Kua Kua!!

Kuakata is the only place in Bangladesh where you can see perfect view of sunrise and sunset. To know more about Kuakata you can Google it. Here's the Wikipedia link for Kuakata... You can have a quick look if you want.

Sabbir had been telling me about Kuakata trip for one month. We were not sure of going there. Our friend Arif came from South Korea on his semester break for one month. All he wants to do in his vacation is traveling. Once he heard about Kuakata tour he happily agreed to go.  That's when me and Sabbir ended our confusion. We also convinced our friend Emon to join us. We were friends from college, Chittagong College.... That was a good time! I still cherish my college life... Well, I will write about my college life someday later. Today I'm going to share my experiences of Kuakata trip... And I guess it's better if I let the photos talk... :)

The River Padma at night. We were on a ferry then. Our journey just had begun.
 Taken from another ferry next morning on the river Andarmanik. We were almost at Kuakata by then. The sun had just risen. And see the smile at Eshaque Bhai's face... No matter what's going on, he is always happy!
 A bunch of travelers... waiting for the ferry to move
 Jitu, Emon and Sabbir... drinking fresh young green coconut water at Kuakata beach...
 Look at the pose of this baby... We don't even know him... When Jitu saw her in the beach with her parents, she ran towards them and asked them if she could take a picture with their baby... The funny thing was that the baby started crying right after the shot... A baby always knows when to pose!
 The thing I enjoyed most in Kuakata is bike-journey. There's no other transport available in Kuakata. I have also ridden bike for the first time in my life. It was good.... Makes me want to buy one :)
 Red Scorpion... There are many of them in Lembur Chor, a nice spot at Kuakata. That's also the initial point of the world's biggest mangrove forest: The Sundarbans
 All the buddies together at Lembur Chor. From left: Me, Rashed, Emon, Arif, Sabbir
 The Sunset Scene at Kuakata. Although it wasn't that clear as we thought as it was very foggy that day.
 Bar-B-Que at Beach!
 "Kua" is the Bengali word for "Well"... And this is the well after which the place was named. And yah, those are our heads!
 A break in bike-journey... Didn't take us too long to pose.
 Tea break at Kawa's Chor... another beautiful place of Kuakata... This place is very similar to Jamtoli beach of Sundarban
 Fisherman... just arrived at shore...
Tragic death of a bird. Couldn't find its type but it was definitely a beautiful one
 At Kawa's Chor. From left: Sabbir, Arif, Me, Eshaque Bhai, Rupok Bhai, Emon, Rashed
Just before leaving Kuakata... Do we look tired? Well, that's why they call us "Luthaz". Let the term be a secret...

Though I'm late I don't want to be someone who don't say: Happy New Year everyone! :) Wish you guys a great year ahead!

[Except one or two where he is in the frame, all these photos are taken by Sabbir. You can check out his Flickr Gallery. He is pretty good at this.]

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…
