Mosque of Dhaka New market
The construction of the market started in 1952 by CBD during the period of Nurul Amin, the Chief Minister of East Pakistan. Construction was completed in 1954. This heralded the beginning of a new area of development towards modernizing Dhaka. Rickshaw ride or walking along the narrow lanes of old Dhaka for shopping was not a happy experience for families. Old Dhaka was too conservative, noisy and crowded. Ironically, Mr. Nurul Amin’s modernization project boomeranged as people talked against it. Some believed New Market and Shahbagh Hotel were made exclusively for Nurul Amin’s family. Mosques were built outside the Arabian Peninsula as Muslims moved to other parts of the world. Egypt became occupied by Muslim Arabs as early as 640, and since then so many mosques have appeared throughout the country that its capital city, Cairo, has acquired the nickname of city of a thousand minarets. Egyptian mosques vary in amenities, as some have Islamic schools (madrasahs) while others have hospitals or tombs. Built soon after the conquest of northwest Africa, the first mosque built in this region is the Great Mosque of Kairouan (in Tunisia) founded by the Umayyad general Uqba Ibn Nafi during the second half of the 7th century and considered as the oldest place of worship in the western Islamic world. The Great Mosque of Kairouan, which is one of the most significant and best preserved examples of early Islamic mosques, served due to its architectural characteristics as a model to many later mosques especially in north Africa and Al-Andalus. Mosques in Sicily and Spain do not primarily reflect the architecture of Visigothic predecessors, but instead reflect the architecture introduced by the Muslim Moors. It is hypothesized, however, that there were some elements of pre-Islamic architecture which were Islamicized into Andalusi and Maghribi architecture, for example, the distinctive horseshoe arch.

The Rash Yatra is mainly celebrated in northern parts of Bengal but these days also observed in different cities of the state. The popular procession called Rash Yatra, is the main attraction for tourists, the yatra features clay models which depicts the deeds and various phases of Lord Krishna’s life. Nowadays the festival has taken the form of communal celebrations while in older days was only limited to royal families.

Dublar island famous and infamous as well. The cyclone those hits bay of Bengal mostly ends up hitting this area. Its in the southern edge of the great Sundarbans inhabited by seasonal fishermen who lives there few months of the year. There is no regular transportation system to go there. Only way to reach there is by boat. And safest time would be during winter when the sea is calm. The fair on the Dubla island was started in 1923 by Hari Bhajan, a disciple of Thakur Hari Chand. The life of Hari Bhajan was very extraordinary. During his stay in Sundarbans for twenty four years, he lived on the fruits of the forest. He had many disciples in nearby villages. One of his notable works was to start the Dubla Rash Mela during the Rash Purnima. To celebrate the occasion and keep alive the memory of Thakur Hari Chand, the devotees, especially the fishermen of the Sundarbans, organise this five-day fair. This year estimated 100 thousand people attended this festival. I have seen many foreign photographers. Common lens was canon 70-200.

Lightening the life at Loknath Mondir during rakher upobash,
Long time later, Baba Lokenath finished his meditations, and went to eastern part of India, and settled at a small town village called Barodi,near Dhaka in Bangladesh and lived at Dangu Kormokar’s house. Dangu Kormokar was a poor family, and then after Baba Lokenath lived with them, the family changed and become rich. When Baba Lokenath was new to the village, he was taunted by the villagers. When the villagers found out Baba Lokenath’s superiority, they become Baba Lokenath’s devotees. From this on, Baba Lokenath’s name went all over India. On the 19th day of Jyestha, 1297(June 1, 1890 C.E.) at 11:45AM, at age 160, Baba Lokenath took his Mahasamadhi. As self-realized master, he proclaims to the world, “I am eternal, I am deathless. After this body falls, do not think that everything will come to an end. I will live in the hearts of all living beings in my subtle astral form. Whoever will seek my refuge, will always receive my grace.
