So many times in our life we try to change our close friends/families and almost 100% time we fail successfully. Did ever anyone can change other people forcefully? How can you handle a negative mate? Can you change the negative energy that surrounds him/her?
The simple answer is NO. You never can change others. The only person you can change is yourself. Yes, you can change the feelings about your mate, you can practice forgiveness. If you practice gratitude every day (that means to feel the feelings of gratitude for everything you have – good health, good spouse, friends, families, children, career……a beautiful sunny day or a chilly winter (think about the heat of Sahara)……for everything you have in your life), you will feel good about your negative friends.
Even a broken clock shows right time twice a day. Every person doesn’t matter how much negative energy s/he possesses, has some positive side also. Practicing gratitude will enable you to see those positive sides in every person.
Do you think this is very important? what is the joy of eating ice cream if you don’t hurry to eat the whole thing because otherwise, it will melt down? Will it be very enjoyable to sit for an hour in front of your ice cream and then eat? How many people in this world wait for hours to eat their ice cream after being served?
The only good side of this invention is for the takeaway food delivery companies like Uber eats/ Deliveroo/ Menulog etc who can deliver ice cream in solid form to the door of customers. Happy food delivery.

It is bizarre to think today that how difficult it was to start the tap water supply in Dhaka city in the 19th century. As we know that Dhaka’s nawabs were foot licker of British but they did some tremendous good job and one of those was setting up supply water authority, the birth of Dhaka WASA.

একটু চিন্তা করে দেখেন মুঘল সম্রাজ্যের মালিকরা যখন হাজার খানেক বৌ তথা রক্ষিতা রাখতো সে খবর আমরা খুব আনন্দের সাথে গ্রহণ করি, সম্রাটদের পৌরুষিকতার প্রশংসা করি. কিন্তু আমাদের দেশের কেও যদি একই কাজ করে, তাইলে তার জন্য ঘৃণা ছাড়া আর কিছু চিন্তা করতে পারি না. এটা কি আমাদের ভিতরের হিংসা থেকে আগত? আরেকটা কথা এখানে বলা প্রয়োজন. ১৮৬৪ সালের খবর, আমি ১০০% নিশ্চিত সে সময়ে লন্ডনে ঢাকার চেয়ে ১০০ গুন্ বেশি পতিতা ছিল, যত বড়ো শহর তত বেশি ব্যাবসা , তত বেশি পল্লী. এটাই ক্যাপিটালিসম.
My personal favorite is the last one. Many of my friend boats about what they have watched on Netflix last week. They become so excited if they can find a new heart pumping Tv series which they can’t wait to finish. I have seen friends leaving the social programs early so that they can finish the Tv series by 4 am in the morning and then go to bed.
30 years ago TVs were fat and people were thin, now people become fat and Tv becomes thin. A heart attack is the number one killer in almost all the western countries. Sedentary lifestyle is killing us before we actually die through bones and muscle decay. Nowadays people suffer severely in their last 10 years due to their earlier sedentary lifestyle. Tv is the one thing to blame.
