Death on the road
x Rajib is no more. Although we are sorry now, we will eventually forget him and the thousands of departed souls like him, as a matter of human nature. There have been three similar instances reported after the tragic April 3 incident — the event which caused the loss of the hand of the deceased in the Dhaka metropolitan area. Rajib’s accident — which later led to his untimely death — happened simply because the bus drivers were racing. Rajib was a mere victim of this recklessness. We may call it an accident, but don’t you think it was an inevitable consequence, considering the driver’s actions?

We live on gravel roads that stretch like ribbons along pasture land dotted with black cattle. As we kick up dust beneath our pickup tires heading out to a chore or to meet up with a neighbor, we take for granted how these roads were built and why they’re here. Because these days we’re in a rush, driving faster than we should past newly made plans and history – some hidden and some still standing, weathered wood on crumbling foundations. I remember a time when these roads were quiet. It was where my cousins and I would skip like characters from “The Wizard of Oz” down the middle of the scoria without a care. The only vehicle to meet us was our great uncle driving with his windows down or my mom looking to borrow some sugar from a neighbor. If we were lucky it would be the Schwan’s man hauling the promise of orange push-up pops, and we would put the game on time-out and sit on the front porch trying to get to the bottom of the treat before it melted … [Read more...] about Kicking up dust on the road of lifeCOMMENTS#LivingAn ounce of prevention…Dakota Handcrafters: Name: Jim DignanOn the ranch, being a good neighbor means so muchTree leaf galls, what can I do?Spring 2018 decor: A happy and relaxed refuge at homeI wonder when we’ll look back and say ‘Remember when?’Trump claims success in Syria, but chemical weapons remainWolves goal against Houston: ‘Shock the world’Thanks, partnersRaise Your $80,000 for the National DebtStorm blasts central US with snow, ice and wind, killing 3He’s a Twins scorer and an obstetrician.
