Nipping night chats!

In Bangladesh, parents feel it isn’t right
For kids to enjoy free phone calls at night
“Youngsters glued to the cell
What they chat, who can tell?
It will be healthier if instead they slept tight!"

Al Jazeera 16/01/06: Bangladesh has ordered mobile phone operators to stop offering free late-night calls to protect "moral values" of young people. Get the story here
