Get chance to stay at home

Once upon a time, I use to sleep a lot. A lot means both day and night. Then after becoming a mom that thing changed totally. Now in Canada I have 2 jobs, part time student and also a mom. I could only sleep 4/5 hours in 24 hours. Life became crazy. But things changed after a while, first my work places reduced my working hour, which means reduced money. I got some time at home and I was happy that at least I can take care of my family more. It was really needed. Then I became sick. For couple of days and now I am staying at home. Mostly lying on my bed, it's really rear now a day. Trying to give myself rest as much as possible. If I can't get recovered by 3 days, I have to make an appointment with a doctor, by tomorrow. Let's see what's next. Just trying to enjoy my sick holidays as much as possible on bed.

How you will be judged at Developed country

Somehow this got in my mind that, in 1st world, people respects peoples' work skill, people get promoted and valued by their skill, dedication and honesty. But, you know, this is not 100% correct. If you start working in developed countries, you will see here also people helps to those people whose origin is from their origin country, who knows how to butter the upper level and have big mouth to cover all answer. Some management even don't have skill to understand actually who is the one for whom their company is doing good in the market. More over, they give promotion unskilled person to the management level , because that person actually not useful on the field, so keep them at management that they don't have to work at root level.

Where blogging lives

Blogging became popular, just before Facebook come into our world. People use to read, write and share their thoughts in blog. And then people started getting involving with Facebook, they stopped blogging. Instead of blogging, they are now posting posts in Facebook wall. I am like that too. More people are checking our posts than blog. Now a day, blogging is only continuing with very few people, who come online only to read or search any topic to research or just for curiosity.

কুয়াশায় সূর্যাস্ত (Sunset in fog)

[English version has given below]

হিমছড়িতে ছাতিওয়ালা চেয়ার ভাড়া করে বসেছিলাম সূর্যাস্ত দেখব বলে। এর মাঝে ৩ যুবক (আমাদের সফর সংগী) পানিতে দাপাদাপি শুরু করে দিয়েছিল। আর বাকি ৩ কন্যা ফটোসেশনে ব্যস্ত হয়ে পড়ল। সূর্য ডুবছে, টকটকে কমলা সূর্যের ছবি তুলছি এক সেকেন্ড পরপর। এক পর্যায়ে সূর্যটা সাগরের কাছে কুয়াশায় ডুবে গেল। ক্যামেড়া ধরে দেখলাম, ক্যামেড়ার পর্দায় তখনও সূর্য দেখা যাচ্ছে। হয়তো আমার চোখে সমস্যা আছে, তাই খালি চোখে ভাল ভাবে সূর্য দেখতে পাচ্ছিলাম না। তাই সই। তারপর সূর্যটা আসতে আসতে মিলিয়ে গেল ঘন কুয়াশায়। যেন কুয়াশায় ডুব দিল। সাগরে না হোক, কুয়াশায় সুর্যাস্ত দেখলাম। ভালই লাগল।

পুরোপুরি সাগরের স্বচ্ছ নীল পানিতে আমি সূর্যাস্ত দেখেছি লোহিত সাগরে, সৌদি আরবের উমলেজের বীচে।

প্রকৃতির সব কিছুরই আলাদা সৌন্দর্য আছে, সূর্যাস্ত সাগরে হোক, কুয়াশায় হোক আর শহরে বিল্ডিংয়ে হোক। সবকিছুতেই সুন্দর লাগে। প্রতিটার সৌন্দর্য আলাদা রকম। হয়ত কোনদিন কুয়াকাটা গিয়ে সুর্যদয়ও দেখার সুযোগ হবে সাগরে।

I was sitting under big umbrella, I had to rent the chair, to see the sunset in the sea (Bay of Bengal) at Himchhory, Cox's bazzar. By this time 3 men of our tour started jumping in the sea water and rest 3 girls started photo session. I saw the sun is going down in the sea. It was orange colored sun. I was taking pictures after each seconds. At one point I saw the sun drawn in the fog. I take the camera and found the sun is still there. May be my eye power isn't strong enough to see it. Anyway I couldn't see the sunset in the sea but in fog. That was other kind of beauty.

