I should have written this article earlier, due to my busy life I couldn’t find out spare times to write it all! Actually I also forgot the date of my joining in Ahsanullah University of Science and Technology as a Lecturer. Last Wednesday Shorif Bhai, one of my colleagues, reminded me the anniversary. I was amused at that time by thinking that how fast time flows.
After graduating from IUT on September 2006, I joined in AUST on October 2006. Frankly speaking I didn’t have any desire for the teaching life. While I was student, I used to dream of various engineering jobs but not the teaching. Even “I can be a teacher” – i never thought this line in my life; but now I am a teacher… a teacher of a prestigious private engineering university of Bangladesh…who could’ve think of that?
I’m still confused whether I am enjoying my job! But I found my colleagues very helpful and approachable. I always used to think that teachers are always boring, they don’t have any fun in their life or at least what they call fun is not fun to us. My this type of idea was punctured when I got in touch with my colleagues. In our teacher’s common room (Rm#213) of EEE department , there is always an euphoric environment all through. Bobby bhai and Ferdous bhai is the center of any gossip. Sometimes Jahangir bhai also joined there. Shorif bhai is one of my closest colleagues though he is 2 years senior to me. He is very friendly and jolly by nature. Biplob Bhai, Minhaz Bhai, Mushfiq Bhai, Mizan Bhai – all are very much helpful in any condition. Monju bhai is a sweet guy who likes laugh and is popular for his pinching people. He is a constant supply of fun. By the way I am the junior most lecturer in our department still now. I’ve Kaiser Habib, not junior to me but my batch-mate. So we two are the most junior teachers in the whole university!
I almost forgot to mention Momo aapu and Sadia Aapu. We call them “Sokhi” which means something like “friends forever” in Bangla. They sit together, eat together, take a break together, gossip together, take labs together, even they had the record of being sick for almost a week together! Oh… there is one difference between them, they live in different places, one in Mohammadpur and another one in Uttora. By the way, I like Momo aapu, because she never says “no” when I ask her for a lunch after invigilating her class tests.
I’ve got some students who greeted me on EID day. I was very much surprised at that, because I could not remember that I greeted any of my teachers on Eid day. By the way, I do have some potential students, who are very mush eager to prove themselves.
Another year of my AUST life has begun. Don’t know what is in future, but to my horrible, I think, slowly I am gonna like this profession! If it happens then history of mankind will be never aware of a dazzling Engineer in Electrical domain (that means me 😀 ).
