Man is a self-contradictory creature. Human heart yearns for a lasting relationship but man often breaks it up with just a simple “touch” long before it is formed.
: I really feel honoured to find all of you here on my wall. Thanks for being with me… In these days, love is hardly interpreted as what it is actually is. We’re too busy at pleasing ourselves rather than feeling it in the truest sense. People think they’re in love, they’re often in just lust. The true aspect of love can never be so narrow as to be surrendered only to some subconscious desire. In this context, let me quote some lines from my poem, “BROKEN APPOINTMENTS OF LOVE”…..
I thought, I drank the nectar of love to my heart,
But I sipped but a little!
Love once whispered to my soul,
I was too busy then even to listen to it.
Long long afterwards, I heard its echo,
My heart treasured it, I felt like floating!
Our sweetest feelings always remain untouched, I realized.
As vowed I’ve, never dare banish Love,
Never too late begins my ache to shun.
Gentle swain as I’m to refuse—
To turn wicked spirit into divine one!

Always remain true to yourself and do not be defined by others or conform to their standards or thoughts of whom you shall be. Love the greatness in YOU that our marvelous creator designed you to be!

: ওই সুসু মিয়া, তোমার দোকানে যত পদের ব্রেসলেট আছে….সবগুলির একটা ডাটাবেইজ আমার কাছে শীঘ্রই পাঠাও (with picture and price)। লেদার থেকে শুরু করে যা কিছু পাওয়া যায়, সব সব! আমার রুমমেট দেশে গেছে, তারে দিয়ে আনাবো দুইএকটা।
: তুমি আমেরিকা থেকে আমার কাছে চায়নিজ/ থাই ব্রেসলেট চাইতেসো? আমি ব্যাপক খুশি হইসি!… যাই হোক, যদি এই ওয়ালপোস্টটা মস্কারি না হয়ে থাকে, তাইলে তোমার বন্ধুরে কইয়ো আমারে একটা কল দিয়ে আসতে। আমি নিজেই তোমার লাইগা বাইছা দিমু….
তারপর দোস্তো, আছো কেমন?
: তুমি যেমন লাখপতি, সবাই তো আর তেমন না….গরীব মানুষ আমি, একটা ব্রেসলেট $20-$30 দিয়া কিনলে পোষাইবো না। আর যে বান্দা দেশে গেছে, ও বাংলাদেশের উত্তর-দক্ষিণ কিছুই চিনে না।….খালিখালি জোর করলে পরে গিয়া রাস্তা হারায়া ফেলবে! আমার বোনই হয়তো গিয়া নিয়া আসবে।

