A renaissance mind
Recently Prof. Amartya Sen visited Dhaka where he attended a public lecture in Krishibid Institution. In that programme, Professor Rehman Sobhan termed Nobel Laureate Professor Sen as a 'true renaissance mind'. We don't consider this as a mere friend's praise; Professor Sen truly deserves this accolade. He is the pioneer of economic development with a strong human content and democracy with liberty and free discourse.
Professor Sen's praise for our country makes us happy. He mentioned that in education, healthcare, women's empowerment and gender equity, Bangladesh is doing better than India.
We hope our government would follow this world famous economist's advices and would not shrink the space for discussion to solve political problems.
