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.
Had an amazing event at biggest ever Digital World 2015. Whole team did amazing work. Here is my presentation video on “Success Story Inside Our Bangladeshi WordPress Ecosystem and You Could Be Next“.
WordPress came long way in last 10 years, so as it’s community. Our Bangladeshi community is not lagging behind. We have success story of our own. We have several remarkable person and companies doing superb in the whole WordPress ecosystem. Today I would like to put some lights on those brave souls, and lets get encouragement from them, maybe the next success story will be from this room!
All those pictures you see from Sundarbans are FAKE. Some are Photoshopped, some are from Hollywood movies, like few are from Jurassic Park, some are from movie Avatar, and rest are just Oil Paintings. In fact there are no Sundarbans in Bangladesh, we hardly have few বাঁশ ঝাড়, but Biggest Mangrove Forest Sundarbans in Bangladesh? No way! There might be something in India, they are the big country, they should have everything!
What an wonderful video, presenting Bangladesh. I got 3:41 min of goose bumps, and a refreshing feelings which will surely sustain for a long time. After yesterday’s disappointing situation, it completely spellbounded my mind. Thanks to Amitabh Reza Chowdhury . Thanks a lot. You just brought us tears of joy for the country. Lets spread this video and show the world why they must visit Bangladesh and what we have is super super unique!
I have always seen over 3Mbps in my Teletalk(at least in my office and home), and that 3G. 3.5G has the capacity to deliver upto 21Mbps. But whats the point of making it 3.5 or 3.9 or 3.99G when they still provide that lower speed (people reporting they get only 1Mbps in Robi Sheirom 3.5G, in their WIC). And try to think what they will charge for 21Mbps in Bangladesh. Take a guess!
Today, 26th March is our Independence Day. Its a very very special day for us, to all Bangladeshi. We always celebrate this day with pride and respect for millions of people died during our liberation war in 1971. It’s always special. This year Google made it more special. Just visit Google home page.
While reading a news about “Google’s Stunning Street Views From the Top of the World” at Wired, I just find out Bangladeshi Flag in “Aconcagua Summit, Mendoza, Argentina”. It was very surprising but feels great. You could check directly from Google Maps here – https://asif.im/gMapsMt . BTW the summit of mighty Aconcagua is the tallest mountain in the Western and Southern Hemispheres and the tallest point outside of the Himalayas. So was it Wasfia Nazreen? and its part of Bangladesh on seven summits?

I was suddenly looking at Ishurdi.com, one of my dream site and supposed to be on going project. But we holded its development for better design and feature, today I seen this site has visitor and has 2 Google rank for Keyword “Ishurdi”, I did SEO for it at the beginning. Today site looks so pale to me, so i decided to add some photo temporary basis. We ware previously gathering photos for this site. Few people from Ishurdi, mainly Journalist helping us, Press Club is another helping hand, but those photos i have in Office, i am in home now, so was looking online for free usable image. Then find out some great Bangladeshi Traveler and Photographer, They do PhotoBlog too. I mailed them for permission of using their image . They are great people. They are working by their own and showing Bangladesh t the World. Heads Up for Theme.
