Magnitude 5.0 earthquake hits Bangladesh

Around 1 hour and 20 mins ago at 12:51 AM (Dhaka, GMT +6) an earthquake of magnitude 5.0 hit Bangladesh. I felt it as if someone was rocking my bed. The quake was quite strong for my little or no earthquake experience. It lasted from 10 to 30 seconds, cannot say accurately. So far the only news on media is from BDNews24 site which says someone broke his leg when he jumped from a floor.

The earthquake was felt in Maymansingh, 115 KM away from Dhaka and the depth was around 12 km or 7.5 miles.

However more recent and accurate data (also scientific data) with maps can be found at USGS site.

The Ultimate Blog about Dhaka

I was born in  Dhaka city, the capital of Bangladesh. Although I am living in Kuala Lumpur right now, I cannot seem to forget Dhaka. Anyone who has grown up in Dhaka will find this blog at blogspot to provide a very nostalgic feeling. is a site where a retired Civil Engineer Mr. Ershad Ahmed has put in thousands of images from Dhaka. This is a wonderful blog where one can find pictures of his childhood School ( I did ),  the playground, the roads etc. The site has an very large repository of images. It also contains the history of Dhaka and many pictures historical elements in Dhaka from past and present. If you want to travel to Dhaka visit this blog and go through it, you will know Dhaka. This blog is a treasure cove for the Dhaka dweller.

Bangla Forums and Blogs

Image:Flag of Bangladesh.svg  Although there are a huge number of people who's native tongue is Bangla (Bengali) in computing world it has been a late comer. This probably had to do something with the region not being financially viable for internationalization of popular softwares and Bangla always have had quite a quarrel with keyboard layouts, font and scripts. Anyway with Unicode being more popular it has become quite a standard and more and more Bangla sites have come into being. I am going to mention a few top ones that I like. is a mix between a forum and a blog and it is quite popular. Typing in Bangla is quite easy at this blogsite although Opera browser is not supported yet. is a online writers community where I was able to find some good articles and writings. But it has a closed door policy and from the site policy and the practice of the moderators it seems that the site is only for a people with a certain mental blend or Philosophy. Its seems in order to be open-minded the site owners have made it a place for people with similar mental structure rather than being open to all kinds of input.

চলো বাংলার গান গাই.
