ACT 1 প্রথম দৃশ্য
রাত ১১টা। কলিংবেল বাজছে । সীমা অপেক্ষা করছে ১০ মিনিট ধরে। সাব্বির এসে দরজা খুললো।
সাব্বিরঃ এতক্ষনে আসার সময় হলো ?
সীমাঃ পেশেনটের অবস্থা খারাপ ছিল। ইমিডিয়েট সার্জারি করতে হল।
সাব্বিরঃ সারা বছর ধরে তো একই কথা শুনে আসছি।
সীমাঃ কি করব ? আমার কাজটাই তো এমন।সারা বছর কই, মাঝে মাঝে তো এমন হতেই পারে। খেয়েছ?
সাব্বিরঃ বাইরে থেকে খেয়ে এসেছি।
সীমাঃ কেন? বাইরে থেকে খেয়ে এসেছ কেন ?
সাব্বিরঃ বাসার খাবার মুখে রোচে না।
সীমাঃ তুমি বুয়ার রান্না খেতে পারো না তাই আমি নিজে রান্না করি দিয়ে গেছি। সেই খাবারও তোমার মুখে রোচে না?
সাব্বিরঃ অরুচি শুধু খাবারে না তোমার প্রতিও ধরেছে।
সীমাঃ ( আহত চোখে) আমাকে কি করতে বলো ?
সাব্বিরঃ কি আর করতে বলব, যা ইচ্ছা করে যাও।
(সাব্বির গ্লাস ভেঙ্গে ফেললো।)

২য় দৃশ্য দুজন পাশাপাশি শুয়ে আছে। অন্যদিক ফিরে। সীমার চোখ বেয়ে পানি পড়ছে আর মাঝে মাঝে ফুপিয়ে উঠছে। সাব্বির সেদিকে বিরক্ত চোখে তাকিয়ে মুখ ফিরিয়ে ঘুয়িয়ে পড়ল। ( তাচ্ছিল্য ভাবে তাকাবে)

