My Dream 2021 (Development thoughts of Dalits)
Our Independence will complete its full circle of 50 years in 2021. The people of Bangladesh will celebrate the golden jubilee of Independence in 2021. In this connection, the present government has declared Vision 2021 which aims at fulfilling basic rights, alleviating poverty, developing food and nutrition, health care and housing.
The only reason why the marginalized and excluded Harijan community has been left out of the mainstream planning of development is that the government lacks sufficient information about them. We hope that the golden jubilee of freedom be observed in 2021 in a poverty and discrimination free Bangladesh with all backward population of the country including socially deprived and extreme poor Dalit/Harijan community. We have been encouraged to publish this book entitled ‘My Dream 2021; Dalit community on the completion of 50 Years of Independence’ with a view to creating public opinion and bringing the problems and aspirations of the Dalit community into limelight for the law makers and the common people of this country.
This book features the write-ups of the Dalit students focusing on 2021. Responses from the people have been really inspiring for us. But we humbly regret our failure to accommodate all the write-ups for our limited space of the book and repetitive nature of the writings.
