Last week’s spotlight titled ‘The Youth and Savar: It’s Time to Bring a Change’ was a well written spotlight. The writer has focused on a number of issues like disaster management and how to cope with post-disaster effects. The youth of the country has proved to be the brave soldiers, time and again. We have seen them come to the rescue of others in times of need. The Savar tragedy, in particular, involved a lot of youth activity. Not only did young people contribute to saving the lives of those trapped under the rubbles of the collapsed buildings but young entrepreneurs also contributed by providing funds. I do not believe that without of the help of young individuals, a prompt action could have been possible. A salute to those young individuals who played a role and made a difference!
