Football festival

The whole country has worn a festive look with colours of Brazil, Argentina and other favourite football playing nations flying on rooftops, bamboo poles, huts, shops and even vehicles. T shirts and stickers of those flags are selling like hot cakes. Youngsters have shown their loyalty to the favourite nations by vandalizing vehicles on their failure to watch the games because of load shedding. Some BUET students blew their future for WC by making the authorities close down the highest seat of education in our country. My wife won't watch any Bangladeshi programmes on TV. She prefers refined acting in refined Bengali of West Bengal to Bangladeshi low comic drama serials in local dialects. Should I blame my wife? Should I point finger to the youngsters for their showing emotional attachment to the countries that have made neatness and transparency their guiding principle? So to make our youngsters proud of our flag that we achieved in return of blood and tears, first we have to ensure good governance characterized by benevolence, austerity, honesty, accountability and diligence on the part of every citizen.