Thank you, father, for what I’m and for what I’m not… Happy Fathers’ Day.
My father practises what I preach… His dreams teach me how great actions should be…
I often thought that honesty is what we show in our actions… His life has taught me that honesty is what we have in our thoughts… Later on, our thoughts become our actions…
Hats off my dear father! I think, when our thoughts spring from our actions, we’re led to preaching, and when our actions spring from our thoughts, we’re led to practicing… Preaching is always easier than practicing!
… I completed my graduation in Computer Science and Engineering. At present, I’m not in any service, but I’m planning to be engaged into one. I’ve also a plan to complete Masters. I own a small business as I wrote to you earlier. Thanks dada. Take care.
… Please accept my heart-felt thanks for your sincere suggestion. I wish I met you before my admission into the engineering university. There was no one beside me to show me the way I should go. And, like some other students with high academic caliber in secondary and higher secondary level, I’ve become an engineer as par certificate, not as par my aptitude. I don’t have the least inclination for my graduating subject and so I’ll will surely go for an MBA or some courses in literature or philosophy if I’m to do the Masters. I don’t know how you feel about my decision, but I’ve just written what I feel. I’m not an IT professional, I’m just an IT graduate. That’s the irony….. Since the last time I talked to you, I’ve thought a lot about investing into share market. I’ve seen many positive trends in this sector and I’m planning to start it soon. I’ll surely ask you any queries about it as I know, you’re highly informed and educated in this market trend….. And, one correction in your idea please… I’m the first person in my whole family who has entrepreneur a small-scale business. No other person is there in my family to show me the way. My father, uncles and other relatives are all professionals not businessmen. They just fear this path!…. Now, I’m busy preparing myself for the Civil Service Exam of Bangladesh Govt. I feel, after all, an honorable designation is a must for me….. Dada, I’ve liked very much what you’ve quoted regarding share market. I’ll try to keep it in my mind. Please feel free to give me any kind of suggestion, advice for pursuing a better career, a better life. I sincerely welcome your suggestions. Waiting to hear from you again. Thank you, dada, once again. Take care. Bye.
… I’ve not seen God but I’ve seen my parents, and it’s enough for me. I can pass my whole life just worshipping these two wonderful personalities…. Thank you didi, for reading me.
…. Dada, anekdin por! Asha kori barir sobaike niye besh valo acho. Sobsomoi sobaike niye darun valo thako tumi, ei prarthonai kori…
… What I thought yesterday, I’m trying to do today. What I’m thinking today, I might deviate from tomorrow. That’s my problem, indecisive manners in my actions, thoughts. If I can escape from such a stereotype, I’ll surely be able to do what you want me to do. Thanks.
Wow! It’s a nice matter to have someone who shares the same mental setup as well as academic trend. My family also didn’t like the idea of my stepping into business, a world of uncertainty. But I tried to write my lot and chose this way. The Royal Road is still far away to reach. But I’ll someday reach there surely, I hope.
I’m sorry to learn that like many others, you also had to leave motherland during the partition. Religion never demands us what we demand from it. And, so is created fanaticism! Never can it bring any good for the mass, just a few will continue exploiting others devoid of reason. I never bother about what religion I belong to or what others belong to. But things are not always conducive as they should be. I’m forced to think otherwise. What I do is I just leave the company of those. I’ve still a long way to pass in my life. I don’t know how far I can go doing such, but I’ll try my best.
Dada, I have a lot of relatives residing in Kolkata. Most of my relatives from my maternal side are there. I’ve got a plan to visit India within 2 or 3 years and I’ll surely meet you when I’m there. Waiting for that moment. Before that, facebook is good enough to serve its purpose. If you visit Dhaka, just give me a ring. My number is available in my profile info.
I’m also so impressed to find an elder brother who shares some common traits with me, even academic background. It’s really a rare opportunity to have someone possessing a similar soul. Looking forward to sharing more ideas and developing a lasting relationship…
Have a great day ahead. Thank you.

: Tu Mujhe Soch Kabhi…………….for you….it’s a lovely love song.
This song is dedicated to my love which was never mine. I guess so….
: So sweet of you, my dear…
: ‘Sweet’ is again a boring word and ‘dear’ is horrible…coz I can visualize an old English ‘Ma’am’.
: Sometimes I rather prefer a blend…

“Nothing rules forever”… We need some Argentine supporters, not Anti-Brazilian supporters!!
I wonder who supported Argentina before the so-called “Goal by the Hand of God”!… Anyway, we must confess that Brazil failed to present a classic game from their side.
I humbly request all my friends not to behave or write in a way that might hurt someone’s ego. You really don’t have any right to hurt anyone’s ego. (You can also remove me from your friend list if you want me to teach you courtesy. I’m not such a great teacher!) A person with least the sense of personality never does it. I confess that Brazil failed to play the game we really expect from them. This never means that they’re not a deserving team for this World Cup. Let’s not be just stereotypical, rather be logical. Thanks.
… Thank you for conveying your thought… What if Brazil or Argentina or Germany or the Netherlands or any team else wins the cup or not? No one would attribute the credit to us, that is, our nation, our country. What we can merely expect as ordinary viewers is just a good game and better criticism. We needn’t be fanatic about the result, nobody would pay the least tribute for such ‘loyalty’!… Let’s hold our thumbs up for the team that really deserves it. An impartial view always makes things better. Thanks.
… Thank you all for sharing your valuable views on my wall. Though ours is not a World Cup playing country, we always look forward to any genuine source of entertainment. Interestingly enough, the whole country is literally divided into two groups: Argentine and Brazilian (compare the initial letters as found in Awami league and BNP!). The people of the first-world countries are not so crazy about football as we seem to be (ask an American or a British or a French or anyone from any participant country else). However, we’re quite happy with our little bliss, sorrows. We live by our smiles and tears sharing our excitements and frustrations together. Such goes on our life…
I’ve always been and am still a Brazilian supporter. The match of the last evening was a total fiasco and dumped me like other supporters. It’s true that they failed to play the classic rhythmic football as we, the ordinary viewers, expect from them. Mr. Dunga is largely responsible for such a disaster, as popularly believed. The Argentine players are really presenting a fair game contrary to the performance they showed in the last World Cup (they had to bid goodbye from the first round). Their playing style really deserves praise. I’m really grateful to them for presenting the rhythm that the Brazilian footballers was once accustomed to. Hope they will keep this spirit up in the match of this evening against another top favourite Germany. Wish them all the best…..
………… “actually in our country, most persons are not supporters……they are anti-supporters”….. nicely commented!! Truer than true!!……… I also want that Netherlands or Spain win the cup. They should be awarded for their commitment and devotion. Thanks.
… If Bangladesh lost today’s match, I would shoulder the shame willingly. Now, what we can keep our fingers crossed for is just a fair match and better impartial game. I don’t know how amply would the fanatic supporters be rewarded for their ‘loyalty’…. I’m sure that even in Brazil or Argentina there are not so many ‘stupid’ flag hoisting competitions as we’ve seen in our country…. Let’s wait for enjoying fair matches…

