Translation from Himu's- উদ্ধারকাজে নিজস্ব প্রযুক্তি ও কৌশল উদ্ভাবন আশু প্রয়োজন

The collapse of Rana Plaza has engraved a lasting sore in our mind but it’s quite urgent to think about the immediate reaction if such happens again. The policymakers urgently need to start their homework that what and how we react in such incidences. And if we know from the professional and volunteer rescuers about their experiences and limitations through public hearing, can be incorporated in this homework.

“Workers of the world, Unite.”
Ahh, the chanting that Marx started.
You know, I got the chance to meet Marx? I guess not. I did not know much about him before I met him.
Well, I don’t know whether you can hear me or not. It’s not the usual way to talk, not been preferred. Actually, it’s illegal.

It was how it usually looked like, all quiet from the outside. Although the windows and doors of the Doulatpur Brajalal College were all shut tight, there was a peacefulness in that silence. Looking at the tall grass that had grown into a waist-high jungle, and the cattle sitting in the shades of the trees under the winter sun, one could hardly realize that the country was flooding in a blood-bath. If you listened carefully in all this silence, you could even hear the echo of the warmth of life going on from the nearby bazaar. It wasn't impossible to hear the strangely grave sounds of the rising tide inside the people, like that of the long dried up river, The Bhairab.

Let us face the fact- there was a huge turnout at the long march/procession/meeting held by the Hefajat-E-Islami. However, the question is- should we be surprised or frightened? Not really. I think that the path the political parties chose since the independence of Bangladesh has made the emergence and growth of this counter-force inevitable.
