People need to CHILL the eff out. Go sip on a thanda RC cola.

Dhaka is a great city to many of us here because of the reasons Rabz mentioned.

Still, it has an exorbitant amount of problems that need to be addressed, starting with the very nature of its citizens.

If I recall correctly, ZeeshanM had a post from a while ago where he basically ripped on the hypocritical, two-faced nature of most Bangladeshis (too lazy to retrieve it - a little help, ZM?) Most of Dhaka's citizens complain about inactions by the government and other citizens that lead to the problems that plague the city - but when its time to do their own part, they shy away! (Don't try to change my opinion on this - I am sure there are some of you out there you don't fit this description - but from my experience this is overwhelmingly true! This includes members of my own extended families and friends and other relatives.)

"Parasite" was a good word, in my opinion, because that's what we are most of the time. We all want to take and take but give nothing in return. Bitch and whine at the government all you want - but ultimately, we'll see, that the people in the government are just like us - only that they hold more power.

So pay your fair taxes. Obey the traffic laws that you blame others of breaking. Don't dump your trash in the streets while complaining about the smell from other people's garbage. Don't pretend you aren't home when government officials come by to license your TVs etc. Do not have a lengthy debate about the evils of corruption, only to ghush your way out of a problem (while rationalizing that ei deshe ghush chara kichu hoina.) Do NOT be a hypocrite.

Citizens are the face of a city - not its lakes or buildings or gardens. Dhaka will change when we will change.

I guess if there is any one that fit's Mona's description of parasite, it would be the aforementioned people in your post.

Magic boy, peace is not a magic. Peace is very expensive, it is a process itself that needs well determined striving and innovation to get it, even it needs more foresightedness and hard work to retain it, otherwise it is very fragile or even does not exist in true sense.

I think BC should lock this thread or remove the contents that many members have objected. I do not understand forum rules- in that, BC bans members who make offensive post to individuals, but Mona’s post was gross offensive post.

Having said that, Mona has sincerely apologised and showed remorse, so should be forgiven.

The thread should be locked because it makes poor and humiliating representation about us.

Mona apu It's OK. I don't want to attack you personally. I just expressed what I thought. You've already apologized, it's alright. May be your point was logical or you had no intention to hurt others feelings but as you've seen the responses your message was not clear.

Mona I didn't expect you to apologize. You are getting weak, must be valentines day syndrome. Doesn't this remind you of the "bangy" episode.

First of all you didn't say anything offensive, you gave us your opinion as to what is wrong with dhaka - majority of its residents are of middle class. And the actions of middle class has a big toll on this city. Majority of us here in Bangla cricket, with the exception of few are from a middle class family but only few took it personally as if you were talking about them. Does Rabz, Nocturnal and HWG own dhaka? or represents dhaka middle class shomittee? What is up there pacha I don't know to have an outcry like that. Just because they live in Bangladesh, they think they have more right to it than we do. A major part of Bangladesh's freaken economy is running on foreign remittence - money from hard woring people like us. So STFU all you dhakaites. We contribute more for the wellbeing of the city than you energy hogging, generator using, AC-maxing parasites that make the city unlivable. Yes it is YOU living in that city HOGGING the energy creating a crisis (just an example) and then you have the audacity to foul mouth us money providing hard bangalis on this forum. Shame on you!! I rather you say "thank you very much".

Mona is right and it's a shame that few of you forcing her to apologize. She criticized her own people for destroying the city she learned to love and hate. Because there is a problem - there is an energy and water crisis. There is sanitation problem. There are traffic problem. Responses like those "we are perfect, it's other ppl that causing the prob" will take us no where but to dustbin.

And you know there are a lot of parasites in this forum as well.. hogging the badwidth without providing any ad money. PPl that browse from bangladesh - whose value to google ads is in the negative dollars. They are bandwidth hoggers.... and provides nothing for foreign businesses.
