The Power of the Youth
Last week's Spotlight on the exuberance of Ekushey was a knowledgeable one. It might sound very ignorant of me but I didn't know that some of our language martyrs are resting in peace at city's Azimpur graveyard. After reading the Spotlight, I went there and offered prayers for the departed souls of the martyrs. On my way back home, as I was remembering about their valiant contribution I suddenly realised that it is the youth who have always initiated the great revolutions. The recent uprising at Shabagh also stands to the fact. I hope, just like the historical year of 1952, so much positive energy will not go in vain and the youth will be able to bring about a better Bangladesh.

Shabagh makes way for justice

The youth uprising at Shahbagh Projonmo Chattar has given our nation new hopes. But it is an alarming fact that some people are trying to instigate unrest all over the country by spreading all kind of rumours about this rightful protest. Especially the social media websites are getting overwhelmed by such misleading posts. It is not very hard to understand that these kind of heinous attempts are being made by certain sections of people, who do not want justice for the war crimes committed during our liberation war. We need to get more vigilant to foil their evil attempts and keep up the spirit of Shahbagh. If we can get successful this time, Shahbagh can pave the way for justice in many other cases which are yet to be resolved.

The Recipe to Get Attractive!
Congratulations to Naziba Basher for an outstanding article on the diet plan of noted musician Shakib Chowdhury, published on the last issue of Star Campus. The famous vocalist from the band Cryptic Fate is often fondly called as 'Danob' by his fans. I myself am a huge fan of Cryptic Fate and never missed any concert covered by them. So, it will be very exciting to see a slimmer and obviously more attractive Shakib Bhai during his future performance. Needless to say, if the diet-plan actually works out then people like me who is having trouble to fit into their shirts will be very inspired!

For a Discrimination
Gender discrimination runs deep in our society. I cannot find any purpose for different schools for boys and girls. It just does not make any sense. As if the school system itself is not bad and close-minded enough, separate schools for boys and girls provides the students with an impression that members of the opposite gender are to be treated differently. I think this kind of mindset is one of the major reasons behind sexual harassment and other social problems.
