Beyond the limit

 What is your limit ?   let's call this a mystery , a great mystery . What i have been doing for these last couple of years is repeating the same old story again and again with different photographs . Going deep in to it at the start and then ending it with some words of wisdom . First get emotional with my personal emotions then again  start writing it right here in this blog with   heartbroken words and bang you got another " Light up the darkness "or  " Faces of the unknown " .  Writing about emotions really helps me carry on , actually i find inspiration in my own stories most of the time . But what happens when all the emotions you had , all the love that you lost , all the damns that you gave away turns right back on you and says " Hi man , you know what i never cared about you . I was actually laughing at your words and your emotions "  Well what the hell should i do now ?  Get more emotional and keep  fighting a worth for nothing fight or start writing a book on a broken heart ? , Nah   

 The only thing i know is i can't start all over again .  You can never go back and change your past , oh wait you must be thinking that someone will invent a time machine for you right ? tell you what that thing is not coming . People come out from nowhere after learning rough lessons in life and starts  saying " hey i am a different person now " You know what buddy , you are the same old loser . If you gotta win the race in life , don't give a damn about the people who never gave a damn about you . We keep getting crazy about the mistakes we made  , we should be , i should be  , everyone should be but that wont change the outcome , you are still a loser , me too .  

The thing is you will always have to  be a loser to be a winner . Loss is a practical lesson and win is its result . If you don't learn your lessons , you can never be a winner . Never say i am over , because your limit is a mystery . I am done with my own emotions , its about time for me to go beyond the lines , go beyond the limits and take an awful amount of risks . Discovering myself has always been a big challenge for me , lets give it a try once again . I have to re-discover myself . I have to find the real me from somewhere .


Mary Kay Ash

The best is still a million miles away . Its the  conquest of life . The Limitless dreams and countless heartbreaking words is not the way to settle this . Its more about survival now . Its more about going beyond the limits now . Keep me in your prayers

The Gift of loneliness .

We are human beings .  We are the  people who dream , we are the people who hope , we are the people who love , we are the people who win  . But most of the time our dreams , our hope or our love goes to waste and then we have this so called overwhelming sadness . Its a sticky kinda pain . It doesn't go away that easily but one day when your time will come to understand the fact that its all a part of our life , it happened because it was suppose to happen . Pain is the best teacher . It cleans you up and teaches you how to stay strong . 

Biologically we are born as a human being but technically we are idiots who needs to learn more everyday  . Your three or four year old Facebook status is an example for that .  We gotta learn , learn how to build up a strong  person . Learn how to pick up the pieces of our broken dreams . Set up an ultimate goal but you have set up small goals to reach that like every sea needs the atoms of H20 to be a giant .  

If life leaves you lonely , be your own soldier and live . It only gets tougher . Today you will cry for your love or some other stuff but tomorrow all these things will look stupid to you . You will learn the real meaning of your life . Be hurt , be broken but then again be strong .

The Crying Need Of The Planet .

Once upon a time , this world was filled with green trees , fresh water and people . There was a time when children used to play games in the green field . There was a time when the water was so pure we could see through it . There was a time when we had rivers full of fresh fishes and trees full of fresh fruits .

But today there are trees but that has no leaf  , there is water but  it is full of poison and there are people but they don't have any place to live . The water is so dark that you can hardly see your face in it . There are  rivers but it  has no water  . The fishes of the rivers are poisoned and the fruits of the trees are deadly . There is a dying planet in this universe and we are currently living in it . We must work together to revive this dying world and its nature because its the only place we have .

We can all talk but it is always  easier said than done . Don't wait for others to dig in .. If you can plant ten trees and tell ten people about the importance of planting trees . I think at least 5 of them will understand , as soon as they do that they will start planting trees and maybe 3 of them will tell 30 more people about it .  With the modern technologies we don't really need the analogue way of spreading a message but sometimes it works better than anything else . You don't have to be young or old , weak or strong , rich or poor to change the world . You can do anything you set your mind to . You can change the world , we can change the world

And maybe one day we will wake and see a playground full of green grass , a river full of clean water and a world full of joy  . Its all up to you and me now .


Sooner or later, we will have to recognise that the Earth has rights, too, to live without pollution. What mankind must know is that human beings cannot live without Mother Earth, but the planet can live without humans.

Evo Morales

Pollution is nothing but the resources we are not harvesting. We allow them to disperse because we've been ignorant of their value.

R. Buckminster Fuller

Our meaning is to make our little planet Earth a better place to live, to stop wars, disarm nuclear missiles, to stop diseases, AIDS, plague, cancer and to stop pollution.

