Journey : Dr Syed Md Zainul Abedin

Life moves with events of joy and pain
None can predict a time of constant pleasure
This may be compared with sunshine and rain
All such events together make our treasure

Some time ago went to a beautiful countryside
Enjoyed the flavor of paradise with dear one
Then started for home taking a rickshaw ride
Suddenly met an accident shattering my plan

My wrist was broken causing great problem
My fellow was terrified and started to scream
The brain could not find anyone to blame
A great flaw invaded into a pleasant dream

There was no scope to stop and lament
Something had to be done as quickly as possible
Rushed to a hospital for emergency treatment
Doctors declared the case was quite horrible

They stretched my hand to fix the bone
Great pain filled my eyes with tears
Doctors consoled me with friendly tone
And put white bandage and other gears

A captive life began with my tied hand
The power of writing was lost suddenly
Memories hovered around like flying sand
My mother’s face appeared frequently

It was a strange coincidence that fractures
Happened to me and my beloved mother
I could realize after many many years
How broken bones compelled her to suffer

But,her case was worse than my misfortune
She had to manage the whole family
She was compelled to work completely alone
Though it might be a cruel anomaly

I could rediscover my mother in my mind
Lack of her photograph gave me freedom
Despite our poverty she was very kind
Her thoughts and actions were uniform

Knowing about my passion in writing poem
She asked me to write on lovely sunbird
I selected many words and played with them
But failed to solve the challenge, it was so hard

The mishap took me to many hospitals
For my treatment and medical test
All those journeys were like flower petals
That enriched my experience offering the best

I met many patients with serious conditions
But they were quite patient and exchanged smile
I could learn from them how to control emotions
Overcome stress and adopt proper lifestyle

My parents left the world ending mission
We shall have to follow them eventually
Let’s evaluate our past to define vision
And embark upon another life prudentially

Silence : A Poem by Dr.Syed Md. Zainul Abedin

Silence seems to be gold
One should not be very bold
The world loves a dumb
It may be wise to remain calm

What else a humble person can do
When selfish people worship ego
Ignoring the call of humanity
They defy  vows and responsibility

It may be an offense to keep quiet
In the case of violation of human right
Tricks of players of the game of fortune
Thwart the good people to lament soon

Opportunists embrace stooge but ignore wise person
They can’t stand opponents with noble mission

 

HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation Bangladesh Programmes – By Dr. Syed Zainul Abedin

HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation envisions a world in which every woman, man and child lives a life in dignity and security, exercising self-determination, caring for the environment such that it meets the needs of the current generation as well as future ones. This vision is the basis for the organisation’s mission to help disadvantaged men, women and communities in developing countries.
HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation is one of the most experienced and largest development organizations in Switzerland. It came into existence on July 1st, 2011 with the merger of two organizations: Helvetas (founded 1955) and Intercooperation (founded 1982). As a politically and denominationally neutral association, HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation is supported by over 100,000 members and sponsors, as well as 12 regional groups of volunteers. Over 1,200 local and 60 international employees (mainly Swiss) are engaged in 30 partner countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Eastern Europe. HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation works in the domains of rural economy, water and infrastructure, environment and climate change, skill development and education, governance and peace.
In Bangladesh, HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation started working in 2000 at the request of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation to manage its Sustainable Land Use Programme. Since then, the portfolio has grown to include local governance, livelihoods, value chain and market development, in addition to the initial natural resource management mandate.
