Promo of Cox's Bazar for N7W.

Here in Netherlands we don’t have too many Bangladeshi TV channels. Moreover I am not a regular audience of Bangla TV channels when I was in Bangladesh. That’s why it took me weeks to learn about the video for promoting Cox’s Bazar as a new natural seven wonder.

As the official nominee supporter of Cox’s Bazar in New7Wonders, Banglalink promote this video for casting vote for Cox’s Bazar. With the background music and the natural beauty of Cox’s Bazar, the video is really marvellous. I don’t know who sang that song and who is the music director or who directed this video, but I admit that they did a wonderful job. After seeing the video, I told myself what a beautiful country we have and I didn’t watch it with that eye!

Enough talking, now enjoy the video; but don’t forget to vote Cox’s Bazar!

Internet Propaganda of a Candidate for the Mayor of Dhaka!

This post is not a Mayoral campaign of Chowdhury Irad Ahmed Siddiky for the Mayor Election of Dhaka 2008. This news is published here because I found it as an interesting news and nothing else.

It looks like Bangladesh is entering cyber world for election campaign! Just in Facebook I’ve seen a Bangladeshi named Chowdhury Irad Ahmed Siddiky is campaigning for the Mayor Election of Dhaka 2008. Well… it amazed me much. I’ve never seen any Bangladeshi candidate running propagnda in cyber world for any kind of election before. And I think we got the first one!

His name is Chowdhury Irad Ahmed Siddiky. He has a Facebook account. He has a regular blog. And he has a campaigning page in Facebook also! It seems that Bangladesh is entering in a new era of election campaigning. Whatever I could remember that once I had read the political blog of Sajib Wajed Joy (son of Sheikh Hasina the former PM of Bangladesh) but for some reason it is now not updating anymore. Apart of this I could not recall any personal site or blog of any of our political persons. In that sense Mr. Siddiky did a great job. Also it is not a bad idea to grab the young generations by wandering in the cyber space. To my concern, nobody had done it before. No doubt that he is a learned person but the question is how perfect is he for the Mayor of Dhaka? Well if you visit is Facebook Campaign page, you’ll find some 200 supporters, and whatever I know rest of the people of Dhaka have hardly heard his name!

I am not going to the argument about his winning chances, but… hey… it is indeed a interesting fact, isn’t it?
