Letters to Editor

Birdem
The recent doctors' strike (June 25-28) at Birdem points to the major management problem that prevails at this institute.

Age and leadership
A political leader who leads a nation should have certain traits like charisma, vision, intellectual stimulation, inspiration, etc. attained over the period of working life through the process of learning.

Humiliating capitulation!
It's long since Bangladesh started playing cricket. If they continue playing cricket in the manner as they are now in Sri Lanka, cricket fans in Bangladesh will find solace by forgetting the game.

A foreign ruler?
I carefully read the informative piece "The Battle of Palashi" by Faruque Hasan on June 24, 2007. I thank the writer for providing us with valuable information.

Hilsa export
We are deprived of the good taste of hilsa for many years because of its high price in the local market. We should also remember that the export of hilsa brings foreign exchange for the country.
 
Golapganj Pourashava
A few years back , Golapganj Sadar area of Sylhet district was declared a Pourashava along with some more places.
 
Apology for cricket!
In the first innings of the second Test, Bangladesh registered their lowest total in a completed innings (62). This also happens to be the lowest completed Test innings on Sri Lankan soil.
 
Foreign ruler issue
The views expressed in your daily on June 24 in the "Point-Counter Point" page by Faruque Hasan in his article "The Battle of Palashi" have drawn my attention.
 
A good article
I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to Mr. Md. Anwarul Kabir for his article entitled "The 'confessional statements' and journalistic ethics" published on June 26.
 
Controlling narcotics
Recently, illegal possession of alcoholic beverages and prosecution by court have made headlines in our national dailies.
 
Comments
I strongly disagree with Paul Kokoski's letter to DS ( June 3) which criticises embryonic stem cell research. These cells have no human lives. An embryonic stem cell is not even a fetus.
 
Bangladeshis in Kuwait
People came to Kuwait not only for working but also to prove that Bangladeshis are sincere and honest. But the Kuwait government has banned issuance of work permit to Bangladeshis.
 
Power generation
Your staff correspondent's report (July 6) about the visit to Bangkok is somewhat baffling. One can understand going to Yangon for negotiating a deal for hydro power supply to Bangladesh.
 
Good point raised
I express my appreciation to M. Adil Khan for his article "Whom should we go after: corruption or the corrupt?" I believe this well-written piece will further enlighten our Anti Corruption Commission.
