A Story to be Told

Necessity is the mother of invention, literature is the grandchild of crisis!

Last five months, most of the space of my brain was captivated by one single idea – hot to tell a story about an ongoing history.

After multiple attempts finally it’s published now! I choose Medium as the publishing platform because it’s easier to write long stories there.

I was not always very happy in working at G&R. I actually attempted to quit several times and plan my career in a whole different way. But somehow I wasn’t able to do that. Love often causes pain and for some strange reason, we always accept it, and often enjoy it.

From The Untold Story of a Bangladeshi Startup

Some stories to be told loudly as most people don’t want to hear – we all are busy with telling our stories.

It was the Best of Times, It was the Worst of Times!

Life around me is changing a lot for last few months. Some of these were too fast that they became history before I noticed. Some of these were too long seemed like never ending! I saw people – how they act and how they react! Some actions were interesting, some were heartbreaking. But somehow they were good for me.

I’ve learnt once again nothing is so important in life!

These days I am working lot. I don’t know for what but I am always in a hurry. I am working with the establishment of a dedicated digital advertising agency which I think is going to be something new in bangladesh.

The Prothom Alo blog which was my last project in my previous office got published few weeks ago. That was another dream project for me but I don’t know why… I didn’t feel any excitement watching that live.

Life is changing, so I am!

Am I going to be famous?

The new Prothom Alo website was launched last 16 September. Within last two weeks we have experienced ‘something’ which are really very new to all of us. Prothom Alo had published an ad on that day in their printed newspaper announcing the lunching of their new website which has brought million of visitors to the newly launched website.

According to Alexa, on this day Prothom-Alo.com got the highest visitors within it’s present history. That was wonderful; again alarming for us. We should agree that we had some limitations which has caused sufferings for many visitors – they simply didn’t able to reach the website.

But within few hours we were able to fix most of the primary obstacles. After that we start getting feedbacks from the users. We received more than three thousands of feedback within just 48 hours! It’s true there were some feedback criticising the new design, some of them were really worth taking and we are still trying to combine them to the website.

Well, today Prothom Alo published an article about this new website. They mentioned our name in the article… ha ha ha! Am i going to be famous? It’s something new to me and the truth is I am feeling good.

Thanks Prothom Alo!

Love Around Me :: Love is a Matter of Practice!

It seems Anger, grief, jealousy, regret… these are different dimension of love. These are part of a chain reaction which happens with love. Nothing happens if there is no action like love.

I am thinking lot about this matter for last few days. Do love is a matter of practice? I am not sure but it seems like that. Nobody is more important in my life except me. Naturally we are so forgetful… as it’s a key point of our survival. Everyday we are adding new things to our memory which creating distances with the past.

Yesterday is like history – so today’s love could be a history by day after tomorrow if there is no update tomorrow.

a dying history

panam city

Yesterday we went to sonargaon museum and panam city. It was my first visit there and I was really curious about this old historical place. Panam city was the capital of this region once upon a time. There are still some old buildings of that time standing. The buildings seem something like dummy for a movie comparing today’s structure. The famous one is ‘rajbari’ (palace) which I think the biggest one still surviving. We went there with a hope to take some pictures of it. But the gate was close with a notice hanging there ‘it’s a industrial restricted place’. We surprised… what kind of industry! Then we asked some people around about it and they told us that the palace now owns someone who set up a tyres factory inside it! We tried to enter the place but they didn’t permit. When we were looking the other buildings we find us so poor, so illiterate nation. It seems no one care about these ‘useless’ buildings. We are loosing our history everyday.
