    This was a tragedy of national and international proportions. It was a grave and gloomy day in our short and turbulant national history. I was a ten year old boy living next door to Major Dastagirs parents and witnessed the trepedations of the young mother carrying the soon to be born Ghazzali, fondly known as Pomy. What a joy and sparkle it brought to his parents eyes the day he was born not to mention the cute little baby we got the opportunity play with. I have yet to come across a more humble, happy and respectful family. The entire family was an ever smiling phenomenon. And to learn that his father Group Captain Dastagir passwed away yesterday must be a blow too difficult to bear for the family. I pray for the eternal peace of the father and son.
    I want to know when the culprits will be brought to justice. Knowing the politics of Bangladesh I fear we may never live to see that day. This is a shame for this government and perhaps for future ones to come. But justice will prevail one way or another.
