How India Ruining Bangladeshi Youth and Economy

Sweet in a flavored syrupy base Phensedyl contains codeine-phosphate, chlorpheniramine maleate and ephedrine in variable amounts. The 'main' substance in the Phensedyl syrup is codeine-phosphate, and this eventually makes consumers addicted to the drug. The presence of ephedrine hydrochloride in Phensedyl creates high blood pressure and can cause sudden death due to cardiac problem or heart failure.

Many Bangladeshi youths feel that it would be smart and fashionable to take Phensedyl; Doctor drinking before they enter into Operation Theater, teacher having before entering a classroom, dealers penetrated our market with the help of top level to lower level, without realizing the harmful consequences of the above chemical.

Most of the drug industries are on Indian side of our border mushroomed with the active support of BSF. Bangladesh is the main target market of Phensedyl to destroy our young generation. BSF just shoot our martyr so that Indian drug smuggler gets free ride to Bangladesh.
India is ruining our youth life and vision by reinforcing smugglers for chain supply of Phensedyl. Some of our enforcement agency members are involved in this chain supply for their own benefit. Our police and RAB become helping hand of drug sellers; they collect monthly commission from Phensedyl dealers. Our police and RAB raid drug dens only occasionally while they do not get their regular kickbacks on time. Whenever some honest law and enforcement officers take action against drug dealers to protect our youth, price goes up to 2000 BDT per 100 ml bottle due to shortage of supply. Now a day’s those honest and dedicated officers could not choke peddlers from communicating with their buyers because of mobile phone and internet.
Dear readers, if you go through bellow references you will realize how India ruining our youth and economy:

Sources said the country's drug business would amount to no less than Tk 6,000 crore.

According to the National Assessment of Situation and Responses to Opiate Use in Bangladesh, drugs are being smuggled from India across the border into at least 24 districts and from Myanmar into Bandarban and Cox's Bazar.

"Smuggling routes of heroin powder, Phensedyl syrup and buprenorphine injections exist between West Bengal and Bangladesh," the report of the latest joint survey conducted by government and non-government agencies says. "Construction of bridges and national highways has facilitated drug trafficking within the country after they get smuggled in," the report adds.

"Huge money is involved in the drug trade. Once someone enters this business he never stops until his death," he said, adding, "So it's virtually impossible to completely rout the trade, but it's possible to control it and we're trying to do that."

I came across your blog and wanted to get in touch.
We are Wazala - an ecommerce solution that can be added to any website, blog or Facebook. Wazala adds an online store to your own blog pretty easily. It works with all CMS and blog engines out there, and can be installed onto your site with a simple copy and paste (no coding needed)!

The idea is simple, add an online store to your website, and sell your products online in a clean looking store, that does not direct your customers elsewhere. The entire process takes place within your site, elevating your own brand, and not directing visitors elsewhere.

You can spread your store to multiples sites, pages and even on your Facbeook business page all while managing one back end. Wazala is built for the tastemakers of the web, in particular artists like you. It’s also a great compliment to those using Etsy, as it allows you to spread your online sales further, keep your customer on your own site and brand it as you wish. A great start to selling on your own site for free, and upgrade once your business takes off.

I would love to talk to you about Wazala further, maybe you would use it yourself to sell your art, or your readers would be interested in knowing about it for their own ventures. I am sure you would be impressed by Wazala and your blog would benefit. Looking forward to hearing from you.
