Bengali to English: Independence Day observed in New York
General field: Other
Detailed field: Media / Multimedia
Source text - Bengali
২৯ মার্চ শনিবার সন্ধ্যায় নিউইয়র্ক সিটির ব্রম্নকলীনে উদযাপিত হলো বাংলাদেশের ৩৮তম স্বাধীনতা দিবস। মূলধারার ডজনখানেক রাজনীতিক, আইনজীবী, সমাজকর্মী এবং নিউইয়র্কে বাংলাদেশের কন্সাল জেনারেলের সরব উপস্থিতিতে সন্দ্বীপ এসোসিয়েশন আয়োজিত এ অনুষ্ঠানের মাধ্যমে বাংলাদেশের ইতিহাস-ঐতিহ্য ইত্যাদি অবিকৃতভাবে উপস্থাপন করা সম্ভব হয়। এরফলে ব্রম্নকলীনে খেটে খাওয়া মানুষগুলোর ব্যাপারে আমেরিকানদের দৃষ্টিভঙ্গিতে আরেক দফা পরিবর্তন সাধিত হবে বলে অনেকে মনে করছেন।
Translation - English
The 38th Independence Day of Bangladesh was observed at Brooklyn in New York City on Saturday evening, the 29th of March. Amid a vibrant presence of about a dozen mainstream politicians, lawyers, social workers and the Consul General of Bangladesh in New York, the occasion organized by Sandweep Association paved the way for presenting the history and cultural tradition of Bangladesh in their undistorted form. Many believe the occasion would bring about further change among the Americans in their outlook about the toiling Bengali community in Brooklyn.
English to Bengali: South Asia Hunger
General field: Social Sciences
Detailed field: Social Science, Sociology, Ethics, etc.
Source text - English
A UN report says hunger in South Asia has reached its highest level in 40 years because of food and fuel price rises and the global economic downturn.
The report by the UN children's fund, Unicef, says that 100 million more people in the region are going hungry compared with two years ago.
It names the worst affected areas as Nepal, Bangladesh and Pakistan.
The report says South Asia's governments need to urgently increase social spending to meet the challenge.
It says that climate change and urbanisation also need tackling.
According to the World Bank, three quarters of the population in South Asia - almost 1.2 billion people - live on less than $2 a day. And more than 400m people in the region are now chronically hungry.
The report focused on the impact the economic crisis had on women and children, saying they are the people most vulnerable during a downturn.

জাতিসংঘের এক রিপোর্টে বলা হয়েছে, খাদ্য ও জ্বালানী তেলের মূল্য বৃদ্ধি এবং বিশ্বব্যাপী অর্থনৈতিক মন্দার কারণে দক্ষিণ এশিয়ায় ক্ষুধা ৪০ বছরের মধ্যে সর্বোচ্চ পর্যায়ে পৌঁছেছে।
জাতিসংঘ শিশু তহবিল বা ইউনিসেফ বলছে যে দুই বছর পূর্বের তুলনায় এ অঞ্চলের আরো অতিরিক্ত দশ কোটি মানুষকে অভূক্ত থাকতে হচ্ছে।
নেপাল, বাংলাদেশ ও পাকিস্তানের ওপর সবচেয়ে বেশী প্রভাব পড়েছে বলে এতে উল্লেখ করা হয়।
রিপোর্টে বলা হয়, চ্যালেঞ্জ মোকাবেলায় দক্ষিণ এশীয় দেশগুলোর সরকারকে জরুরী ভিত্তিতে সামাজিক খাতে ব্যয় বৃদ্ধি করতে হবে। এতে বলা হয় জলবায়ু পরিবর্তন এবং নগরায়নকেও নিয়ন্ত্রণে আনা প্রয়োজন।
বিশ্বব্যাংকের হিসাব অনুযায়ী, দক্ষিণ এশিয়ার প্রায় একশত কুড়ি কোটি মানুষ, যা মোট জনসংখ্যার তিন চতুর্থাংশ, দৈনিক দুই ডলারেরও কম উপার্জনে জীবিকা নির্বাহ করে থাকে। আর এ অঞ্চলের ৪০ কোটিরও বেশী মানুষ এখন স্থায়ীভাবে অনাহারী হয়ে পড়েছে।
রিপোর্টটিতে নারী ও শিশুদের ওপর অর্থনৈতিক সংকটের প্রভাব-এর বিষয়ে আলোকপাত করে বলা হয়, আর্থিক মন্দাবস্থায় এরাই হচ্ছে সবচেয়ে ঝুঁকিপূর্ণ জনগোষ্ঠী।

