I am feeling upset to see your condition.” That was such message from Bangamata Fazilatunnesa for the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman who spent around 13 years of his life in jail for the liberation of the Bengali nation.

The accident rate in air transport is very low compared to other forms of transport

Breaking News, Opinion
Md. Kamrul Islam Air transportation is considered to be the safest mode of transportation in the world. About two-thirds of all aircraft in the air around the world is always in the sky. And every aircraft operates using the ICAO code or the code given by IATA. All aircraft around the world are connected to some air traffic control tower while in motion. Whenever an aircraft deviates from a control tower or loses contact, the aircraft crashes. The accident rate in air transport is very low compared to other forms of transport.

Right to food & nutrition; Pandemic Speeding the Crisis

Opinion
SHAMEUL ISLAM SHOVON Despite an impressive trend of food production leading to almost 'self-sufficiency', Bangladesh still lacks sufficient food required for meeting the dietary energy for its people.

Why ‘designated smoking area’ in restaurants?

Why ‘designated smoking area’ in restaurants?

Opinion
Rezaur Rahman Rizvi You went to the restaurant with your family. Suddenly you noticed that there was a closed room inside the restaurant as a 'designated place' for smoking. The smokers who come to the restaurant there smoke and hang out. Many non-smoking friends or relatives gossip in that room. However, even though the place is set aside for smoking, the smoke and smell of smoking can be found all over the restaurant. Because whenever someone enters or exits that room, the smoke and smell of smoke come out with it. The subject is very uncomfortable for those who do not smoke.

Taxation of tobacco products to protect public health is disappointing

Taxation of tobacco products to protect public health is disappointing

Opinion
Rezaur Rahman Rizvi In her concluding remarks at the South Asia Speakers Conference on 31 January 2016, Hon'ble Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina announced to eradicate tobacco use from Bangladesh by 2040.

And so, the first way to ban tobacco is to reduce tobacco use among the public. Therefore, it is important to emphasize that tobacco and tobacco products are no longer readily available to them. Increasing the p...
