It was 1999. I was returning after an interview at Khulna University in the night coach. Those dacoits were all wearing lungi and had sharp desi weapons at best. Started beating the driver somewhere near Faridpur and forced a detour. Emptied everyone's pocket - interestingly my 500 taka note which was not in my wallet was not taken or should I say they failed to gather the idea that I would be so courageous not to surrender everything.

Well I know if they found the money at any point I could be in deep trouble. Anyways, they ran out of the bus in a jiffy, Usain Bolt fail. I reached Dhaka around noon whereas was supposed to be home before breakfast.

Not burglarized but severely beaten by a group of gangbangers in the Mission District of San Francisco in 1988. I was 21, impetuous and got into a loud argument with the local heroin dealer over a game of pool at the Albion. His guys were waiting for me when I left the bar later. I was overpowered, thrown down, and viciously kicked in the ribs and the head close to 30 times before a passing SFPD patrol car caused them to cease and flee. No concussion, broken ribs or anything by the supreme grace of GOD. I never pressed charges.

I got robbed pretty recently. It was by the Bangladesh Cricket team. After they lost to associate teams they robbed my passion for the game. It was a terrible situation to face. I never pressed charges.

Koyta bolbo? ovigota to ar kom holo na ai bepare..

But just talking about the recent incident which is still very fresh for me so writing in details- where I was successful from escaping..

It was after Magrib prayer, I was returning from masjid and it was raining lightly.. when I entered a lane close to my house I say 3-4 young ppl also entered the lane behind me. As it was raining there were no other people in that lane at that time also the street lamp was not turned on.. some faint light coming from nearby houses. But as I could feel one of the people behind me started walking quickly and crossed me and when he was heading towards me after stopping I just could remember he was trying to say something but Alhamdulillah due to my natural instinct and previous experience I could sense something is wrong and I started shouting. The three people who are closer to me got startled by this as it was very much unexpected for them as they haven't yet started their action. Then I realized if I proceed forward I won't be able to make up running to the end of the lane as I just entered few steps into that lane and quite few yards to go. Though it was easier to move forward for me at that time. However i don't know what happened I made a U turn and started to run forward. The guy who was closer to me attempted to catch me but failed. The other to guys was far from me but as I moved few steps backward I saw the last one standing just in front of me and from the back someone shouted to that guy to catch me....

I don't know what I was thinking at that time but I incresed the speed and there were little space to move as I was in one side of the wall and all I could do is crush on to that last guy. I was just hoping that I would drag him out of the lane and hope to find someone. But that guy seemed to be too strong for me. But I had only two choice then, either to stop and make the settlement or try my luck. I chose to proceed... It was still raining that time and the last thing I wanted just happened for me.. as i was close to that guy I slipped just in front of him and fell down.....

I thought that I would never fall down if I run like this on any time but it had to be that time... But then in split of second I realized that all the falter we face in life has something good deep inside it.. That guy had spread his arms to catch me and when I just fell in front of him I moved up and I could dodge him under his arm automatically and I could come out of the lane where I saw other ppl around.. Escaped...

I can still feel that every moment. It was one of the closest encounter i faced and I wonder as I was making disturbances and if I was caught at that time I would have been seriously harmed. It was just my natural instinct that drove me and as it came all of a sudden so I couldn't control also that place is quite safe in other days.. and as I was coming from mosque I was not carrying enough money or mobile phone to satisfy them so I wonder if they even would have caught me what was written in my fate at that time...
But from their side one of the mistakes I found in their operation is that the attempted to attack me bit early as they might have not thought that I would make the u turn and I also guess they are novice as when I shouted they just stopped for a few seconds and that gave me the time to move back and run. Better luck next time guys..

However I found a sweet small morale from the incident.. if you get stuck or feel short of luck at any point of life don't just fall back but move forward with patience and ambition there is always light and something good is waiting at the end of the tunnel from the Almighty..

I think I already said this in BC before but I will narrate again

I was walking in the street and this old Indian man stopped me. Very innocent looking old grandfather type fellow. Apparently he lost his baggage and have no money to go anywhere. He said he is a physician and if I buy his bus ticket to NJ, he will give me $10k. I said, ok you are a doctor? so what's your name? I don't have any money on me(I had some in wallet), but I will go to my univ campus which was around the corner and get some money from friends. He said okay. I went to the next corner and searched his name in my phone. Nothing came up. I returned to the same spot but he was nowhere to be seen. He was gone.

I saw him after few more months around the same area. He started walking to me and I just said "stop asking me for money, you are a scammer". He got pissed and yelled "you are a faggot" and ran away. I am like WTF just happened!!

Sears thekey dami ek pair juta kinay desh'e gasi. Biye khaite lagbey. ek din porsi. So anyways, choley asha'r shomoi hoisey. Suitcase gusalo shara. Ami last'a amar wife'er shari'r upor juta' jora rekhe suitcase lock koray disi. Dhaka airport, VIP'tey boshey asi. ek lok eshey passport ar shob luggage niye galo. Flight'er aro dui ghonta baki. Got our passports back. Full family niye plane'a uthlam.

Bashai ashchi, wife onno romm'a luggage khultey'i chilla chilli lagai disey. ki hoilo kay janey (woman)!! As ususal complain monay hoi. So room'er kasey jetei suni, "tumi tomar moila juta amar shari'r uppor rakso kano?"

Ami tho hotobak. Brand new juta, ek din porsi = moila juta?

Someone at the airport, opened the luggage took my shoes, swapped with their dirty shoes and I guess walked off with them. Nothing else was missing. Grrrrrrrrrrr!!!!! kada makha, worn out shoes over her shari.
