Sayem is my friend. I know him from my IUT life, that’s quite a long time. We studied in the same department and in the same year. Even our rooms in the dorm were in the same floor. He is a Lecturer & Assistant Proctor of Stamford University Bangladesh. He is a soft spoken nice guy. He is so gentle that he tolerates trouble for others and never complains anything unless it is unbearable (I’ve seen that earlier). Now, ‘that’ Sayem, my friend Sayem is facing troubles for almost 6 months and which is now seemed to be tremendously unbearable for him and his family.
In Sayem’s neighborhood, there are some uncovered dustbins which his neighbor-apartment-folks use in a daily basis (to dump their wastes). And those fetidly dustbins can alone ruins anyone’s life, in this case they are ruining Sayem and his family. Moreover those dustbins are put by his neighbor-apartment-folks just beside his bedroom. Just imagine how tough life beside fetidly dustbins can be!
Well … after living beside a hell (almost), Sayem and his wife complained several times to the apartment folks as well as the ‘Secretary’ of that apartment building. When Sayem and his family found out that the secretary of that building is Mr. Munir Hasan, they hoped for the betterments. Why did they hope so? Because Mr. Munir Hasan is a renowned personality of Bangladesh, as he is involved with BDOSN and General Secretary of Math Olympiad in Bangladesh (if I am not wrong he is affiliated with the most popular Bangladeshi daily newspaper Prothom Alo too). That’s why when Sayem and his wife complained to him, they thought their nightmare was going to be ended. It was six months ago. But nothing happened after that. Sayem and his wife kept complaining for the past six months but Mr. Munir Hasan did not take any steps. It seems that, he does not take their complains seriously.
So as an alternative steps Sayem is trying to let other people know about his miserable condition because of Mr. Munir Hasan. He wrote a note (with the picture) and shared it via Facebook. So that other people can also request Mr. Munir Hasan to take Sayem’s complains seriously into his account. I am quoting Sayem’s complete note as it is:
Assalamualaikum. Hope u all are passing a very good time on the occasion of holy Eid-ul-Azha. But may be I will not. Let me explain the matter that will help you to understand. I need some suggestion from all of you regarding the issue.
The pictures attached with this message is taken from my bedroom. It shows a dustbin and this is just beside my bedroom. And this dustbin belongs to the Sheltech Apartments that is just beside my home. It consists of 66 flats. So, you can imagine how much waste material is produced there every day. Every moment we have to suffer a lot due to this. It is very difficult for us to stay in our bedroom even in our home.
The most astonishing part is that, the Secretary of this big building is Mr. Munir Hasan, General Secretary of Math Olympiad. He is a very renowned person and I think many of you know him. He was a teacher of BUET and also an ex-buetian. We often see him in newspapers for his good activities and contribution to the nation. He is very much close to Dr. Zafar Iqbal Sir. My wife and I knocked him several times from last 6 months for this problem. But, yet he hasn’t solved the issue. After knocking several times, he just managed a polythene temporarily to cover the wastage and promised us to solve the issue permanently. But where is that solution? We gave him an example of Prince Tower (just opposite to Sheltech Tower) about their waste management. We tried several times to contact him but he refused.
Now, my question is how can we get relief from it? Is it a sign of civilization from a renowned person like Mr. Munir Hasan? Holy Eid-ul-Azha is knocking at the door. We are very anxious about the wastage in this occasion. It is tough enough for us to bear the smell every day. Can you imagine what will be during Eid-ul-Azha?
We tried a lot to solve the problem but failed due to lack of cooperation from Mr. Munir Hasan. For that reason we need some help from you. Please suggest us what we can do in a peaceful way.
Thanks to all.
It is really sad to find out that the remarkable persons (at least whom we thought as remarkable) are not that much remarkable in their day to day life. I hope that, Mr. Munir Hasan will be sympathetic enough to take care Sayem’s complain and treat his neighbor as a ‘true neighbor’ as well.
If you read this post and if you want to help Sayem, then please share this post with others. And if you have a personal relationship or friendship with Mr. Munir Hasan, then please request him to take care Sayem’s complain seriously. Also you can email Mr. Munir Hasan requesting him to consider Sayem’s complain as soon as possible.
