I hear my childhood friend Debashish biswas is pretty famous in Bd. We sat next to each other at Wills Little Flower school. One time I remember we had a pretty big test coming up so I learned half the material and he learned the other half and we just copied each other during the test.
Saw the infamous Ron Jeremy with couple of hot blonds at Universal theater.
One time magician Jewel Aich called our home and I was really impressed by his pleasant voice and how well spoken he was.
Heard one of Governator's speech at Vannuys. He was very handsome and 'forsha'.
Took a pic with Habib (who is very short). The show was excellent.
Saw Alicia Silverstone buying organic vegetable at Santa monica.

Took interview of Dr. Yunus
As an active member of Kach Kancha was lucky to be around Dadabhai, Begum Sufia Kamal, Dr. Abdullah Al Muti, Hashem Khan, Shamsur Rahman, Rafikunnabi,
Met PC Sarkar and David Copperfield
Took interview of Kabir Chowdhury, Neelima Ibrahim, Anisuzzaman, Syed Manzurul Islam, Shirajul Islam Chowdhury
Met many of the famous painter, writer, poet, actor/actress, singers of BD and few of them are on my fb
Met and shook hands with G. Bush

Met few cricketers here and there. That does not count since I am a cricket fan and live in London with Lords cricket ground only will power away. All you have to do is wait near media centre on test match day and you will see all of your past favourites.
