Malaysian Airport in Cox’s Bazar

Few days back, Syed Manzoorul Islam, Professor Department of English, University of Dhaka, came to Cox’s Bazar and rambled to marine drive for tête-à-tête.
During the journey, our man on wheel pointed to a place and charismatically said “it is Malaysian airport”. “People board for their Malaysian flight from here”, he added. I stopped chuckling but the professor and other commuters’ curiosity made us tell about the scenario of that vicinity. Our storyteller mesmerised us by picking his best shot about human trafficking. Maybe, sometimes veracity seems bogus when reality appears the opposite.
We came to know about the Dalali (intermediation) rate for trafficking a single person to the destination, and enjoyed few stories that could be captured in celluloid.

World cup Fever blows Bangladesh

blank

Football or soccer, as is it called in some parts of the world, is undoubtedly the greatest game mankind has ever invented. The FIFA World Cup is the most widely-viewed sporting event in the world. Bangladesh is one rare country where during the World Cup people actively identify with and support a country that they otherwise have no connection with; and their favorites?

Either ‘’Argentina’’ or ‘‘Brazil’’ and you will see flags of those countries hoisted by the supporters on their rooftops. The dominant sport in Bangladesh is cricket, but this World Cup has shown just how passionate the South Asian nation’s 16 million citizens are about football. Even though they are around 9,000 miles away from South America, the majority of Bangladeshi people support either Argentina or Brazil .
