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.

Save environment and humanity, protect biodiversity

As global warming caused by climate change increases, sea levels rise, and the environment faces unprecedented crises, Bangladesh's environment is suffering the most. In the name of development, forests and hills are being destroyed. Rivers and canals are being filled. Factories and brick kilns are springing up everywhere. Paved roads are being constructed through water bodies. Even the Sundarbans are not being spared from the ravages of development. Yet, it is the Sundarbans that protect Bangladesh from cyclones.

Control inflation

From the first budget of Bangladesh to the last fiscal year, it can be observed that the size of each budget has increased over time. According to economists, although the amount of money in the budget has increased, the budget has not expanded in proportion to the economy. However, after 53 years, there are questions about how much of the expectations regarding the budget are being implimented.

Regulate the market system rigorously

For several years, the prices of goods have been rising uncontrollably in almost every country. Under the pressure of inflation, people in various countries, especially in poorer ones, are now bewildered. Moreover, the official inflation figures reported in different countries are believed to be even higher in reality. The question is, where will this ongoing inflation lead? Will commodity prices continue to rise? Historically, when inflation exceeds 9 percent, it may take several years for it to stabilize. Bangladesh seems to be heading in that direction, which is very concerning.
