ARSENIC PROBLEM OF BANGLADESH Arsenic is a natural element. It is geological found is sediments and rocks. It cannot be seen, tasted or smelled when it is present in water. Arsenic contamination of ground water has became a serious threat. About 20% population of the country is at a risk of arsenic. Arsenic can damages nerves, the stomach and skin. Ingestion of Arsenic contaminated water for a long time causes arsenicosis. Some members of a family or community are affected. But others in the same family or community, who consume the same water, may not be affected. The most common early signs of chronic arsenic poisoning are muscle weakness and aching. It is causing serious health hazard to the people. The farmers use contaminated ground water. For this the sail is being polluted. Arsenic is also found in Vegetables, fruits and crops. The entire population may be in danger. Because of Arsenic, the quality of food decrease. High level of arsenic contamination cause tremendous health hazards. We must deal with arsenic problem.

A VISIT TO A PLACE OF HISTORICAL INTEREST Bangladesh has become a grand place because many saints are enjoying eternal sleep here and there in Bangladesh. Their burial places are one of the historical interest. Last January, I had an opportunity to visit a place of historical interest with my parents. I visited the Mazar of Pir Khan Jahan Ali and the Shatgambuj Mosque in Bagerhat. Pir khan Jahan Ali died on the 25th October 1459 and was buried at Bagerhat since then it has been regarded as one of the famous historical places in Bangladesh. This tomb is visited by all classes of people from different parts of the country throughout the year. The mazar is made of cut out stones and on the tomb there are inscription in Arabic. On the full moon night of the month of Chaitra, a big fair is held beside the tomb. There runs a big lake like tank in front of the tomb. It is called Darga dighi. The tank never dries up and its water is sweet. It has several crocodiles in it there is a believe among the people that if they satisfy, the hunger of the crocodile with their offering, their desires and dreams would be fulfilled. After three hours long stay there, we left for Shatgambuj Mosque, about two miles away form the mazar. The Shatgambuj mosque in one of the best architectural beauties of the country. It was built in 1440. It stands on sixty massive pillars. It is one of the greatest tourist attraction of Bangladesh We also visit another tank beside Shatgambuj mosque named Dargha Dighi. After two hours long a visit there we got back home. While visiting these two historical places in Bagarhat. I felt my self thrown back to the days of Pir Khan Jahan Ali. The past history came before my minds eye. I came to know about the pious intention of the people of that time. As it was my first visit to a place of historical interest, I was delighted to recollect the memory of this visit which will remain ever fresh in my mind

Our earth is going forwards disaster for environment pollution. This is how one can answer in the answer script. lf he has little hand writing. Because the equal answers in the answer script carry good marks. A student must stop writing at least five minutes before the last bell rings. Five basis elements of nature are being polluted through water pollution. students must budget their time. he must go through it twice carefully. air pollution and sound pollution. He would write the questions learnt best respectively. But rnan made objects are violating the harmony. washing away.especially oriented to subjects. There is a close relation among the elements of nature. He must not exaggerate or write irrelevant thing which is not related to questions. Water is being pollution in many ways. That's why it is a vital thing to write properly in the answer script. Then think a while which questions are best prepared to him. he must select the best answers written first. So answer should be argumentative. He will not elaborate any answer if he has more questions to attempt. After getting question paper. In the examination. To keep the answer script neat and clean bears a good impression on examiner. he would keep enough space between the lines so that the examiners can easily read his answers. While writing answers. he must keep in his mind what kind of argument he will represent for the respective questions. ENVIRONMENT POLLUTION Our total environment is consisting of natural and man made objects. like throwing wastage from mills and factories. Answer is a some total of arguments that always goes on according to required questions. 4 . While start writing.

Carbon-mono-oxide and lead from motor vehicles and CFC from green houses. horns of vehicle and causes a great harm to our mental as well as general health. Sound pollution must be stopped and it might be done with sincerely . Sound is also another type of pollution that comes from the loud speakers. Moreover the use of chemical fertilizer should be discouraged. Besides we have to stop cutting down of trees at random. The main causes of sound pollution are the fulminating of people the horns of the vehicles. Air is also polluted in various ways like the emission of Carbon-di-oxide. But when it exceeds the limitation then it is turned into a noise. Laws should be strictly imposed to stop throwing waste mate rails directly. It causes a threaten to water beings. We can save our air be taking various steps. It interrupts our daily activities specially the arena educational institutions.We have to campaign against environment with fresh water. Environment can take steps to use CNG in motor vehicles.chemicals from chemical fertilizer and pesticides. The normal tolerance limit of sound is decibels. The indirect 5 . air and audible sound. The emission of CFC gas should be decreased. SOUND POLLUTION Sound is one kind of wave that hits the membrane of our ears. It tells heavy on the serious patients in the hospitals by increasing hyper-tension. We have to stop the environment pollution for our existence. the sound of the mills and factories and also tone of loud speaker. It affects our mental as well as general health. Moreover the wastage our climate day by day. It usually creates from the vibration of things. Sound pollution makes life very uncomfortable. Serious harm can be caused to people if they are faced to sounds exceeding 70 decibels.

