Morning till night,
Night till morning.
Sun shine touches me
I mistake its you,
Hearing birds’ song
I hear your call,
Rain drops makes me
I feel your warm kiss,
Vast blue sky, kites’ fly
Cloud and cloud,
I am looking for you
Walking in a moonlit night
Speaking with stars,
Feeling gentle breeze-touch
I miss you much.
Full of anxiety, full of envy,
An aimless race as life.....
What is city life?
No rest, no peace,
Just run and run.......just.....run.
Sun rises, rain drops
Birds are singing....but
No time to see....
No time to be wet.......
No time to listen............
Where is time?
Running beside bus, track, rickshaw
Facing traffic jams....jam...jam.
Bill of water,
Bill of gas..........electricity..........
No electricity.....dark ....dark life.....City life!!!

Perhaps Journalist Matiur Rahman will get about 32 lac taka for winning this award. Now a lot of people think- How will he spend it? It’s his personal affair. But I think the man who is working for the welfare of nation and spending himself & his whole life for Bangladesh, he will spend his award in such a way that our poor sweetest motherland will be happy.
I hope Matiur Rahman will continue his journey of truth. Thanks him again.

Recently it has been found a heartrending example ‘Dipu’. He was only 12 years schoolboy of class four. This innocent boy was killed by one of his teachers through beating.
To err is human. So it’s natural that a student may make mistakes during study. Teachers should identify the causes of mistakes and make the students understood it. Schoolboys or girls are not sinners or crimers as they would be punished such an unwise way. If a teacher advises students with proper care, they must obey him/ her. So no need of such physical punishment.

What’s the cause of a rape? I think the main cause of rape is mental disease. Porn magazines & movies create this disease. Moreover, tendency of taking revenge on a woman occurs rape. Lack of morality in the youth is one of the causes.
It’s our irony of fate that judgment for a rape is rare now. In most of the cases most the criminals are powerful than the victims & our rotten society always supports powerful person. So most of the victims get one-eyed judgments. As a result, criminals get inspiration.
Is it possible to prevent rape? Of course possible! If law is used properly, criminals don’t get any political support, victims get wise judgment & overall men respect women from heart, then the term ‘Rape’ must be vanished from our society someday & we are waiting for such a bright day.

In bangle people call father as ‘baba’, ‘abba’, ‘abbu’, ‘babu’ etc. A few Indians call ‘babuji’, ‘abbaji’ as their father. The English use the term as ‘father’, ‘dad’, ‘papa’, ‘pappa’, ‘daddy’ etc. Actually various people call their beloved father according to their land, language & culture.
In this strange world there are some tasks that cannot be ignored. One of them is father’s love & affection & his contribution in our life. Most of the children get the knowledge of alphabets from father first. Many of them want to be a man as father. So father is a milestone of life. In the way of life father acts as the safest shadow that gives us proper direction to go ahead. In every stage, every step of life father’s contribution cannot be neglected. Every cell of our body is bound to announce the loving influence of father. In our country finance of father helps us to be not only educated but also employee. Life without father is impossible.
But we are so peculiar that we can easily ignore our father during his old age. We are so heatless that often we consider him as burden. He gets ill-treatment from us. Sometimes some black ships rebuke their old father due to lack of his working capability. Strange! Really strange! Exactly man can do anything!!! At present an astonishing culture is created our country! Now we send our old father to old home in order to be released of burden!
Actually a fatherless man can realize the value of father. An orphan can feel heartily the need of father in this critical life. So don’t forget your father. He is waiting for you with a bunch of love.
My old, sick father is 400 kms away from me now. I miss you father. I love you. Advance Happy Fathers’ Day!
What’s happen in Dhaka University? Through a cruel road crush a female student of DU was killed. General students went to Vice-chancellor for their safety. As a result we got most peculiar treatment of safety. A lot of female students were beaten & tortured by a strange combination of team containing teachers & JCD. What a treatment it is! Shame! Shame!
It’s our irony of fate that poor peoples’ lives have no value. So thousands of known-unknown men-women lost their lives due to launch capsize, Savar tragedy, crossfire etc.
For them law is really blind. So no judgment is required. Because ‘Allah ar mall Allah ee nese’!
Once only opposition party called hartal. Now both government & opposition parties call hartal. Standing between them general people pass a vibrant life. People face hamper of life & wealth. Students fail to continue their studies. But politicians have no tension. Because most of their children live in foreign country & study there. So no problem! Continue hartal!
If we were blind & fool, we would not see & think of anything for the country. No frustration would be created. No tension! No anxiety! So we want to be blind & fool!!!

