Dear Friends ( Especially those who are old enough to remember 1986) let’s try to go back twenty years ago and project the following things for Bangladesh to have in twenty years,

    GDP growth rate will be > 6 % for years in a row.
      Bangladesh Cricket team will be trying to reach the semifinals of world cup cricket.Nearly 50% of adult population in Bangladesh will carry a mobile phone device and will actively SMS each other from all the remotest villages in Bangladesh. 
      The majority of urban middle class will have a family motor vehicle.
      A majority of Bangladeshi youngsters will have access to a PC and internet.
      Nearly a dozen private TV and radio channels, all beaming 24 hour of quality news and entertainment.
      Bangladesh will be one of the countries with highest number of  vernacular newspapers published online.

      Bangladeshi’s all over the world will be hooked to 24 hours of live programming and online newspapers from Bangladesh.
      Bangladeshis will be one of the fastest growing immigrant communities in North America and Europe. You’ll hardly be able to walk a New York or Toronto Street without bumping into a Bangladeshi.
      Military will force a change in government only to give the key to the throne to a group of accomplished academician,  technocrats  and help them better govern the country.

      I’ll be what I am now.
