Want a concerted effort

Mohammad Olid Siddiqui Talukder: If a country can be compared to the human body, then its face is the capital. In the words of Rabindranath, the name of getting all the flesh of the body in the mouth is not health. The main thing is that the mouth speaks about the overall situation. If the capital city is dirty and untidy, then the condition of that country can be easily estimated. Sadly, we are in a reality where the situation in the capital Dhaka is dire from many angles. Impressions are gained in a fluid, global, diffused way. In this situation, the challenge of this time is to establish Dhaka as a clean city with the joint efforts of all.

The reality is that Dhaka is one of the most polluted cities in the world. The miserable condition of the rivers around Dhaka due to pollution. Besides, traffic jams, black smoke from vehicles and factories, tannery waste, adulteration of food, low quality of service establishments are also having a negative impact on the life of Dhaka. Under the pressure of large population, there is no proper sewerage system in this city. The population is growing. With that, the number of cars and horses is increasing. But compared to that, roads, hospitals, schools-colleges, gas, electricity, water, etc. are not available. But the capital Dhaka is the heart of the country’s economic activities.

One-third of the country, or about 50 million people, now live in cities. Therefore, there is no alternative to planned urbanization. Dhaka has turned from a place of residence into a huge market. In fact, there is no definite character in this city. Everywhere you look today, the tide of protectionist sentiment is flowing. The city is losing its features. The people of the capital are living here in a state of chaos. As a result, they are being deprived of many civic benefits. This city is like hell for children and the elderly. There is no playground, no pond. It is also important to see greenery.

But Dhaka has a tradition of more than four hundred years. Dhaka is not just a city, it has its own culture. We have to bring back those lost cultures and traditions. Especially to give the gift of a clean city, everyone has to come forward from their place. We have to stop dumping garbage everywhere. We have to make others aware from ourselves. The city corporation must also be responsible in this regard.