There are three ponds in our RUET campus. When I walk beside them, I find people bathing. Children are bathing with great joy. Some of them jump into water from the branches of trees. What a free movement!
Sometimes I enjoy walking though paddy field. Fresh air touches me. Green nature influences me to be poetic. When air blows, green crops bow down. During winter all these field are empty. Then young boys fly kites there. Kites fly freely in order to reach unknown destination. Sometimes they meet birds.
I like rain though it is rare in Rajshahi. I find great taste into showering under rain water.
Wet nature gives me much pleasure when I see under a wet green leave a bird tries to save itself, children play football and women walk looking for dropped fruits during rain cats & dogs.
Rajshahi is famous for Padma. I go to the bank of this river most of the evenings. A lot of people come there to enjoy their leisure. Gentle breeze blows. Boats move. Trawlers go to the villages situated opposite side of Padma with villagers & workers. Men-women enjoy gossiping. Many of them enjoy walking.
This is a very little portion of our sweet Bangladesh. This is my motherland. I am proud of this country. "Amar sonar bangle ami tomai valobashi!"

Most of the debate competitions are organized in Dhaka. As because a lot of latent debaters often fail to participate those programs due to lack of time, money & many other facilities. Many educational institutes, outside Dhaka, do not want to sponsor the student-debaters. Sometimes parents’ support is not available. To solve these problems organizers who arrange debate competition in Dhaka should take initiatives immediately for arranging debate contest outside of capital regularly. It is a matter of hope that Bangladesh Debate Federation (BDF) & National Debate Federation (NDF) have come out of Dhaka to organize national type debate competitions through which many talent were identified. If the habit of centralism is given up, then everybody of the world of debate of Bangladesh may be hopeful.
Now-a-days many young debaters neglect the ancient format of debating. I know parliamentary format is more interesting & exciting. But present is based on past. So both the formats should be considered with equal respect. Debate, based on funny topic, may be called as fun-debate that gives a lot of pleasure to the audience. But this type of debate is not in the real formats of debate. Can it be included in a formatted way?
Ours’ have many organizations those work with debate, debaters & debating. It is heard that unfortunately some of those organizations work by deep political influence. I think debate is an art that comes from heart & mind & thoughts where no political influence plays vital role.

Most of the children are mentally weak due to lack of confidence. They are always afraid of many things what they would do easily. Their confidence must be increased otherwise future may not be self-dependent. But how is it possible?
Nothing is impossible. At present most of the schools teach children under unbearable pressure. Now it is a common scene, a child’s weight is less than that of its total text books. During the time of going to school the child can’t bear its school bag what is carried by its father or mother or anyone else. Under such idiotic pressure most of the children lose interest of study. They are afraid of math, English, bangle, history etc. I think the pressure should be decreased. Quality is better than quantity. So huge number of text books are not needed if few books, those have quality, are taught in proper way. Teachers have many responsibilities. They should make study interesting and enjoyable to children. In school most of the teachers like to beat children for punishment. This useless habit must be given up. Children are not criminal. They obey if they are advised nicely. So beating is unwise.
Relation between father and mother is very important for both physical and mental health of a child. If the relation is sweet, the child must be confident for any contest. If there is spoiled relation, the child has a very little bit of possibility to win.
Various contests may play an important role for increasing the mental power of children. For example, Math Olympiad. Through this contest lot of children have become very much confident to solve mathematical problem. Our government should take immediate response to arrange such type of contests. Thanks to the ins & outs of Math Olympiad. This type of arrangement is really praiseworthy.

During the time of consideration what were the jobs of the members of the censor board?
Were they sleeping? I am very much surprised when I see a fantastic & artistic movie "MATIR MOINA" was censored but many dirty movies are being released. Lot of questions are being raised for the role of censor board. If such type of censor board is not existed, perhaps the nation will not be hampered much. So no need of censor board!!!

