Traffic jam is almost a regular phenomenon of the big cities and towns which is the rapid result of rapid growth of population and the increasing number of population. The population is growing rapidly and the increased number of vehicles is needed for the movement and transport of the people. Most often this problem occurs where the roads are very narrow in a congested area. Narrowness of the roads, unlicensed and uncontrolled vehicles, reluctance to obey the traffic rules by the drivers, overtaking tendencies etc. are some of the main causes of traffic jam. In big cites, like Dhaka, the unlimited rickshaw that ply on the roads and streets is another cause of it.
As most of the rickshaw pullers are illiterate and ignorant of traffic rules, most of the time they break traffic rules and cause traffic jam. Again most of the drivers of our country are not willing to obey the traffic rules. They drive their vehicles at their sweet will, which is another cause of creating traffic jam. Wrong paring of vehicles and illegal market beside the roads are another cause of traffic jam. It kills our valuable time and lags us behind.
It causes a great suffering to the dying patients carried in an ambulance. The students and the workers are not able to attend their destination in time due to traffic jam. So we want to get rid of this problem. Well planned spacious roads, one way movement, strictly imposed of traffic rules are mainly needed to overcome this problem. Sufficient and honest traffic police are also needed to control it. By doing all these steps we can lead a happy life without traffic jam.
A street beggar is a person who begs and earns his livelihood in a street is called a street beggar. He is a common face to us who is seen sitting, standing or lying and begging for a coin. He generally chooses a bus stop, railway station, over bridge, a launce or a steamer terminal or a market place where many people gather together. He is seen with patched up and torn clothes and his hair also seen unbrasehd as well as without oil.
His clothes are very dirty and bad smells emits from his dirty clothes. Some of the street beggars are blind, lame or crippled. He has a bag hanging his shoulder or a plate with his hand. When he sees a passer by passing beside him, he stretches out his hands or his begging bowl for a coin. He tries to draw the attention to the passers-by by raising various kinds of voices and sometimes reciting some verses from the holy Quaran.
If someone gives him a coin, he prays for him. Some passers by passed him being disturbed his loud voice. He begs from dawn to dusk and returns to home whatever he gets. With his small income he supports himself and his family. He often passes his nights under the open sky. So the life of street beggar is not pleasant at all. So, we should rehabilitate them and stop encouraging them. So that he can lead a normal life with honour and dignity. And we should make it possible for the street beggar to take part in economic activities.

My mind was troubled with fear that I might not be quite free and easy in their midst. But when my friends received me cordially, all of my fears and troubles were dispelled. My heart began to beat first when I was taken to meet the headmaster. But his smiling and gentle words put me at ease. He used to inspire me to do well in the examinations. After that time he loved me very much and he became my best guide. Though I left the school I couldn’t forget him. I feel very much excited when I remember my childhood memories.