दिल और दिमाग़ में एक बहस चल रही है.
मन कह रहा है कि मैं भारत सरकार के इस क़दम का स्वागत करूँ कि छह से 14 वर्ष तक के बच्चों के लिए शिक्षा अनिवार्य किए जाने के प्रयास हो रहे हैं.
दिमाग़ है कि इन बच्चों के भविष्य को सोच-सोच कर परेशान है.
आठवीं पास 14 साल का बच्चा, चाह कर भी आगे पढ़ाई नहीं कर पाएगा. हो सकता है उसकी आर्थिक परिस्थिति इसकी इजाज़त न दे.
नौकरी वह कर नहीं सकता क्योंकि यह बालमज़दूरी की श्रेणी में आएगा.
मेरे आलोचक ज़रूर सवाल उठाएँगे कि मैं निराशावादी हूँ, अच्छी बात पर ख़ुश होने की जगह उसमें ख़ामियाँ ढूँढ रही हूँ लेकिन क्या करूँ...
आज़ादी के बासठ साल बाद, एक पीढ़ी के बुढ़ापे की दहलीज़ पर पहुँचने के बाद और दूसरी पीढ़ी के किसी तरह खींचखांच कर पढ़ाई पूरी करने, या किसी मजबूरी के तहत न पूरी करने के बाद, सरकार को इसकी सुध आई.
क्या करूँ, शाबाशी दूँ या इस बात का रोना रोऊँ कि इस आधे-अधूरे क़दम का नतीजा क्या होगा.
अरे भाई, बच्चे को दसवीं तो पास करा दो. क्या उसके माता-पिता से यह अपेक्षा कर रहे हो कि वे अपना पेट काट कर अभी से पैसा जोड़ना शुरू करदें ताकि अपने बच्चे की दो साल की मंहगी पढ़ाई का ख़र्चा उठा सकें.
फिर, एक सवाल यह भी है कि केवल 25 फ़ीसदी तक इसका फ़ायदा पहुँचने से अन्य 75 प्रतिशत का क्या होगा. या एक चौथाई का शिक्षित होना ही हर समस्या का अंत है.
लेकिन, यह बेहतरी की दिशा में एक क़दम है इसमें दो राय नहीं हैं.

Better Late Than Never!

A debate is running between the heart and the head.
The heart says I should welcome the Indian government's move under which attempts are being made to make education compulsory for children aged between six and 14 years.
But the head in contrast is worried to think about the future of these children.
Having passed the eighth class, a 14 year old child would not be able to continue the studies despite an ardent desire. May be his (or her) financial condition would not allow this.
He would not be able to enter a job, as this would fall within the category of child labour.
My critics would raise the point that I am pessimistic, finding faults with a good issue instead of being happy. But what should I do....?
After 62 years of independence, after one generation has reached the threshold of old age, and after the next generation has completed the studies through struggles, or failed to complete due to some bindings, awareness grew in the government about it.
What should I do? Should I applaud the move or should I weep over thoughts of what would be the outcome of such incomplete steps.
Oh come on, let the child pass at least the tenth class. Are you expecting from their parents that they should be accumulating money right from now on, so that they can afford the cost of the expensive two year studies?
Then another question is: with only 25 percent children having reached the benefits of it, what would happen to the remaining 75 percent? Or is getting just one quarter of them educated the solution to all the problems?
But there is no contradiction over the fact that it is definitely a step forward in the direction of progress.
Better late than never!
