A Perfect Workout Regimen
Last week's spotlight, titled ‘Winter Fitness 101’, I thought, was very helpful for students. Nowadays, whenever I ask people about working out, they give me a list of names of gyms and protein shakes and what not. I always believed that being fit and healthy could be done from home, but I just did not know how to come about it. The article seemed well researched and informative enough to give people like me very insightful information about working out and keeping fit. I thank Apurba Jahangir for such a delightful story and I also thank the Star Campus team for always coming up with ways to help out the people of this generation in any way that they can!

Malaysia, a desired destination of migrant workers from Bangladesh, has lifted 'unofficial ban' on recruiting Bangladeshi workers after four years, inking a Memorandum of Understanding with the government of Bangladesh. As a result, Bangladesh would be able to send many workers to Malaysia in next five years. I would like to congratulate our government on their successful diplomatic effort to pave the way for earning livelihoods by our young migrant workers in abroad. Many of these workers are fresh school or college graduates. However, the government has to take strict action against any irregularity or corruption in the process of sending migrant workers to abroad. The authorities concerned should make an all out effort so that these young migrants can make it to their destination without any hassle and can earn more foreign remittance, which contributes a lot to our national economy.

Walking the Walk
There have been countless articles, countless letters and countless notions for the youth of today to rise up against all the injustice and violence and speak out. I have sent in many of them myself, as a matter of fact. But recently, I realised that that is all we do. We're all busy talking the talk, but none of us have the courage to actually walk the walk. None of us are going out there, risking our lives, like our forefathers did, to stop whatever is happening to our apparent motherland. I really believe, now it is time. Now it's time for us to go out there, on the streets and fight for our lives, fight for the betterment of this nation, and fight for the poor souls like Bishwajit. Enough with the talk, let's hold hands, unite and walk together on our way towards true freedom, towards true independence.

Touching Souls with Music
I couldn't help writing a short review after listening to Arnob's latest Album ‘Adheko Ghume’. In this album, Arnab covered twelve Tagore songs. Arnab has created an overwhelming sound arrangement which gave those Tagore songs a very unique taste.
The song 'Adheko Ghume' amazed me most as it involves a very soothing rendition of Piano that touches one's soul. The fusion created by traditional and western musical instruments was simply spectacular. I wholeheartedly thank and congratulate Arnob for successfully producing the album and give us the opportunity to listen to his aesthetic works. I expect to get more of such amazing albums in future.
