76 Experiences You Can Only Have from Living in Chittagong

Wonder Sonder

Every once in a while, we are moved to remember the city of our youth, and in that regard, my reverence for Chittagong, although put on trial by the inhumane urban planning mechanisms currently at play in the city, has remained constant over the years. Of course, I am biased, but then who isn’t, when it comes to the place they grew up, if they were (un)lucky enough to even grow up in a sprawling metropolis.

In my lifetime, the city has started to expand and lose some of the most unique features about it, which have long distinguished it architecturally from neighboring Cox’s Bazar, Dhaka, Comilla, or even elsewhere. But the most significant development in recent years is haphazard construction, and most of it, illegally construed. Yet, I reckon that if you’re interested in experiencing one of the lost strongholds of culture, alongside the largest hub of a diverse group…

Auld Lang Syne
– Robert Burns

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
and auld lang syne?
.
For auld lang syne, my jo,
for auld lang syne,
we’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.
.
And surely ye’ll be your pint-stoup!
and surely I’ll be mine!
And we’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.
.
We twa hae run about the braes,
and pou’d the gowans fine;
But we’ve wander’d mony a weary fit,
sin’ auld lang syne.
.
We twa hae paidl’d in the burn,
frae morning sun till dine;
But seas between us braid hae roar’d
sin’ auld lang syne.
.
And there’s a hand, my trusty fiere!
and gie’s a hand o’ thine!
And we’ll tak’ a right gude-willie waught,
for auld lang syne.

Pearls of Wisdom

Ode to a Nightingale
– John Keats

My heart aches, and a drowsy numbness pains
         My sense, as though of hemlock I had drunk,
Or emptied some dull opiate to the drains
         One minute past, and Lethe-wards had sunk:
‘Tis not through envy of thy happy lot,
         But being too happy in thine happiness,—
                That thou, light-winged Dryad of the trees
                        In some melodious plot
         Of beechen green, and shadows numberless,
                Singest of summer in full-throated ease.
.
O, for a draught of vintage! that hath been
         Cool’d a long age in the deep-delved earth,
Tasting of Flora and the country green,
         Dance, and Provençal song, and sunburnt mirth!
O for a beaker full of the warm South,
         Full of the true, the blushful Hippocrene,
                With beaded bubbles winking at the brim,
                        And purple-stained mouth;
         That I might drink, and leave the world unseen,
                And with…