Uri Geller


                                   We already have the statistics for the future: the growth percentages of                                   pollution, overpopulation, desertification. The future is already in place.

                    Gunter Grass




Approximately 80% of our air pollution stems from hydrocarbons released by vegetation, so let's not go overboard in setting and enforcing tough emission standards from man-made sources.

Ronald Reagan

“Water and air, the two essential fluids on which all life depends, have become global garbage cans.” 

― Jacques-Yves Cousteau

“Destruction is a man's will,Nevertheless Prevention is also a man's will,Its a man's choice to choose between Destruction and Prevention. :)” 

― Babu Rajan


        The health effects of air pollution imperil human lives. This fact is well-documented

 Eddie Bernice Johnson

Have we failed to slow global warming pollution in part because climate and environmental activists have been too polite and well behaved?

Jeff Goodell

Nature is a blessing from the Almighty . Our job is to protect it . Promise yourself that you will try your level best to keep the beautiful world alive , Don't fake that promise or you will give an unimaginable horror to the future generations .  

Happy world environment day .

" Faces of the unknown ( Colour ) "

We live in a world of 7 billion and we all have faces , the faces of our own and There is a story behind every face , a sadness beneath every smile , hope behind every emotion and I always try my best to find these hidden stories, sadness and emotions behind every face i capture , not just with my camera , with my heart as well . Everywhere i go i see faces , the faces that i have never seen before are probably the faces i will never forget .  Their faces tells me something , i see something through their eyes and i don't have words to describe that feeling . 

When i see my face in the mirror , i see different faces of the same person and that person is me . It may sound funny but i actually can't remember my own face . I carry many faces with me . The people i  photographed  , the people i have only seen once . I try find my self in these faces because i am lost , lost in the pain deep down me . I am really close to the children's faces . Sometimes you can see the world in a child's eye . They have the ability to smile while in the darkest moment of their lives and i believe we can't keep our tears away in the happiest moments of our lives .  " Life is not a math that can be solved by theories " Its a short time , we should be happy with what we have and work hard for what we want . These children's can teach us how to be happy with a little .

A young boy i found beside a local car store .

What are you doing here ? 

- I am working 

Do you go to school ? 

- No 

Do you want to go there ? 

- Yes

He was playing in the field , he saw me with my camera and posed for a photograph .

They were playing a game of their own , i don't what they call that game . 

He says " I rock "  

"That's how big your heart is "

They were sitting beside a traditional " mejhban " gate , waiting for some food .

For you , for them

Some kids having their long awaited " Mejhban food '. Tradition is not only for the rich or poor , its about sharing your happiness and sorrow with everyone .

My precious

Found these three little ladies in a village called " Ghobindor Khill "here in chittagong , just beside my grand father's Mansion . I photographed all of them . One thing i noticed about them is they never stop smiling ., A priceless , everlasting smile. Hope we will meet again . I never forget them even if we don't 

The brightest smile 

The face i never seen before is probably the face i will never forget

I will remember you 

I met her twice . First day she ran away from me . The next day she came to me and asked to take a photo of her . Maybe she will forget my camera and me but i will always remember her .


There is something in her smile , Something mysterious .

Don't just smile , Laugh and don't just laugh , laugh out loud !  

Thanks for the smile dear !

Can I take your Photo ? 


What's your name ? 

I wont tell but you can take my photo 

A smile brighter than sun

Hi what's your name ?

My name is " hihihi " —

Brothers under the sun .

 They were walking around , trying to find a tree to rescue themselves from the unbearable heat , i found them on the  way and realized their innocents will never talk to you .  

Smile for the moment . 

Found this little boy beside a local slum a year ago and i have never see a smile as great as this . 

Found this guy around my house riding his cycle . 

Don't hide your face from the sunlight , let it warm your soul up !

Why don't you like me ? 

Because you are weird . 

Cycle Boys 

Another biker who lives around my house , he saw me with my camera and asked me for a photograph . 

Smile a little , just a little 

I had to walk to reach the 15 th floor because the elevator wasn't working . I found this little lady on my way and i  took her photograph 

My eyes , your eyes 

He wasn't allowed to play with his friends and he was sitting beside the field alone . He didn't mind my company 

2 of them 

These two young ladies goes to a school just beside the one i used to go to . I found them and i guess one of them didn't like me at all . 

In the end of the day the journey is more important than the end or the start . Life is a journey , maybe a short one or maybe a long one but we gotta make use of the little time we have in our hands . Work hard , live hard , pray as much as you can and keep smiling .
