You won't lose those documents, so relax ...

Just contact your manufacturer's customer service hotline or website and take it from there. If you were in Dhaka, I could suggest a bunch of places where they could tell you what's wrong and probably fix it.

It must be a psychological thing. During Eid you are very happy and elated. Extra estrogen flow through your veins make everything feel above the ordinary.

Estrogen flow? But orphy has an undercarriage he regularly gives a "how's-your-father". His base hormone should be testosterone!!! Orphy feel free to claim otherwise.

BTW I think you mean Endorphins

Serious answer:
Watch TV programs from your local areas. Anything starting from News, weather report, to sitcoms and dramas.

I would give News and weather report more priority...tells you so much about the locally used terms and accents.

Question:
Why do we all say "hats off to you"? Neither do we wear hats on a regular basis, nor do we wear gamcha on our head...this should suit the Sikh people the most. "Turban off to you Sir". No?

Hmmm, don't quite know what a "freshie" accent is, but yes, it's certainly possible to change your accent (it tends to happen over time naturally if you move somewhere else and actors do it all the time). After spending many years in the States, for instance, my vowels are much longer now than they used to be.

There's a Bengali acquaintance of mine (we'll avoid naming names) who did his undergrad at Oxford (the town, not the University, but he doesn't generally include that detail) and who has developed and now speaks with a rather passable Oxonian accent. His only drawback is an infinitesimal pause before he utters anything (during which, presumably, he works out the accent in his head).

ok thanks kabir and shaad...but i dont really want an accent where i live, i want a more London accent ( i prolly sound really snobbish and picky at the moment) because it seems more acceptable in UK here. my baba always says that to get into medicine and impress in interviews its important to communictae well, and that the london accent is the best accent to copy if any.

shaad, i have a problem saying "only" whereas most people would say own-ly as a pronounciation whereas i say on-ly, chik-un instead of chick-en etc etc little things like that. does any1 have the same problem?

Because there's so much of it, Orphy. To prevent us from getting bored by this surfeit of meat (refrigerators and freezers being relatively new inventions), our mothers have always had hundreds of traditional handed-down recipes, most of which we only see (or rather, taste) shortly after Eid-ul-Azha. So, in this case, variety literally is the spice of life.

A useful criterion to keep in mind Orphy, when deciding upon the starter wife.

Then I'd second Kabir's suggestion, but trying to copy more of a major BBC newscaster's accent, than say, those from regional news or weather reports.

I don't know how it works in London, but for Toronto, there's a couple of channels that are for completely local news. And the best part of it is, they're all "good" sources. One of them is Cable Pulse 24 (CP24).

It's actually very effective as far as I've seen. I picked many things from there. It also gives you an idea about the local lingos, which are actually accepted at all levels of conversation.

BTW Here is my question:

FDA today approved Cloned cows, pigs, lambs etc. as edible so now meat of cloned animals will be available in the market. I am just curious what if a cloned cow be halal? Can one sacrifice a cloned camel or goat during Eidul Adha?

Cloned meat? Boy am I behind on the news these days. I didnt know we made any headway into cloning animals after that sheep - I think it was named "Dolly" - died sooner than people expected...