৩য় দৃশ্য
সকাল বেলা । সীমার ফোন বাজছে। কয়েকবার রিং হলো। সাব্বির ফোন ধরল।
সাব্বিরঃ হ্যালো !
অপরপ্রান্তঃ জী আমি ক্লিনিক থেকে বলছি । ম্যাডাম কে একটু দেওয়া যাবে।
সাব্বিরঃও তো একটু ব্যাস্ত আছে। পরে ফোন দিন।
অপরপ্রান্তঃ কিন্তু পেশেনটের অবস্থা খুব খারাপ। ম্যাডামের এখনই ক্লিনিকে আসা দরকার। প্লিজ একটু ম্যাডামকে দিন।
সাব্বিরঃ আচ্ছা ।
সাব্বির লাইন কেটে দেয়। এরপর কয়েক সেকেন্ডের মধ্যে আবার কল আসল। এরপর সাব্বির ফোন বন্ধ করে রাখে। আধাঘণ্টা পর। সীমা প্রায় তৈরি। সেল ফোন হাতে নিয়ে বন্ধ দেখে অবাক হয়ে গেল। সেট খুলতেই ফোন আসলো । (সীমা দ্রুত ফোন রিসিভ করলো)
সীমাঃ হ্যালো অপরপ্রান্তঃ ম্যাডাম আপনার ফোন বন্ধ পাচ্ছি কেন? কাল রাতে যে পেশেনটের সার্জারি করা হয়েছিল তার অবস্থা খুব খারাপ। প্রচুর ব্লিডিং হচ্ছে । আপনি তাড়াতাড়ি চলে আসুন।
সীমাঃ কই আমি তো ফোন বন্ধ করি নি, আচ্ছা আমি এখনই আসছি
সাব্বিরের দিকে তাকিয়ে “তুমি ফোন বন্ধ করে রেখেছিলে ?” (সাব্বির কিছু বলল না।)
সীমাঃ This is not fair sabbir. অদ্ভুত মানসিকতা তোমার।
এরপর সীমা এপ্রোন আর স্টেথিস্কপ নিয়ে দ্রুত বাসা থেকে বেরিয়ে পড়ল। ACT 2 প্রথম দৃশ্য
সীমা দ্রুততার সাথে ক্লিনিকে ঢুকল।
সীমাঃ কি অবস্থা জাহিদ?( হাটতে হাটতে)
জাহিদ চুপ করে থাকে।
সীমা কেবিনের সামনে এসে দাঁড়ালো। রোগীর আত্মীয় বেরিয়ে আসল। চিৎকার করতে থাকলঃ ‘’ আপনার জন্য আমার বোন আজ ......।‘’ ছেলেটা কথা শেষ করতে পারলো না। কান্নায় ভেঙ্গে পড়ল।সীমা আস্তে আস্তে সেখান থেকে সরে আসবে।
সীমাঃ জাহিদ , আজ রুটিন চেকআপগুলো করে তাড়াতাড়ি বাসায় ফিরব। ‘’
সীমা চেকআপ সেরে রাস্তায় হাটতে থাকে। দ্বিতীয় দৃশ্য
বাসায় আগে ফিরে বারান্দায় বসে থাকে । এমন সময় সাব্বির এলো। কোনও কথা হলো না দু’জনের মধ্যে ।রাত ১১ টা মিনিট। সীমার ফোন বাজছে। সীমা উঠে ফোন রিসিভ করলো ।
অপরপ্রান্তঃ হ্যালো ম্যাডাম শুনতে পাচ্ছেন ?
সীমাঃ হ্যাঁ, জাহিদ বলো শুনতে পাচ্ছি।
জাহিদঃ ম্যাডাম একটা ঝামেলা হয়েছে।
সীমাঃ কি ঝামেলা?
জাহিদঃ যে পেশেনটটা মারা গিয়েছে তাদের আত্মীয় স্বজন কেস করেছে। পুলিশ এসেছে। আপনার সাথে কথা বলতে চায়। বাসার ঠিকানা চেয়েছিল , আমি দেই নি।
সীমাঃ ওনাদের অপেক্ষা করতে বলো । আমি আসছি।
সীমা ক্লিনিকে যাবার জন্য তৈরি হয়।
সাব্বিরঃ কোথায় যাচ্ছ ?
সীমাঃ দায় এড়াতে।
সাব্বিরঃ মানে ?
সীমাঃ তুমি যে লোকটাকে আজ খুন করেছ তার দায় এড়াতে।
সাব্বিরঃ ওহ ! বুঝতে পেরেছি। তুমি এখন কোথাও যেতে পারবে না। এন্ড দিস ইজ মাই অর্ডার।
সীমাঃ কাগজে স্বাক্ষর করে আমি তো তোমার দাসী হয়ে যাই নি । তবুও এতদিন দাসীর মতই থেকেছি। তোমার দাসী ছাড়া আর কিই বা ছিলাম।আমার ক্যারিয়ার, আমার পরিবার , সব কিছু তোমার জন্য আজ যেতে বসেছে। আত্মসম্মানটাকে বিকিয়ে দিয়েছি। নিজের দিকে তাকিয়ে আয়নায় যে মানুষটিকে দেখি সে আমি নই।নিজেকে মূল্যায়ন করতেও আজ অরুচি হয়। এত অধঃপতন হয়েছে আমার !! মানুষটা মরে আজ বুঝিয়ে দিয়ে গিয়েছে যে আমি অনেক ক্ষমতা আমার। চাইলেই আমি তোমার অন্যায়ের বিরুদ্ধে কথা বলতে পারি। চাইলেই তোমার শৃঙ্খল থেকে বের হতে পারি। যাপিত জীবন কোনও অমানুষের সাথে কাটানো আর পশুর সাথে কাটানো যে একই কথা তা আমাকে চোখে আঙ্গুল দিয়ে দেখিয়ে দিয়েছে। আমি যাচ্ছি।
সাব্বিরঃ তাই নাকি ? যদি এখন যাও তবে আর কোনদিন ফিরে আসার দরকার নেই।
সীমাঃ ভয় দেখাচ্ছ ?নারী বলে অবলা ভাবছ? হ্যাঁ, এমন একটা অমানুষের সাথে জীবন কাটানোর চেয়ে একা কাটানো জীবনটা আশা করি মন্দ হবে না। ওকে আমি যাচ্ছি। ডিভোর্স দরকার হলে জানিয়ো। আমি সই করে দিব।
সীমা বেরিয়ে যায়। চোখ বেয়ে পানি পড়তে থাকে ।সাব্বির স্থির দৃষ্টিতে তাকিয়ে থাকে। সীমা আর কখনও সাব্বিরের কাছে ফিরে আসে না।…...

