Dhaka University steps into 88



It's surely something to be proud of, isn't it? Yes, it is, but only when we take into account its age and past glory in leading the nation through many revolutions. Of course, DU has been producing scholars every year. But is that up to the nation's expectation? Are DU teachers sincere enough to teach their beloved students? Are the students attentive enough to their study? Aren't their concentration and devotion being distracted every now and then by political violence? Has any effective action on the part of concerned authority been taken yet to preclude rampant demonstration of political muscle power on the campus leading to couple of months' long unscheduled unbearable closure? Is there sufficient lab and research facility in all departments? The problems stated in these questions must be addressed as early as possible. Otherwise, the glory this very institution has achieved thus far will continue to diminish further and be overshadowed by its failure to uphold the quality of education.

We expect DU will gain the capability to bear the torch of knowledge and to guide this directionless nation towards prosperity.
