born twenty years ago in Bangladesh, but
currently reside in Toronto,
have loved reading all my life. My uncle started reading Shayeed Mostuba's
"Rosogolla" to me when I was five years old. I must have had an abnormal
attention span, because I really liked them. I think I was in grade five when my dad read
Rabindra nath's "Hoiyemonti" to me. I loved it, and have read it at least four
times since then. I remember crying and crying after Hoiyemont's mother-in-law abused her
badly, but my dad wouldn't tell me that she was with her husband or not. I broke my
scared rule never to make any attempt to find out what was going to happen in a book,
then, and asked a friend at school what happened. I soon started on Masud rana's
series stories, which I also adored, and still do. I read my first novel in grade 8.
I really liked it, but liked other books about equally. Then someone told me to read
Sheva's series and I was hooked. That series continues to be my favourite, and I really
enjoy all of Sheva's other books, especially all mysterious books.
I still spend tonnes of time
reading, and some of my favourite authors are Rabindra Nath Tagor, Kazi Nuzrul Islam, Jibanando Das, Homayan
Azad, Shakut Osman, Homayan Ahmed, Ars Ali matabbar and shirsondo Mukhupathdai. My
favourite poet are Kobi Shamsur Rahman, Sufia Kamal, Mohadev Shah and Ruthdro Muhammad
My Englsih favourite
writer are Steinbeck, John Ball. My favourite personality is Bangabondhu Sheikh Mojibur Rahman.
At the age of thirteen, I
realised that I enjoyed writing. All though in the school I had hated the 'enforced
creativity' where teachers expected you to sit down and write. But at the end of grade
seven, I wrote a story. I had enjoyed writing it, I showed my private tutor and my teacher
showed it to my another relatives, who thought it must have been written by someone else.
From then on, I've considered myself a writer. In 1993,I submited my writing in Bishsho
Shahitto Kandro (International Literature Institute, Dhaka, Bangladesh) and I got a
position in top ten in a writing contest. A year later, I won two honourable mentions in
the Short Story contest. I also attended book reading competitiions at Bishsho
Shahitto Kandro (Dhaka, Bangladesh)
My high school life was so
beautiful. I had some intellectual friends and there were so aware with literately,
politically, socially and intellectually. I missed them very much. After finising my
SSC Exam, I decided to go Dhaka to study. When i heard that i secured first division
with *marks. I decided to go Dhaka college or Notre Dame college. And i got chance both
college to study. My family decided to send me Dhaka College and I also secured
first division in HSC but with lower marks than SSC. My family thought that i didn't
get good marks because I spent a lot of time in the New Market with my friends ( New
market located beside Dhaka College) After finising my secondary school certificate course
I moved to Canada. And I lost some years here because I went to High School again and it
took me two years to finish and dropped one years. I have admitted at
Centennial College in Computer System Technology. Before I was interested in fiction but
now i am interested in non-fiction and technical and computer relatied books.
Computer programming is
something else that I'm interested in. A few years ago, I started learning PASCAL, then
decided to learn HTML. Right now I'm working on VISUAL BASIC at home.
I just 'rose out' of High
school on January 99 to pursue independent study because I found I was bored with my
classes, and had a lot more things that I want to do that have nothing to do with high
school. although I am going back to school again to build my future in engineering field.
This is my second semester in Computer System Technolgy.
So that's about it. Hope I
didn't bore you to death. I had fun writing this, anyway, so that's what counts.