Retrieved from http://www.equip123.net/JEID/articles/3/Girls’StipendPrograminBangladesh.pdf on [insert month] [insert day], [insert year]. Abstract The Female Stipend Program (FSP) was created in 1982 in Bangladesh to help increase the enrolment and retention of girls in secondary schools. Implemented initially in six areas only, the program was so successful that it was extended in 1994. This paper, based on a desk study of the FSP for the Bangladesh office of the Department for International Development to evaluate the program’s effects, is particularly pertinent for other developing countries seeking to support girls’ education as part of the effort to meet EFA and Millennium Development Goals. Introduction Since its independence, Bangladesh has addressed girls’ education primarily as a means of readying girls for “enlightened motherhood.’ (Chanana, 1994) or to enter professions thought to be suited to women. The 1974 Qudrat-e-Khuda Education Commission Report asserted that ‘women’s education should be such as to be of help to them in their domestic life’, and stressed that subjects such as ‘child-care, the nursing of...

Tax Avoidance and Tax Evasion in Bangladesh

...“TAX EVASION & AVOIDANCE - A REAL PROBLEM FOR BANGLADESH” INTRODUCTION: Tax evasion and avoidance are both phenomena that are probably as old as taxation itself. Wherever and whenever authorities decide to levy taxes, individuals and firms try to avoid paying them. Though this problem has always been present, it becomes more pressing in the course of globalization as this process extends the range of opportunities to dodge taxation while simultaneously reducing the risk of being detected. Developing and emerging countries like Bangladesh are particularly vulnerable to tax evasion and avoidance activities of individual taxpayers and corporations. While tax revenues in OECD-countries are almost 35 per cent of GDP ,in case of Bangladesh it is only around 10%.This can be considered one of the primary reasons for large differences in the ability to mobilize own resources between developed and developing countries. Tax evasion and tax avoidance is a great problem in our country. In Bangladesh there are many individual taxpayers and corporations who are evading or avoiding tax. As a result government’s developments activities are hampered. So, we should know about the tax evasion and tax avoidance and thereby its preventives measures.

...Bangladesh is one of the founding members of the World Trade Organization (WTO), the international body that assists in establishing trade standards for its members. Since the beginning of the WTO Bangladesh has used tariffs as their primary trade policy for imports and exports of goods and investment capital. They use a 5 tariff scale system with a maximum tariff rate of 25% and a minimum tariff of 3% with an average tariff of 14.85%. This system, although staggered with 5 different levels of tariffs, has been questioned where different goods would fall on the chart. Bangladesh has a strong export relationship with the European Union. Trading good that are produced in Bangladesh are duty and quota free when exported to developed countries especially those in the European Union. Of all exports from Bangladesh, finished or partially finished, 90% are sent to the European Union. The tax rate on goods being sent to the United States is decreasing at a disproportional rate compared to other developed countries and the belief is that they will stay much higher in the near future. While the government of Bangladesh hopes that they are able to work out a duty free trade agreement with the United States, the terms of the agreement are being worked out. These factors are going to make exporting of apparel and other goods to the US not competitive compared to other developed countries. The government of Bangladesh has, over recent years, been promoting the country as a......

