Bangladesh: On politics and people

Salam Dhaka on involvement in politics being influenced by the impact on survival. And the answer to the question – What's in it for me? “The people have taken responsibility of their destiny. They do not expect anyone to be their great saviour. Democracy, constitution, human rights are all buzzwords for the guys like me with a fast computer connection and a stomach full of food. It makes great political commentary but has to relevance to the people. “
