On April 9, The Daily Star published a report titled “People's initiative to save village.” The report was based on an inspiring story involving people from a village in Hijla Upazilla, who took it upon themselves to protect their village from river erosion after having become fed up with the government's inaction.
Their dedication was exemplary. It shows how people can solve any problem they want, even without any assistance from the outside, as long as they remain united. I call upon the media to highlight more such initiatives to remind people of what they are truly capable of.