...Bangladesh’s textile industry. Free trade is an attempt to improve the international economy on the principle of “comparative advantage”. Bangladesh prospered by using their abundance of textile to trade for products that other countries have abundance. The main purpose of the “free trade” was to improve the global economy using the principle of “comparative advantage”. The shift to a free trade regime in the textile industry was good for Bangladesh’s employment and economic growth. Initially, textile products were exported through a preferential quota system from poor markets to rich markets but the shift accounted for lower labor cost, support from other industries, and increased business with western importers. Labor costs decreased to a level lower than China. Lower labor cost was due to low hourly wages and the use of technology. The use of technology increased productivity which allowed consumers to buy more for less money. Importers brought more textiles for less money during the recession. Free trade provided opportunities to build a strong sustainable growth of industries through garment manufacturers; increased opportunities to diversify supply sources, and provided a network for supporting industries. The benefactors of United States trading textiles from low-wage countries include the U.S. retailers and participating countries like Bangladesh. Chmielewski and Media (2016) stated “Free Trade is the best thing that could happen to a global economy and the worst......

...Export Control in Bangladesh 1. Introduction: Bangladesh emerged as an independent country in 1971. She entered into International Trade actively since 1972. In the early years of independence the gap between Import and Export was very wide. This gap started to decrease from 1980s when Bangladesh adopted liberal trade policy consistent with the emerging trend of the market economy. Extensive reform programs have been implemented in trade regimes during the last two decades. The prime objective of the trade policy of Bangladesh is to strengthen the economy. For achieving this objective Bangladesh has adopted export-based development strategy. As export sector is the main sources of hard-earned foreign currency of Bangladesh, Government has taken all the initiatives for overall development of the sector. 2. Export Policy: For export promotion and development Bangladesh has been pursuing periodic Export Policy from 1980. In the first half of 80s she pursued one- year export policies in the first half of 80s and two-year policies in the last half of the same decades. Since then five- year export policies were formulated and implemented. After the expiry of the tenure of five-year policy government announced three –year Export Policy. On going Export Policy is for the period 2003-2009. These policies are consistent with the agreement under Uruguay Round Accord, WTO and the principles of market economy.

Review of the Tax System in Bangladesh a Prerequisite for Industrial Growth

...Proceedings of the AABEA Biennial Convention, October 12th, 2002, Washington DC, USA Review of the Tax System in Bangladesh A Prerequisite for Industrial Growth T. A. M. Nurul Basher* E-mail: nurul-basher@betelco.com Abstract - This paper has been written to highlight the sustainable industrial growth problems being faced by the entrepreneurs in Bangladesh. There are multifarious problems for Industrial growth in Bangladesh but the major bottleneck is the adverse tax system. There exists no consideration for industrial raw materials import in so far as application of duties and taxes compared to those of finished consumer goods. The net result is increase in production cost which in turn makes the product noncompetitive. So as not to create an extra burden on industrial productions, the government needs to remove duties and taxes from imported raw materials as in many Middle Eastern countries and Thailand. The government implicitly accepts the adverse effects of the improper taxes on our industrial growth and has tried partially to alleviate some of these impediments by creating Export Processing Zones and Bonded Ware Houses; this paper explores the benefits doing away with these high import duties altogether. It also looks at the paybacks to the economy from industrial growth. Finally, the expansion of the income tax umbrella is considered and in particular its effects on growing a greater sense of national civic duty and its impact on the voting patterns of the......

...Country Reports on Local Government Systems: Bangladesh Bangladesh ________________________________________________ 1. BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE COUNTRY 1.1 Socio-economic profile Bangladesh emerged as an independent nation state in 1971. Although a new state, Bangladesh is an old country with a long recorded history of several thousand years. In its recent past it was part of Pakistan (1947-1971) and was known as East Pakistan. Prior to this, different parts of present Bangladesh were under British India (1765-1947), the Mughals and other Muslim rulers, and before them under Buddhist and Hindu rule. Bangladesh lies in the northeastern part of South Asia. The country is bounded by India in the west, north, northeast and east, by Myanmar in the southeast and by the Bay of Bengal in the south. The area of the country is 147,570 square kilometers. Climatically, the country belongs to the humid tropics and is vulnerable to a number of natural hazards like cyclones, floods and riverbank erosion, which almost regularly displaces a large number of people. Bangladesh is predominantly a delta plain of one of the largest river systems of the world. Only a part in the southeastern area is hilly. In spite of the apparent physical homogeneity and small territorial size, Bangladesh shows regional variations in physical, infrastructural and socio-economic development. Since its independence, the development planners of Bangladesh have given consideration to the importance of regional...
