Prince charming of dream
Lives through ages in the damsel’s heart
She may long and scream
She may wonder about his splendid art
Days and nights may pass
She may not meet her prince charming
But her love for him always lasts
His thoughts bring precious thing
Princess may meet the man in reality
She may not know her icon of love
She may always look for the divine beauty
Of her imaginary manly dove
Hero of heart may always remain missing
Princess will still crave for prince charming
When internet goes and miss my online friends
I feel very bad and wait to see how it ends
Sometimes the connection comes very soon
Then I think it this is a great boon
But,sometimes the internet does not come for hours
Then I curse for everything and look for others
Today I lost the internet connection
I got angry and restless for genuine reason
Waiting for sometime cursing the service provider
I went to the veranda to take some fresh air
Looked down my flat to the plot cleared recently
For building a large apartment complex matching the city
Various plants and grasses grew on the vacant land
A piece of oasis came from nowhere by some magic wand
In the middle of the lovely forest there was a little pond
Flowers of water lily bloomed there to create friendly bond
More scenes awaited me in the mundane garden
Many butterflies were flying in the flowery den
Suddenly a mongoose came into my sight
It was joined by several others from left and right
They were playing special game that charmed my eyes
I thought a snake might be around to give me surprise
At this point three jolly kids rushed to the plot
The furry mammals ran away into a hidden slot
I became happy by the events and started to ponder
Nature is the treasure of beauty and infinite wonder
Life is a blessing
Its beauty grows forever
Love to see winners
Mosaic is a form of art
It can easily charm your heart
You can see mosaic on your floor
Broken stone and glass makes its core
It can easily charm your heart
You can see mosaic on your floor
Broken stone and glass makes its core
Mosaic embrace buildings like flowers
You can look at their beauty for hours
Some leaves may give you pleasant surprise
With artistic mosaic on them like golden prize
But I like to tell the truth for knowledge of all
Those leaves are diseased and destined to fall
The other day I walked to a lofty roof for fun
Pleasant air played with me as children run
I looked at the sky and saw mosaic there
Fluffy cloud and blue of sky made them with care
Suddenly my eyes turned towards the land
Mosaics of flowers and greens made lovely stand
I thought it a map of gifted state
Where people lived happy and wished great
Memories of past events came as mosaic
It was like a movie mixed with truth and fake
The beauty of mosaic touched everything
The treasure of nature made me sing
(Inspired by the beauty of mosaic)
The winter in Bangladesh was generally considered as pleasant.Usually lifestyle change in this season and many activities like,visiting countryside with family and friends, picnic,travels,sightseeing,festivals,fairs,ceremonies take place in this season.Many exotic and indigenous vegetables and fruits give the markets a colorful look and consumers make delicious food items.One special activity in the winter of Bangladesh is making of various types of country cakes(locally called pitha) with rice,coconut,molasses made from the sap of date palm,spices and many other ingredients.People generally relish these traditional food items when the invasion of imported foreign and locally machine made packaged food items flood the market.
Foreign tourists also enjoy the pleasant winter weather of Bangladesh as it is almost similar to the summer of the west.This is why many foreigners from the whole world and the migrant Bangladeshi people visit Bangladesh during winter.Cool temperature without any trouble of mud making rain give delightful experience.
But,this winter that has started in December,2012 and rolled to January,2013 is different.Several cold waves have crippled the life of common people.They are struggling frantically to protect themselves from the bite of the shivering cold.Most people lack sufficient warm clothing and this they are helpless in the foggy and wintry weather.Many children and old people have fallen victims of biting cold weather.News media reported 22 cases of death of humans up to 10 January.2013 .
The temperature in this winter has been recorded as the lowest in 58 years.Though the variation of temperature in different areas of the country may present a wrong picture about the severity of cold wave in particular places.The lowest temperature recorded in Dinajpur on 9 January,2013 was 3.2 degree Celsius while the highest was recorded in Cox’s Bazaar which was 11.8 degree Celsius.
