AC Is the Secret of My Energy!

Laugh at me or not, having an air condition in a particularly warm weather like in Bangladesh does increase your productivity significantly. In Dhaka, where the temperature is high and on top of that is even higher humidity, it’s really difficult to stay focused on work. That’s why so many office spaces have air conditioning to keep the employees from sweating to death. Continue reading “AC Is the Secret of My Energy!”

7 Things I Learned From My First Visit to India

This is the second part of the three-part series on my first visit to India to attend WordCamp Pune representing Jetpack. In the previous post in this series, I’ve gone over the traveling part of going to India from Bangladesh with a short layover in Sri Lanka. You can read it here if you’re interested in having a proof of how much I love traveling through airports. :)

In today’s post, I’ll be talking about some of the things that stood out to me during my short stay in India. India is a neighbor to Bangladesh and a lot of things are pretty similar. One might say, you don’t experience that much of a difference in terms of scenery and views if you’re coming from Bangladesh.

But it’s still another country and some experiences were to be had. I’ve had them. I’ve listed some 7 things that stood out to me and I’m going to briefly touch on them in this post.

The Airport Diaries: Short Trip to India

Did I ever tell you that I’m secretly an airport addict? I don’t even know if that’s a thing. But I actually like fooling around airports. An airport is a place where you can see a lot of people of different cultures. It’s an interesting place especially if you yourself are traveling.

The first time I flew, at least after my childhood, was around October 2013. I’ve been to a quite a few airports and that’s when I discovered that I liked airports a lot. It’s a bit difficult to explain. There are things in life that you just like and you can’t always find an explanation that will make sense to other people.

So here it goes! Continue reading “Solved: The Reason Why I’ll Never Have Someone”

Setting Goals for the Blog Going Forward

One of the things that I’ve noticed over the past few years of my blogging life is that it’s extremely difficult — more than you can imagine when starting out — to actually keep blogging when you don’t have any goals. I guess it’s a no-brainer, as with most other things in life. You have to set a goal first to actually achieve it.

I’ve been able to set goals for a few other blogs and I’ve had success with it. Oddly enough, this blog — the oldest of all of them — has always been kind of neglected. Perhaps that’s because I call it a personal blog? Should personal blogs have a goal? What kind of goal could I set for what’s merely a digital diary?

I’ve signed up for’s Blogging University course called Blogging 201. Today marks the first day of the course and it asks to set three goals for the blog. The prompt made me think, why did I start blogging in the first place? Continue reading “Setting Goals for the Blog Going Forward”

Fun-filled Evening in Pune

Before I get too deep into this post, let me first remind you the fact that everyone has very different definition of fun. For me, that’s being able to spend a good time with some people whom I can connect to. 9 out of 10 times those people tend to be geeks. So I can talk about things that I know or am curious to know about. Besides, most geeks tend to be introverts as well. As a result, just like two minuses make a plus, we connect faster.

I’m in Pune, India this week to attend WordCamp Pune that’s happening this Sunday. It’s the first time this is taking place in Pune and the organizers are already getting a huge response from the local people. It’s gotten to a point where the organizers might have to turn down people because of lack of space at the venue. I’m pretty excited to attend the first WordCamp in my life.