Friends! What type of human behaviour disturbs you most? Please share….
… Really it is so. Such people have a very low sense of dignity. Thanks.
… True. Arrogant people generally hide some of their weak points by showing arrogance. Thanks.Swapan… Thanks for sharing your views…. Let’s not pretend to know what we never learnt…. Let’s not preach what we ourselves don’t follow…. Let’s wait and see what the Govt does about the war criminals…. Govt officials should develop a sense of commitment towards the country…. Let there be light!
…. Only the persons who lack the sense of personality disrespect others’ feelings to hide their own weak points. We must uplift the sense of self-dignity to ignore such people…. Thanks.
…. Selfishness usually consists of two aspects: Self-centredness and Self-consciousness. The first one degrades our acceptability to others while the second one creates newer dimensions of acceptability to others….. Thanks.
…. To me, secular persons are those who pretend to be secular living in the society whose norms they don’t like. Can anyone truly be secular?…. Thanks.
……….. Stubbornness sometimes pays……… Stubbornness does have its helpful features. You always know what you’re going to be thinking tomorrow.
………. The truest characters of ignorance are vanity, and pride and arrogance. A conceit is God’s gift to little men.
……..In adults who commit serious and heinous crimes, we see some psychopaths who are evil people with evil intent and actually enjoy a degree of pleasure from committing serious crimes,… We don’t see this in children. Children very rarely are evil or bad.

Friends! What is the most important quality that makes a man ‘a gentleman’? Please share your opinion…
… That’s the goal, not the means. Thanks.
….. Straightforwardness pays better, even if it doesn’t, there is always something left to feel paid!! Thanks.
…… I think these three qualities must be attributed to oneself at first. Others around naturally feel the result. Thanks.
…… Thanks for sharing your view. Would you please tell me how can a person live without assuming and expecting? I agree to your last point.
……. Thanks for your comment. I’d like to put forward your view in a somewhat modified way………”If u wanna be only gentle you must not be outspoken outspokenly…” (Being outspoken is important for being honest to yourself.)
……. That’s the initiative when someone really needs to take it. Thanks.
……. Thanks for sharing your idea. I think a gentleman is a man who respects ladies and makes a woman behave like a lady while talking to him!!
….. Really a highly commendable comprehensive approach you’ve furnished here!! Let me add some…..
*A gentleman is someone who has a respect for those around him and will act in an honoring fashion, even in the face of adversity. That doesn’t mean he won’t disagree, but if he does, it will not disrespect or look down upon the other’s belief.
*He interprets everything for the best. He does not stoop to meanness in disputes. Even towards his enemies, he behaves in a manner as if they were going to his friends one day.
* A true gentleman is one who hurts nobody either by words or by deeds. He tries his best to make everyone feel at ease. He freely offers his help towards removing difficulties from the path of others. He is very considerate and carefully avoids controversial discussion. He never monopolizes a conversation. He is never offended at the follies of those he is talking with. If he does a favour to any person he does not let him feel that he has done any. He is not self-centered. He does not attend to idle gossips.
Please feel free to add some more if you have any. Thanks!!
…… Thanks a lot for reading me and writing on my wall. A true gentleman is polite to everyone, in action and words. A gentleman tells about others more politely than he is supposed to. He never becomes a slave to the moment, rather tries to make the moment his slave. A sense of self-respect never lets him attack others making things objectionable. Please feel free to add some more if you feel like adding.
Dear friends, apart from the points I’ve furnished above, most importantly, I think, a gentleman must not do anything that might cause inconvenience or discomfort to another person. Thanks a lot for sparing your time to read me and write on my wall.
…….. It’s really a great pleasure of mine to see your dignified presence on my wall. I sincerely feel honoured to be in the midst of your thoughts!! Thanks. Now, please let me share more…………
It is almost a definition of a gentleman to say he is one who never inflicts pain. This description is both refined and, as far as it goes, accurate. He is mainly occupied in merely removing the obstacles which hinder the free and unembarrassed action of those about him, and he concurs with their movements rather than takes the initiative himself.
The true gentleman in like manner carefully avoids whatever may cause a jar or a jolt in the minds of those with whom he is cast; — all clashing of opinion, or collision of feeling, all restraint, or suspicion, or gloom, or resentment; his great concern being to make everyone at their case and at home.
He has his eyes on all his company; he is tender towards the bashful, gentle towards the distant, and merciful towards the absurd; he can recollect to whom he is speaking; he guards against unseasonable allusions or topics which may irritate; he is seldom prominent in conversation, and never wearisome. He makes light of favours while he does them, and seems to be receiving when he is conferring.
He never speaks of himself except when compelled, never defends himself by a mere retort, he has no ears for slander or gossip, is scrupulous in imputing motives to those who interfere with him, and interprets everything for the best.
He is never mean or little in his disputes never takes unfair advantage, never mistakes personalities or sharp sayings for arguments, or insinuates evil which he dare not say out. From a long-sighted prudence, he observes the maxim of the ancient sage, that we should ever conduct ourselves towards our enemy as if he were one day to be our friend.
He has too much good sense to be affronted at insults, he is too well employed to remember injuries, and too indolent to bear malice. He is patient, forbearing, and resigned, on philosophical principles; he submits to pain, because it is inevitable, to bereavement, because it is irreparable, and to death, because it is his destiny. If he engages in controversy of any kind, his disciplined intellect preserves him from the blunder.
Last but not least, I earnestly further invite more of your ideas about a gentleman if you would like to add to mine. Thanks.

