A clean Dhaka: Just a dream?

I have written articles over and over again about how people indiscriminately dump rubbish at their own will. The Daily Star even cares enough to print pictures in their pages about how filthy our city is but everyone including the government seems to turn a blind eye to it. The politicians don't seem to care. Why is it so? Is it because their neighbourhood is clean? Why is it that the Dhaka City Corporation never gets a performance evaluation and no one is held responsible for this? Someone even cared enough to write about the dangers of dust in the city but did anyone even care enough to read that article? I have so many questions which I know will probably never be answered. All I know is that I dream of living in a clean Dhaka but this will only remain a dream unless the people in power actually wake up and do something about it.
