      Alochona extends its congratulations to Dr Yunus and Grameen Bank on this tremendous achievement.

      This recognition has long been overdue and in the turbulence of what is the world today, this should be a source of pride for Bangladeshis everywhere.

        Well, the president has taken over…Bah Humbug. What it will solve in the long
        run is not taken for granted. He doesn’t have any advisers yet, for which the
        political horse-trading will continue for God knows what. If the Awami League
        loses in the election three months later, there will be unprecedented anarchy
        unleashed on the streets as usual, and BNP is hell-bent on winning. Given the
        unprecedented cruelty witnessed on the streets, and the fact that there are
        thousands and thousands literally out there stranded all over the country
        (there are 50,000 stranded in Cox’s Bazaar alone), I am not sure AL should
        deserve the any iota of consideration there.

        Then again, BNP is full of Young Turks with tons of testosterone and bad teeth
        and Awami League is full of people with leaking bladders and enlarged
        prostrates with extremely questionable fashion sense and even less
        understanding of what ‘of the people, by the people, for the people’ concept is
        all about. In both cases, its what ‘Ammajan’ wants, when they are not sitting
        in front of the dressing tables coordinating their trousseaus.
        They, and more appropriately, Hawa Bhaban and Shudha Shadan people are not
        paying the salaries of my staff. What do we care who sits in the grandiose
        PM’s office? A lot of hot hair has been blowing out of Hawa Bhaban lately, and
        Shudha Shadan can certainly use some Shudha….Wajed Miah….are you there? With
        tinted glasses on their bullet-proof fancymobiles, they definitely see
        Bangladesh through their outrageously expensive rose coloured glasses. I do
        hope Hasina’s PMS makes a gradual settlement towards permanent menopause. Her
        hot flashes are burning us gradually for the past decade or s, akin to the
        Chinese torture methods. At the same time, Khaleda needs to loosen the grip on
        her pearl choker held together by that diamond clasp that reminds me what
        Princess Diana’s right after she got married. The grip is making her
        hyperventilate, with visions of well light countryside, cheap food, and an
        outrageously booming economy that had even caught China’s attention with green
        eyed envy….or is it blue-grey…both of these females seem to have the same
        eye-colours….what are the odds of that?

        Yesterday’s disappointment was, the Prez, as the head of the defense forces did
        not ask the army personnel to take control of the streets, secure all the
        ports, and put this shindig to an end. Poor thing, he was in the centre of
        unwanted controversy just by getting sick and nearly kicking the bucket in
        Singapore. Are pacemakers adjustable by remote control from the outside? The
        doe-eyed Khaleda has certainly put the pace down, whereas it should have the
        other way around. Slumped on his presidential throne, face somewhat distorted
        by not so glorious academic achievements and caught like an aging husband with
        two bickering wives, his vision on TV during the swearing in was rather
        personally ominous. Can someone please send a good-looking nurse with an
        oxygen mask and cylinder to be his consort for the next three months? This is
        not the time to indulge in the comforts of the presidential palace and
        procrastinate and look bored.
