Write a paragraph on “The Life of a Slum Boy of your Locality”

Thousands of people in Bangladesh live in the dirty unhygienic slums in the city area.

People who live in slums are known as slum dwellers. Poor homeless people make slums in towns and cities for their existence.

Slums are mostly found in big cities like Dhaka and Chittagong.

Poor people from different corners of the country gather in cities for their living. Since they have no place to live in and they are unable to pay the high rent of house, they make a slum in any open place and start living there.

They build their houses with polythene and bamboo slates. Their floor remains dump and there is not enough ventilation. They live in an unhealthy condition.

They earn their living by physical labor or any small business. Women of these families work as house maid or wage earners. They are deprived of the basic needs of human being. They cannot send their children to school. They suffer from starvation and diseases. There is no proper sanitation or drainage system in the slums.

Recent reports show that the slums have become a safe place for many criminals. Drugs are easily found there. Many young members of the slums are involved in different crimes. But we cannot blame these poor, deprived and uneducated slum dwellers only.

They are deprived of all sorts of citizen rights. It is the duty of the government or the state authority to ensure them a better life.It is not wise to hate the slum dwellers. Rather we all should work together to create a self reliant Bangladesh so that no more slum is created.
