Congratulations to Dr Yunus
Alochona congratulates Dr Yunus and Grameen Bank on receiving the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize today in Oslo , Norway . In front of a 1,000 dignitaries from around the world this visionary leader received recognition and reward on the world stage. He is that rare creature: an excellent leader and an excellent innovator and an excellent achiever. Today is no less than a milestone in the history of Bangladesh . Thank you Dr Yunus and Grameen Bank for making us all so happy!
- As I watched a rather vapid Iazuddin struggle to
limn the current events in his recent speech in
national TV, I felt a certain amount of pity.
He obviously was having trouble breathing
(you almost can hear his labored breath).
And he obviously was not certain that some of
his assertions can be construed as lie. And
lying in national TV, if not an impeachable offense,
definitely is a serious enough reason for his
opponents to demand his resignation.
Iazuddin's words reminds me of the following passage:
- words are a dreadful reminder that much
of life's consequences are resultant of vagary
and caprice, dictated by the tragedy of the
ill-considered action, the irrevocable misstep,
the irrevocable moment in which a terrible wrong
can seem the only right.
