You could think of it as a male backlash, or the inevitable bitterness that seeps in at the crashing of hope. Nearly a year after Khaleda Zia swept into office, she's already alienated a large chunk of those who voted her bnp. Raging lawlessness and rampant corruption have made many prognosticate that she might be forced to step down before her term expires.

There's no credible alternative and people do not have much choice but to accept their leadership."
