MY INTEREST

 Traveling, hiking and making fun

 Traveling, hiking and making fun

I have a fascination for traveling. Whenever I get time I must go somewhere. I like to see new places, new civilization and new culture. When I was a high school student, I lived in the hostel where I enjoyed very free and uncontrolled life. That helped me travel to a distant place (from Chandpur to Comilla) for the first time. Then I did not stop. I have visited the following places at home and abroad:

 1 Full south-east region of bangladesh including Feni, Chittagong, Rangamati, Kaptai, Bandarban, Cox's Bazar, Teknaf and Sent Martin Island. 2 Full North-east of Bangladesh including Comilla, Sylhet, Srimongal, Jaflong, Madobkunda 3 Northen side including Tangail and Moymensing 4 Southern side including Patuakhali and Kuakata 5 North-west including Rajshahi, Bogra, Rongpur and Dinaspur 6 Hiking to climb up the highest peak of bangladesh 7 South-east Asian region including Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia 8 London, United Kingdom 9 Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Niagara Falls in Canada

I have a dream to travel whole over the world. I wish I could visit the Moon.

 Games and sports

I am very much fond of playing chess. If I can see a chess board in your hand I will definitely request you to play with me. My favorite chess player is Cashperv.

I do not like to play outdoor games. But I like to enjoy cricket on TV. My favorite cricket team is Bangladesh and Pakistan.

 Mathematical puzzles and brain storming Go top

I was never as good as my teachers expected me to be in mathematics. But I love numbers. I like to think with unsolved problems. For example the following problem attracted me.

 Suppose you are given a balance and you have to measure any weight 1 through 40 kg using any combination of only four weights. Can you tell what those four weights are?

This problem did not attract me only as it is a mathematical puzzle. Instead it attracted me because of its pattern of answer. Find the answer and find the pattern of the answer, I hope you will be interested, too.

Any problem that appears before me must devour my attention to it. I try to solve it. If I can, I do not leave here. Instead I love to generalize the problem. If you want to learn how, come here.

 Browsing the net and chatting

Internet is an amazing area of information storage. I can get information I want to see. Everyday I spend some of time to brows the net. My favorite site is www.bbc.com. It is very interesting as it covers every side of news, views and ideas. As long as I am in bbc.com I do not need to go different sites for sports through weather and science and news. It helped me to learn English, too.

I am fond of making new friends on the net. Though it is very difficult to make friends on the net, I am successful in several cases. I have some good friends on the net from different countries. I often chat with them, share my views, learn about them, their culture even without visiting their country.

 Songs, Movies and TV

I cannot sing songs. But I like to enjoy modern Bengali songs. I hate band songs as well as attending live band show as the crowded dancing is very irritating to me. On the contrary, I like to enjoy songs alone or at most with my wife. Also, songs are very enjoyable while I am on a journey to a country side.

Some of my favorite songs.

 1. Je tuku somoi tumi thako kachey, Money hoy ey dehey pran achey

I do not like Hindi and Bengali movies that many people of our country are fascinated with. I am very much fond of English movies. My most favorite movie is Hard Target. As far as I can remember I watched it about ten times and will not miss to watch it if I get opportunity again.

My some other favorite movies are:

1. No where to run
2. The world is not enough
3. Speed
4.
5. Cliffhanger

6.
Executive Decision
7. Die another day

8. Poison Ivy

My favorite actors and actresses are:

1.
Jean-Claude Van Damme
2.
Steven Seagal
3.
Sylvester Stallone
4.
Halle Berry
5. Jacky Chen
6. Jet Lee
7. Sharon Stone
8. Jennifer Lopez

When I start TV I usually watch movies or national geography channel otherwise my favorite BBC channel is my friend for ever.

 Computer programming and Algorithm

I used computer, played game on computer and typed using computer but never new what programming was until I started learning FORTRAN in my undergraduate level. I became very enthusiastic and my limitless curiosity irritated one of my senior brothers who at last gave me a problem just to make me understand that programming was more difficult than I was thinking. Being more eager I took the problem from him. Also he declared to give me a prize if I could solve the problem using FORTRAN.

The problem was really difficult (Now I know how simple it was!). I had to write a program which would display a result like the following:

1
22
333
4444
55555
..........
and so on until a given integer.

I was new in programming and I just started my first FORTRAN lesson. I had to think very hard to realize the logic but too many syntax error took two hours to solve the problem. That was my first step in programming.

After that I have passed a long way. You can find my achievements in my profession section. But my interest in computer programming algorithm was not known to me until I met Dr. M. Kaykobad who came to teach us algorithm while I was in Sonali Bank. He just discovered me and got me involved in brain storming. I became so much interested in algorithm that we jointly started working and our paper is published in a journal. You will find it in my research section.

 Study, language and culture

 Extra curricular activities

I got several prizes on the following section:

1. Recitation from Holy Quran
2. Extempore speech and debate
3. Acting
4. Essay writing

Also I worked as the chief editor of our college (Notre Dame College, Motijheel Dhaka) magazine 'Blue and Gold' in the 40th anniversary of the college.