As it can 6 . But the thrown wastage. If we are conscious enough to the sound pollution. The top soil or surface is the place which is very fertile and various types of crops. Water one of the most vital elements of nature is being polluted in many ways. Polythene is thrown everywhere. Polythene is the main of them. As a result water clogging happens in some areas especially in low-lying areas. This polythene pollutes our environment in many ways. It has numbers of adverse effect but people are not equally concern about it. rising blood pressure. torn polythene creates soil pollution. then we will be able live happily with audible sound. Polythene is one of them. The government can also impose laws strictly to keep the release of sound in limitation. irritability increasing in normal rate of heart beat. This polythene creates a blockage at sewerage line and interrupts the easy circulation of sewerage system. POLYTHENE POLLUTION Our environment is polluted by man made elements. Soil is one of the vital elements of nature. vegetables and many other things grow them. lack of contraction to any and so on. If it is burnt it cannot be vanished. So people of all walks of life must take it as a great concern and try utmost to stop the cause of sound pollution.effects of sound pollution are the gradual deafness. It is a kind of poly-strene compound which cannot be vanished in soil. At the same time it can cause serious environment pollution. This problem is very acute in big towers and cities. Water clogging creates water pollution and it becomes the breeding ground for the mosquito which is responsible for many kinds of diseases.

But still now the production of polythene is going on and it has been used any way. Illiteracy is also one of the main reasons for unemployment. marketing and use of polythene to make our environment polythene free. If excessive to land area then it becomes curse. Population is a gift for a nation if she can utilize population. Moreover with the advancement of science and technology. but we can't come out from this circle and create New Hope for nation. So the effected step would be to create mass consciousness against polythene so that the people of our country avoid polythene unanimously. The rapid growth of population. So polythene becomes a threat for any type of plants. No plant grows on it. This condition is very acute in our country and it becomes a course for social life. Poverty grasps us in circle. At the same time alternative things must be provided so that people can easily use it without any second though. Our economy is based on agriculture. illiteracy. poverty. According to a great economist John Mill "A country is poor as it is poor". it covers the surface soil and goes deep into it. That's why people have less scope for employment. we have to 7 . Though we are in trap of unemployment. As physically fit person haven't proper scope to earn their livelihood so they are involved in illegal activities that destroys social harmony. less industrialization. It is a matter of great joy that the government has taken it as great concern and taken epoch making effort by banning polythene which is very thin in layer. agriculture based economy. system of education are mention able reason for unemployment. There are many reasons for unemployment. So polythene problem creates a have to our environment and it becomes the threat to the very existence of any being any this world. This can even loose the fertility of soil which results shortage of food that leads to famine. As a whole we have to make united effort to ban the production.not be vanished in soil. UNEMPLOYMEM AS A SOCIAL COURSE Unemployment means the state of being without any opportunity of earning one's livelihood. We have to avoid it whole heartedly. the use of manpower is decreasing for automation. We have less factories mills and industries.

The Govt. Poultry and hatchery through relevant organization. Every day we have to face the bitter experience of traffic jam which makes our life disgusting and intolerable. For that we had to face that bitter experience. BITTER EXPERIENCE OF TRAFFIC JAM Traffic jam is a common phenomenon in our country. Thus we would get rid of this curse. When we came near Ramna garden. We are informed that the large procession of election in favour of one candidate was moving on road. has conducted economic diplomacy to ensure foreign entrepreneurs.

It was noon and the sun was shining brightly. we had to face another traffic jam which extended up to Shahabag. To control our birth rate we have to educate ourselves. as Bangladesh are safely place for their investment. Our family went to attend a marriage ceremony at Mohammadpur area. As there were hundreds of vehicles stuck together we had to face traffic jam at every crossing point. It took two hours to reach our destination. Last Wednesday I had the bitter experience of traffic jam. It is very acute in big towns and cities. rickshaws and vans were seemed to stuck together.overcome this evil situation. training of farming. can do is to encourage self-employment for young people by sanctioning loans. we were sweating. would export this manpower to abroad.

