With my growing up, I came to realize, I live in a city of Crowd. I live in a world of human beings… Nobody who haven’t lived in Dhaka, can never think of life. As I got birth in such a ‘Developing country”, I had no contribution in it. All I get from my lifestyle in such a city, I consider them as gift.
The most interesting part of my urban life is, crowd everywhere. While in the morning I started 2 hours before my office time to cross only 5 kilometers, I found it was not enough!! I discovered hundreds of people are standing on the crossings of roads to board on to a transport but couldn’t manage!
Luckily, I found a bus to ‘hang’ inside after 50 minutes and reached office being scratched. It took 2 hours perfectly! Right now, its 2 hours over from my office time and I am still in office. This is for some other reason. I have wrapped up my works for the next two off days. I made myself calm and opened the editor of WP to write few words. I am taking this opportunity because I know writing a post from my home at night is simply impossible. I rarely have seen that I returned back my home at night and there is electricity on! I find it dark all around, few shops are generator-powered. I buy a candle from shops then use it in ”home-time”. The power will come back and I will take my dinner. And after that, I will manage times to surf internet. Right at that moment, the power will be cut!
The life is awful..I simply can’t imagine what will be the future of my country… our urban life.. our city life… Government is trying to cope with it, but I don’t think they have the capability to meet the requirements. I feel our world itself is heading toward nowhere… What we are suffering, the ”developed” countries will face in very near future… I don’t know how this could be managed!
I can’t expect anything better in future days…. Population is increasing. Power consumption is increasing… but power-production? The nights in the summer are really nightmares… the days are coming. no fans, no lights, humidity, temperature around 35 degrees…
Allah! no way other than calling your names! Just a prayer to you– “save us”! 🙂
