Govt got unnerved with 16th
jamuna news: BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir has alleged that the government has got unnerved as the Supreme Court's 16th amendment annulment verdict has exposed the 'country's real scenario'.
"The government has started feeling the heartburn as the observations of the 16th amendment verdict have depicted the country's real situation. Awami League general secretary on Friday said they're now passing through a bad time.
What has put you in trouble?" he said.
Speaking at a
miladand doamahfil on Saturday, the BNP leader also alleged that the ruling party leaders are now talking about conspiracy in fear of losing power.
Jatiyatabadi Jubo Dal arranged the programme at BNP's Nayapaltan central office seeking early recovery of its chairperson Khaleda Zia who underwent a surgery in her right eye in London on Tuesday.
Describing the apex court's 16th amendment verdict as
historicaldocument, Fakhrul said the Supreme Court has given some important observations in the verdict out of its sense of responsibility as the country is heading towards destruction.
He claimed that the observations of the verdict have demonstrated that the government has no longer right to cling to power. "It has been now in office only by force with the power of guns and pistols. The fact is that the government won't be able to stay in office, even for a second without guns and pistols."
The BNP leader said the country's people have been going through immense sufferings due to the government's failure to deliver on all fronts.
He alleged that ruling party student body Chhatra League attacked Chhatra Dal leaders and forced them out of Dhaka University campus as they went there to join a discussion. "This is the type of Awami League's democracy."
Fakhrul said the government is obstructing BNP's political programmes and squeezing
itsall political spaces only to suppress the party and hang onto power by force.

The identities of the deceased could not be known immediately.

jamuna news desk: More than 200 fossilised dinosaur footprints have been discovered in Maotai town of China, the media reported on Wednesday.
It is believed to be the largest cluster of Sauropod footprint fossils ever found in China dating from the early Jurassic period, Xinhua news agency reported.
Sauropods were a group of huge, plant-eating, four-footed dinosaurs with long necks and tails.
“The tracks were discovered by accident,” said Xing Lida, a dinosaur footprint expert with China University of Geosciences.
In the summer of 2013, workers in Maotai found a group of dents, which looked like footprints, on the surface of a huge rock when building a workshop. They did not know what they were.
This summer, when workers saw media reports of dinosaur footprint fossils found elsewhere, they contacted researchers and a team of paleontologists came to the site.
Xing said the fossilised footprints were left by Sauropods more than 170 million to 180 million years ago.
Several clusters of Sauropod footprint fossils had been found previously in China, though some contained few fossils and others had been severely eroded.
The new discovery was well preserved.
“It can help with research on biological migration, behaviour and evolution of these ancient creatures in the early Jurassic period,” said Xing.
Treat your style as a
jamuna lifestyle desk: A women-centric brand that deals in clothing, footwear, bags, jewellery and other accessories has its own identity which is being sustainable in its approach. With every product, they narrate an untold story that consumer can relate.
Shreyasi Pathak, stylist, Vajor.com, has been a part of the brand for the past two years. Knowing and sharing its aesthetics and values since the time it started, the language of the brand has become like her mother tongue. She believes in empowering buyers by making their purchases more meaningful. Excerpts:
Q What’s your approach when you first start styling someone?
To me, styling is not merely adapting to trends, but, is a way of expressing yourself in an individualistic manner. Your style, on the outside, should express who you are from the inside. Hence, when I am styling someone, I make it a point that I get to know that person. I try to understand their lifestyle, comfort zones and inhibitions. And this helps me in a way which is like a second skin to them. My job becomes way easier since the clothing is extremely versatile and body-friendly. And I utilise the accessories at Vajor to give people a bolder, more individualistic look without them having to feel there is too big a change happening.
Q Are there certain types of looks that photograph best?
Although there are various factors such as lighting, location, colour coordination, mood, etc, that need to be in sync to make any “look” look best, I would still like to state, from experience, that a look that is comfortable will make you feel confident. Hence, it will turn out to photograph the best. Even while experimenting, I would try with maybe colour, print, makeup or silhouette, but, I always make sure that the fit is comfortable. That way, there is nothing that a person would be so conscious about to lose their confidence. Aside from this, I am in love with the current tides of raw and real photographs. I feel proud when people embrace “imperfections” like freckles, stretch marks, grey hair, etc, and embrace them in a fierce manner. That is some progress in our industry I would say.
Q How do you like to use colour?
Colour sets the mood and emotion of the entire set-up. The background, props and temperature of lighting, together create the complete picture. Hence, I use colour to create the mood and that generally works by deciding what showcases the collection best. I have worked with both complementing and contrasting ones and yet to pick a favourite. Product styling aside, I would pick colours that represent their personality. Like at Vajor, we are all about earthy hues and prints which work really well with our “boho” style sense.
Q What’s your signature styling like and how would you describe your personal statement?
My signature style is subtle and statement. I don’t aim at grabbing all the (short-lived) attention with my styling. Rather I aim at creating something unforgettable. I am all about mixing prints and unusual colour combinations. There is no rule book as such. When I style a product/person, I work around their personality towards highlighting what’s important. My love for free-spirited, body-friendly silhouettes and my inclination towards earthy, muted colour tones found their own paradise here. Styling for the brand becomes mostly effortless since the taste matches so much. One thing that Vajor did gift me is, the love for prints! I was head-first into solids and today my wardrobe is spilling prints. One thing that all my favourite outfits have in common is big, bohemian earrings. You won’t find me without one ever.
Q What’s your philosophy on the high low-mix?
Popularised by off-duty supermodel and celebrity looks, high-low mix is a common phenomena. Although, my wardrobe mostly comprises of stand-alone pieces, I do delve into the trends now and then. My philosophy is to invest in statement pieces like a bag or a pair of denim, even a pair of heels for that matter and let them take the centre stage by teaming them with basics. However, I keep this practice to a bare minimum and invest in versatile, unique pieces instead. I believe less in fads and more in timeless fashion.
Q What styling tips would you give to a woman?
I have been a part of two projects with Vajor wherein we worked with various women around styling. They hailed from different professional backgrounds, age-groups and had a different body-type. My learning is what I would impart to anyone as style advice. Explore as much as possible to break the monotony, and more importantly to find what is most like “you”. Treat your style as a language and speak what you are through your outfits. Be individualistic instead of blindly following trends. Be body-positive, what you’re comfortable wearing is what you look and feel the most beautiful in.
