      I just saw Banglavision news. It’s just so sad. There’s this one little boy crying and saying he lost everyone in his family — mum, dad, sisters, brothers, cousins, uncles, aunts, grans… So sad. Where will he go? He’s truly alone in this world. Another little beautiful girl didn’t cry at all but said her mum and dad are dead… I guess she doesn’t even understand what death is… Also on Sky News, Save the Children’s staff said about 15,000 people might have died…

      Bangladeshis all around the world are trying to raise fund for the cyclone victims. But I haven’t seen any senior government official visiting the affected areas. Where are those guys! Too busy to fight corruption and just forgot about the cyclone victims. We can’t rely on this government to help these people. Let’s do what we could do to help on our individuals efforts.

      I am sure they will go to the effected areas when media coverage is ensured later. This CTG is representing the Banani-Gulshan-Baridhara elite. To them, going to the effected areas is same as visiting a picnic spot. I may sound harsh but this is the reality. This is the perfect depiction of a root-less government. In fact, except CS KARIM, none of the CTG advisers look or sound any serious. Our chief adviser was attending some fair while SIDR was just reaching the Coastal area. I am really sick of this now, this so called civil society and army backed CTG.
