দোষ টা কোথায়?

দোষ টা কোথায়? ভালভাবে লেখাপড়া করলাম। ভাল রেজাল্ট করলাম। বিদেশি ডিগ্রীও নিলাম। কিন্তু মন মতো চাকরি পাওয়া যাছে না। দু একটা পেলাম কিন্তু স্থায়ী হলো না। এই দেশে সাফল্যের মাপকাঠি কি? আগামী দিনগুলো কেমন হবে, কিভাবে কাটবে জানিনা। খুব বেশি চেষ্টা করারও সুযোগ নেই। ভেজাল খাদ্য খেতে হবে, ভেজাল এবং ব্যয়বহুল চিকিৎসা নিতে হবে, দুষিত…

Innocence Among Adversities

I met this boy named Nirob during a workshop at Nokkhottrobari, Gazipur. His mother was working and he was playing and roaming around amidst poverty and other turmoils.

PERSPECTIVES: Where are we living? Are we indeed liberated?
