Why are so many citizens invisible to state law?

It is the responsibility of the state to register the birth of its citizens. The Bangladesh government has made significant strides in this regard. However, according to the latest census, over 17 percent of the population still does not have a birth certificate. This translates to approximately 29.2 million people without birth registration. Such information was revealed in a socio-economic demographic survey conducted by the Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics (BBS) last Wednesday (June 12).

Natural gene bank Halda river should be kept pollution free

The Halda River, flowing over the districts of Khagrachari and Chittagong, is highly significant for several reasons. The main reason is that every year, the river witnesses abundant spawning of species such as Rui, Katla, Mrigel, Kalibaus, and Carp fish. Halda is the only tidal river in the world from where a significant amount of spawn from Rui and Carp species is collected. No other tidal river on Earth allows for the collection of spawn from Rui species.

Government allocation for education should be increased

Education is considered as a cornerstone for the development of civilization and the enhancement of human resources. Therefore, in order to establish a consensus-based education system in advanced countries, their governments are compelled to increase expenditure in this sector. In our country, the government is also striving to bring about qualitative changes, including increasing expenditure in this sector, with the aim of ensuring a consensus-based education system. However, due to various problems and crises, including insufficient allocation in the government budget for education, the desired goals in the country's education system have not yet been achieved.

Why do cities flood whenever it rains

Previously, newspaper headlines would read: "Chittagong submerged after a day's rain," "Sylhet city flooded after a night's rain," "Dhaka city inundated after a day's continuous rain." Now, it doesn't even take a whole day of rain. An hour of rainfall is enough to flood the cities. This year, the monsoon hasn't even started in full force. Yet, with the occasional rain we’ve had, reports of flooding in the three major cities have already come in.

Govt needs to be more stringent in preventing child marriage

If the rate of child marriage remains at 50 percent in a country even after two decades of the twenty-first century, it is undoubtedly a matter of great shame for that nation. Child marriage clearly highlights numerous negative aspects such as education, health, poverty, dowry, social customs, and religious and social pressures within a country. If child marriage in a country decreases by only 2 percent each year, it is even more alarming. This is the case in Bangladesh. At this rate, it could take Bangladesh 215 years to eliminate child marriage. The question is, will Bangladesh wait 215 years, or will it take stricter measures to prevent child marriage?

Create technology-dependent job sectors in the country

Over the last two decades, the alarming increase in the number of talented students leaving the country has been a matter of concern. Numerous articles have been published in newspapers and magazines on this issue. Primarily, talented graduates and students are compelled to leave the country due to the lack of desired employment opportunities. Abroad, they often struggle to find any job with reasonable assurance of security. While this may bring some remittances to the country, the emigration of talented individuals remains worrisome for Bangladesh.
