The way I have seen the campus, the way the views were consolidated on my memories shall remain the same. Biological cells will wear out, but not the memories. They’ll keep shining like the light through a finely cut diamond, which would keep shining as long as the light source is alive.
I photographed a few characters from Aftabnagar & Meradia Haat.
Eid-ul-Adha is one of the two biggest religious festivals of Musalmaans. Major portion of Bangladeshi population call themselves Musalmaan & they celebrate this festival with sheer joy & enthusiasm.
This festival involves the ritual of sacrificing an animal ( which must be Halal) in the name of Allah, through which the devotion of the sacrificing person reaches to Allah in a symbolic manner.
As an animal is a must, this clearly boosts the requirement of healthy animals . To fulfill the demand, temporary cattle markets or Haats are organized in the cities & villages of Bangladesh. Such two temporary cattle markets are Aftabnagar Haat & Meradia Haat.
The last semester has begun. After a few months, I’ll part with this campus. It Turns out that, I already feel sore about it. When officially I’ll no longer be a student of BUET, I’ll have to watch these photo to reminisce the evergreen memories and moments.
And I continue sharing the places that remain silent; always or not.
Almost all university campuses on earth are bursting with life,joy and fun. BUET was an exception up to the year 2005. It was known as the nerd camp of Bangladesh. But somehow situation started to change, thanks to the effort of some energetic and extremely enthusiastic cultural activists. Now BUET campus has become one of the most culturally active, dynamic and joyous campuses in Bangladesh. Though the nerd camp identity has lost it’s glory ( You have to sacrifice your previous identity to some extent to achieve another brand new identity), the newfound Identity is celebrated here with utmost enthusiasm. Cultural functions, different competitive programs etc. keep happening in almost every week.
Positive change? or Negative? That decision is for the students to take. Yet, there are some lone runners who prefer the old identity over the new one. Deviation from the root purpose might cause the uprooting of academic Glory ( which is already happening).
I prefer to stay separated from all the fun and chaos. I enjoy the quite side of my campus, I love to walk on those corners where the already popular or wannabe popular never come. And I do love to capture those corners in my memory machine.
In this wonderful world, some people are like open books. They want others to know about themselves. All you’ve got to do is to read. And there are these introvert, solitude freak-ish persons who prefer to keep themselves in secret zone.
When it comes to categorize myself, it becomes a bit critical. I am neither an open book nor a locked one. Some pages are full of colors, some are just laying empty. Perhaps, the seemingly empty ones are written with invisible ink, waiting to be discovered someday…
সবই ক্ষয়ে যাবে, মরে যাবে, পচে যাবে। থেকে যাবে আত্মা, গুমরে গুমরে কেঁদে যাবে – একাকী।
