But my mind doesnt want to know anything except writing.

Critical situation

Bangladesh is facing a critical situation at present. Its the time to be united. But where is our unity? Have we forgotten 1971? Its painful for us when we notice two big parties, AL & BNP, are nonstop rebuking each other on the case of bomb blast & JMB connection. Very funny! Shame! Actually poitical leaders want power at any cost. Perhaps most of the time they forget the condition of general people who really want peace. Public dont want any damage of country. They dont want power...lots of money....wealth. They want only to lead a happy life.
Anyway! We love Bangladesh. We hope to be united again as 1971. Dear political leaders! Would you please beside us?

Bomb blast.....failed security

I was astonished hearing the news of bomb blast yesterday. About 400 bombs blasted at a time whole country. How is it possible? Where is RAB, Police & DB.........Intelligence and law enforcing agencies? Now it is clear to us that our national security system is seriously injured. Immediately it needs hard & fast treatment.

I miss you.......

I am looking for you
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
In crowd.
Walking in a moonlit night
Speaking with stars,
Feeling gentle breeze-touch
I miss you much.

City Life

Destination less journey,
Full of anxiety, full of envy,
An aimless race as life.....
What is city life?
No rest, no peace,
Just run and
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..........
Captures heart.........soul.....aaaaaaah.......
No electricity.....dark ....dark life.....City life!!!

Congratulations Matiur Rahman!

I am very much glad to know the name of the winners of Magsaysay Award 2005. Famous journalist Matiur Rahman who is the editor of daily Prothom-alo is one of the winners of this award. It’s not only a great honor for him but also the whole nation. Working magnificently though various public welfare fields, writing against all black & dark of society and speaking for making glorious nation Matiur Rahman tries to enrich our country. So he is the most suitable person of getting this award. That’s why selection committee can be thanked.
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.

Punishment on schoolboys

It’s a common scene of our schools that children are cruelly punished there. Most of the school teachers like to beat them mercilessly. They apply various techniques on students as punishment, such as, to hurt ear or belly or fingers, to stand by one leg, to bow down under bench etc etc. All these useless activities often hamper a child’s both mental & physical health. As a result broken minded generation may be got.
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.

From a national newspaper......

"After brutally unleashing their fury on photojournalists, some members of the National Security Intelligence (NSI) have exposed the poverty of their intelligence. This they have done by framing cases against 20 journalists. What a shame! It is them who should find themselves in the dock for failing to do their duty. Instead, they try to prove that they did the right thing by physically assaulting the journalists who were carrying on their professional duty. What was the photojournalists' crime? They took pictures of the NSI office's boqndary wall smeared by writing and posters on it. This drew the wrath of the NSI members, not the writing and fastening of posters on the wall. Was it an act of threat to national security? For argument's sake let us accept that taking picture of the wall is not legally approved, but does it mean that the members of the NSI would resort to physical violence against the 'offenders'? They have no business to hand summary punishment to such offenders. It is the court that is entitled to decide the matter and award punishment, if any."

Rain Comes...

We are passing rainy season now. Its really charming to enjoy the dropping sound of rain, more interesting is showering! In Rajshahi rain is rare comparing other districts. So when it comes people try to use it properly. Specially children play football on ground bathing. My exam is running at full speed! As I have to deprive the wish to be wet in rain afraid of fever!

Politics is a funny game!

The recent developments in our country's politics are really funny. It is very clear now that a politician can do anything for himself. At present the definition of politics is " Do only for yourself and give up the wife if necessary". General Ershad is a 'role model' of modern politics! He has amply proved the changed definition of politics!

Drama and politics

Can any one tell me the similarity between drama and politics? I think that under the present condition in Bangladesh both are full of falsehood! Drama is a combination of fictitious attitude of actors and actress. On the other hand the politicians display such attitudes when it is needed in the field of politics. Drama gives recreation to the audience. Politics gives not only recreation but also wealth and power, to the politicians only. We, the public, try to share but fail again and again!

Rape// The crime

Have you ever seen a newspaper without the news of a rape even for a single day? Unfortunately I have failed to get such a newspaper. Moreover the number of this type of news is increasing alarmingly. So at present there is no hope to get that type newspaper, isn’t it, really? Actually everything depends on us. Because man can do anything if he wants. Then the satisfactory answer may be gotten.
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.

