If you are 25 years old now, another 65 years to become 90 years old. I do not expect BD can develop at that point. It is now an underdeveloped or Least Developed country. The next phase, the "Developing" stage takes a very long time and for many countries, this stage does not end at all.

BD is behind in industrializing and it cannot design and manufacture mechanical/ electrical machines. Copy-pasting of many easy technology products is a good sign of progress. However, BD cannot even do it.

So, when do you expect BD will start manufacturing machines, engines, motors, parts, and components in commercial scale? Is it in the next 65 years? Hopefully, but it will still remain in the developing stage.

Note that China is still in the economic developing stage although it can build its power plants (also nuclear) and all other plants, mills, and factories with its domestic technology and manpower.

How about our Golden Bangladesh? Can it build by itself its power stations, fertilizer/ chemical plants, or steel plants in another 65 years? I doubt it. At least, I do not find any symptom that it can do such things.
Hopefully we're wrong and BD somehow magically gets better leadership and actually starts to become developed via industrialization.

Yes, you are right about the leadership thing. The now industrially superior country Germany did not come to the front until Wilhelm II (Friedrich Wilhelm Viktor Albert) came to take the reign of Germany. He is called Kaiser because it means Emperor in German.

Germany was called the sick man of Europe and was 100 years behind England in terms of industrialization in the 1880s. Because of his continuous efforts, Germany has become what it is today based on which Germany fought two World Wars though lost.

But, it still remains the same strong economy only because of heavy industrialization that started during the time of Kaiser in the 1890s.

Similar things happened in Japan after the Meiji Restoration in the 1860s. With industrial power at its disposal, it fought also two world wars.

So, it is always the group of leaders of a country that matters. Do you expect BD to produce such a group of leadership? We are the most corrupt people.

Not only corrupt - they are also mostly uneducated goondas.

This is the meritocracy we have. If the top person (i.e.) Hasina depends on goondas to hold on to power, then how can we qualitatively compete with other nations?

Look at four years of trump and where it took the US. Thugs were so close to running the country. Rule of law started to erode.

I am sorry - but China actually has better leadership, at least their top bureaucracy is a meritocracy, which is well proven.

One can argue all one wants, but look at where India is going, with thugs running the country in successive administrations. The finance minister they have alone (Nirmala Sitaraman) is a case study in abject failure of competence. Garbage in, garbage out.

Now think ten times worse. That is what we have as far as leadership.

Whatever progress is happening in Bangladesh, is happening in spite of the govt., not because of it.

Only a handful of people do their jobs. Planning Minister MA Mannan and Energy Minister Nasrul Hamid come to mind. Those two ministries are crucial. Under Nasrul Hamid - Power output of Bangladesh increased from 10289 MW to 21419 MW. He is a charismatic leader AFAIK.

This is limited knowledge of course, I could be wrong.

Both come from educated families and not from uneducated goonda cadre background.

Worst f##king team in the world

Members of BFF should be fired ASAP
If fired, you will have to replace them with others. Are there many? Or, is there a system in place to train players from the very childhood that a man can see in other countries? It is the same for the members of the BFF.

Football or any games or operating a team or a country all depends upon the mindset of the country's population. We lack qualities such as discipline, perseverance, commitment, and all other qualities that create a good player or a good nation.

৭১ এ "বিধবা পল্লী" আর ফিলিস্তিনী পত্রিকায় বাংলাদেশের সাপোর্টের পোষ্ট শেয়ার করায় পিঙ্কুদের পশ্চাতদেশে আগুন জ্বলে উঠসে। ব্যান না খাওয়ার রেকর্ডটা ক্লিন রাখতে চাইছিলাম, দিল নষ্ট কইরা। 😑 একই জিনিস করসে যখন @Black_cats একই টপিকে একটা থ্রেড পোষ্ট করসে। অন্য সময় থ্রেড লক করে, কিন্তু এইবার একেবারে রিমুভ করে দিছে।
Not surprised tbh.

Japan excelled in almost every field. It is because of its people's nature of perseverance and the habit of being meticulous. Japan developed its industrial technologies and started producing industrial and consumer goods after Meji Restoration in the 1860s. It was certainly not like today. But, the world was not also like what it is today.
You are absolutely right @bluesky bhai. This meticulous, focused and persevering attitude is (without rare exception) so absent within Bengalis and Bangladeshis, while it is so common among the Japanese.

I had observed this firsthand when working with some Mizuno buyers in Bangladesh (apparel sourcing division) in my very young days. They routinely put in ten hour days and I had to as well as a senior manager. They worked at a slower deliberate pace though - compared to American workers.

I was also lucky to get basics of Ishikawa diagram fault finding method through collaborating with one of the experts. Spent a few valuable weeks with these people. Good memories.

The Japanese garment inspectors have specialized eyes. They find fault with tiny mistakes to improve the quality. It is the same within Japan as well and they show the same methodology when ordering goods from a foreign country.

I have noticed BD producers just do not like the Japanese buyers.

The Japanese are too meticulous that you will lose interest to get orders. But, once you get orders (small orders the 1st and 2nd time) and you give them quality, it will be the starting point for you to make your new fortune.

The Japanese buyer would keep on giving you orders and introduce other buyers and certainly raise the price. They are unlike Western buyers who keep on changing the outsourcing. Japanese stick to the quality and will stick to the party they select.

* By the way, one Japanese had shown me the sewing lines in BD-produced garment piece go zigzag from one hole to the next one with a little angle.

MG motors is being brought to Bangladesh by Rancon Motors. These have many luxury features (all controls are power-operated for starters). The company is Chinese however these are also assembled in other places including Pakistan.

http://mgmotor.com.bd/home/MGZS/

They are already offering Electric SUVs. Here is a review by a ten year old. :-)


The thing surprisingly enough, looks like a Hyundai Tucson...

I would like to ask you about two political Hooligans. One is the former Dhaka Mayor, Khoka. The other is the current Obaidul Quader, another Hooligan.

In my opinion, the former was a low-class thief who had no ability to think beyond the wall of the room he was sitting. However, Obaidul Quader is not exactly a thief although he used to be a muscleman. I believe he has a more constructive mind in comparison. He talks and acts forcefully but he is quite an active man.

BD needs personalities like Sher-e-Bangla, Khwaja Nazimuddin, or Suhrawardy. But, these days, highly acclaimed people cannot and do not come to the fore to do politics or lead the country.

Politics has become too dirty in the country for any of their likes to come forward. @Atlas is fond of VP Noor, but he is just in his prime and he knows nothing about national economic development or to run an administration. Our two national Lady leaders are also the same. Both came from the kitchen to lead the country. They do not have the experience even to maintain a file but have become the PMs of a wonderful country, named BD.

I hope, VP Noor and similar others come gradually to the fore and in the meantime keeps on learning examples of other developed countries under which process each of them developed.
