Dreams and hopes are a way of living with a positive attitude and approach towards life. Dream builds an inspiration in our soul to make things Possible brick by brick, be it big or small. Dream helps a person to live with status, respect, honor, dignity and with sense of self-satisfaction. Dream converts surviving into living. A dream breaks the fact “Survival of the fittest”. Dream inspires the feeblest person to build himself into a strong and fit one. All these feelings come out through having a dream, which sets ones soul free from any sort of agitation and hassle.
As a girl I grew up from my cildhood with many little tiny-little thoughts of dreams hoping to make them all come true someday. But in a society like ours and specially someone being away from the centre of the professional world and with very little scope towards making the dream come true, it becomes imperative for me to just let certain people know about this dream in my heart which may fill certain people’s heart with hopes and with new visions for tomorrow.
Bangladesh is a country blooming with rich talents in the school, college, university level. But another very unfortunate factor
that sets the country aback is the lack of professional and certified research centers and academies or institutes, lack of teaching facilities of the highest standards to compete internationally and lastly but most importantly scarcity of resources and funding initiated by the government or any private organization. This is again occurring due to the lack of interest of looking for Something beneficial for the next generation and due to be short of the idea itself!
I have a dream. But the idea kept locked in my tiny, little heart and found no infinitesimal hole to beam itself out till today.
It has been observed in our country that just after the school and mostly after the university level students find it very hard to
either get a good job or continue their post graduation tenure within the country territory. There are several reasons behind this scenario. (i) There is very little or hardly any scope for specialization in certain fields like: Bioinformatics, Biochemistry, Bio-technology, Aeronautics Robotics, Agricultural sector, Engineering management and many more. The most unfortunate
part is the country itself can never flourish in the R & D sector if it does not have any proper and specialized enterprise of its own. Why we are just floating on a superficial level by being blown with the air of latest trends and upgrading technology facilitated by supreme powerful nations? What about our own innovations and discoveries not just for few developed countries for earning foreign currencies, but for our benefits and that for the whole world?
People in our country have taken it for granted that this country of ours will never prosper or it will never be able to maintain some global standards in certain sectors. Well as for the scenario right now, the perception is relatively valid. But the picture can be changed though the efforts and the thrust needed is pretty much high and may seem impossible to many of course.
Establishments like a research institute will need a strong team of rich faculties, state-of-art research laboratories, research
tools and equipments, strong guided polices and strategies, to govern and systematize the whole administration and operation. It will need constant monitoring of the observations, of the procedures on board, support and accreditation by the government and last but not the least financial support and enough funding which are the backbone of any foundation.
As I have named it in my dreams it should be called BRIT: Bangladesh Research Institute of Technology. In a broader sense it should culture, nourish, and aid the existing graduating students to continue their post graduation, in Master’s or M.Phil through regular classes backed by the research faculty. In this way the current brainstorming will generate new ideas and innovative discoveries yet to be found and prevent flooding away of our talents to other developed countries for mere money and a good living.
This project in my mind if gets approved in the national and government level may have a good opportunity and scope to
stabilize Bangladesh for competing in the global arena. So what if we are poor in our finances? We are not that poor in our thoughts. So from today readers it is expected and hoped that at least few of you will be there in taking any sort of initiatives to place a stone in building this platform. Remember dear that it is not any fancy shoe, dress, suit, or a latest brand of perfume that every other person DREAM of .Very few dream about the steps of how to make this country more influential and very few stand alone begging for the first step to be taken for benefitting a crying nation like ours.
