Shahin : You’re right. But is it happening only in Bangladesh?
Shuvo : No, I’ve seen in the newspapers that many countries are experiencing severe cold.
Shahin : But there are many countries which are experiencing severe heat too.
Shuvo : Yes, all these are happening due to climate change.

Shova : What do you mean? I can understand nothing. Please let me know in detail.
Eva : Life in the city seems to me very artificial. I’m bored of this city life.
Shova : What are the troubles you face?
Eva : Noise, crowd, dirt, smoke, bad smell and what not?
Shova : It means you prefer a dull, sluggish life among a set of illiterate people. There is no charm, no entertainment, no cinema, no theatre, and not even a good road.
Eva : But you’ve forgotten to mention the green fields and the streams, the smile of flowers in village. Though people are illiterate there, they’re simple, innocent and sympathetic.
Shova : It is poet’s dream!
Eva : But there is beauty of nature, peace and sacred happiness everywhere.
Shova : You must know that beauty does not help one in practical life. There are no doctor, no hospital, no good school in villages.
Eva : But you can have fresh food, milk, fish, and vegetables in villages.
Shova : Okay, live in your village and leave me for the city.
Eva : Certainly! However, I would appreciate if you visit my village. Thank you.

Topu : It is a great problem and it is increasing day by day.
Apu : You know that our girls and women are teased in schools, colleges, buses, trains, restaurants even in offices. Why is it occurring?
Topu : I think that modern technology is influencing their mentality. Because of satellite channels, the taste of the young people is being distorted.
Apu : Drug addiction is also responsible for it and sometimes, eve-teasers throw acid and even kill the victims.
Topu : Not only that, frustration failure in love, indifference to the religions teachings and moral decay are also responsible for it.
Apu : Right you are. I think that they have lack of consciousness.
Topu : Even educated women are being teased by educated men. Certainly, it is nothing but moral degradation.
Apu : As it is a social disease, we should remove it from our society.
Topu : Consciousness can play a vital role in this regard. People have to cultivate morality in themselves. Boys have to be well-natured.
Apu : Strict laws should be introduced and proper steps should be taken.
Topu : Actually, exemplary punishment can reduce eve-teasing.
Apu : Thanks for sharing your valuable ideas.
Topu : Thank you too.
