72 Hours in Dhaka: An Americans Take From Dhaka, Without Any Pre-Expectation


Screenshot 2015-05-06 01.21.27
A very interesting and super honest article by Jim Hamill at The Huffington Post about our city Dhaka, I read few days ago, but did not got time to share. If you are living in Dhaka or even never been to Dhaka all MUST READ it. I have always said Bangladesh is a very different place, (in good way), from anywhere in this planet. The writer did not have any idea, and no expectation from Dhaka. He wanted to see Dhaka, like raw, like in normal eyes. His 72 hours exploration is just amazing. Its funny how he described Rickshaw, Morog Polau, compares Sadar Ghat with Venice’s Grand Canal (vaguely), talks about California Fried Chicken (CFC). So funny 😀

He was also very astonished not to see a single tourist in Dhaka City (note he is talking about tourist, not foreigner) in his 72hr in Dhaka. We need work on that, we need to create ecosystem to make ourself explorable to outsider. We need good stories, PR worldwide to let people know about our wealth.

Happiness Is An Attitude

Let me brighten your day. You must watch this short but super super motivational talk of a teenager “Aisha Chaudhary“.

Happiness is an attitude, happiness is doing what you truely love, and I feel that happiness can only come from acceptance. I accept who I am, I accept where I am at, and I accept the challenges that I am battling with today. And I am even more determined to make the most of this wonderful gift of life that god has given me.

As Anderson once said “Enjoy life, theme is plenty of time to be dead.

Sadly: Aisha Chaudhary sadly passed away on the morning of January 24th, 2015 after battling an immune deficiency disorder and Pulmonary Fibrosis throughout her life.

Man of Steel Will not be as dark as Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy

I was reading a nice interview of Hans Zimmer composer of “Man of Steel“, the soon to be released Superman movie. Due to the heavy involvement of Christopher Nolan, the director of The Dark Knight Trilogy I had a feeling he will try to make this Superman reboot in a new Dark way. And first trailer also gave us that hint. Now Zimmer giving us new hope.

WordPress Wins “Open Source CMS Awards 2009”

Here it comes again. WordPress wins Overall Best Open Source CMS Award in the 2009 Open Source CMS Awards. Its not a best blogging platform award, its awarded for best CMS award. Now those people who always question me why me and my company dedicately work on WordPress should get answer.

Yesterday Matt Announced at this post WordPress Wins CMS Award.

He expressed his joy saying “Yatta!” like Hiro Nakamura from Ppular TV Show “Heroes”.

Quot from Matt’s post

In addition to winning in the Overall Best Open Source CMS category, WordPress was named first runner-up in the Best Open Source PHP CMS category. This is significant because we weren’t even in the top 5 last year, and now we’re #2, ahead of Joomla! As is stated on the Award site, “WordPress made its way into the top five for the first time. The fact that it was outranked by Drupal by a very slight margin indicates how popular it has become with users as well as developers over the past year.”
