Ensure healthcare for all
One of the urgent human needs is healthcare; in absence of which life may have to endure a greatly worrisome state. People living on the fringes are commonly deprived of access to proper healthcare and have to undergo deficiency of this prime need. Money cannot be the master of getting healthcare benefits, rather healthcare should be flattened and equal even for those who have no money to afford it. There should be no disparities marking social strata and class cult, and wealth in this regard.
The pandemic C-19has brought to light the prevailing drawback of the country's entire health systems where corruption and profit mongering tendencies were found in a rampant nature. We have ever come to know about the giant healthcare fraud during this dire time.
Lifesaving medicines, vaccines and diagnostics should be considered as public goods and essential healthcare services should be equal for people from all concerns. No individual, community or society is left behind in accessing life-saving healthcare commodities and fundamental benefits which are entitled to. We, the commoners, foster a sincere hope to have well-managed healthcare opportunities equally for all.

Common room for female students
Cumilla University is famous for its red soil and green campus. University students are going through various shortages with some achievements. The ratio of male and female students is almost equal in each faculty. While there is a central mosque for boys to pray, there is no common room or prayer facility for girl students. A small room is provided in the science faculty but not in other faculties. So, dissatisfaction is noticed among female students. Because they could not perform Zuhr and Asr prayers on time.
Besides, a student needs a common room to rest and refresh. But, due to a lack of provisions, female students have to stand in front of the window of the classroom or basin to be freshening up.
The authorities including the dean of the university have been informed regarding for several times, but there is no result. In such a situation, I am seeking the kind attention of the Honorable Vice-Chancellor of the university.
