Let Boishakh come upon us with the spirit of revolt
This year we will celebrate Pohela Boishakh with the expectation ofexemplary punishment of Nusrat`s killers for their unimaginable atrocity. No other girl has to suffer the similar fate like Nusrat and this should be this year`s promise. Our expectations, Pohela Boishakh of this year would come with the assurance of justice.
Road accidents are not decreasing
Take action to control the speed of the vehicles.
Drivers` reckless attitude is largely responsible for the accidents happening in the country every day. At least 15 people have been killed throughout the country only on last Friday. And the most alarming thing is the drivers and transport owners have no remorse for these unbridled deaths. As long as there is a reckless attitude among the drivers, the road accidents cannot be reduced. We hope that the concerned authorities will think about these issues and take proper action.
Being a Bengali is not easy
Serajul Islam Choudhury
Our history simultaneously contains slavery and rebellion and both of them are true. What we would accept from these two facts entirely depend on our personality. In this case it can be said, we should carry out identity along with courage, resistance, bravery and revolution. We will reject the feudalism and narrow-mindedness of our heritage and will move forward with its democratic and life-oriented side.
Day of emergence with new pleasures
Although the country`s economic development surpasses the near-past, there are still many poor living below the poverty line. The government and the lucky ones can arrange some gifts for them on the eve of Pahela Baishakh. Our identity is still limited to Muslims, Hindus, Christians, Buddhists, ethnic groups etc. But it will not be too difficult to observe the arrival of Bengali year regardless of class, religion and social status.
Siraj`s wife withdraws Tk 18 lac from his bank account
Just a day after the arrest of Sonagazi Islamia Senior Fazil Madrasa principal Siraj-ud-Daula on sexual harassment case filed by Nusrat Jahan Rafi`s mother, his wife withdraws Tk 18 lac from his Janata Bank Sonagazi branch account. The money was given to the killers to carry out movement demanding release of Siraj and to murder Rafi.
Bring messages of peace and prosperity
Because of the Boishakhi fair, the rural economy faces regeneration every year. Its role in patronizing indigenous handicrafts is undeniable. This industry is playing a role in the expansion of small business and creating new jobs. These activities are adding new dimensions to our economy and culture. We hope that Bengali new year will bring peace and prosperity.
Teaching at risky buildings
Children`s safety should be ensured
Students are attending classes at over 9,500 risky primary schools across the country. As children are the future of the nation, it is very important to ensure risk-free educational institutions for them. For this reason, schools and surrounding areas will be risk-free and secure at any cost. In view of at least the future of the country, taking action against irregularities in the construction of school buildings as well as measures to eliminate the risks of risky schools should be taken promptly.
Invitation of Baishakh
Amit Roy Chowdhury
New Year is the finest day for Bangalis, which is basically a social and cultural festival. There is no shortage of effort and initiative from the state to restore the traditions of Bengal culture. Baishakh is not just a month; it`s a motivation, a unique feeling, a different life, and an exhibition of incredible self-power. Baishakh is the reflection of goodness, and well-being. So, the periphery of this festival is not limited.
Sing songs without fear
In every Baishakh, we pray for a rich-developed-proud Bangladesh. We want to overcome communalism-bigotry, violence and hatred towards women through our courage, good sense and conscience. There have been many obstacles on our way but we want to move forward ignoring all unwanted hazards. We wish that Bangladesh will overcome every darkness that will obstruct its way.
The cultural movement in national life has not only changed the trend of culture, but it has influenced the political environment and its nature. besides, its influence has been noticeable in the case of democratic nationalism, modernity and progressiveness.Traditional and culturally relevant practices of tradition and modernity are so important in our healthy, progressive national life.
Economy of Baishakh
Altaf Hossain Russell
Recently, many economists of Bangladesh are considering the celebration of Baishak as the wind to the economy. Many old festivals related to the Nabobarsho have been abolished with the passage of time, and there have been many new festivals. In addition to the cultural movement, the Pahela Baishakh added a new dimension to the political movement also. It is our wish that the trade and economy will not take an aggressive form during this festival.

Economic picture of Bangladesh hundred years ago
It is not acceptable to see Bangladesh sitting idle and helpless among the world while we are blessed with various industries. The foreign merchants and local craftsmen must not be blamed. The fault lies in the nation’s dependable mentality.
