Wow! Which part of Sylhet? I have relatives everywhere in greater Sylhet, though my ancestral home is Habiganj.

Buscemi was hilarious in that movie.

The actress won an Oscar for the role she played as the cop, right?

I remember speaking with you over the phone once when you lived in Nashville. Did you socialize with any other Bangladeshi people in your time in Nashville?

Born in Faridpur, moved to Kushtia, Khulna, Barisal and then again Khulna, and finally to Dhaka where I spent most of my days in Bangladesh. Finally moved to London in 2005 and now live in Surrey.

Dear Asaad, it has been a pleasure talking to you during my lone time in Nashville. One day someone from Bangladesh Association called, I was totally surprised as I rarely shared my contact with anyone. Well he recognized you and invited me for his daughter's birthday which I humbly accepted. I was unable to attend though. Those days I was travelling to Dover and later Oklahoma every week for assigned projects before moving to Minnesota.
