Re: [] Nuclear Power Plant

Zia ur Rahman started exporting young Bangladeshis to work in the airport lous all over the world. Cheap labour export is the only export of Bangladesh now either straight or working in Garment factories. This is eulogized as Janashakti. Now here we find Physics professors heading Nuclear Power plant and espousing the employment of Physics graduates. Do they have any idea that how many theoretical physics students get job or how many engineers are needed? Just a dream without any investigation is what these people from abroad are laying out. When all the countries are shrugging off nuclear power plants then Bangladesh dares in. What a travesty, they do not have any educational and scientific preparation. It will end up outsourcing the entire management and engineering to foreign consultants like Russians. Who will take care when Rooppur becomes Fukushima? What are the preparations to meet such eventualities? Bangladesh at this stage do not have PMP managers or Prince 2 quality enforcers even. 

But Bangladesh had the best possibility of wind power and solar power generation. Why are not those engineered? The motive is suspect. It is the same motive the present Indian government is along. There is someone behind. This eastern part of Indian Peninsula would become the worst possible espionage hub of the super powers. We are going back very fast to the same old bi-polar cold war days. And poor Bengalis on both sides of the border would be pawns in that game, because some professor somewhere likes to be praised in some western podium... These are two countries who take pride in ensuring disasters and mass murders to don a smile with the sly imperialists in the world....

Indian Students have been attending Russian Universities and Colleges for more than last two decades. Medium of Education has been English for them, not Russian though they also learn Russian. College Fees are not much but the problem is, BD had banned English in Schools. It has been hurting BD.
I was on a Business Trip to Moscow a few years ago and had met some Indian Medical Students there, going back home on Vacation.

Wish Bangladesh and its students of nuclear physics a great success in adopting and mastering the technology. A prosperous Bangladesh is to the advantage and benefit of all its neighbours. Congratulations to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasinaji and all the progressive and positive thinking people of Bangladesh. God bless!
