But before hitting our next birthday, we should be able to figure out where we stand in terms of maturity. The American economist Walt Whitman Rostow, in his modernization theory, proposed the “drive to maturity” as the fourth stage of economic development, right after the take-off stage. Holding this thought, I tried to brainstorm ways to define and rate Bangladesh in terms of its maturity. In terms of a maturity scale, the evaluation should be done based on two basic variables of the state: Government and citizens. Now, I am going to the next basic variable of my maturity scale -- the citizens of our state.
