Pop Music Rules!

This is just a warm wish from me to all of you especially to those of you working in SWM. This letter is not about any particular article. Everything is wonderful! However, I am a big fan of Western Music, and would like to extend my heartiest congratulations on the brilliant entertainment page. However, I sometimes find that you do not publish the current pop music compilation? My request is to publish more current pop music like Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Lopez, Nelly, Kelly Rowland, Justin Timberlake and so on. In the Ittefaq, they publish songs of these top pop celebrities. Since I am a regular reader of your magazine and newspaper, I would appreciate it if you did the same. Please understand that this is not criticism, but just a suggestion…Think about it.

Good Work

Your Articles "Nari-pokkho - 20 years of stuggle" and "Remembering a Childhood Friend" on the May 23 magazine were both extra-special. Thank you. Would it be possible to obtain the address of Zareen Ahmed to thank her personally? You get a delightful variety of serious articles, as well as those of human interest which struck me this past week. Thank you again.

HSC Examiners Biased?

AKB of Banani has written a prejudiced letter in the name of education. He wanted to say that examiners of the HSC exam are not careful about the questions that they prepare. This is absurd! HSC examiners do not look upon examinees as non-Muslims--Hindus, Christians, Buddhists, etc…
They look upon examinees as students who have are fully prepared for any question, regardless of the subject matter. Also he mentions that the examinees have a choice or an option as to whether or not they want to answer the questions. He should realise that it is not the HSC examiners that are ridiculous, but his own perspective.

"Dwelling in the Moment"

My very inner self was stirred with an unearthly feeling after reading the article of Neeman A. Sobhan, titled “Dwelling in the Moment.” It was unique. I read this article on my way to work on a sultry day. The piece led me to a different plane of ecstasy. It was like a soft, gentle breeze that blew over my hot, sweaty face. As an avid reader of romantic poetry, I couldn't help but recall the land of daffodils delineated by W. Wordsworth. Thanks to SWM and also to the writer for this exceptional column that took me into a dreamland even while I was in the din of city life.
