Furthermore, his literary corpus includes 19 novels, 127 short stories, 79 essays, critiques, discussions, and personal writings, along with 56 diaries spanning over 4,000 pages, and a collection of around 1500 letters and correspondences.

Problem lies in Myanmar, victim is Bangladesh!

Hearing screams and cries of people outside, you opened the door and find some armed men trying to kill some innocent people. They plead for your assistance, asking for water and seeking refuge. In this moment, what will you do? If you are extremely selfish and merciless, you will close the door and stay inside, playing music loudly so you can't hear the cries of the distressed people outside. However, if you are humane, you will provide food and water to those desperate individuals, offer them shelter, and provide assistance to help them survive.

Despite fear of burning, private medical facilities should be brought within reach

A child named Ayan has returned from the hospital as a lifeless body after undergoing circumcision. It is impossible for us to comprehend the feelings of his parents. On December 31, Ayaan was taken to the United Medical College Hospital in the capital, Badda, for circumcision. There, without the parents' consent, the child is circumcised by a doctor using full general anesthesia. After the circumcision is completed, Ayan is not brought back to consciousness at that place and is sent to Gulshan-2 United Hospital.

Speculation of Opposition Party in the National Parliament

Since the ninth national parliamentary election held in 2008, a weak opposition party has been forming in the Bangladesh National Parliament, which is likely to become the weakest this time. In the 2008 election, the opposition party, BNP, had only 30 seats. After that, in the 2014 election, they secured 34 seats, simultaneously being in both the government and the opposition as the Jatiya Party took the chair of the opposition. BNP faced a setback in that election. In the 2018 election, with 22 seats, Jatiya party once again took their place in the opposition party in the National Parliament.