Is poverty a curse of honesty? Or, is honesty an excuse of poverty? Friends, what’s your opinion?
I think, there are two ways of being honest… Being honest to our passion… And, being passionate for our honesty… The first way elevates our personality… The second one raises our conceit subconsciously and we develop a dishonest attitude in our thoughts and actions…. Most of the poor people are poor because they don’t want or simply don’t know how to think and work for wealth, yet fabricate stories of honesty only as the means of self-complacency!! Being honest is only being committed to what we’re and what we want to be….

What is this life if full of care?… We’ve no time to stand and stare?….. I’d some time wasted already, yet I’ve some to waste… I never regret it….. Life never gives you a second chance to miss the first chance!!

Music makes or unmakes my mind. I live with music, by music.
Dear friends… Life feels so good…. AAll IzZ Welll!!……. Music is magic, magic is music.
Our life is a song, the best gift bestowed upon us during our birth……. Let’s live for it. Let’s sing for it. Life is a music heard by soul, not by ears.
Music never lies, even we can never lie when there is music in our soul. I think music defines what life is, to be more precise, what life is supposed to be. Our soul echoes when music stops. When our soul stops, music echoes. We can never listen to it until we feel it.
Thank you. I’m a bit irregular in updating my status these days…. Last evening, I felt like crying while listening to some ghazals and wrote those few lines.
Music makes me feel the subtle presence of my soul. My thoughts soar higher and higher with music searching the royal road to eternity. Hats off to the singers and musicians. They’re the greatest magicians the world has ever seen.
I feel my moods best through music… My emotion raises my heart when I bath in music.

I think, when we attack a person’s personality, we reveal our weakness of mind lowering our own personality. Self-dignity always breeds from respect for others’ feelings.