About Father

Is there any definition of father? I think there is no exact solution of the question. None can coat the contribution of father through few words. Father is father. He has no alternative. Can you remember your very childhood when you just started walking? Who was your first partner in playing playground at that time? Do you know how to swim or ride a bicycle? If you know so tell from whom did you know this? The answer of all these questions is ‘father’.
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!

Solutionless speech

We are very much frustrated for the present situation of Bangladesh. Is there any happiness in any sector of this country? Perhaps government will say that Bangladesh is the happiest country of the world & all those happiness are the contributions of them. But the general people are not blind, they can observe. They are not fool, they can think. And this is the problem. Present condition makes us anxious, disheartens & above all frustrated.
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!!!

My Sweet Bangladesh

Hearing birds’ chirping, getting the kiss of sun I get up from bed everyday. I take light exercise in the corridor of our hall from where sky is vastly seen. Blue sky! Sometimes a few clouds fly, sometimes birds. They all are free. They fly through an independent sky today.
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!"

Debate & Dividing

Before discussing the main topic it’s needed to tell a little bit about me who want to say something that may be meaningless to everybody about debating as I am not specialist in debating. Any way! I like debating. From my boyhood I started to practice it. In school life I got the opportunity for participating national television school debate competition. I was the former captain of Barisal Zilla School Debating Team. At present I am engaged in Debating Society of RUET. Still now I carry on debate practicing. Though in school life I followed the ancient way, so called script based, of debating, mostly now parliamentary format is followed. So I know about both popular formats of debate. Perhaps my knowing may not be proper. Because knowing is endless.
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.

What Should be The Destination of Children?

It is very simple & clear to all that children are the future of country. So they should be grown up through a balanced way where no frustrational material is existed. All of them should have destination of life. They should be brought under the shadow of confidence. They should be taught in such a way that they learn to believe themselves. I think in this case environment plays a vital role. In the environment parents play the main role, then teacher & others’ act is considerable.
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.

No need of censor board!

Have you enjoyed recent released Bangle movie? Anybody may ask me, "Are you joking?" I think most of you will oppose the word "enjoy". Because the man who has a little bit of choice for culture of Bangladesh must give up watching Bangle movie that is mostly story less, senseless, properly education less but full of idiotic, useless & unwise sex & violence. So it is totally impossible to enjoy. Any way! I am confused about the act of censor board that gives permission such type of vulgar movie to play in cinema hall! How is it possible? A well-headed man can’t permit any vulgar movie for playing.
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!!!

Walking in a loadsheded night

In our daily life load shedding play an important role as it has already become one of the common means of our life during every hot season! Now we’re passing summer facing angry sun with heartless hot air. People are always trusty. Hot weather makes people tired. Most boring life we pass at present. It becomes most boring when the electricity is off. This is occurred mostly every night. Men of all age turn to be helpless at that time. I live in Rajshahi that is one of the hottest districts of Bangladesh. Every night during the time of load shedding most of the students come out of hall and walk and gossip in campus. Before my hall a big field is situated. We sit on grass dividing groups. Sitting circularly we start gossiping. There is no fixed topic. Politics, game, cause of load shedding etc are the topics. Sometimes we enjoy dirty jokes. One strange matter takes place in discussion and that is mobile. ‘One unknown number missed called me. Threat him.’ ‘Look, she send me a nice sms.’ etc etc etc. When gentle breeze blows we feel comfort. Otherwise we rebuke continuously all responsibilities of power system until the electricity back. It is right load shedding gives us pleasure for a limited time by depriving us from boring study! But there is a proverb – Excess of anything is bad.

Free! Free!!

Three months of a year we are too busy to think of other topics except native land & language. February, March & December-in these months we suddenly become very much patriot! During that time we are so so anxious about ‘Bangla’ & Bangladesh! When February comes, we engage to discuss about our language & sacrifice of 1952 only for this month. Strangely other times of year we are not interested on this matter. Similarly during March & December we speak, think & write on the topics related to our liberation war. Honour of freedom fighters is the talk of the time in two months. It’s funny that in other months we don’t think about the contribution of freedom fighters.
So these three months make us busy and after their departure, we free & free!!!

