Rohingya Refugees

or, Rohingya Problem

The Rohingya are an ethnic community, the majority of them are Muslim, who have lived for centuries in Myanmar where the majority are Buddhist. At present, there are about 1.1 million Rohingya in the Southeast Asian country. The Rohingya locally speak Ruaingga, a dialect that is separate from others spoken throughout Myanmar. They are not considered one of the country's 135 official ethnic community and have been denied citizenship in Myanmar since 1982, which has effectively rendered them stateless. They have lived in the area now known as Myanmar since as early as the 12th century, according to many historians and Rohingya groups. And they have been living in Arakan from time immemorial. Since the 1970s, a number of crackdowns on the Rohingya in Rakhine State have forced hundreds of thousands to flee to neighbouring Bangladesh, as well as Malaysia, Thailand, and other Southeast Asian countries. During such crackdowns, refugees have often reported rape, torture, arson, and murder by Myanmar security forces. After the killings of nine border police in October 2016, the government blamed what it claimed were fighters from an armed Rohingya group and troops started pouring into the villages of Rakhine State. Since the late 1970s, nearly one million Rohingya have fled Myanmar due to widespread persecution. According to the most recently available data from the United Nations in May, more than 168,000 Rohingya have fled Myanmar since 2012. Following violence that broke out last year, more than 87,000 Rohingya fled to Bangladesh from October 2016 to July 2017, according to the International Organization for Migration. In November 2017, Bangladesh and Myanmar signed a deal for the return of 650,000 Rohingya refugees, who fled in the recent violence. Both countries agreed to complete voluntary repatriation in two years. The plan is based on a similar agreement that was signed in the 1990s to repatriate Rohingya who has fled a previous crackdown led by the Myanmar military.

My Sweet Home

A home is a place of dwelling as well as mental satisfaction. Everyone wants a home of his/her own. I have a home on the other side of the river Buriganga. The area is called Chunkutia. It is not very far from Dhaka City. Though the area is very near to Dhaka, it is still backward. But its natural surrounding is very charming. In other words, I can say I live in the lap of Nature. There is green everywhere around my home. It soothes my eyes. Whenever I go out of my home, I feel homesick. I get up from bed with the chirping sounds of the bird. There is no artificial sound except some natural sound created by different natural objects. Though my home lacks in modern amenities it is full of filial and fraternal love, care and affection. My home is enriched with the beauties and bounties of Nature. Trees all laden with fruits and flowers make me feel proud of my home. I live in my favourite home with full satisfaction and peace of mind.

Same paragraph collected from another book

My home is a sweet place for me. I live there with my parents, brothers, sisters, grandfather and grandmother. I have uncles, aunts and cousins there too. I was born in one of our houses in our home. When I was a baby, I first knew how to walk in the yard of our home. Perhaps my grandmother taught me how to walk. I live in my home in an atmosphere of love and affection. So I have developed a sort of sincere attachment with my sweet home. Sometimes I become sick outside of my home. I feel easy and recover soon with my parents and relatives when I am brought home. My home is south facing. We have an orchard. It has made my home beautiful. So I am proud of it.

My Favourite Sportsman

It is, of course, interesting for me to decide who my favourite sportsman is. Of all enchanting games and sports, I like cricket most. So it is obvious that my favourite sportsman will be playing the game of cricket. Cricket is a lengthy game and played in two versions: one-day single innings version and three, four or five days double innings version. There are scopes for the players of this game to show their capability at various stages: while batting, while fielding or bowling or even wicket-keeping. In such a condition one can hardly choose a single favourite because different players shine at different leaves. Still, my favourite sportsman is mainly a batsman and what a marvellous batsman he is! His name is Sachin Tendulkar. He is a member of India National Cricket Team. He is called the best batsman of our time and one of the best of all times. But rank does not matter is choosing my favourite. I like him because I derive the greatest pleasure when I have a chance to watch and enjoy his batting. He plays all shots of the book and his timing is so sweet that whenever the ball touches his bat it does not give the fielder much time to field it. One thing more is that he finds out gaps in between the fielders most often so fluently that it seems automatic. This quality enabled him to be the highest run-maker in one-day internationals. He is the top century-maker also in that version and in test cricket one at the top. He has played so many dazzling innings and fetched win for his country so many times that his playing a dashing inning is thought equal to the win of his team. He very attacking the field but very gentle off the field. His sportsmanship is proverbial in the arena of cricket. I am glad that such an outstanding personality as Sachin Tendulkar is playing in our time and entertaining us at every appearance.

Morning Walk

Morning walk is not only pleasant but also beneficial to health. In fact, walking regularly in the morning is a very good habit. It is the most advisable physical exercise for the age-ing and the old. In the morning, Nature appears at her best. At that time everything remains quiet and seems impressive. The environment with birds and beasts becomes calm and serene. The people who go out for a walk in the morning cannot but be impressed by it. It helps to keep their mind jolly and jovial. It also sets their temper for the rest of the day. The fresh air of the morning cools the body, refreshes the mind and soothes the nerves. Thus the man who goes out for a walk in the morning inhales fresh and pure air and feels its invigorating effect. Morning walk is, therefore, congenial to health and is never a waste of time as some people may erroneously take it for.

My Favourite Book

The ‘Treasure Islan’ by R. L. Stevenson is my favourite book. In fact, it is a great favourite with me. The hero of the book is a boy of thirteen. His name is Jim Hawkins. He accidentally happened to be in a treasure-hunting expedition. The treasure was hidden in a far-off lonely island by some pirates. Jim and his party, as well as a gang of pirates, were seeking for it. It is a long story of great struggles, adventures and heroic deeds. It is full of thrill and suspense as well as horrors and terrors. Jim, by his bravery, saved his friends from John Silver, the most dangerous pirate that ever lived. He was defeated by Jim. In the long run, he fled away in terror. Jim and his friends got the treasure and returned to England with their purses full of gold. When I find that the young hero wins over the forces of the evil I get a great pulsation of joy and delight. The author knows the magic of holding the young people spell-bound in it.