Dear friends! Do you think that a teenager or a young boy/girl most often confuses ‘smartness’ with ‘shamelessness’?
I often wonder, whether a stupid generation complacent with and proud of its stupidity is a gift of civilization or, civilization can’t but make its way pervertedly to some silly stupids making them victims of a so-called smart culture!!
Now, we have a generation whose members claim themselves to be the followers of western essence, but they’re just blind slaves of western culture!! They never bother about inner illumination, they just try to fool away their gender-based counterparts through their outer stupid gestures. Is it not a sheer crisis of civilization?
I often sigh for my studious youth! What will be left for them to sigh over when they’ve passed the youth? We also passed our teenage. We enjoyed being silly, doing foolish acts but felt the urge to be out of that track too and accordingly, did something to turn out to be smart. I wonder, how can some of their heads work without brain!! They never feel sorry for their ignorance. They hate reading poetry but like writing it!! They never try to know what love it but fall in love 24 times a day!!! Is it not pathetic to see some souls chained?
A teenaged or a young boy is often found attending the gym to raise his muscles above his shoulder but lowers his brain under his knees!! How can he expect others to think him handsome?
A teenaged or a young girl often seems to be lovely as long as she doesn’t open her mouth! Once she starts talking, a smart guy is sure to lose interest in her!
Please don’t take my comment as a generalized observation. I sincerely feel worried for such a misguided generation.
We’re experiencing a ‘confused generation’. Teenaged boys and girls often wait to be confused and so it’s really easy to confuse them with the simplest confidence trick! How can they hope of participating in greater decision-making without knowing what to decide and how to decide?
It’s never a good idea to generalize things because some things are not really general. There are some persons who are always out of the 10 you can count. I personally feel a sharp contrast between our generation and the present generation. As I teach some students, I’ve been with a good number of teenaged and young minds for at least 8 years. I feel really surprised when I see that almost all of them have no taste for reading what isn’t required for passing the exam. They don’t read literature, as they think it won’t pay them in exams. They never go through poems though they write a good number of poems for their boyfriends or girlfriends. Just guess what type of indigestible DJ type poetic feeling they have. It’s often horrible even to imagine what they can think, feel or don’t think, feel…… They’re never convinced of things they can’t imagine or think. It’s really so easy to persuade them to do things they’re not supposed to do…… Now it’s really a world of fast things, viz fast food, fast study, fast dress, or even fast dating! Can you imagine what would happen to these fast generation when they’re left behind once and can’t proceed only because they’ve no knowledge how and why they’re fast!!….. They like a nice haircut, a nice look, a nice appearance… How long such things last really? Who will command the honour of others at the end of the day? What is the use of showing smartness without being smart? Is smartness just a thing to be seen not be understood? Such smart poor fellows are really miserable… Just leave them in the midst of some enlightened persons and see what happens. Just tell them to write on a topic in English, they’ll start crying in English instead of writing in English. I have the experience, I can tell you how they’re busy just worrying about how to showdown themselves with a muscular body, latest mobile phone, reckless speeches, slang words, hanging out with boyfriends or girlfriends and so many thousands of nuisances!!….. In most cases, they’re emotionally abused, psychologically blackmailed, mentally indecisive, and so they lack the power to judge what self-dignity is…… The elders are often intimidated whenever they try to rectify the teens. They think they understand well enough, there’s no need to try to make them understand!
Thanks for reading me.

Every girl wants to be appreciated for her beauty, no matter whether she has it or not. So, you can’t be a good lover without being a better liar… Friends! Agree? Or, not?
First of all, I humbly beg your apology if my status message sounds objectionable to anyone of you. I know, I’m never good at dealing with girls. It’s often because I can’t tell lies with them (I confess, it’s because of my nervousness while talking to them…lol), sometimes because I consider many of them as my younger sisters (holy fool, as my friends call me) and sometimes because of my introvert nature (to be more specific, because of shyness). Now let me share some of my experience… (Please share yours too)
1. A girl once asked me how beautiful she looked. I also asked her how long it was she had last stood before the mirror. And, she stopped talking to me forever…. I’m happy as I hate lies!!
2. My female friend (please, don’t read it ‘girlfriend’) once asked me what people should appreciate the most — her beauty? or, her figure? or, her brain?… I answered her, I didn’t know about others, but I must appreciate her ‘sense of humour’!!… She lacked the sense of humour proving me wrong and never talked to me after that day…. I don’t know why people hate truths!!
3. Now, let me tell about some beautiful girls… A girl was really beautiful, her smile, her eyes, her face…. Trust me, friends, everything was ok until she opened her mouth… There were some other burdened with all the beauties of the world paid in the exchange with all the brains of her beautiful head!! Too highly she had to pay for her beauty, no doubt!!
Now, is it that beauty and brain don’t coexist? No friends, rarely they do…. My observation is, in most cases, beautiful women gifted with brain as well, are married….
Another observation… I admit that ‘love is blind’ and couples are rarely matched. Just look at the couples… They prove this paradox very cruelly. I don’t know why God is so unjust in this case….
Last but not least, I must say that some love stories surpass all our assumptions. These couples experience real love (a ghost that all of us tell about though none of us have seen it)…. We, the stupids, often fall in love without knowing what love is.
Thanks for reading me.

