To everyone's surprise, work permit for the 2nd batch has been refused. We perfectly fit in the intra-company transfer law, but only Allah knows how these high commission people work. Do they really have any concrete rationale? Do they really have any deterministic process? We are at a loss.

Second batch is at Canadian High Commission right now. We are anxiously waiting for the result. May Allah make everything positive today. Shakhawat and I will visit the SOFT EXPO 2005 today at Bangladesh-China Friendship Convention centre. Don't know what our mood will be like after hearing the result.

Brian Charles Lara is my second most favourite cricketer. He is a living legend. To me, he is the best batsman ever in the history of cricket. Today, he achieved yet another milestone. He is now the leading run-scorer in tests. I always relish watching his innings, it is more beautiful than any other thing that can be shown on TV. I feel very fortunate that I am born in a time when Lara is playing. I wish he plays four more years and break all the remaining records except the highest one-day innings held by Saeed Anwar.

Today, we will chat with our new manager Lars Olof Burchard for the first time. He will introduce himself to Dhaka office. Though, I am known to him, he doesn't know others. He is a nice guy. Hope our journey together will be a nice one.

I want to reschedule the date to the 4th of December though I am not sure what I shall achieve on that too. My preparation is awful and I know that deferring it one week won't bring much good for me, but I have to try. December will be a very busy month for me. Sharna and I want to visit Nepal in the second week. My friend Arif will come to Bangladesh, and his wedding date is fixed on the 25th. I have my marriage day on the same date too. Don't know what to do about it yet. Hope among all these events my GRE turns out to be a not bad one.
I was very tensed about the Eid when it was approaching. I was sick and I feared that I wouldn't come round before it comes. Thanks to Allah as I became OK just one day before Eid. The day seemed wonderful to me. Though I didn't meet any of my friends as most of them are abroad, I visited Sharna's friends' houses with her. We started the visits at the afternoon and returned home at 9 pm. On the next day, we went to Sirajgonj. The journey wasn't easy at all. At the bus terminal, we found it hard to get two tickets of a bus which will go to Sirajgonj or pass by it. After some frantic search, we got two tickets of a bus which would go to Naoga, and we have to pay the price for Naoga though we would travel half the distance. Once we were in Sirajgonj, it was all the fun. We had a nice time there. We visited Lisa apu's house at evening. The next day we went to a wedding ceremony far from Sirajgonj town. We availed a hired bus, the journey was a fun too. Some boys were singing and dancing in the bus all the way. The venue of the wedding, which was the bride's house, was a great place. There was many trees and a big pond at the vicinity. I roamed the area and liked being there. The food was very nice too. We missed the bou-vat yesterday as our bus to Dhaka was at 2 pm which coincided with the invitation. Oh, there is something more, Raad is becoming cuter day by day. We had a nice time with the adorable little kid. I hope that I shall post some new pics of him tomorrow.

I was having low fever for last few days. I couldn't go to office two days. I visited a doctor. He wanted me to have lots of pathological tests. By the grace of Allah, nothing was found in those tests. The doctor gave up. I doubt how much these Bangladeshi doctors know. However, I am gradually recuperating. Inshallah, I shall come round before Eid.
