Sheikh Hasina – Christiane Amanpour

15 May

The recent tragedy of a garment factory collapse and sight of a teenage girl who survived miraculously for 17 days under the rubble and debris in Bangladesh hauntingly brought out inequities of development in poor countries. There is no infrastructure ,rules and safety norms for poor laborers and most of them being women.

Christiane Amanpour takes on prime minister Sheikh Hasina in this interview and brings to her notice appalling state of affairs , but as in all developing and underdeveloped countries political class are divorced from realities of their people and tend to be blase and insensitive , please see this interview. The summary of this interview is available at http://amanpour.blogs.cnn.com/2013/05/02/prime-minister-says-bangladesh-is-reforming-its-garment-industry/

This is sad and sadder is capitalism has no soul especially in poor countries…
