On one of my recent survey in Bangladesh I was working with a group of children and near the end of the day, as I began to leave, all the children gathered around to say goodbye. I got to know that these boys and girls, from age’s 3 years old and up, were from the streets and garbage dumps. Some had been just wandering around not sure of where to go or how to survive.
Why were these things on the minds of young children? These are questions I have found in many parts of the Bangladesh with those that have lost loved ones or have been separated from family members. But these little ones have not been put out because it was their choice or that they wanted their freedom. This was a decision forced on them because of their surroundings. Read More

সেলিমের সুগন্ধি ধান: শখের শেষ নেই মানুষের। শখ মেটাতে গিয়ে কষ্টেও ক্লান্তি নেই। বরং এতে আনন্দই বেশি। এ জন্য একজন সংগ্রাহকের নিভৃত ভাণ্ডার সমৃদ্ধ হয় প্রিয় জিনিসে। এমন একজন সংগ্রাহক সিলেটের দক্ষিণ সুরমা উপজেলার কদমতলী এলাকার কৃষিপণ্য ব্যবসায়ী আবদুল বাছির ওরফে সেলিম (৩৬)। ৪১ জাতের সুগন্ধি ধান আছে তাঁর সংগ্রহে। শুধু সৌরভেই নয়, আকৃতি এবং চাষের পদ্ধতিতেও বেশ বৈচিত্র্য আছে এসব ধানে। সংগৃহীত ধানে বেশ কয়েকটি বিরল জাত রয়েছে। তবে স্রেফ মনের ক্ষুধা মেটাতেই আর দশজন শখের সংগ্রাহকের মতো এই ব্যতিক্রমী কাজে নামেননি তিনি। দেড় যুগ ধরে সংগৃহীত এসব সুগন্ধি ধান দেশের মানুষের বৃহত্তর কল্যাণে দান করবেন সেলিম। ১ অগ্রহায়ণ ‘কৃষি দিবসে’ কৃষি সমপ্রসারণ অধিদপ্তরের কাছে তিনি হস্তান্তর করবেন এসব ধানবীজ। পরে তা সরকারিভাবে সংরক্ষিত হবে।