Historically,the lowest temperature was recorded in Bangladesh in Srimangal, Moulvibazaar.The temperature was 2.8 degree Celsius and the day was 4 February,1968.The cold temperature is mostly influenced by various phenomena of weather.It has been observed that the adverse effects are many.Many kinds of diseases affect people in cold weather,domestic animals suffer badly in such weather.Crops like paddy and potato production are badly affected by cold weather.The seedlings of winter paddy,called Boro rice get stunted by severe cold while potato may be damaged by fungal diseases like early and late blight.Mustard is another major crop of Bangladesh of winter which adds beauty to the nature by its vast expanses of yellow flowers.This crop may be devastated by the attack of an insect pest called Aphid in the foggy weather.
The winter is one of six vital seasons of Bangladesh.It would be a blessing unless the the people is devastated by cold waves.
This year the cold waves are biting hard causing great sufferings to peoples.Should we view the current winter as any indication
of climate change?I welcome the opinion of experts in this discipline.
I will continue to update this article on the basis of real situation and opinion of experts.
Life in university is always a memorable event.It is not unlikely that an alumnus feel nostalgic when some thought on the university life comes across his or her memory.I encountered a passionate experience this morning when I went for a visit to the campus for some business.This campus is very special for my life and career.I got admitted in 1972 and left the campus in 1977 after graduation. Though the name of educational establishment was Bangladesh Agricultural Institute when I got admitted,this was transformed into a university later as the Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University.
The campus was decorated by the flowers of mango trees.The lovely inflorescences of mango covered most of the canopies of the mango orchard and plants scattered across the campus.The advent of spring is declared by the emergence of mango flowers.The Nobel Laureate poet,Rabindranath Tagore composed the famous poem,’Amar Shonar Bangla….(My golden Bengal)’ indicating that mango flowers bloom in the spring. The other plants that flower to welcome the spring are bauhinia,coral,shimul,polash,krishnochura and shaddock.All these plants were in the campus with their wonderful blooms.The fragrance emitted by these flowers had made the campus a paradise on the earth.Bees and butterflies were flying on the flowers to collect nectar assisting in pollination.There were birds to collect food from the flowers and other sources.
I walked to the horticultural garden.The protected area accomodated many flowers and vegetables.A large
rose garden was there with many varieties.The roses were pink,red,yellow,white,green and mixed.Some of them were very large while some were miniature types.Some had fragrance while others were without any smell.
The vegetables were tomato,cabbage,spinach,onion and many others.Most of the horticultral crops were grown for experiments to understand the production,profit and promotional potential.I met some teachers and researchers in the garden.
I talked with a teacher-researcher who developed some short duration mustard varieties to fit beteween two rice crops which is staple food of our people.He was a successful innovator and continues his work on mustard genetics and breeding program.I visited his experimental fields which reached the harvesting stage.There were some fields of pulses around the fabulous tower erected for holding permanent agricultural fairs.
There were some experiments on rice and wheat too.Various equipments were being used in the experimental fields by trained personnel.All looked very busy to make use of the cool morning weather.
Then,I went to the large cannon ball trees to see their amazing flowers.All the trees carried flowers on their trunks.The cannon ball tree is said to be a rare plant.It carries wonderful flowers that look like the hood of cobra.It is also said that the fruit which resembles cannon ball are poisonous.However poisonous the fruit or flower of this plant may be,I always felt a crazy attraction for this plant,particularly,its amazing flowers.
After the visit of the campus resources,I met a number of persons to accomplish my business.I was welcomed by them.Shared about my passion with them.It was a wonderful morning of spring in my beloved educational centre.
When coming back I looked to the avenue trees of mast tree and road side jackfruit trees.The jackfruit tree were bearing flowers on the trunks and main branches.The beauty of the campus was enhanced by the trees in the campus.
Bird,Bee and Butterfly are common animals that may be seen around the human habitat.
We usually do not consider how these animals contribute meaning to our lives.
If we think about their contributions we will be surprised to calculate the value in
The most important contributions of bird,bee and butterfly are their relentless role in maintaining the
environment healthy and beautiful for the humans and themselves.
They provide aesthetic beauty to our nature by their beauteous presence.The chirping of birds and the hums of bees are
amusing for us all.