In my life I have seen the sun set in clear blue water at Red sea, Saudi Arabia. It was in Umleg beach.

What I felt is in Nature, everything has its own beauty. The sun can be set in the sea, fog or buildings, you will find its beauty in different way, because of different places. May be someday I will manage to go to Kuwakata to see the sunrise in the sea.

Where am I good at?

I have heard, in my age, people should follow their heart or do those work in which they are good at. I thought about it a lot. Where am I good at? No matter in which area I work, I am good at it (May be not great). I like almost all kind of work. Now where should I go, in which work or study should I really focus at? I wish I know the answer. Now what I am thinking is I will go which area looks better in social life or where I can earn more. I am so occupied with my current job and household work or responsibility that I can't focus on my future work. Still trying to steal sometimes for myself. Someday, I will be succeeded to do something, which I really want to do...

সঠিক রক্ষনাবেক্ষন (Maintaining)

[English version has given below]

সঠিক রক্ষনাবেক্ষন সব কিছুতেই দরকার। আপনি দেখবেন কোথায় একটু ছিড়ে গেলে, বা ভেংগে গেলে সাথে সাথে যদি আপনি মেরামত করেন, তাহলে সেটা বহুদিন ঠিক থাকে। না হলে খুব তাড়াতাড়ি পুরো জিনিসটাই নষ্ট হয়ে যায়। তখন মেরামত করাও কষ্টকর, আর সব সময় মেরামত করলেও ঠিক হয় না। 

এমন বাড়ি, যেখানে নিয়মিত রং করা হয়, মেরামত করা হয়, তাহলে দেখতে অনেক সুন্দর লাগে, বাড়িটাও ভাল থাকে। ঠিক মতোন যত্ন না নিলে শ্যাওলা পড়ে, নানা জায়গায় ভেংগে পড়ে। ভিতরটা যতই সুন্দর করে রাখা হোক না কেন। আসলে ভালো লাগে না।

আমি শুনেছি, থাইল্যান্ড, মালয়েশিয়া দেখতে অনেক সুন্দর। অথচ ওরা আলাদা কিছু করেনি আমাদের দেশে তুলনায়। ওখানে দেখবেন, আমাদের দেশের মতোই গাড়ি, রাস্তা, পার্ক। অথচ শুধু সঠিক রক্ষনাবেক্ষনের জন্য কত সুন্দর লাগে।

We know, proper maintenance needed for everything. You will notice, when anything teared up or broken; if you fix it immediately it will be OK for long time. Otherwise it will be wasted soon. Then you can't fix it or even if you can, it will be difficult to fix.

For example, if you see any house, which is colored regularly, fixed always in time, then it looks very beautiful as well as it stays well. But if you don't take good care of it, then it will be broken in several places.  No matter how good it looks inside.

I have heard Malaysia or Thailand are beautiful country. But you might notice, they didn't do much extra afford to make it well. You will see their home, cars look exactly like ours (Bangladesh). But only for good maintenance they looks gorgeous.

Unfinished tasks

For me, my word is very important. If I said, I will do this job, I try my heart and soul to complete it as a best way as possible. And generally, I always succeed to complete them. Recently I faced unexpected block in my life to complete all the tasks which I said I will complete. Like, suddenly fall in sick, got new jobs, changing working hours etc. I am trying hard but still couldn't complete those tasks, like volunteer jobs, extra assignments etc. I am really feeling ashamed about those mentioned tasks. I just wish that if I could complete all the work, especially where I have given word.

পাশাপাশি থেকে (Staying with me)

[English version has been given below the main post]

কিছু মানুষ আছেন, যারা পাশে থাকলে আপনি খুব ভাল বোধ করেন, রবীন্দ্রনাথের ভাষায় কেমন একটা স্বাস্থ্যকর আবহাওয়া চারপাশে থাকে। শুধু ভাল লাগা নয়, ভিন্ন রকম প্রতিক্রিয়াও আপনি বোধ করবেন। ভাললাগার কেউ কাছে থাকলে আপনি হয়তো ভাল কাজ করতে পারেন, আবার কেউ কাছে থাকলে হয়তো আপনার কাজকর্ম সব বন্ধ হয়ে যায়। ভালো বোধ করারও কত রকম ভেদ। এটা আপনার মা-বাবা, ভাই-বোন, আত্নীয়, বন্ধু, সহকর্মী, প্রতিবেশি, অচেনা কেউ সবার ক্ষেত্রেই সম্ভব। 

