Dear Friends and Subscribers
Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullah. Hope the issue will find you well in February — a month of language which is celebrated as International Mother Language Day to remind the world of the importance of mother language. Bangladesh will celebrate the month when its prime educational seat — University of Dhaka— will be observing or probably reckoning what it has achieved and what it hasn’t in its last one hundred years. The university must have set its milestones during its inception against all the oppositions from Indian Hindus based in Kolkata. Probably one of its goals was achieved when Bangladesh became independent in 1971 fulfilling the aspirations of Bengali Muslims who were despised by Indian Hindus. Hope you will like the cover story of the issue.
Human foes are being fielded one after another. After Covid-19, it is now Omicron. The number of human foes is ballooning day by day. According to International Classification of Diseases (ICD) of WHO, the number of diseases and threats that may harm humanity is 55 thousand but the number is not static. Omicron may be another virus in the long list of human foes— merely a newer. So, seemingly there is no respite from the increasing number of diseases. If anyone wants to be safe, s/he needs to create a bulwark around his or her self.
Staying green may be the panacea for all sorts of pandemics. Green lifestyle, green eating, green drinking, green merrymaking and even green religion viz Islam may come to bail out the endangered humanity. Climate change must be tackled by going green in every sphere of life.
See you soon inshaallah. n
