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.

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.

secrets to happy and healthy life – who is the blame?

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.
