We also spoke about investment, present Bangladeshi scenario, what I think, and how an ideal exit could be designed.

I used to sleep exactly 5.5hrs every day, now for a while, I am sleeping about 6hrs, where my target is to reach 6.5hrs. Adequate sleep is very important.

Last December I was invited by GrameenPhoneWhiteboard to present a keynote at the FundStarter Event about my Investment Experience in Bangladeshi Tech Startups. It was a closed-door event, and they allowed me to share my experience freely.

Cricket is the only game that I care, that I'm passionate about. Still this is just a game, and you should never take it too seriously. But we, as a nation, as a generation, do take it too seriously, which is very very wrong. I have publicly wrote about in past writing again. It's game and there will be always win or loose situation.
