders were arrested, but people do not feel confident about what punishment is waiting for them. Some of them would able to bypass the law, some may even not arrested.

Measuring the success of a man November 27, 2009

The subject is always confusing to me.

I dearly knew a man who was a successful industrialist, a pioneer entrepreneur with a brilliant academic accomplishment who maintained a nice family so far, the wife herself a professional and children completed or on the way of completion successful academic career, suddenly this man separated from his family and prefered to maintain a separate personal life. I had an impression that this man was a successful man. But I couldn’t continue the notion as his family life is suddenly shattered.

How do you measure the success of a man? By his academic accomplishment? In Bangladesh, you will get many academicans are in frustration as the academic persuit in most of the cases kept them away from economic fulfilment. By financial achievment? People will envy you but wouldn’t like you. If you have poor academic background, that weakness will haunt you always. By your professional identity? Profession alone will not satisfy your inner urge of fulfilment. That’s why a doctor adopts unehical means to earn money; an engineer corrupts himelf to be rich.

What is in the end of life if your family is shattered for lapses in your character after you gain success in your profession? A peaceful family is also equally important for the feeling of success in life.

How do you relate your success in respect to the achievement of your children? What would be your feeling if they can’t fulfil your minimum expections? If they derailed in the midst of the abundance of money, how will you then measure your success? In our culture and society, children are part of our self. Their success contributes to a part of our success. If they fails, that’s a failure on our part also.

A man would be considered a complete success if he only could achieve success in all avenues of life. But in our experience we see virtually no man who is a complete success. Those whom we consider successful are outwardly successful, but in their inner life, you will find many of them, specially if you know them from close, are unhapppy man.

Probably this incompleteness is the mystery of life
to make man understand the smallness of his being in this world.
