A big 'tragedy' of errors

Shams Rashid, Dept. of EEE, BUET

The condition of our country has become one big 'tragedy' of errors between two parties with the people stuck in the middle. The clash, death and destruction have become an integral part of our politics. No side seems to care for the deaths of so many people. Continuous strikes and blockades have made the public shocked, motionless and passive. The deadlock in educational and business institutions is one big farce for our politicians. The biggest joke seems to be the upcoming election where half of the parliamentary seats have already been won by sole candidates scoring in empty fields even before the election begins. Only in times like these we realise how exceptional Bengalis are from the rest of the world. While most of the intellectuals are busy storming their opponents and expressing their grave concerns over talk shows and seminars, our country burns like hell. But who cares? As long as the twisted game of thrones continues we are but spectators of a big 'tragedy' of errors.
