Professor Yunus — The Dream and Dreamer October 14, 2006

Posted by linuxwarrior in Real World.

Today is the joyful day in Bangladesh. Every citizens of the country show their great love and respect to Professor Md. Yunus for his great achievement. He and his Grameen Bank are awarded Nobel prize for Peace.

All newspaper, TV channels, magazine published this great news with many feature of his life and contribution. He is the king of poor people. I can’t imagine what great joy is going on in the world. People of Bangladesh not only share this joy, this joy for whole world.

here I just add some talk of his interview with Nobelprize.org. this interview is taken by Adam Smith who is the chief editor of Nobelprize.org….

” AS] – Is there any particular message you would like to use the opportunity to get across?

[MY] – The one message that we are trying to promote all the time, that poverty in the world is an artificial creation. It doesn’t belong to human civilization, and we can change that, we can make people come out of poverty and have the real state of affairs. So the only thing we have to do is to redesign our institutions and policies, and there will be no people who will be suffering from poverty. So I would hope that this award will make this message heard many times, and in a kind of forceful way, so that people start believing that we can create a poverty-free world. That’s what I would like to do.

[AS] – Thank you very much, and does your work with the …

[MY] – Thank you.

[AS] – Does your work with the Grameen Bank over the last three decades make you more hopeful that this is possible?

[MY] – Oh yes, very much, we see the demonstration of it every day. People come out of poverty every day. So it’s right in front of us what happens and it can be done globally, it can be done more forcefully, we can organize more things to go with it, so this is something not theoretical issue, it’s a very real issue. People can change their own lives, provided they have the right kind of institutional support. They’re not asking for charity, charity is no solution to poverty. Poverty is the creation of opportunities like everybody else has, not the poor people, so bring them to the poor people, so that they can change their lives. That’s all we are doing. We didn’t do anything special; lend money to the people so – but they never lent it to the poor people – all we did was we lent it to the poor people, and that makes the trick. That makes the change.

[AS] – Thank you very much indeed for speaking to us. “

Great man always thinks in this way.

Happy day. Long live Professor Yunus.Wish you more success of work.
