Our, the riverine country, Bangladesh. The land of cultures, traditions and beliefs. The land of natural resources, human labour and progressive economy. We are living in harmony.
This sudden explosion of coronavirus turned everything upside down. It is taking so many lives at a time. Many are citing this virus as a curse of Allah on the evil people of this earth. Some are claiming this to be a political conspiracy.
However, we, the Bangladeshi should not be concerned about this. Because this virus has entered with the some decent effects. Though it is shocking but is 100% true. Let’s have a look.
According to the studies, the percentage of rape has fallen to one percent after the exposure of this virus. Whereas the condition of rape rates were astounding. Neither the general mass nor the Government could help these recurrences. But the virus helped the poor rape victims. It has staved off the innocent girls from being assaulted.
The percentage of road accidents have detected a sudden plunge. Even two weeks back there were bundles of news of death by road accidents. But now, people are hardly seen outside their abode. Nonetheless, our Dhaka(the capital city) has recently remarked its position as the most polluted city on Earth.
Apart from these, this riverine country has been yanking lives after lives by flood, landslide or drought. Dengue, Chikungunia, building collapse, fire spread and so on are seizing so many lives one after another.
The corruption of dishonest ministers and businessmen put our health at risk with hundreds of weapons for example , sudden increase of gas, water, electricity or grocery bill; injecting foods with toxic chemicals and by compelling for money extortion.
Above all, in our country, we sometimes get disappeared all of a sudden to never return back. This is how the people of Bangladesh are hanging around. As far as the Covid-19 is concerned, it is not something exotic to us. Just a different means of taking the lives. The value of lives of the Bangali were never appraised and will never be.
The hashtag “flattening the curve” is recognized to us only by remaining at home even if we are unwell or suffering from other health issues or if we have symptoms of this particular virus. Stay at home because your utility has expired.
