Rethought about journalism

‘Journalism is the only profession where no one needs any qualification!’, a government employee said this during our friendly chat. I could not protest. Two days back, I read an article on journalism where one of our colleagues argued for an institutional mechanism which could allow someone to work as a journalist. Continue reading

Good News Bad News

A TV station is telling that they are very shocked at the death of a bureau chief. On the other hand, an online newspaper is telling that ‘so called journalist’ has been killed.
When I saw the news at My TV, one of our new private TV channels, I was shocked and told that another journalist has been killed. But with in an hour I have got very bad impression about that man. According to Sheershanews, an online newspaper of Bangladesh, he was not a journalist. He used to express himself as a journalist. He never worked with any media house. According to police, the name of that man was in the ‘criminals list’. Continue reading

শ্রীলঙ্কার নির্বাচন ও গণমাধ্যমকর্মীদের ভবিষ্যৎ

বব ডিয়েটজ
সিপিজে ব্লগ থেকে ভাষান্তর : মেহেদী হাসান
এই নিবন্ধটি দৈনিক কালের কণ্ঠে ২৯ জানুয়ারি ২০১০ তারিখে প্রকাশিত হয়েছে।

শ্রীলঙ্কার নির্বাচন কমিশন ক্ষমতাসীন মাহিন্দা রাজাপাকসেকে প্রেসিডেন্ট পদে বিজয়ী ঘোষণা করেছে। তিনি প্রায় ৫৮ শতাংশ ভোট পেলেও শ্রীলঙ্কার রাজনীতি নিয়ে শঙ্কা কাটেনি। রাজাপাকসের নিকটতম প্রতিদ্বন্দ্বী সাবেক জেনারেল সরত ফনসেকা নির্বাচন নিয়ে মামলা করার হুমকি দিয়েছেন। ভোটারদের ভোটকেন্দ্রে যাওয়ার সুযোগ থেকে শুরু করে ভোট গণনা_প্রায় প্রতিটি পর্যায় নিয়েই তাঁর আপত্তি। ভোটের পর ফনসেকা অবস্থান নিয়েছিলেন কলম্বোর সিন্যামন লেকসাইড হোটেলে। এখানে তাঁর শরিক দলের নেতারাও জড়ো হয়েছিলেন, সাজিয়েছিলেন ফলাফলের টালি। শ্রীলঙ্কার কয়েকটি গণমাধ্যমের খবরে বলা হয়েছে, ফনসেকা দাবি করছেন, তাঁকে হত্যার ষড়যন্ত্র চলছে। নির্বাচনের ফল ঘোষণার পরপরই শ্রীলঙ্কার নির্বাচন কমিশনার দয়ানন্দ দিশানায়েক পদত্যাগ করতে চেয়েছিলেন। দয়ানন্দ সাংবাদিকদের কাছে বলেছেন, বিভিন্ন রাজনৈতিক দলের চাপের বোঝা তিনি আর বহন করতে পারছেন না। Continue reading

Where should we stop?

Day has started with a bad news. My office premise Bashundhara City got fire last night. This is not the first time. Second time- within six months. I got relief when I had heard that fire had not caused much loss. No one is injured except some journalists. I have also seen video footage of the aggressive security guards. They used sticks on the journalists. So far I can remember that the security guards had also done the same in the past. I thought that the journalist would call for movement against Bashundhara group as other news media was acting like enemy when the group invested in media sector. I may find some news about beating incidents at tomorrow’s newspaper. This has become natural here. Continue reading

Enayat, full of fun

Enayat, my friend!

Enayat, my friend!

Every morning Enayat knocks at my door. We both can understand that it is the time to go out. I think that he is very naughty and always full of fun. When I pass time with him, his jokes make me laugh. I had chat with him many times before coming to Berlin. I was eager to know about his country, Afghanistan. He gave me a short brief about their struggle against the Talibans.
