The story on Sajid Iqbal was quite fascinating to read. Despite the continuous political demise of the country, I feel hopefulwhen I read such stories. Imagine the kind of progress that will happen if such intelligent and passionate young people were given the opportunities to make decisions for the country! True that we the young people have to deal with a lot, to grow intellectually and creatively in this country. Young people should continue to do such projects in spite of all the negative events in society. The only way to survive is that we keep on doings things we are passionate above, and stick to the friends who are equally crazy like us and find someone in life who is equally crazy. For me these are my survival tactics.

Being a leader- not being on the forefront
Leadership programmes are not only about activities, but also facing one's vulnerabilities along with one's strengths. I once took part in a week long leadership programme outside Bangladesh, where students from all over the world took part. We did activities and participated in group discussions to talk about some of the most pressing matters in the world. I met so many different kinds of people from ethnic, racial and sexual minorities. Leadership is not about glory and being on the forefront all the time. It is about connecting with other human beings.

A Young Voice of Bangladesh
Thanks to Star Campus for presenting a story on such a patriotic person like Armin Zaman Khan. By representing Bangladesh in Durban Conference 11, she has already elated us with inspiration. Though she is a female student living in Bangladesh, where women are still treated unequally by society, she is working with great sincerity for the country's advancement. Her story is inspiring to a lot of young women out there. She has indicated the loopholes of the discussions that developed countries carry out without consulting other countries. Her intention of acquiring experiences is an effective attempt to raise awareness among the young generation. As a student of her age, I feel very proud of her.

Technology and Net Gen!
The story is about one of those things which we realise is important in our daily life and do not really pay much attention to. The incident Asrar Chowdhury mentioned about inviting a group of people to an important class via facebook message is a regular activity nowadays. Even 4 to 5 years ago, we used to call people for such purposes, but now all we have to do is post a comment in a closed group on Facebook. I completely agree with the writer when he said that the internet plays an integral role for students' assignments or home work, because I as a student would be completely helpless to finish any of my school projects if my net was down.

Prep to present
Dressing up for presentations can be a nuisance, especially if you have to dress in formals. Who likes to wear saris and formal shirt (tucked in) and trousers in the heat that soon will capture Dhaka? But when articles are written to give tips, dressing up in formals can seem fun. Personally I don't think it's wise to spend a lot of money behind outfits just for presentations, but as the writer pointed out that Doja can be a great place to shop. We should take our friends with us while shopping, so that the whole process of preparing for the presentation seems less painful.
