A thread for all the things you regret. I'll go first

When visiting the Bangladeshi countryside as a kid(12 years old), we stopped at my parents village, particularly my fathers. My uncle was a political commissioner there, so we had connections, but it isn't about that. So one day, I am hanging out at a pond with some cousins, we meet a relatively young boy around my age at that time. I asked him what he was doing. He was mostly hanging around sitting beside a tree.

So he had a whistle in his hand, I asked if I could take a look, I should also add that the place where I was staying isn't that developed their is a mainly a police station and a market which bisects through the middle. Houses surrounded the market.

I looked at the whistle, and decided it would be funny If I threw it in the pond, so thats exactly what I did. The boy didn't get angry or anything. He just said in a solemn voice, that the whistle was a gift from his uncle for Eid. I instantly felt bad. I could tell that it meant something to him and his family wasn't too well off. It's something I regret till now.

Atleast you had the guts to regret and share your story. We have all done something we did in our youth which if we could correct.

But I am astonished that the kid didn’t show any retaliation

Omd. I came to this thread to say the same thing. About regret of being mad about cricket and having a passion and love for Bangladesh cricket because of my visit in 2004 to BD! Otherwise I used to like Windies early 2000s and England (in test). Something about BD cricket the passion the hype made me wanna follow bd cricket team, be a staunch supporter that even when I’m busy I somehow can make time and space to watch a BD game at least for a bit!


Wish I never got into cricket at all. And stuck to football. 2004 turned me into a cricket mad in terms of being more in love with the game, more into it and playing more. Otherwise in my premier school days, early highschool days Football was my main passion!

This is a very emotional and genuine story, Dinraat bhaiya. I touched me. We all did and constantly do wrong by others and hurt others, sometimes not realizing and sometimes knowingly and bluntly. Acknowledging it, contemplating it genuinely and having regrets about hurting someone is a beautiful thing. From your writing, I feel the sincerity in your heart, my dear friend. It is a good thread. Show continuous empathy and compassion for others and all living being while moving forward, Dinraat, hopefully we will find redemption.

I also hurt you in the past, hope you will forgive me.

Regret many things. But regrets shouldn’t be thought about much about. Life goes on. Be better next time.


Just to say a regret.
I remember, last time I went to BD, 6/7years ago. I was in my car (parked on side of road, my driver who is from Mymensingh went to pick up few stuffs from shop), this old person, a male, beggar had those crutches to help him walk, in the bazar, came upto my window and asked for money to buy a lunghi, in a soft spoken pleading ways as the beggars do especially older ones. He said to me, “Oh bah Londoni bhai, ekan noya lunghi fintam, noya lunghir poisha dibai ni amar doya kori” (Hello, Brother from London, I want a new lunghi, will you give me a new lunghi money).

I was in a mind of things going on, some personal stuffs. I did wanted to give him to get a decent lunghi, then I thought he won’t most likely buy it and would prolly eat it or just save up or who knows who the gang leader is. So I had the idea to take him to the inner market stores where Lunghis are sold and to physically go buy one for him and giving it to him. But, something in my mind just dragged me away then my driver came, from the shop, and we had to go was in kind of hurry. And I think I said next time or something. While I was going in home I felt this bad feeling, not giving to the old man, it’s the way he asked and tbh no other beggar asked for any lunghi sari or anything before, they just ask for some money/Taka if they see a person in car or from London/abroad!


One thing annoys me in BD.some of the local deshis always say, “how many will you give taka too”, “there’ll be more coming if you give to one beggar”.
I’m like in UK, minimum one gives in charity is least £10, even if it’s £5 it’s still over 500taka BD, so why do you Bdeshi citizens In BD think giving 10taka, 20taka (which is 10p, 20p approx) To goreeb manush. Is like giving too much?
But wait a minute, I’m only giving 10taka or 20taka a person (even though you lot tell me to give 2taka a beggar goreeb), it wont make upto even £5 unless I give to 25 goreebs 20taka each.

Maybe some of us living in west think differently. I get the rate, mentality is different in 3rd nations.



My advice to those who think small minded. Give as much as you can. You will get more in return. Yes, you will. Don’t influence others not to give. When you die, charities you gave will come to your aid in the day of judgement.
