In Bengali “Taaga” means a certain style of Nakshi stitch. At Aarong, Taaga refers to an exciting line of tops, kurtis, skirts, pants and accessories designed exclusively for the urban young women. The fine distinction of Taaga products is that it blends western style with Bangladeshi motifs, patterns and textures. Since its inception in 2003, Taaga has received much popularity and has become the “must-have” brand amongst the fashionable women in Bangladesh.

A Mutiny in Disguise

March 17, 2009

10:30am Wednesday 25th March 2009, I was in my university doing my statistics class. The class ended fifteen minutes before the scheduled time, because we all went to see the news in the television. My faculty ran from the 5th floor of the campus to the ground floor hearing the news that War has started between the Bangladesh Army and the Bangladesh Rifles. We started switching all the channels and the news about a mutiny of BDR(Bangladesh Rifles) was all over the television. At first we heard that the Director General(DG) of BDR has been taken hostage with many other top rank Army officers in the BDR Darbar Hall(Banquet Hall). BDR week was going on when this happened. News was that manytop ranked Army officers were already dead and some passers by were also killed in the shootout.

All the classes of the day were cancelled, so I went home as soon as possible to hear the news properly. In all the news channels the news was all the same, that the angry BDR jawans were deprived of their rights. Common people were all in support of them and no one was regretting the death of the Army officers. Governement declared amnesty to all the BDR rebels to take the situation under control. After the PM’s speech to the whole nation, BDR agreed to surrender their arms and ammuntions to the Home Minister.

Later at night the Home Minister Sahara Khatun went inside the BDR Headquarter in Pilkhana with some leaders of the government and the Inspector General of Police(IGP) Noor Mohammad. His son in law was also inside Pilkhana, Captain Mazharul Haider, the ADC of the DG Major General Shakil Ahmed. Some of the very few jawans surrendered their arms to the Home Minister, and before all of them surrendered Sahara Khatun came out from there. She rescued some of the family members of the Army officers who were stuck inside the headquarter. The next morning on the 26th, gunshots were heard from early morning. Few bodies of Army officers were found in the sewerage line nearby Pilkhana. At firsy two bodies were found of a Colonel and Lt. Colonel, later on bodies kept on coming out from the drains. People were shocked after seeing the dead bodies. They were not only killed, their bodies and faces were tortured by sharped objects also.  After the dead bodies were found the PM took some steps. In a speech to the BDR rebels the PM stated that if they did not surrender, serious actiuons will be taken against them. The Army was furious and wanted to attack, they were all set with their soldoers, tanks, and Armoured Personal Carriers(APC). The government gave strict orders not to do anything and wanted to solve the situation in a political way. I don’t know to what extent they were successful. 46th brigade, one of the most powerful and strong batallion of the Bangladesh Army took position infront of the main gate of the headquarter. In the evening police and government representatives were allowed to enter the premises and the rebels started surrendering.

After the authorities went inside the whole world was schocked by the brutality. All the officers were killed, only a few were able to save their lives. Women were raped, innocent people were killed, the DG’s wife was also killed brutally. After the search operation no bodies were found and only a handful of BDR jawans were inside the HQ. All fled by the other gates abandoning their uniforms, boots and weapons. Many mass graves were found in which the Army officers were put after the rebels killed them. The whole nation was shocked. It took more than three days to unearth all the mass graves and identify the bodies. Many children lost their father, many parents lost their son and many women lost their husband. The brutality were such that it cannot be expressed in words, 25th March of 1971 was being remembered. The brave officers who promised to serve the nation in every way possible was not meant to die like this. People are waiting for the proper justice. Bangladesh lost its very fine officers, it was a huge loss. We hope that the people of Bangladesh will get justice.

10th February 2009, at around 4pm in the evening students of North South University (a well known private university) got to know about the increase in their tution fees. Students were paying 4000 taka per credit, but they got to know that from next semester onwards they have to pay 5500 taka per credit, which will make it 16,500 taka per subject.

After this news was published student’s started gathering & protesting infront of the Administrative office. When the university officials were not able to control them, police came to calm down the matter. After much negotiations and slogans from the students, the authorities had to take back their decision. This increase in tutuion fees will be applicable for new students only, not for the current one who are studying at NSU.

This type of protests are very common in the public universities but for the first time people witnessed something like this in private university also. If students are united, nothing untoward can happen.

Last summer I went to Fiji Islands. It is truly Heaven on Earth. Fiji consists of 322 small islands in the Pacific Ocean of which there are two major islands, Viti Levu and Vanua Levu. Viti Levu is the main island. Fiji is a country with scenic beauty, the islands are naturally beautiful. Every year tourist from all over the world vistits Fiji Islands. Suva is the capital city but it does not have any International Airport, only a small Domestic Airport. Nadi has an International Airport and from there it’s a two hours drive to Suva or anyone can catch a flight to the capital city.

 Fiji is a country where you see the beauty at daytime, at night there is nothin much to see. The resorts from Nadi to Suva are very famous. There are a lot of beach resorts for families to stay there and enjoy. There are many famous Islands where tourists love to visit, as Turtle Island. Fiji is also famous for its tropical bath and beauty care product Pure Fiji. It is famous for the beauty products made from fruits and flowers.

 

Fiji is also very famous for it’s world renowned FIJI Water. The source of FIJI Water lies in the remote Yaqara Valley of Viti Levu, at the very edge of a primitive rainforest lies a vast artesian aquifer, a huge volcanic chamber confined by the rock walls of an ancient crater.  It is purely artesian water and, of the top ten bottled waters sold in the United States, FIJI Water is the only water originating from an artesian source.

Car caught fire

January 31, 2009

On 29th Jan 2009 I was going to the Dhaka International Trade Fair with my friends. While passing Agargaon, infront of the IDB bhaban I saw a car caught fire. Fortunately my camera was with me, so I got out of the car and took some pictures. Bystanders were trying to dose of the fire while the firefighters were on their way. After some time the fire was dosed off. The car caught fire due to the malfunction of the gas cylinder of the car.
