Women in Bangladesh

In Bangladesh, women constitute half of the total population. The majority of them are below the poverty line. It is said that women of our country are the poorest among the poor. It is true, over the last few years they have become increasingly visible as providers of productive labour, but they are deprived of equal labour benefits. Women, generally work longer hours than men, but they are paid less than men. Undoubtedly it is a heinous conspiracy to undervalue women’s work and contribution to our society. Here the female domestic workers are treated brutally too. This under-valuation not only reduces women’s purchasing power but it also deprives them of legal rights. Thousands of girls here fall victim to the dowry system. Their sufferings know no bounds. Besides incidents of bride burning, suicide takes place quite often. It is high time we recognised women as equal partners of men. They should be made self-sufficient by giving them proper education and employment. In the modern world, women have proved that they can advance with the males’ shoulder to shoulder. Their role does not come to an end as a mother or a wife. They have many things to do. A number of avenues are open before them. So, women are one of the powerful assets of Bangladesh.

Women in Development

Or, Role of Women
Our national poet Kazi Nazrul Islam praises women for their taking part in the advancement of the world. He says that what is good, great and prosperous in the world in done half by men and half by women. In fact, the contribution of women in every sphere cannot be denied. Once upon a time, women were looked down upon. It was thought that women are born to look after children, for cooking food and for doing household work. Women were not allowed to go to schools or colleges. But with the progression of science people’s views are also changed. They are now able to realize that women can also take part in development. They have proved their ability. Sometimes they do better than men. Moreover, it is seen that they are more sincere than men. They have the ability to be the chief of the country. In our country both the Prime Minister and the leader of the opposition party are women. And thousands of women are engaged in many important official jobs. They are working in all sectors of life with efficiency. Women should be encouraged so that they can take part in the total development of the family as well as the country.

Same paragraph collected from another book

The contributors of every human civilization are both men and women. No success or development of the women. The status of women in Bangladesh is changing significantly. Nowadays, women are increasingly participating in outdoor activities. This is a good sign for the society and for the women themselves. Previously women’s activities were confined within the four walls of the house and not recognized as productive work. Even today in some areas, women are deprived of their due rights to work and education. They have to cross the barriers of the old society. Educated women are now working in offices and in different services. Even the illiterate women are working in garment factories and building construction. Educated young men are now encouraging their wives to work outside the home to contribute to the income of the family as well as the nation as a whole. I really very much appreciate this changes. The women constitute the half of the total population. So, no development of the country is possible keeping the women out of the nation-building activities.

Paragraph - 338

Working Women

It is noticed with pleasure that nowadays the women of our society are becoming working women. They are no more dependent on men. Their role is changing gradually. They are no more only mothers and home-makers. They have come out of their houses. They are not timid. They are participating in both official and unofficial work. They are contributing to the national uplift. They are participating in armed forces and trying wholeheartedly to serve the nation. They can conduct business. They are earning money and sharing with the man all the family responsibilities. So, their contribution is no more negligible. But the women who are engaged in service cannot take after their family well. They cannot take care of their children properly. Their children are deprived of motherly love and affection. In many families, girls are still confined in household duties. Their parents think that one day the girl will become a housewife in a house. They think that they are not fit for doing work in an office or somewhere else. They are born to do household chores like cooking, washing up, feeding babies and managing the household. Here the female domestic workers are treated brutally. Women generally work longer hours than men but they are getting less money. This kind of partial treatment should be stopped. Whatever may be the circumstances, the women should be encouraged so that they can take part in the total development of the family as well as the country.

Your First Flight

My first flight is a memorable event in my life. I received a letter along with a plane ticket from my uncle at Chittagong. He asked to go there and stay with them for a couple of days. The ticket was for a Fokker flight on September 30, 2018. I reached the Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport about one hour before the flight, I had my ticket checked and my luggage weighed and took the boarding card. After about fifteen minutes the flight was announced. Going along with other passengers towards the tarmac, I boarded on the plane. My seat was by the side of a window. Just in front of me, there was a sign with the words: “Fasten your seat-belt. No smoking.” After a few minutes, the plane moved along the runway and then began to rise into the sky. I saw outside. The houses below looked like dollhouses, the paddy fields looked like green carpets and the rivers appeared as broad lines on a drawing sheet. The air hostess came with a tray in her hand and gave some light and delicious refreshments. In about 40 minutes the plane landed at Chittagong Airport and we came to our journey’s end. It was an enjoyable flight that filled my heart with thrill and excitement.

Your Favourite Colour

‘White’ is my favourite colour. Though it does not look like much of colour, yet it is the colour that I like most. ‘White’ is the symbol of purity and for that matter is evokes respect. An old lady dressed in a white saree looks highly respectable. A gentleman having white hair is held to high esteem. He is considered wise also, for white hair is a sign of wisdom. Milk which is the ideal food is white. A house painted white looks grand. Gandharaj flower is very charming with white petals. Besides, in the field of the battle, the white flag is hoisted as a symbol of peace to indicate the intention of the ceasefire. For all these reasons ‘white’ is the colour that wins my heart.