March Gone, We Free!

The month of independence has gone. So we've become free! Three months of a year-february, march & december make us too much consious about our motherland & language! During this time most of us think, speak & write on freedom, freedom fighter & 'Bangla' language. In other time strangrely we can't do so. What a funny mentality it is!

A letter in Daily Star

Update: Few days ago I wrote an article named 'student politics of Bangladesh' in my blog. An edited form of this post has been published in The Daily Star today.

Friday, March 25, 2005

26th March, Independent day & Independence

We all know 26th March is a red-letter day for every Bangladeshi. The day is our Independent day from the glorious year 1971. You know there is a proverb it is easier to achieve independence than to maintain it. I think we are passing a critical moment now when the defeated power in 1971 has got the partial power of government, most of the alive freedom fighters are being neglected and the young generation is going to a dark destination where no real history of liberation war is existed. It is noticed there is a strange tendency in some people. They are not interested about the past, about the war & about the history '71. Moreover they despair their children to know the past history of Bangladesh. But why? Past is past, isn't it? Question is what’s the base of present & future? I know present is based on past. And the base of future is present. Am I right?

Student politics of Bangladesh

Generally the politics in which the students play chief role is known to us as student politics. In Bangladesh student politics is existed. But can we comment it safe? Is it well? I am sorry to say that the present student politics of Bangladesh is quite ill. It needs treatment. Brilliant students have to come in the field of this politics. All black & ugly should be removed from here.
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.........?

Friday, March 11, 2005

Where is our destination?

I am very much anxious about the future of Bangladesh. What will come for us? What would be commented for this country? We are passing an unhappy period at present. But why? Who/ what is responsible for the unexpected situation? Personally I think ill politics is the main cause for the upper situation. None know the destination of politics. Even politicians are also totally in dark about their goal. They are engaged in unnecessary debating against each other always. Observing their behavior it seems to me that the government party wants to be in power forever and the opposition party wants the resignation of government party without giving any chance to work by giving hartal & hartal.
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?

We want judgement of genocide'71

Do you know the genocide happened in 1971 in Bangladesh? At that time this country was a part of Pakistan & she was called East Pakistan. West Pakistan tortured us socially, economically, religiously through every steps of life. They wanted to capture everything of us. But Bangladshis are brave. They announced war against Pakistan for freedom. For this reason Pakistani army tortured, raped & killed thounsands of people. About 30 lac innocent people including children, young & old were killed. Many women were raped. Perhaps their number was about 2 lac. Thus the biggest genocide of the world '71 was happened. Now we are independent. But we get no judgement of Pakistan for their evil work in 1971. Still now tortured people are looking for that future when Pakistan would be punished for doing genocide'71.

Is it true?

If you read my past post, then you came to know the confusing matter of mine about the announcer of freedom of Bangladesh. For truth I visited some websites. I got some information about the first declaration of freedom of this country.

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.

The Announcer of Freedom of Bangladesh

March, the month of independence, is running now. 26th March is a red-letter day for Bangladesh. At this day in 1971 our independence has been announced. But it is our irony of fate that still now we're in dark about the real announcer of freedom of Bangladesh. When the present opposition party AL was in power, all textbooks informed that Sheikh Mujib was the announcer. After five years BNP got the government power and the information was totally changed. Now we know that Ziaur Rahman announced the independence of Bangladesh. So we, the new generation, are absolutely confused about the announcer. Who is right? AL or BNP? Once I knew that history could not be changed. But now I know nothing is universal including history in Bangladesh! Isn't it?

A comment

“Everyone loses if one language is lost because then a nation and culture lose their memory, and so does the complex tapestry from which the world is woven and which makes the world an exciting place.” Vigdis Finnbogadottir, UNESCO’s Goodwill Ambassador for Languages, Former President of Iceland.

Happy Valentine!

"A Valentine is nothing like
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."

About J.K. Rowling

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.

School Days

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.

Inside of me

MY love it should be silent, being deep —
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.

Welcome 2005// Happy New Year

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 & 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.
