Thanks to Mr. M.R. Choudhury for presenting a very lively discussion on the current political events in Bangladesh. The most interesting aspect was a two-line Urdu poem recited by the respected guest. He has succeeded to narrate the current state of affairs of governance by his two-line Urdu poem. We remember that during British rule Urdu culture was part of the aristocracy. Of course, currently English has taken over the place of Urdu in the upper and upper middle class families in Bangladesh. The culture of language has a definite bearing on the social status of a family. I do not know where we are heading, to our desired destination of cultural change or creating a class to dominate the affairs of the state. Nevertheless, thanks to Mr. Choudhury and his respected guest for presenting a befitting Urdu poem having high relevance to our present status of governance and people's sufferings. We expect more to come from Mr. Choudhury's show which might include our lost heritage and pride of the upper class.
By the way, recently VOA aired an interview with famous Indian celebrity- Rituporna Sengupta. The interview was worth watching. It is good to know that her parents were from Bangladesh--Bikrampur and Manikganj. She presented a wonderful cultural aspect of her life and choice. Thanks to Mr. Ehsanul Haq of VOA for excellent moderation.