Now, I can feel that my brain is a masterpiece. On its right side, nothing is right; on its left side, nothing is left!! Grrrrrr…..
…. You’re most welcome to do the job, madam…. But you don’t need to ‘reshape’ my brain, just try to ‘shape’ it. It’s still fresh, I’ve not used it yet.
… When my mind fails, my brain speaks. When my mind doesn’t fail, my stupid brain speaks again!
… I know, you, the architects, do the best when you do something with virgin staffs. I’m not an architect, but a stupid computer engineer who likes to make staffs virgin after having them programmed!!….lolz.
…. The fact is, the Lord created me as a masterpiece. Later on, my parents tried to recreate my brain and thus the earlier masterpiece was lost…. I was born genius, education ruined me.

I’m so happy today to declare my younger brother Prashanta Paul a qualified student of CAT (Certified Accounting Technician), a worldwide recognized professional course of Accounting. Friends! Please pray for his future success and professional betterment.
My dear friends!
Please accept my heartfelt gratitude for your kind wish and felicitation on his success. Friends should never be far away while celebrating.
It’s really a nice feeling to celebrate the academic success of a younger brother or sister. My brother’s accomplishments always give me more pleasure than mine. Younger brothers or sisters never grow old, they just grow up, I think. His smiling face is the greatest gift I can ever think of.
He has attained this success besides running my giftshop ‘DOVANA’ (along with his friend) and hopefully enough, this business maintenance has already provided a real-field orientation for him regarding the inter-personal relationship, office management and above all, a professional attitude-formation. Through this success, he has stepped forward to the second phase of the professional course, ACCA (Association of Certified Chartered Accountants).
Let’s wish him every success.
Wow! I really feel very blessed to be in the midst of a constellation of friends like you. I don’t know whether I deserve such great care of such precious friends. Thank you for being with me in this pleasant moment.
If you ever see my brother, you’ll be surprised how much he resembles my face, my appearance (you can see him in my photo album) though he is junior to me by 4 years. One dissimilarity is, he is not a bookworm like me (with due apology), but he knows better what to read, why to read and how to read. Yes, he is still accustomed to a lot of childish thoughts and tasks even at this age of 22! He never grows old, just grows up!
I’m sorry for writing much about him if it creates annoyance for you. I’m eagerly waiting for the day when he would be ACCA qualified and I can celebrate with all of you with a big party. Yes, I promise a big celebration.
May he retain the strength for crossing the next hurdles.
Thanks a ton for your dignified presence on my wall.
…. Yes, you commented on his pictures, I can remember. He takes after me so much…. I highly appreciate your friendly approach and it’s really nice to meet you here on facebook… I feel honoured at your kind promise. Thank you.
My dear friends! I think I could pay back the loan of gold, but I’m afraid I would die forever in debt to you for being so kind as to share my joys!!
How beautiful success can be
When congratulation touches it!
I would thank you from the bottom of my heart, but for you, my heart has no bottom.

OK tell me one thing what do you have against smiling… well…look at your pix…. where are the pearlies?
: My dear sisters Ritu, Sarada & Sharmila…
Happy Rakhi Bondhon Day… Yes, we’ll live together forever. It’s not a promise, you can never promise a bond destined by the communion of souls… Right?…
… When there’s a smile in heart, what’s the use of smile on face?……. How can I stop smiling when I’ve many reasons not to stop it? I’ve such caring sisters like you. You’re the pearls of my heart, the joy of my soul. Forget about my foolish profile picture, my camera-face is hardly convincing, I know!…lol… Any suggestion regarding it would be highly appreciated…..
It’s always great to feel there are some to make your day. Who can feel it better than this stupid brother of yours?…
Thank you, my dear sisters, for making me feel what I’m and what you’re…

What color is your personality? – BLACK
Sushanta result: BLACK
You demand a calm environment, free of conflict and disagreement. You prefer natural to artificial. You are capable of being comfortable in conditions that would bother others. You are not easily disconcerted. You enjoy attention but are unsure of how to handle it. Just treat others as you’d like to be treated. It works!
: It’s one of the few facebook quizzes that really revealed my taste!!

Sign on Motorway Garage: ” PLEASE DO NOT SMOKE NEAR OUR PETROL PUMPS. YOUR LIFE MAY NOT BE WORTH MUCH BUT OUR PETROL IS. “
We should never have any bitter feeling for anyone who is creating problems for us through smoking….. It might be his/her last cigarette and he/she might not get a second chance to disturb us more….lol……..
I often wonder why the smoke of a cigarette always comes to a non-smoker and offends him/her!! There are also other directions for it to go…!
………. FB icon!! Who told you this, dada?……….. Giving up smoking is easy…many of my friends have done it hundreds of times!! I just request the smokers not to cause inconveniences for the non-smokers. Everyone has the right to die early, but he must not make others die early!