Let's go back to the history. In 1952, 1969, 1971 students played vital role to save this motherland & language. At that time student politics was used for the welfare of country. Most brilliant students leaded at that time. In those days there was no quarrel among the student politicians for money & power as of today. It’s our bad luck that a big portion of student politics has been spoiled at present. But why? Who are responsible for it?
Two big parties BNP & AL have student organizations. BNP has 'Chattradal' & AL has 'Chattralegue'. Do you know about the leaders of both students' parties? It’s funny though these parties are for students only but most of the central leaders of them are non-students, some of them are married & father of children! Any way! Other alarming matter is no brilliant students who obtain merit position/ A+ in SSC/ HSC are interested in student politics. The present student politicians are not interested in studying. Most of their interest is grown for money & power not for welfare of country. So what is the destination of student politics?
We should immediately conscious about the matter of spoliation of student politics. Because today's student politicians are future's leaders of the country. Can we go back to the golden age of student politics as like as 1952, 1969, 1971.........?

These two parties are strict for their decision always. As a result general people are suffering much through facing useless fighting during hartal, losing wealth and sometimes life. At the age of e-net people of other countries know us as a nation who loves quarrel & fight. Often they are afraid of coming here. It is not only hampering but also terrible for our future. So question is " Where is our destination?". And the answer is totally unknown to me. Would you help me please?

Mujib said, "Today Bangladesh is a sovereign and independent country. On Thursday night West Pakistani armed forces suddenly attacked the police barracks at Razarbagh and the EPR headquarters at Pilkhana in Dhaka. Many innocent and unarmed have been killed in Dhaka city and other places of Bangladesh. Violent clashes between EPR and Police on the one hand and the armed forces of Pindi on the other, are going on. The Bengalis are fighting the enemy with great courage for an independent Bangladesh. May God aid us in our fight for freedom. Joy Bangla."
Zia said, "This is Swadhin Bangla Betar Kendra. I, Major Ziaur Rahman, at the direction of Bango Bondhu Mujibur Rahman, hereby declare that the independent People's Republic of Bangladesh has been established. At his direction, I have taken command as the temporary head of the republic. In the name of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, I call upon all Bengalis to rise against the attck by the west Pakistani Army. WE shall fight to the last to free our motherland. By the grace of Allah, victory is ours. Joy Bangla."
Both of these two leaders were really great. They contributed a lot for Bangladesh. But I think we're in a useless debate about their contribution. No need for such debate. We should respect them heartly avoiding any debate based on them.

A chocolate or a rose.
For in a week these shall be gone,
But Valentines remain.
If love were always sweet to tongue
Or fragrant to the nose,
Each day would be like Valentine's,
And we would go insane.
A Valentine just hangs around
Waiting to be kissed
Long after special days have passed
And every days are here.
So one is wise to choose one well
And chocolates to resist.
For in the midst of mania
It's nice to have one near."

