The River Halda merits inclusion as both a national and global heritage, according to UNESCO, and yet, the waters of the River Halda today are severely polluted. According to sources, a vast section of Chittagong’s industrial factories and residential refuse are being directly channeled into Halda through Bamanshahi, Krishnakhali, and Kuaish Khandakia, contaminating the water in the process. The only tidal river in which carp eggs are directly harvested after fertilization is Halda, which is why direct egg extraction is unique to tidal rivers.
Teachers’ Day is a special day to show teachers how much we value them. It may also involve festivities to recognize their exceptional contributions to the society at large or to a specific field of study. In the opinion of Education International, it is crucial for the world to acknowledge a particular day at the national level, which is deserving of the proper acknowledgment of teachers working in social transformation. Building people is a teacher’s job. From the beginning, Bangladesh has recognized this day.
According to a report titled “Global Burden of Disease” published in the science journal Lancet on May 18, 2022, it clearly mentions that pollution caused over 215 thousand premature deaths in Bangladesh in 2019. The poor air quality was the main contributor to such deaths while water and lead pollution and occupational hazards were the other causes.
Bangladesh is a small country with a large population, and millions of cars on the road. The roads of this country are too narrow for a large number of private cars, so naturally, they cause traffic jams. Our capital city Dhaka was declared as an unlivable city in 2018 by the UK’s Economist Intelligence Unit. The two main reasons for being labelled as an unlivable city were pollution and traffic jam. Pollution and traffic are interconnected. Long traffic congestion on road plays a major role in increasing air and noise pollution. According to World Traffic Index-2019, which is published by a research institute Nam Bio, Dhaka led the world in traffic congestion. Not only that, our capital is also at the top of the time wastage and traffic inefficiency index. The increasing number of vehicles, especially private cars should be held responsible for the increasing traffic in Dhaka City.
