|Regarding Mrs Mohua Huq`s `article`:|
I don`t know if the webmaster will allow this post, I hope he/she does since this is not meant to be a personal attack.
I read her writing, and must admit was bitterly disappointed. I understand her frustration and would love to sympathise with her, however, one nagging question is stopping me from doing so. Is it ok for her to demand special treatment?? no doubt she would and probably deserves to get a special mention every time BBP is mentioned for what Mr. Huq has done for this organisation. but does that give her a right to be treated specially? Is this a typical bangali tendency? Why do we always want something special in return?
I was present at the mela and watched the cultural function quite eagerly. If I am not mistaken Mrs. Huq`s group was on stage for no less than 25 minutes. now if she was promised a 35 minute segment, is it so wrong for the organisers to request her to cut it short when the whole programme could have been in jeopardy??
Being the `guardian` should she not have realised that there are `PAID ARTISTS` waiting to perform? Once again I completely understand why this incident would leave a rather bitter taste in her mouth but in all honesty I think BBP deserves a bit of leniency from her as well. I guess where I have an issue with Mrs. Huq`s response is the distasteful way she has decided to blast again the whole organisation. It might have been a `Tikto Obhiggota` for her but it would have been a hell of a lot more TIKTO for the thousands who were promised a performance by Kaya and Himangshu Goshhami if they did not perform. On the same note I must say I was immensely embarrassed and was extremely angered by the rather rowdy behaviour from portions of the crowd during their performance. It truly hurt me to see such behaviour.
She also mentioned Faisal in her little piece of bitterness. I am a close friend of this immensely talented young gentleman and know how much hard work he has put into organising the cultural program. I know he fell short in some parts, I know he has not managed the time issue well at all (for which I guess some of the artists are guilty as well). But Mrs Huq should know this, she should know how hard it is to organise one of these melas, she should know how many sleepless nights these guys spend, how many days and nights these guys `waste` organising this mela neglecting their families and loved ones. Mrs. Huq should have known better. She should have spoken to Dr. Razzaq and BBP in private to express her disgust, which she is entitled to.
I am DISAPPOINTED by her response... the youth of Sydney certainly expects more from our elders.. more understanding, more respect for one another.. more caring and loving attitude towards the youth who are trying their best to keep the bangali culture alive amongst themselves.
