A Rickshaw Puller and A Taxi Driver

A person who pulls a rickshaw or taxi for earning his livelihood is called a rickshaw puller or a taxi driver. A rickshaw puller or a taxi driver is a common figure on the street. Rickshaw pullers and taxi drivers are found in large number is towns. Nowadays, they are found in villages too. The rickshaw puller wears very poor and simple dress. Normally, he wears a torn shirt and lungi. There is a sign of want in his face. So, his appearance is not good looking. On the other hand, the taxi driver wears specific uniform provided by the taxi owner. Sometimes, he had a better living. However, both of them wait for the passengers at the bus stands. railway stations, cinema halls and at the corners of the roads. They draw the attention of passengers by ringing bells or horns or shouting. Although they lead a very miserable life, they can hardly fulfil the needs of their family members. A rickshaw puller pulls his rickshaw by applying his physical strength. On the contrary, a taxi driver drives his taxi with the help of engine. The earning capacity of a rickshaw puller is less than that of a taxi driver. He earns his bread by the sweat of his brow. But he does not complain about his need for anybody. However, both of them play a significant role in society. They render a great social service by carrying passengers from one place to another. So, we should not look down on them.

Paharpur Monastery

The entire establishment, occupying a quadrangular court, has high enclosure walls, about 5m in thickness and from 3.6m to 4.5m in height. Though the walls are not preserved to a very great height, from their thickness and massiveness, it can be assumed that the structure was storied commensurate with the lofty central shrine. In plan, it consists of rows of cells, each approximately 4.26x4.11m in area all connected by a spacious veranda (about 2.43 to 2.74m wide), running continuously all around, and approached from the inner courtyard by flight of steps provided in the middle of each of the four sides. There are in all 177 cells, excluding the cells of the central block in each direction; 45 cells on the north and 44 in each of the other three sides. The central block on the east, west and south sides is marked by a projection in the exterior wall and contains three cells and passage around them, while in the north, there stands a spacious hall. In the monastic cell No. 96, three floors have been discovered. Here the level of the last one (upper) is within 30cm from ground level, that of the second 1m, while the third (lowest) is about 1.5m from the surface.

Natural Disaster

Bangladesh island of natural calamity. People here survive fighting against natural disasters like flood, cyclone, drought, etc. Recently, people have become concerned about the natural calamities and these are earthquake, cyclone, drought and flood. Among all these calamities, the devastating flood in 1988 in still vivid in my memory. Eight districts in the south-west of Bangladesh had been inundated abruptly. The areas which were inundated had been out of flood for long sixty years. All the kacha houses were washed away by the devasting flood. Almost all the trees were uprooted. All kinds of crops were damaged totally inviting a serious famine. The people of those districts became homeless, shelterless and foodless. Though the government and some other non-government organizations extended their helping hands, many people died of starvation. There broke out diarrhoea in an epidemic form taking away many lives. As I am a resident of Patuakhali, I experienced the pathetic scene of the affected areas. Still, I shudder to remember the devastating effect of the flood.
