early every morning, as i flip through the pages of the daily newspapers
i find bold headlines — “bus-truck collision at tangail”, “7 dead, 20 injured”,
“5 dead from the same family by private car-bus collision at sylhet”,
“44 people dead at chittagong as truck turns upside down into a ditch,
3 people in fatal condition………
everyday i see these news and I feel resentful, i feel loss, i feel empty, i feel helpless…….
again so many more lives lost before they flourished, so many more families losing their beloved one, so many more families losing their only earning member and turned poorer or penniless……..
i see nobody cares; neither do i, nor does my country……….
i am quite happy living my own normal life, i am quite relieved that i haven’t lost a beloved in these road accidents……..
fortunate me taking my morning tea, turning over and over the newspaper pages, thinking myself very lucky and living everyday of my life, yet dying every moment……..
