"Of the classical elements-air, water earth, and fire - only one is symbolic of Bangladesh: water For Bangladesh is not so much a land upon water as water upon a land. One-third of Bangladesh's physical space of 55,000 square miles is comprised of water in the dry season, while in the rainy season up to 70 percent is submerged Water is the central reality of Bangladesh, just as its shortage is the central reality of Saudi Arabia.

This volume explores the experience of forty years of public administration in Bangladesh as a field of study as well as a practice. Although the latter predates the former, both have nevertheless declined over the decades. None appears to be much capable of keeping pace with developments taking place in its environment. Whatever changes have taken place in each area cannot be considered as ‘sufficient’ to deal with demands of time. The book examines the factors that account for the development and decline of public administration in Bangladesh.

বিশ গেরামের গল্প বইটির মূল লক্ষ্য বাংলাদেশের বিভিন্ন অঞ্চল থেকে বহুস্তর-বিশিষ্ট দৈব নমুনা চয়নের ভিত্তিতে বাছাইকৃত ২০টি গ্রামের চার দশকব্যাপী ঘটে যাওয়া আর্থ-সামাজিক রূপান্তর উপস্থাপন করা। সম্পূর্ণভাবে মানুষের নিজস্ব চিন্তাভাবনা বা অনুভূতিকে নির্ভর করে গ্রাম রূপান্তরের এই গল্প উপস্থাপন করা হয়েছে। গল্প তৈরিতে নির্দিষ্ট ছকে বাঁধা কোনো প্রশ্নমালা ছিল না। বেছে নেওয়া হয়েছে এক নবধারামূলক পদ্ধতি - বাড়ির উঠোনে বসে, চায়ের স্টলে আড্ডা দিয়ে কিংবা ক্ষেতের আইল ধরে হাঁটতে হাঁটতে জানতে চাওয়া হয়েছে রূপান্তর নিয়ে মানুষের বক্তব্য।
