Bottomless basket transformed into Export Powerhouse (according to the New York Times), JP Morgan included it in its Frontier 5 list, Goldman Sachs described as one of the N11 countries, UN awarded it as the Role Model of MDG achievements, McKinsey and Company Termed it as Next China, PwC forecasted as it would be the 28th Largest Economy of the World by 2030 and 23rd Largest Economy by 2050. All of the above statements and forecasting were made to describe economic development potentials of Bangladesh. World famous scholars and institutions are considering Bangladesh as a promising economic power in near future. But what we Bangladeshis are observing in it? We see it as a land of challenges and problems like traffic jam in the road, clashes and cheatings in the politics, corruption in the bureaucracy, injustice and inequalities is everywhere in the society. Therefore our rich people educate their children in the western countries, frequently visiting foreign hospitals for medical care, migrating to Canada, Australia and other developed countries to have a peaceful breath with respective families. Brain drainage is one of the oldest challenge of this land. Bangladeshi scientists are doing thousand times better performance in abroad. Similarly our researchers, professors are well accepted in respective fields by the foreign institutions. What is wrong here to perform? What is the harm here to live? Why future is cloudy here after so many forecasting by world famous scholars and institutions? Who are responsible for this cloudy situation? Why we are not able to retain our best brains here to work for this land?
