Online Chat Bangladesh

Keskustelumme päättyi 10:46

Razib on ’professional blogger’ Bangladeshissa. Hän asuu Dhakassa (10 miljoonaa asukasta) ja hänen bloginsa käsittelee Southeast Asia (Kaakkois-Aasia) asioita, julkkiksia, yrityksiä, Intian talouskehitystä, high-techiä ja satunnaisesti suomalaisten yritysten etabloitumista alueelle.

Hän on haastatellut minua ja kirjoittanut meistä ja toiminnastamme blogissaan. Pidämme yhteyttä ja chattailemme GoogleTalkissa aika ajoin. Razib kirjoittaa työkseen ja ansaitsee bloggaamisellaan elantonsa. Hän opetti tiedotusoppia yliopistolla ja kirjoitti teknologia-alan julkaisuihin artikkeleita free-lancerina, mutta päätti vuosi takaperin ryhtyä kokopäivätoimiseksi bloggaajaksi. Hän ansaitsee näin paremmin kuin yliopiston opettajana.

Huomasin Bangladeshiä koskevan uutisen Hesarin online versiosta. Kävin vilkaisemassa Razibin blogia ja huomioni kiinnittyi muutamiin itseäni kiinnostaviin posteihin. Tässä eräs niistä…

Avasin GoogleTalkin...

"AKTEL is a familiar name in Bangladesh. AKTEL is the second largest mobile phone operator in Bangladesh. I could not find the current subscriber base of AKTEL but it has more than several million subscribers for sure." Kirjoitta Razib.

The address of the website of AKTEL is http://www.aktel.com

Helge: "The controversy surrounding kissing Shilpa Shetty is going remain alive for the next few days despite the fact that Richard Gere has apologized for his action.

“His kissing of Shilpa Shetty has caused a huge uproar in India and thanks to the continuous showing of the kissing scene in Indian TV channels, many people in India are angry with Richard Gere. A number of law suits have been filed against him and Shilpa Shetty and even an arrest warrant has been issued too. This apology has come in a very crucial moment.” Writes Razib in his blog.
