I'm a student of Sherpur Government College in 2nd Year
Science Group. I believe that some illegal activities took
place during the First Year exams which were held recently.
I think one of the teachers sold all the exam scripts even
before examining them and later, assigned fake marks to
all the students. I couldn't believe this at first because
the teacher was known to be honest and responsible, but
I was shocked to find my own exam script, unevaluated, at
a grocery store. I want to do something about this but I
don't know what.
You should take legal help. Talk to a lawyer friend who
might be able to give advice. You must also gather as much
proof as possible. I totally agree that you should do something
about this. These kinds of people should not be allowed
to work as examiners and should be punished both socially
I'm 22 years old and studying at DU. My family is not well-off
and due to our need for money, I work extra hard all day
long, giving private tuition besides studying myself. But
I don't have a congenial environment for studying at home.
The television is usually on very loud and my parents also
quarrel now and then which distracts me. I have a seat at
a residential hall but can't afford it financially as my
parents deny me my expenses as well. I just can't deal with
all this sometimes. Please tell me what I can do.
It must be hard and you have all my sympathies. However,
having come so far, you should not give up now. Please talk
to your parents; explain to them the consequences of the
present situation. As they do not want you to fail, I am
sure they will at least listen to you. Regarding your seat
in the residential hall, well, perhaps they really cannot
afford it. Perhaps you can pay for it yourself out of your
tuition money. You must also discuss this with them. Sometimes
we give little credit to our parents -- they might surprise
you with their understanding.
I'm 19 years old -- the eldest child in my family -- and
have just taken my HSC exams. I have two younger brothers
who only play and watch television all the time. They do
not do well in their studies and my parents blame me for
it, thinking that I don't do my duty as an elder brother.
But whenever I try to talk to my brothers about it, they
are not interested. Relations between my family and myself
are deteriorating. Is there any way out of this problem?

In a hole,
As an elder brother, you do have a certain responsibility
towards them. However, how this problem is approached is
important. You will first have to become a friend before
expecting them to listen or obey. Young people generally
rebel against authority and that is what they are doing.
You will have to think of innovative ways to make them get
back to books and studies. You should also understand that
these boys are not abnormal -- all children their age are
doing it. Regarding the relationship with your parents,
you should be able to handle it. You have to demonstrate
in some ways that you are responsible and care about the
