This Study represents a trend in anthropology to shift its attention to places of modern technology and bureaucracy. Shahaduz Zaman carried out anthropology fieldwork in an orthopaedic ward in a large government teaching hospital of Bangladesh. The study shows that in contrast to the assumed universalism in biomedicine, biomedical practice is in fact a product of particular social conditions. The Hospital reflects the features of its society.

আপনি রান্না করবেন। ডিপ ফ্রিজ থেকে জমাট বাঁধা মাংস বের করেছেন। বরফ ঝরিয়ে রান্নার জন্য প্রস্তুত করলেন। কিন্তু রান্না করা হলো না। এখন সেই খাবার আবার ডিপ ফ্রিজে রেখে হিমায়িত করলে মাংসের কিছু গুণ নষ্ট হতে পারে কি? গত বছরটা ছিল যেন বজ্রপাতের বছর। মে ও সেপ্টেম্বরে বজ্রপাতে প্রায় ৮০ জন মানুষ মারা গেলেন। বজ্রপাত কি বাড়ছে? এর জন্য দায়ী কি জলবায়ু পরিবর্তন? অথবা ধরুন একটা জরুরি প্রশ্ন, মানুষ কি মঙ্গল গ্রহে গিয়ে বাঁচতে পারবে? সেখানে কি বাতাস আছে, থাকলেও সেই বাতাসে কি অক্সিজেন আছে? এসব প্রশ্ন আমাদের প্রতিদিন আলোড়িত করে। তা ছাড়া আমাদের সুস্থ থাকতে হবে। কীভাবে ফিটফাট থাকা যায়?

In recent decades, irrigation and the introduction of High Yielding Variety (HYV) rice has worked to make Boro the highest-producing rice season – transforming Bangladesh from the “basket case” of the seventies into an economy that is self-sufficient in food.
