While passing Anondo cinema hall at Farmgate, the large backdrop of the newest Bangla movie caught my attention. One of the girls on the backdrop looked familiar. I went in for a closer inspection and recognised her. She was none other than Jenny, my friend Farhan’s fiance.
I called up my friend who was in a state of shock. We decided to watch the 6 o’clock show. The movie itself was totally crap, but not as vulgar as we thought it be. It’s just that there was an attempt-to-rape scene on Jenny, a moderately-erotic song where she wore shorts and tight blouse, and some touch-hug-kiss-fondle scenes. Can’t call it too obscene since topless and make out scenes are becoming norm in the latest Bangla movies.
Just to mention, it’s the second time I’ve been to a Cinema hall in Dhaka. The first time was in 1998 when I watched Titanic in Modhumita.

মেয়ে তুমিতো আমার নও চেনা
পলক তবু কেন আর পরেনা
জানিনা আজ আমার কি হলো
যেওনা যেওনা কিছুতো বলো…
যদি কথা না হয়
যদি দেখা না হয়
হারিয়ে যাও এক ঝলকে
মেয়ে কথা না কও
মেয়ে ফিরে না চাও
সঙ্গী করে নাও আমাকে…

I finally finished working on my first “complete” Bengali site. Check it out and let me know what you guys think about it. I’m looking for criticisms, so please be honest and let me know the truth.
The site has been tested to work under Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Fedora, Mandriva, OpenSUSE, and Windows, with Firefox, Konqueror, and IE.

One Bangali => A Poet
Two Bangalis => A (hindi) film society
Three Bangalis => A political party
Four Bangalis => Two political parties
Anyone disagrees with me? Raise your hand! ;)
