The Ancient Civilization of PUTHIA

Puthia, a half an hour drive from Rajshahi main town, is a town of ancient beauty and structures. I visited this place last weekend as a part of my Rajshahi trip. My trip would not be fulfilled if I did not have visited this place. These structure, buildings are very old... Our guide told us this little empire was built in Mughol Era. I'm not sure as I have not researched about it. But it was surely built a long ago. The hand made art works are just wonderful! I tried to take some snaps. Check them out... All the pictures were taken at ancient structures of Puthia.

The 1st Mandir we visited at Puthia, this picture was taken from the front gate
Another one, this is located inside the ancient Puthia palace
Side view
Beautiful artwork on the body of strong round pillars
Front Wall..... full of wonderful arts on it
I guess these arts have special meaning!
Look how precise they are!
A broken building of the Kingdom
I'm speechless!
Miron and Me at the Mandir
I don't know what is this thing. I just saw it was hung on the side door of the 2nd Mandir we visited
The weather was damn hot, but inside this white age old building, there was an awesome cool breeze... we were simply amazed to discover it!Front view of the main Palace. It does look like a palace... does not it?
Corridor of the last Mandir we visited at Puthia
This is solely made of precious Blackstone! Priceless!
At the back passage of the Mandir, the pond was a great sight too!

  1. Oh those ancient places! they are always so magical! We have so many anciet places here too and i looove visiting them. They are like food for your eyes and spirit.

    There were people talking, singing, dancing, fighting and so many other things probably happened in front of these damaged walls. Just the thought of being in the exact same place with them is incredible enough.

    Thanks for sharing again.

  2. You are absolutely right... They do meet up the thirst of our eyes! And it sounds really magical the way you feel these places. :)
    Thanks for your visit honey.

Heroin: The Deadly Addiction

“People believe that heroin is super, but you lose everything: job, parents, friends, confidence, your home. Lying and stealing become a habit. You no longer respect anyone or anything.”- Pete

"Heroin", one of the deadliest drugs of this world. According to BBC, there are 50 million regular users of heroin, cocaine and synthetic drugs worldwide. In most cases, these 50 million users didn't even realize when they became addicted. They started taking it as fun, as experiment, as accompanying someone who was already addicted.
Let's hear it from the voice of some people who eventually got addicted to heroin. For privacy issue, names or any kind of IDs of those people are not disclosed here.
Story 1:
"Was already mentally addicted to oxy, with the beginning point of some mild physical addiction symptoms. Oxy was expensive though, and my tolerance was going up. One day I was with my friend (who has become the biggest heroin user I know fwiw) and we were getting some …

টং দোকান (Tong Dokan)

Since I moved here in Canada, I have been missing so many things... My family, my friends, that easy life where my parents used to take care of everything, those endless hangouts and so many other things... I even miss those things which I used to hate back in my country... like load shedding, traffic jams and so on... But I am not gonna write about these things... Today I will babble a bit about 'Tong Dokan'. I know those who don't know Bengali, don't have any idea what I am talking about... But don't worry... I will write a whole post about it now.. I am gonna tell about how this is related to my life, how this is related to every person in Bangladesh..

A busy highway. There is a lot of noise. Loud horns from different type of vehicles. Apart from cars and buses, a lot of Rickshaws are moving slowly in the road. Some passers-by are anxiously looking left and right to cross the road. There are some banks and departmental stores beside the highway. A lot of …

What Color Is My Parachute?

Inspired by the 'Self Inventory' chapter of 'What Color Is Your Parachute?' by Richard N. Bolles, last night I started drawing my thoughts on paper. I wanted to identify my real passion. It turned out to be something else though. Something more important. It gave me a picture of how my life has changed over the last two decades. 

I explored my memory - as far as I could. I tried to think what I used to do when I was in primary school (Grade 1 to 5). Then what happened in high school (Grade 6 to 10), how things changed in college (Grade 11-12), during my Bachelors and Masters, and what impact did 'moving to Canada' have on me. Then the obvious ones - how my life has changed with marriage and parenthood.

Though I was not surprised to look at the outcome, I must admit - I was not very conscious about all the changes that happened over time. Over the last 10 years or so, the changes have been dramatic. I have achieved some important characteristics, but probably a…