People may deface any word as their own consent as their concern grow up.
We usually try to want what we want, but we can’t always want what we really want… So, the choice made isn’t always fair..

: Thanks for connecting with me. My father’s family came from Chittagong a very very long time ago!
: Hello! It’s nice to meet you on facebook. I feel glad to find a friend rooted in Chittagong. Hope to share more ideas and thoughts from now on. Keep in touch…. Take care.
: Nice to make your acquaintance too! It was a long time ago – they went from Chittagong to Rangoon and then to Calcutta during WWII and then to Kuala Lumpur after Independence!
: Hello dada,
You have a very diverse family background. I heard of such cases but never heard of a family that finally settled in Malaysia. It’s really nice to be your facebook friend. I guess you’re a writer. If you’re please let me know. I have a great love for literature and I adore those who are also in this trend….. Hope to share more with you next time.
: Hi Sushanta, it’s ‘Didi’ not ‘Dada’ I think Yes, I am a children’s book writer. I’ve already published 4 books and two more on the way (although I wouldn’t consider them as literature yet!) Cheers!
: Ohho didi! I’m really sorry. I should have had a closer look at your profile earlier. Please forgive my idiocy….. It’s great that there’re already four books to your credit and two more to see the light soon. I feel honoured to write and be written. Didi, please let me know how I can go through your books. Can I procure them from Bangladesh? What type of juvenile literature are you interested in? Waiting to hear from you….. Take care.
: No problem and thanks for taking an interest in my books! I think they can be ordered online www.mphonline.com I write stories based on Asian folklore.

: Yes Sush…I’m up to a lot mischief today Here are some thoughts for you…
Study is Healthy.. hence you should leave it for the Sick… also keep in mind… No Noise in Class: You Disturb those asleep
: Didi….. I never like to disturb those who’re asleep as I hate to be disturbed…. Yes, study is healthy. When I study, I keep in mind that I must take breaks to feel hungry, not feeling hungry. Studying a lot means taking a lot of breaks and so I study a lot.
It’s nice to hear from you.
: LOL anything ‘moti’vations will do.
: Like sister, like brother.
: Enjoy!… Karunesh plays in my car.. love it driving through the hills….
: ………. one of the best-known New Age artists playing with the rhythm of soul!!
Thank you, didi, for sharing this link.
We do enjoy Singleness of soul!! Truly he is the master of compassion!

the common fact behind “It’s complicated” relationship status on facebook……. the last refuge of the cheaters, an excuse of the persons without principles!!
Dear friends, I’m sorry if I sound rude… But, just think, those who claim their relationship as ‘complicated’, must bear the courage to call a spade a spade….. Such persons are usually of two types: Cheaters who like to leave a relationship undecided… And… Liars who are either married, divorced, or single (or, dumped by someone)…
দিদি, আমি মোটেও পাজি হইনি। হতে চাইলে, অনেক আগেই হতে পারতাম। মানুষের শঠতা আমাকে খুব কষ্ট দেয়, তাই এই কথাগুলো না বলে পারলাম না। যার মধ্যে কোনো principle নেই, সে আবার মানুষ নাকি?
: Aren’t all relationships complicated sometimes? The complication is just a part of life. No big deal.
: Yes, no big deal, just a fair deal is needed. It’s my principle. I live by this.
: A person who hasn’t faced hardships, complication, can joke abt it. God forbid that something like that happens to u. If it does, it will no longer remain a joke…..
: True… O My dear friend, our life itself is a Big Joke when we lack the sense of humour to grasp the Joke! Any intention not implied but taken might be enough to spoil the Joke..
: Complicated joke. Hehehehe.
: It’s not complicated, it’s not simple either. It’s just a joke. We’re here to make it simple, to make it complicated. At the end of the day, it remains just a joke.

