Bid You Adieu 2016

With the setting sun today in the western horizon according to the Gregorian Calendar the year 2016 will be lost in ocean of time. History may repeat but the time will never come back again, it can never be rewind. The system introducing the Gregorian calendar has been started since 1582 in western countries of arranging the months in the year and the days in the months and of counting the years from the birth of Jesus Christ. However time lost, will never come back again.
During the year 2016 so many remarkable happenings occurred in our
national life, international arena, such as in the politics outstanding
performances in games & sports, earthquakes, inhuman migration so
to say trading on human beings from different areas of the world,
terrorist activities around the world, ruthless killings at Holely Artizan at
Gulshan in Dhaka on July 1, 2016 of nineteen lively young innocent
youths including Faraz who stirred the conscience of the human beings
sacrificing his own life for the sake of his two other friends. This is a
unique event of history in defiance of love for one’s own life. In the
arena of football, cricket our girls made spectacular achievements, our
young cricketers did something splendid beating big many veterans including the England, Pakistan, West Indies, India, South Africa, Australian team. Our Sakib-al Hasan, Mustafijur Rahman Fizz, Tamim Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah Riad to their credit proved themselves to be the ace player in the cricket word. Mustafijur clinched title of ICC title of the potential player of the year.Above all we can not but mention the name of our unsung hero Mashrafi-bin- murtaza, undaunted, indomitable, courageous personality who never bow down either to injury or tojoy or sorrow. Our girls Mabia Akhter Simanta eeobtained the gold medal in the weight lifting event in South Asian Games & Mahfuza Khatun Shila achieved the twogold medals in swimming competition. While everybody was in cheers ,shouting at the top of their voice in her support &achievements of Mabia was in tearsfor the glory she attained. We have noteworthy Everest conquers heroines like Wasfia Nazreen& Nishat Mozumder.The land where such girls are born there the women folk need not to fight for the establish their rights & their share of the loaves in the functioning of the state. We have so many remarkable & marvelous achievements in our national life that we cantake pride. Yet we shall have to go along way. We shall have to reassure our national pledge to restore our constitutional vow in accordance with the four principle like Democracy, Socialism, Secularism & Nationality. No development is
tangible until it is based on solid foundation & equal distribution of wealth.
However, so many remarkable events took place during 2016 both inside & outside the country, everything cannot made to be possible to accommodate here within this short space. Series of JMB sponsored terrorist activities have been carried out wherein some few hundred human lives been massacred. Some more than 10 billion US$ dollar have been taken out from the central bank of Bangladesh over electronic/digital fraud which could not yet been realized. Few hundred crores of money have been taken away by the corrupt & so-called naughty businessmen surreptitiously in connivance of some dishonest bank officials. Besides, historical visit of Chinese Prime Minister in October in Bangladesh has opened a new vista of cooperation & warm relationship between the two countries. The torture, oppression, persecution on plea of ethnical cleansing perpetuated to the Rohingas at the Bangladesh- Myanmar border will remain in the history as the perpetual crime to the civilized world. Bangladesh has signed an agreement with Russia to produce 2400 mega watt at a cost of 62’65 billion dollar worth project. Thus Bangladesh has stepped into the age of atomic power. All these achievement has been besmeared with the black ink over the red carpet when we hear harrowing cry story, sobbing eyes & crying tales of the minority community of Nasirnagar & Santals of Gobindagonj.
In the international scenario also there took place so many changes. Donald Trump elected the President of USA much against the hopes & aspiration of the Americans. The arch rival of the Americans and immediate just before his death the staunch rival of Americans ,the legendry leader like Fidel Castro died at the age of 90. Former Prime Minister of Portugal has been selected to be the new Secretary General of UNO. Indo- Pak borders are again passing through tense situation as it was since their birth. So long these two states exist the hit -and –run, guerrilla warfare, combat &skirmishes will continue to go unabated.
