We are about to say goodbye to the year 2003. All through the year
many events took place that thrilled and pleased us, stunned, shocked
and rocked us. These are the events that reshaped our lifestyle. Let's
look back for a moment in the year 2003 and find out what they are.
that is good'
The year started with a fresh breeze as the people of Dhaka city bid
farewell to all the two stroke auto rickshaws after riding them for
47 years. The decision to take yellow two-strokes off the streets
of Dhaka became effective from the 1st January. This was viewed as
a positive event by the city dwellers. Hopes prevailed that the air
quality of Dhaka has a chance of improving. The news hit the headlines
in all the national papers and was considered as one of the few good
things that happened to us in many days.
events that mostly brought joy to our heart came directly from our
sportsmen. In January 20th Bangladesh won the South Asian Football
Federation Championship trophy. We haven't acquired that many trophies
since our independence so this has obviously made the football fanatics
in cricket were even more interesting. National team players Kapali
and Rafique created headlines during the Pakistan tour. On 29th August,
Kapali astounded everyone in the cricket scene by becoming the first
ever Bangladeshi bowler to earn a hat-trick in the test cricket. In
the same match Rafique became the first ever Bangladeshi bowler to
claim two five-wicket hauls in a test match. Kapali and Rafique definitely
deserve a pat on the back for their world-class performance.
film Matir Moyna, directed by Tareq Masud was widely acclaimed by
film critiques around the world. The film won several international
film awards. In Cannes, the movie won the international critique prize.
On December 21st the film earned an award in Karafilm festival in
Karachi. For our film industry, this is definitely the great news
of the year.
the political scene the event that was discussed for weeks was the
High Court order to strip off lawmaker Delwar Sayedee of his parliament
membership for showing false documents on election expenses and violating
other electoral rules. During election it is a common practice by
our politicians. They usually get away with it but in the case of
Sayedee our legal system was stern. This ruling was considered by
the civil society as the right thing to do. However there are others
who deserve the same action.
year 2003 was the year of verdicts in sensational murder cases, that
shocked the nation during their occurrence. People hailed these verdicts
given by the speedy trial tribunal. After our independence many innocent
students died in crossfire in the gunfight between student wings of
major political parties but none of the killers were punished. Killers
of Sony, who died in crossfire in the BUET campus, heard the judge
announce their fate on 30th June.
June 31st the court sentenced the killers of Bushra to death, in the
Shaznin murder case the accused faced the same verdict on September
2nd. The accused of Sutrapur double murder, the killers of Don and
Naushin are to walk the gallows as well.
'bad' and 'ugly'
The 2003 is politically a quite significant year. 9th January
cabinet approved "Joint Drive Ordinance 2003" which indemnifies
all defense personnel for all their acts during the countrywide joint
drive called "Operation Clean Heart". This ordinance brought
questions in the minds of many.
US attack on Iraq in March 20th was the most stunning issue worldwide.
Bangladesh was as shocked as the rest of the world. Hundreds of Bangladeshis
joined in rallies protesting this gruesome attack on the people of
Iraq. Huge headlines in bold red fonts took over the first page of
all national dailies for a while. This issue was the focal point of
many discussions all through the year and is still in the hot spot.
August 17th Dhaka gave immunity to US solders by signing a pact with
the US government. The pact was signed in a secret meeting in Washington.
This has raised questions and created suspicions in the minds of many
as to why news such as this was kept from the people.
the first week of October, the people of Bangladesh witnessed the
most awkward event of the year. We failed to play the national anthem
in the conference of Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA).
In the presence of around 500 delegates from 48 nations, the audio
system failed to play the song twice, embarrassing the entire nation.
did not end there. Several countries discovered that their flag was
hanging upside down. Some of the country delegates including Fiji
and Cyprus straightened the flags themselves.
The morning of July 1st was stunning for many people as they read
one of the most shocking news of the year. A car knocked down a doctor
riding in his motorbike. The bike was tangled with the bumper of the
car. The driver did not stop to save the man he hit; instead he dragged
the poor man for over a kilometre, killing him on the way. Even after
all this month the killer driver is still at large. This is obviously
one of the most ugly events of the year 2003.
death of around 700 hundred people due to an overloaded launch disaster
is the most tragic event of the year. On July 8th the triple-decker
MV Naushin capsized after being sucked in to the whirlpool in Meghna
river near Chadpur. The launch was carrying people double it's capacity
as the engine of other major launch broke down. This is one of worst
accident of the decade and depressed the heart of many.
after the incident, actions against unfit water vessels was initiated
but the efforts end futile as the launch owners called a strike and
compelled the government to oblige by their demands.
killing of 11 persons of one family in an arson incident was another
depressing event. The dreadful event took place on 19th November at
Banshkhali, Chittagong. The locals said that robbers burned down the
house not being able to enter and loot. Bimalenra Lal Shushil is the
only member of the family who survived the tragedy.
when the year is about to end another fatal and tragic incident took
place. On 25th December, 5 children were found dead in a water tank.
A toddler of 1 year 3 month was among them. The others were aged between
4 to 7. The fatal accident happened in Azampur, Uttara. Parents of
the victims could not believe that their babies are gone forever.
The incident shocked the entire neighbourhood.
drama to the scene
Every year there are incidents that add drama and spice to life. In
2003 the former president Bodruddoja's announcement to create a platform
to fight the misdeeds that has been going on was dramatic.
most dramatic event of the year was an international one. It is easy
to guess. We are talking about the capture of Saddam Hossain of course.
The day of the capture was December 13th. However the news was disclosed
to the world few days later. The news of the capture promptly gave
birth to discussions and created speculations about what is going
to happen now.
Another year awaits us with more events of joy, surprise and sorrow.
We have to wait and see how it turns out. Lets just hope it turns
out to be a happy one.