Dear friends! If anyone of you has celebrated today’s Eid leaving your parents in Old Homes, please remove me from your friend-list… my apology…
…. I just watched a TV report on how helplessly some old parents have to pass such occasions in Old Homes. Their silent cry touched my soul and filled my heart with a passionate resentment. I really felt pity for those miserable so-called sons/daughters and could not resist my tears…. I’m sorry if my comment spoils the joy, but I just couldn’t help sharing it with you. Please let’s not be ungrateful ever.
…. I never compromise with my principles, no matter it’s noble or mean to others. Everyone in the world is going to hurt you, your sentiment, your feeling, your emotion. It’s never a fair deal, you know. And, I think, I’ve no right to stand on the way a person thinks or likes to think. So, my apology can’t but accompany my request… Thanks, dear.
: Lectures!! Write me a nice sweet poem instead my soul is all but demanding for sweet words.
….. Lectures?! My sincere apology again!… How dare I make MV listen to my rubbish words?! Please never take my lines as they’re not even if they don’t sound as they’re for my ignorance…..
Poem? Ok dear, please go through my note, ‘Broken Appointments of Love’. That would be enough for now…. My brain has started conspiring with me these days.
…. It’s not morality, it’s just as our principle should be. Morality stays at a far elevated plane.
: ..I too agree with you on this status. Parents give up the best time of their life and youth to bring us up and we ruthlessly put them in those old age homes. What a price they have to pay for giving us the best and make us capable to survive in this world! There is nothing in this world that can pay them for the sacrifices they have done for us.
: My dear friends!….. Good Morning. Have a nice day ahead.
: ….. None of us wants to age, but aging is inevitable making us insecure, forgetful and fearful. Yes, the elderly can easily become a burden to the families they once provided and protected. The children who once vied for their parents’ attention are now consumed with their own affairs that they hardly can ever manage to visit. For many parents, the stench of ammonia in a hospital-like atmosphere of a nursing/old home is worse than death. To most of them, it signifies loneliness, cruelty and abandonment. With all the turmoil involved in the aging process, it is no wonder that we’re heading towards a generation of frightened adults, forever searching for that magical youth serum from the elusive fountain of youth. The picture is not so horrible in the Oriental societies yet as in the Western ones, but things seem to be changing now. I still hold a very very conservative view regarding familial bondage and values….. Thanks for reading my wall.
: …. I know I’m not an easy guy to put up with. It’s my parents who did the best for this worst son. For them, I’m what I’m and I’m not what I’m not. Yes, the greatest deal they’ve made for me. They do what they’re supposed to and even what they’re not supposed to…. I’ve not seen God, but I’ve seen my parents. It’s enough for my prayer, for my worship. God has always been second to my parents and teachers.
: ….. You always have kind words for me. So great of you….. These days, I’m really lacking poetic insights, I don’t know the reason, but it happens. Hope to be back to my blissful days, and I’m working on it. I’d pass over this intervention, for sure!…….. I sigh for my studious youth……. Would you not forgive my temporary stupidity?
:…. We often think that we’d be wiser than our parents when we reach that age, but we always forget that we might have a son/daughter at that time who might also think so and do the same to us as we’re doing to our parents. This process is reversible, no doubt. Some of us fail to understand the trauma of their parents with a drop in income and growing infirmity and such a failure results in dwindling the parents’ confidence and sense of security. I’ve even seen some houses where the old parents are relegated to the position of housekeepers and babysitters. No wonder, the life of such indignity, dependence, and resignation often makes them start awaiting death. Can we ever escape from paying our dues when it’s time for payment? If our children are taught to celebrate occasions without their grandparents, time will come, when their children would be taught the same!!
: Will forgive you anything my sweet! And am sure it will be worth!!
: …. The worth of a thing is something you give to it. And, dear, I’m grateful to you for showing such magnanimity.
:…….. দিদি, গতকাল বৈশাখী টিভিতে একটা রিপোর্ট দেখলাম বৃদ্ধাশ্রমে আমাদেরই বাবা-মায়েরা কত কষ্টে আছে, সেটি নিয়ে।…….বেঁচে আছে শুধু মৃত্যুর প্রহর গোনার জন্যই। অনাহূত হয়ে বেঁচেথাকা তো মৃত্যুরই আয়োজন, তাই না? বিশ্বাস করুন, অনেক কষ্ট পেয়েছি ব্যাপারটা ভেবে, তাই বন্ধুদের সাথে শেয়ার না করে পারলাম না।……মাথায় বাজছিল নচিকেতার সেই গানটি…………ওই গান শুনে কাঁদেনি, এমন মানুষ বোধহয় খুঁজে পাওয়া যাবে না, গানটা একেবারে আমাদের অনুভবের জায়গাটায় গিয়ে আঘাত করে, যতবারই শুনি, চোখ ভিজে যায়……
:….. Dost, I think I’ve no worth of being friends with such so-called elite-class people. I personally know a person who has 2 Ph.D.’s and is thought to be a highly sophisticated intellectual. There was no room left for his parents in his enormous apartment though it has accommodated some pets and servants. Is it called aristocracy? Is it called culture? What is the use of all the wealth of the world if you’ve lost your own soul?
