DMCH in dire condition

With a sense of pride, I took my grandchildren recently to Dhaka Medical College and Hospital (DMCH) to show them the place from where I graduated. But upon reaching the premise, I was totally shocked and ashamed to see the condition of the place that I feel so dearly about. It didn’t even look like an educational/medical institution, to say the least! The walls were plastered with bright multi-coloured posters all over. The heavy iron rods between the corridors and verandas were reminiscent of a jail instead of an educational institution. It seemed dirty and messy, and to make matters worse, the unbearable stench from the nearby drains made it impossible to stick around.

I was so disappointed that one of the most prestigious and biggest medical colleges of Bangladesh was in such a sorry state. Needless to say, there are other such hospitals and colleges across the country which are operating in similar situations, if not worse. I urge the responsible authorities to immediately fix the horrible conditions surrounding DMCH and other such vital institutions for the benefit of the country and its people.
