Dohar: during the establishment of Tanshir
The sun of the twenty first century was yet to rise. The last bell of the twentieth century was ringing in every corner of the globe. The year was 1999. Dohar was going to be introduced as a developed upazila, not a developing one, in the national economic review. Remittance began to rise with a greater speed. Commercial banks began to open their new branches. These were practically reflected in Dohar achieving the first place in national remittance of 2007. Almost hundred percent of those remittances were used for home, women, luxurious cars and other homestead purposes. In the meantime Dohar took its position on the highest peak of ship owners’ list. That was exemplified with the establishment of undeclared dockyard at Narisha.
Dohar is geographically at the top of all upazillas as well. The greatest river of the country – the Padma – is flowing at the west-southern part of Dohar. Cold air is its youth, high waves are its (………..) and fresh sweet water is its (adulthood). On that river stands the Mainot Ghat, whose sunrise and sunset scenario defeats the beauty of Kuakata (the only sea beach in Bangladesh where both sunrise and sunset can be seen). Here exists the beauty of continuous tidal waves like those of Cox’sbazar.
But what is not there in Dohar? It is deprived of half a dozen of PhD holder, quality doctors, sufficient number of quality teachers, famous engineers and jurists. How can they be? There is yet to be established any reliable residential school or any standard college free from eve teasing, politics and smoking and which can facilitate separate batches for male and female students.
