Wake up to reality

Abdus Subhan, Lalpur, Natore

THE other day I took my mother to our local public hospital. Doctors at the emergency prescribed medicine among which only saline was given for free from the hospital. What is most troubling was that my emaciated old mother had to be taken to a distant diagnostic centre for several necessary and/or unnecessary tests that the doctors usually advice these days with apparently a view to earning extra money. Similarly, teachers also earn extra money by teaching students privately and writing guidebooks which are blamed for lower standard of our education. We have seen how our position and opposition parties dissipate national wealth holding mammoth meetings and feeding false propaganda. What is needed is not sleeping but waking up to the reality that our seats of education are closing down for violence while lack of treatment and service in public hospitals and institutions are sucking the general people dry of their dignity and wealth.
