সেদিন পাঁচটায় তার সাথে বসার কথা। নিশ্চিত হওয়ার জন্যই তিনটার দিকে ফোন দিলাম। ফোন ধরলেন। জানলাম
,একজন মন্ত্রীর সাথে মিটিংয়ে আছেন। মোবাইলের এ প্রান্ত থেকেই তার রুদ্ধশ্বাস ব্যস্ততা টের পাচ্ছিলাম। তবুও তিনি কথা বললেন। মনে করিয়ে দিলাম, পাঁচটায় তার সাথে বসার কথা। বুঝতে পারলাম, তিনি খানিকটা বিব্রত। বিব্রত বোধ করার টোন থেকেই কারণটা অনুমান করে নিলাম। কারণটা হচ্ছে প্রতিশ্রুতি রক্ষা করতে না প‌‌ারা, যা তিনি পারতপক্ষে করেন না। দেশ, সমাজ ও মানুষের প্রতি প্রচণ্ড দায়িত্ব, কর্তব্য, প্রতিশ্রুতিবোধ থেকেই তো তিনি আজ দেশের সবচেয়ে প্রতিশ্রুতিশীল তরুণ উদ্যোক্তাদের একজন। তার মতো প্রতিশ্রুতিশীল তরুণদের বিষয়ে আমার ব্যক্তিগত আগ্রহ রয়েছে। কারণ এসব তরুণই তো ভবিষ্যত বাংলাদেশের সৌধ নির্মাণ করে চলেছেন। এ কারণেই তার সাথে যোগাযোগ। অসহায় ভঙ্গিতে তিনি আমাকেই বললেন, ….বলেন তো এখন কী করা যায়?
সমস্যা নাই, আপনিই বলেন
উমমম্ ডি ডি ডি………..’
এ কোন পাগলের পাল্লায় পড়লাম রে বাবা
