Bureaucracy has always been considered an indispensable tool of social management. It has often been termed as a necessary evil — necessary because a suitable substitute is yet to be devised — evil, because of its propensity to turn into a power hungry monster.

Reviewing a revolution or an armed struggle for political emancipation — after three decades or so of its chequered evolution is a challenging and complicated intellectual exercise. A revolution or a struggle for political freedom and its colourful journey towards the ultimate goal of social reconstruction evolves through a complicated dynamism of its own. The inputs that influences its evolution are immensely intricate in nature; a varying level of commitments from the original ideals that inspired it, the amazing and unforeseen array of social phenomenon that inevitably influences the evolution

Politics is an astonishing profession — its most amazing component being the political power that propels it. Its mystic element has carried different meanings to many of its practitioners throughout history in all societies.

Assassination or loss of human life through lethal acts is inherently violent and disruptive. It violates the basic foundation of individual or social existence; its brutal character results in immense amount of individual misery besides proving an irritant to a deeply held value of social cohesion and tranquility.

It has often been said that the human mind’s capacity to face challenges is infinite, and in the game of politics the process has been more than spectacular.

THE bomb blast in the Awami League meeting on the 21st August has shocked the sensibilities of the nation on an unprecedented scale.

Cynics might find a pattern of history repeating with some of the debased characteristics of August 15th attempted to be repeated.

The fifteenth day of August is a sad day. On this fateful day in 1975, the glory of a nation’s history earned through enormous sacrifices of decades, was stained by a small group of armed adventurists who usurped the right of the sovereign (common man) to change the pattern
