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.

Beautiful artwork on the body of strong round pillars
Front Wall..... full of wonderful arts on it

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.

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 …

When it first came to Bangladesh in 1999 each pill had cost ~Tk1500. But now it's available at Tk250-400. Initially it was available in two or three special locations of Gulshan and Baridhara. But now Yaba can be delivered to home if ordered over the phone!

It is believed that Yaba has entered Bangladesh from Myanmar and Thailand. The most shocking news is, a Yaba making factory is recently discovered in Gulshan by RAB!!
Most addicts are aged between 18-30 but there are many younger and older users. Women are a major part of the total number of addicts. Many artists in the media are also addicted to it badly. As it is costly, mostly rich people go for it. As a result it has become a posh(!) drug in the city!

The temporary effects of Yaba which the addicts try to enjoy are: It stimulates body, increases …

টং দোকান (Tong Dokan)

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..

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 …
