Changing our attitudes
A DAILY poll published on a local English-language newspaper showed an alarming 15 per cent of the people who have participated in the poll supporting that Tk 1 lakh compensation for workers in accidents or disasters is justified. It’s very disheartening when the government and the people responsible do not take any worthwhile actions, but what about the general public? Have we really become so used to seeing and reading about these disasters that now we have almost become immune to any sort of compassion, and have reached the point where we basically think that a person’s life is worth a mere amount of money? What would our reaction have been if we were standing in their shoes and have lost our beloved ones and suffered from severe injuries? It’s time we changed our attitudes and act more humane.
