News from Bangladesh - As Interpreted by a Foreigner

The Asia File comments on some recent news from Bangladesh:

* The Daylight Saving Time:
...having experienced the incredibly frequent and frustrating rolling blackouts during my few days here, I agree that something needs to be done about the acute power shortage. However, I find it slightly disconcerting when governments start to mess with time.

* Cattle trader shot by Indian border patrol:
It’s a pretty extreme response to illegal border trade, of the kind that you’d expect from North Korea, not India.