আর এই মনোভাবও বদলে যেতে পারে সময়ে...। তখন হয়তো সেই ব্যাক্তি থেকে দূরে থেকেই আপনি ভালো বোধ করবেন।

কখনও এমনও হয় কারো ক্ষেত্রে যে, সে আছে নাকি চলে গেছে, সেটা আপনি কখনও ভেবে দেখেন নি। অথচ, চলে যাবার পর মনে হবে সব শুন্য হয়ে গেছে। অথচ, সে হয়তো আপনার কথা ভেবেও দেখছে না।

এ কারনেই হয়তো আমরা সব সময় আপনজনের সাথে থাকতে ভালো বাসি।

কিন্তু এমন কেন হবে। বাস্তবে কে আপনার পাশে থাকল বা গেল, তাতে আপনার কিছুই যায় আসে না, যদি না কোন কাজ থাকে আপনার সাথে। তারপরও প্রতিটা মানুষই হয়তো নিজের কিছু প্রভাব ফেলে তার চারপাশে। তাই হয়তো কারো উপস্থিতি আপনাকে এক মুহুর্ত শান্তি দেয় না। আর কাউকে আপনি সব সময়ই সাথে রাখতে চান।

[০৪ ঠা মার্চ, ২০০৮]

There are few special people, when they stay around you, you will feel really well. Like Rabindranath Tagore, we can say, "They make you feel like a healthy environment around you". Not only good feeling, there are more complex feeling that you may feel. Sometimes when they are around, you may feel good to work, sometimes they just take all your senses that you can't work at all. I mean you may feel different way about this good feeling. It can be your father, mother, brother, sister, relative, friend, coworker, neighbor or unknown person.

This feeling may change also, then you might feel well when they keep distance with you.

Sometimes this strange feelings happens, about somebody you actually don't care. whether they are around you or not, you don't care. But when they leave, you will feel empty. While they might not feeling about you anything.

May be these are the reasons that we like to live with our loved ones.

But why will this feeling come to us? It actually doesn't matter whether any person stay around me or not, unless they have any work with me.

May be every people has some influence on the environment around them. That's why you may don't want to stay with some people for a moment and you might want some people to stay with you always.

Why cooking is so interesting to me?

I love my profession as a cook. I like to taste different cuisines from different continents. That's why when I was in school, I used to cook different kinds of food from a cook book, very weekend. My guinea pigs were my family members. They loved to be my guinea pigs, though sometimes I served them under cooked foods. May be this is the reason, that no body encourage me to take cooking as a profession. So, as I loved to taste food, I started liking cooking.

I landed in Canada at 2015 as a permanent resident with my family. One of friend suggested I should start my career over here, wherever I get a chance; later by taking certificates and volunteer jobs I should go for my dream job. So, at first, I was looking for any job. Luckily a Thai restaurant around my neighborhood was looking for kitchen staff. I went there and got a job as a cook. The owner was very generous with me and gave training with all kitchen staff. Now I am working in both and Indian and English food restaurant, and at McDonald's as a part time cook. So, in Canada I became a cook!

In future, I would like to be a restaurant manager. I am not planning to have my own restaurant, because after work, I want to give more time to my family too. To become a better cook, I have taken "Food Safety First" level 1 course. Now I am planning to take a level 2 course. I also plan to take a journeyman cooking certificate. I like my profession and I like to do well in it.

Today I am not talking about web networking, I am talking about human networking. Networking is very important in life. No doubt. But is it so much important for your company that you don't count anybody else rather than your network?

When you don't have enough people in your area, networking can be a very good tool to find the right people for your company. Things has changed a lot now. People are migrating from every where in this world. Number of skilled population are higher than any time. Now if you still stick with your networking then you might be losing people who were much more skilled and qualified for your company.

What do you think about those skilled persons who are not in your network? They might not be getting good job or opportunity to grow themselves and to help companies to grow, only because of good networking.

So, for education which is more important now? Good skill or good networking?
