Happy Life

So, it’s going on.

You can’t say yourself happy unless you are happy. Life isn’t so easy at all – at least here in Dhaka which is declared by Economist as 2nd worst city in the world!

You’ll never know how long you have to wait under the burning sun for a transportation. So the definition of happiness is a term which we have to consider when we’re staying at home.

Have a look to the picture above. it’s from my balcony. I do water it everyday.

Few updates of my work: well, things around me has changed too fast in last couple of months. This is a site I’ve designed few months ago for Dropndot which was selected as a best site. This is a new kind of recognition of my work and I am feeling great about it.

Right now I am working with building an ad network which is quit a new experience for me. I hope I can tell you more about it later. Yesterday I’ve launched another sleepless night idea with one of my colleagues which you may have a look too.

Waiting Makes You Philosopher, or Anything You Want to Be

The Terminal is my most favorite movie for all the time. Life is waiting. We wait, we have to wait. Sometime waiting makes us feeling good, often its painful. But still we have to wait.

I’ve been waiting my whole life, I just don’t know what the hell for.

Amelia, The Terminal

I can hear a music very unfamiliar… I never heard this tune. Someone is playing a guitar in a very wonderful way. I usually listen to music when I wait. But this time waiting isn’t wasting of time. That day when I was waiting under the open sky, a rain drop touched me. I’d love to wait my whole life for being touched by such a drop of rain.

Waiting makes you a human being, a philosopher or anything you want to be.

Boshonto, the season of flowers

bosonter rong…
[it’s one of my oldest post. first i’ve published it in my msn space a year back. it’s still one of my favorite writing.]

tomorrow is ‘pohela falgun’ – the 1st day of Spring… we called it ‘boshonto’ in Bangla. its one of the most colorful festival here. i don’t know why, but people use ‘yellow shades’ to represent the boshonto. girls wear yellow sharis, boys wear panjabi (i never do it, because it seems little funny to me)… mostly those boys and girls who are in an affair try to celebrate this day. it got a different meaning since last few years. 13 february is pohela falgun, 14 february is valentine day. so these two days became a synonyms for each other. we are a lucky nation…people around the world celebrate valentine day just for one day, but we celebrate it double day.

Three stories

1. The biggest festival Eid-ul-Azha is knocking on the door. People are hurrying to buy cattle. You could see hundreds of happy ‘cowboy’ on the streets. I think people enjoy this part of the eid very much. But there are some other anxieties that might happen. Today on the way to my home I saw a small crowd. I stopped there to see what happened. A bull was lying down on the ground motionlessly and the ‘cowboy’ was very disappointed with the situation. Normally during the eid season the cattle traders bring these cattle from different parts of the country and abroad. Sometime it takes weeks and the cattle starve most of the time.

2. It was my sister’s wedding anniversary and I was thinking to present them something. I am not in a position to give them an expensive present. Flowers came to my mind and I thought it would be great. But suddenly I got busy with some other job and forgot to buy them. Then I got a call from my sister and they offered me a dinner in a restaurant. I went there with bare hands. I was feeling little bad for not being able to present them at least some flowers. It was almost late night when we get back home and most of the shops were closed. But suddenly I saw the only one flowers shop of our area is still open. It made me feel very good. I bought a bunch of flowers and give it to my sister immediately. My nephew was very happy and he told me that he’ll present me such flowers when I’ll throw such a party…

3. Few minutes ago I got a message. This was a good time for getting the message for which I was expecting all through the day. I was on the rickshaw and I couldn’t able to see the message just after the message tone. I was hoping whole heartedly that it’ll be the desired message and I was taking time to see it. I came to my room, turned on the light, took a deep breath, unlock my mobile and then saw the message with a big expectation. It’s a silly slang from one of my friend! Everything turned into blank. I know this friend of mine never realized that his message could affect me so badly. My brain didn’t work for few minutes… then I realized I shouldn’t blame him. It’s my fault. I should be aware properly about what I can expect and what I can’t.
