As you know most of the communities (such as Bengali) in this sub-continent (Indian) are covered by ‘Culture of Poverty’ (Oscar Lewis), irrespective of class or economic strata, lives in pavement or apartment. Nobody seriously condemn or ashamed of the deep-rooted corruption, decaying general quality of life, worst politico-governance, bad work place, weak mother language, continuous consumption of common social space (mental as well as physical, both).
We are becoming parents only by self-procreation, mindlessly and blindfold (supported by some lame excuses). Simply depriving their (the children) fundamental rights of a decent and caring society, fearless and dignified living. Pushing persons for a nasty survival, indulge the entire community to go perish. Do not ever look for any other positive alternative values to perform human way of parenthood, i.e. deliberately stop giving birth to any child him/herself till the society improves up to the mark, co-parenting children those are born out of extreme poverty, instead.
All of us are driven only by the very animal instinct. If the Bengali people ever desire genuine freedom from vicious cycle of poverty, need to involve themselves in ‘Production of Space’ (Henri Lefebvre), an intense attachment with the society at large to overcome inherent ‘hopeless’ mindset, decent politics would certainly come up.
