ভারত সরকারের দ্বিতীয় গুরুত্বপূর্ণ ব্যক্তি হিসেবে পরিচিত প্রণব মুখার্জি ৬ মে   রবীন্দ্রনাথ ঠাকুরের ১৫১তম জন্মবার্ষিকী অনুষ্ঠানে প্রদত্ত বক্তব্যের কিছু কথা  বাস্তবতার নিরিখে বিশে¬ষিত হওয়া জরুরী । ঢাকার প্রায় প্রতিটি দৈনিক পত্রিকায় প্রকাশিত তার বক্তব্যের কিছু অংশ ছিল এমন ‘‘বাংলাদেশে আসা তার জন্য আনন্দের। একজন বাঙালি হিসেবে এখানে এসে তিনি মনে করেন, নিজেদের মধ্যেই এসেছেন। এটি সত্যিই একটি সুন্দর ঘরে ফেরার মতো অভিজ্ঞতা। ----- সীমান্ত দ্বারা বিভক্ত হলেও বাংলাদেশ ও ভারত অভিন্ন সাংস্কৃতিক ঐতিহ্য, রীতি, মূল্যবোধ ও উজ্জ্বল ভবিষ্যতের  প্রত্যাশার বন্ধনে আবদ্ধ।”

It is interesting for Bangladeshis to learn from many lessons about India's policy in Sikkim and how Sikkim eventually lost its independence to India. If we look at the global Indian policy in South Asia toward its neighbours, we see that ever since it became independent, it occupied Goa, Hyderabad, Kashmir, even Manipur in 1949 and in 1975 it swallowed Sikkim. It is now trying to swallow Maldives, Nepal and Bhutan. Please read the recent developments in those countries to see the eventual eclipse of those countries.

Ahmed Ben Bella interviewed by Silvia Cattori (Voltaire Network | 9 May 2006)

The Roman empire failed, because Romans exhausted manpower and resources in civil wars fighting amongst themselves for power. The British empire failed, because the British exhausted themselves fighting Germany in two world wars.

About a century ago, Kobi Nazrul composed a song, after the Turkish victory in Gallipoli, ’Kamal tuney kamal kia bhai’. Little did Nazrul know that Kamal was a crypto-Jew from Salonika? Most Indian Muslims including Nazrul were also not aware that Kamal was the man who largely succeeded in wiping out Islam from Turkey under the guise of modernisation. Now, Islam is on a rendezvous course with Lt. General Moinul Islam (LGMI), the number two in BD Army, touted to become number one soon. Someday a Bangladeshi poet may write,’Moinu tuney Moinu kia bhai’.  But, we cannot wait for the poet and so we need to look at Moinul Islam more closely, now.