Joanne Kathleen Rowling, author of the best-selling Harry Potter series of books, was born in Chipping Sodbury, near Bristol, in southwest England. Her birthday, as all true Harry Potter fans know, is July 31, the same as her famous boy-wizard hero.
The family, including her parents and younger sister Di, lived in Yate and then Winterbourne, also near Bristol. Her father worked on airplane engines for Rolls Royce. When Joanne was nine, the Rowlings moved to Tutshill, near Chepstow, England, close to the border of Wales.
Joanne—called Jo by her family and friends—did well in school, and in her senior year was the top girl in her class. In fact, Rowling has said that as a child she resembled Hermione Granger, Harry's obsessively studious friend, whom she modeled after herself. Although, Rowling notes, "I was neither as clever or as annoying (I hope!)."
At school, Rowling's favorite subjects were English and foreign languages. She particularly enjoyed reading books such as Manxmouse by Paul Gallico, about a creature with a mouse's body, rabbit's ears, and monkey's paws, and The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and other books in C. S. Lewis's Narnia series.
After graduating from public school with top honors in English, French, and German, Rowling went on to study French at the University of Exeter. She earned her degree in 1986 and over the next several years held a variety of secretarial jobs, including one at a publishing firm, where she had to send out rejection letters to prospective authors.
What she really wanted to do, however, was write. Rowling wrote her first story, Rabbit, about a rabbit with measles, at age five or six. Later, she tried her hand at writing novels, for adults. But she never finished writing any novel before she wrote the Harry Potter books.
Harry Potter Is Born
Rowling started writing the first Harry Potter book in 1990. The idea for Harry—a lonely, downtrodden 11-year-old orphan who learns he is actually a wizard when he is magically invited to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry—came to Rowling while she was stuck on a delayed train between Manchester and London. Although she left England a short time later to teach English in Portugal, Rowling continued to flesh out Harry's story.
Rowling returned to Britain in 1993, settling in Edinburgh, Scotland, to be near her sister. Divorced after a brief marriage in Portugal and now with a baby, she suffered through a period of poverty and depression while she struggled to earn a living and take care of her daughter, Jessica. It was during this difficult time that she finally completed Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, which was renamed Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone for the U.S. edition.
Success at Last
Following its publication in Britain in June 1997, the book quickly became a hit with children and adults alike and won numerous awards, including the British Book Awards' Children's Book of the Year. Rowling always envisioned the book as part of a seven-volume series—one book for every year that Harry spends at Hogwarts—and a new Harry Potter book appeared every year for the next three years. These were Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (1998), Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (1999), and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2000). These were followed by two short books from Harry Potter's world, Quidditch Through the Ages and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2001). The profits from those two went to a British charity, Comic Relief.
Rowling's road to fame and fortune may have been a bit rocky at times, but her success has been sure. In 2000, the 35-year-old author became the highest-earning woman in Britain, netting more than £20.5 million (about $30 million) over the previous year. She received an OBE (Order of the British Empire), a medal of achievement awarded by the queen, in March 2001. At the end of that same year, she married her second husband, Dr. Neil Murray. On March 23, 2003, Rowling's second child, David Gordon Rowling Murray, was born.
Not Just Another Best-Seller
On June 21, 2003, three months after David was born, the fifth book of the Harry Potter series was released. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix broke—no, shattered—no, obliterated—the previous record for first-day sales by a book, which had been set by Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. The fourth book sold 372,775 copies in the United Kingdom the day it was released; the fifth one sold almost 1.8 million. The United States sales figures were even more impressive. All told, Order of the Phoenix sold about seven million copies the day it was released.
The Harry Potter books have been translated into more than 55 languages, and it has been estimated that more than 250 million copies have been sold around the world. The first three books have been made into films: Sorcerer's Stone made more than $950 million; Chamber of Secrets, more than $850 million; and Prisoner of Azkaban, more than $650 million, as of July 2004, when the third was still in theaters. All three are among the top twenty highest-grossing films of all time.
In February 2004, Forbes magazine estimated that Rowling had £576 million, or more than a billion dollars. This would make her the first person ever to become a billionaire from writing books. While raising her children has cut into the time she has for writing books, the sixth, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is now well underway.
A New Muggle in the Works
In late July 2004, Rowling announced on her website that she was expecting a third child. She said that she did not expect this to delay the writing of the sixth Harry Potter book.

And being very peaceful should be still —
Still as the utmost depths of ocean keep —
Serenely silent as some mighty hill.
Yet is my love so great it needs must fill
With very joy the inmost heart of me,
The joy of dancing branches on the hill
The joy of leaping waves upon the sea.
Hey, rose, just born
Twin to a thorn;
Was't so with you, O Love and Scorn?
Sweet eyes that smiled,
Now wet and wild:
O Eye and Tear- mother and child.
Well: Love and Pain
Be kinfolks twain;
Yet would, Oh would I could Love again.

We've lost a year 2004 forever & got a new year 2005. In the recent past year many weal & woe came to our lives. It is the time to calculate the want & gain of last year.
War in Iraq, India-Pakistan tention, Different bomb blast, recent Tsunami attack, Professor murder etc. damaged human society vastly. Life & wealth were hampered. Thousands of people were finished.
What's the achievement in 2004? We won EMMY Award 2004 for 'Amrao Pari'. Abdullah Abu Sayeed obtained Magasaysay Award 2004. Young scientist Aref Chowdhury was selected as one of the best 100 scientists (young) of the world. So as a Bangladeshi our number of achievements were not so small, not so vast.
New year, new dream, new hope, new want, new gain..........new & new.........wish you all the best. Happy New Year!!!
N.B: As I'm a tender blogger & very weak in English language, so my reader (if any) should consider my posts with soft heart. I'm trying my best to be skilled in English.
