Who cares about children?



I HAVE two sons and both of them attend reputed government schools in the Rajshahi city. They were supposed to take part in their annual examinations on December 1 and, according to the original schedule, each had one exam a day. But due to the ongoing political crisis, their exam schedules have been disrupted and now they have to sit for two subjects in a day.
They go for their exams in the morning and after returning in the evening, they get so exhausted that they go to bed directly without even changing out of their school uniform. Often they do not even take meals properly.
As parents, we are also in tension since the law and order situation in Rajshahi has been deteriorating rapidly just like in other parts of the country.
Although today’s children are the future of the country, our politicians and leaders seem least bothered about their well-being.
