Programs of varied taste and interest are shown in the satellite channels. Some programs are informative and educative and some are harmful and obscene. So, programs of satellite television channels have not only uses but also abuses .Let we find out the uses and abuses of satellite television in the following paragraphs.

There are some news channels of the satellite television. BBC, CNN, ZEE NEWS etc. Telecast news and views round the clock. We can know the happenings live from the spots through these channels. Thus these channels help us a lot in providing current affairs of the world.

Television also telecast educative programs. Channels like discovery, the national geographic channel, BTV, Door dirham, national etc. Telecast highly informative programs on various subjects. Satellite channels are also used for distance learning.

The main use of satellite television is entertainment. When we become tired of our work, we want to relax. At this time television programs refresh us by telecasting songs, drama serials, movies, etc. Satellite channels have become an addiction to many. People specially the students sit in front of the TV set and spend hour after hour. This hampers their normal work schedule.

For sitting too long before the TV set, the eyesight of the viewers is affected. So, there is eyestrain and many people lose their eyesight at a premature age. Sometimes, satellite channels telecast some programmers with indecent costume. So, it is often hesitating to watch the TV programmers with all the members of the family.

The most dangerous thing about the satellite TV is the cultural intrusion culture of one country enters into another culture and pollute one’s own culture. Cultural invasion is more dangerous than the political invasion. Satellite channels of the developed countries are influencing the culture of the poor countries.



However, the satellite channels are more entertaining than the national channels. We should not pick up the bad things. We should derive the educative lessons. We must discover the programmers that suit our taste and culture.

Empowerment of women in Bangladesh

                                      Empowerment of women in Bangladesh

Empowerment means the process of giving power or authority to the powerless. And empowerment of women indicates a process which helps women get the opportunity to join the workforce and social affairs.


In the past women were confined within the four walls . They were kept away from out-of-home productive work. The hearth was their workplace and so cooking , cleaning , washing giving birth and rearing children become their jobs . Men become the wage earners and all other responsibilities were imposed on them . It Bangladesh the women are still lagging behind .

Women are the worst sufferers in Bangladesh . Superstition and religious dogmas are belting their position  and dignity . The birth of a girl child in a poor family is not regarded as good . Parents think that the birth of a girl child will add to their sufferings . Very often they do not think of sending their girl to school . They are married off in their tender age . In her father in-law’s house she is not treated well and she is often tortured and mistreated by her husband and others for dowry.

In society women are no less important than men . About half of our total population is women . So it cannot be denied that they too possess equal rights and duties as men . They also have ability and if they get opportunity , they can also work like men . That is why keeping aloof a half of its total population , no nation can make the real progress. So, women’s empowerment is a must .

Women’s condition has changed greatly during the last few decades . At present women are playing important roles in all spheres of life . They have come out of the four walls and are working hand in land with men in all spheres of work . Proper steps should be taken for the empowerment of women . We should make our women conscious of the socio-economic development of the county . They should be made self-reliant by impartation to them proper knowledge and employment . Our social prejudices regarding the girls must be changed .


We can say that if we want to keep pace with the challenge of the new millennium ,the participation of both men and women in all development works must be ensured.
