Silence of the Voices


Pakistani women must embark on a long journey in order to find and form a strong identity, says ZOIA TARIQ.

Ever wonder how much the world has changed for women in the last two decades? In the South Asian region, women empowerment is a hot issue today. In Pakistan, too, the masses are familiar with terms like gender equity, gender disparity, gender based violence, women entrepreneurship and gender advisors. These issues are frequently discussed and analysed on TV channels, newspapers, seminars and radio shows. Various platforms have been developed in different sectors to empower women and advocate female literacy in Pakistan. Continue reading

We’re all living in America
America, America
We’re all living in America
America is wonderful.

Women’s sports in Bangladesh — Women’s sports has potential but requires support, says NAIMUL KARIM


Bangladesh Cricket Team Celebrating After Defeating Ireland CopyWhile the cricket scorecard displayed an easy win for the women in green, their nine wicket victory against the United States last year was more than just a modest cricketing triumph. It was the victory that gave them the One Day International (ODI) status. It was an achievement not just for women’s cricket but for the entire sporting fraternity of the country. The victory, in a way, represents the changes — both in terms of attitude and training — that have taken place in the women’s sporting arena. Continue reading

Sea Limit Row with Myanmar…….Bay is ours


International tribunal upholds Bangladesh’s economic, territorial rights over 200 nautical miles from coast

Bangladesh yesterday won a landmark verdict at the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea, which sustained its claim to 200-nautical-mile exclusive economic and territorial rights in the Bay of Bengal rejecting the claims of Myanmar. The verdict of the court went absolutely in Bangladesh’s favour and even beyond, as it gave more than what Bangladesh had asked for. The judgment is final and cannot be appealed against. The verdict of the tribunal gave Bangladesh a substantial share of the outer continental shelf beyond 200 miles, which would open ways for offshore oil and gas exploration in the Bay. The tribunal also awarded Bangladesh a full 12-mile territorial sea around St Martin’s Island, overruling Myanmar’s argument that the island be cut in half and shared.

“We have got everything, even more than what we wanted. We are happy, we are absolutely delighted,” cheerful Foreign Minister Dipu Moni told The Daily Star over the phone from Hamburg, Germany. Continue reading

Someone ordered a pair of shoes?


As a rule of thumb, customisation is always better than standardisation. You are unique. No one is like you; you need things according to your very specific needs and desires. We can easily picture ourselves walking to a tailor and ordering a suit but how many of us have thought of wearing custom-made shoes? Continue reading

FATHER MARINO RIGON……. IN LOVE WITH BANGLADESH


The story of the Italian priest who has been fighting oppression, poverty and ignorance in Bangladesh, the land he is in love with

As a child, he wanted to go to Africa and later to China. He was even assigned to Sierra Leone, but that suddenly changed and he was ordered to go to Bangladesh (the then East Pakistan). To Father Marino Rigon, it was a divine sign. God had wished for him to be in Bangladesh. According to Father Rigon, every decision in his life has had a divine premonition. “There is no reason why,” he says in reply to why he chose the life of a priest. His Bengali, without the unnecessary presence of foreign words, sounds like a sweet soothing song. “At the age of four or five I had declared that I want to become a missionary. You tell me why a child of four/five would say that?” he asks in turn. Yet his father Ricardo’s performance as Jesus in the village theatre of Villaverla, Venice Italy, did influence Fr Rigon. He too would copy the acting while performing at his school play. With time, his love for Jesus grew and soon he went to live with the Xaverian community. In 1943, he became a Xaverian taking vows of discipline, celibacy and simplicity. Continue reading