In this way one hour gone by and there was no interest left to attend the ceremony. As the day was too hot. The most vital thing that our Govt. After one hour the traffic started to move.

The movement was strengthened by the support of labour organizations and unorganized labourers. 1880 when the workers of Mac comic Harvest Machine Company called on a strike in favour of their demands.

From the beginning of the industrial revolution the workers had to work for fourteen or even more hours a day.IMPORTANCE OF MAY DAY Development of a country depends on the united effort of all classes of people. 9 . Labourers are one of them who work day after day and contribute themselves in the development of a country. safety laws etc. The day reflects the greatest achievement of the worker and the growing demand for better working condition. There was a long history about the struggle of the working class people. Rather they had to coos many herd less in their journey towards destination. Police friend on the crowd of strikers and as a result one striker was died followed by undetermined number. But these opportunists which is actually in the category of basic rights do not come automatically. The terrible incident was happened on May 2. To observe the historic struggle of the workers may day is commemorated all over the worker. In 1880 a new movement came out with the issue of eight hours working time which is added with minimum wage.

I want to render my service for the betterment of our country. I desire that I'll take higher education in Social Science which will help me to study the problems property. Since the villagers are introduced to me earlier. I know that most of the villagers are poor. No worth will be accomplished without proper planning. I'll show great emphasis to forming 10 . I want to work for remaining these problems.S.MY FUTURE PLAN Success does not come automatically or overnight. I'll try to motivate other educated people to come forward to help me. After taking higher education I'll return to my native village and start my mission from there. To attain success we have to work hard with sincerity. To be a social worker. Then I'll start my work to upgrade their living standard. then I will teach them value education which will help them to infuse mortality. So my first work will be to remove illiteracy from my village. it will be helpful for me to guess their activities I know that most of the villagers are illiterate that causes a lot of other problems. They can make anything a success if they get proper guidance. I'll help them to realize the practical life. So they remain unemployed. I'll make a co-operative so that the villagers can save their money and can borrow as they require it. Then they will be able to control population growth by adopting family planning programmed. I want to have sound knowledge.S. some of them want to be engineer but I want to be a social worker. Especially I'll work with them to make them self employed. But we have to check out the plan to reach our destination. Illiterate masses are ignorant. So I have decided that after passing S. According to the nature of a man planning always varies person to person. I know that most of the villages are working class people so I may set up night school for them. As a grown up people I have my future planning. With the light of education I think the villagers will be able to shake off superstition which causes many problems. The young generation is the asset of a country.C I will be admitted myself into Dhaka University. They do not have their own land.C and H. When they will be able to read and write.

I have to face such experience often but it became worst at time of my last examination. Then we can hope for peaceful living with prosperity. make them group of seven or eight and help them to loan from co-operative. The bitter experience of load shedding is fell almost everywhere is Bangladesh. I think that the same condition often occurred in us. the increasing number of problems will be decreased day by day. According to their interest they will select their own field. It was the night before my "Mathematics" examination. THE BITTER EXPERIENCE OF LOAD SHEDDING Load Shedding is one of the real phenomena of country. The supply of electricity is not sufficient against demand. If this goes on the whole country is bound to collapses. This is all about my future plan which will direct me to reach my goal. Electricity went away at 7 p. But we have to try hard and soul to over come this problem. the emergency medical operation becomes stopped that led loss of life also. when I had just sat on the study table first of all I take the help of charger light but within hour it became inactive. It makes our life absolutely intolerable and boring. But I felt so hot before the burning candle that I can not express in words. That's why we have to face the bitter experience. Moreover a heavy strain came to my eyes and it started headache. So the government should think over the matter deeply and necessary step to check it as early as possible. I want to organize the young people. The people themselves will be sincere to improve their living standard. Because of load shedding the industrial production remain less. Then I had to lit wax candle. but in Dhaka city it is very acute. Just at midnight the electricity came when I had hardly any interest left to prepare myself for the next day. I could no more concentrate myself in that ill situation. It should not be allowed to continue the present manner. The young generation will get monetary help from the co-operative.m.fishing and poultry. It will be able to involve all the young or well bodied people in their respective works. 11 . if they are financially solvent.

I am well informed about the disaster that we are going to face for environment pollution. They understood me and started planting more trees.
