Many many galaxies away, in a planet very much like our own.........


Alex : Hi John, you didn't come to work Yesterday?

John :Yeah, I was at Bangladesh Embassy trying to get a visa.

Alex : Oh really! What happened? I've heard that these days they have become
very strict?

John : Yeah, but I managed to get it.

Alex : How long did it take to get it stamped?

John : Oh! It was a long queue. Bill Gates was standing in front of me and
they really gave him a hard time the poor guy had even brought the property
papers for his house in Seattle to show them that he will come back. I went
there at 4 am to get in the queue and there were tons of people ahead of

Alex : Really? In Bangladesh, at the US Embassy it only takes an hour to get
a visa.

John : Yeah! But that's because who in Bangladesh would want to come to the
US except Americans who have now taken Bangladeshi nationality and want to
bring their kids here.

Alex : So, when are you leaving?

John : As soon as I get my tickets from the company in Bangladesh. I am so
excited, I will be getting a chance to fly on Biman Bangladesh Airlines.
Sort of a dream come true.

Alex : How long are you planning to stay in Bangladesh?

John : What do you mean by how long? I will try to settle in Bangladesh. My
company has promised me that they will process my Green Book (Bangladeshi

Alex : Really! You lucky person, man, it is very difficult to get a Green
Book in Bangladesh. Last year my cousin and his family went there on a
tourist visa and they are now not coming back.

John : Yeah, that's why, I am planning to marry a Bangladeshi girl there
and then sponsor my parents and my brother and sister.

Alex : But you can find lot of American girls in Chittagong & Dhaka.

John : Yeah! but , I prefer Bangladeshi girls they are so much superior to
ours and what a great tan!

Alex : What city are you going to?

John : Comilla, the company has it's office downtown, yeah, the salary is
good but the cost of living is quite high because of all the people flocking
to this high tech mecca.

Alex : I hear the exchange rate is now $100 for a Taka! That's just too
much! What about Rajshahi, Khulna & Bagura?

John : No idea, but cheaper than Noakhali. Noakhali is like the world
headquarters of technology.

Alex : I hear that the quality of life there is incredible?

John : Yes, you can get a BMW car for Tk.30,000, and a Mercedes for less
than Tk.45,000, but my dream is to purchase RoadMaster FX-800 (the smallest
car in Bangladesh), which costs Tk.90,000 but what a sexy design, great
curves and it purrs to the touch!

Alex : Boy, sound like you would want to get it and take it to Hotel
Al-Helal (Residential)!

Alex : By the way, which company are you going with?

John : Mama-bhaigna Technologies, a pure Bangladesh company, specialized in
embedded software.

Alex : Oh really! You are lucky to be able to work in a pure Bangladesh
company, they are really intelligent and unlike American body shops who have
opened their fly by night outfits in Bangladesh. Bangladeshi companies pay
you even when you are on the bench. My friend Paul Allen used his bench time
to visit the Cox's Bazar coast, the most gorgeous place in Bangladesh.

John : Yeah man, you are right. I hope the US learns something from them
and follows in their footsteps. My future plan is to enroll my children to
Abu Zar Gifaree College, recently ranked among the top undergraduate schools
by the Daily Jugantor newspaper.

Alex : How are you going to cope with their language?

John : From my school days I've been learning Bangla. I always dreamed that
one day I will go to Bangladesh ever since my uncle brought me that T-shirt
from Chittagong College. At the consulate they tested my proficiency in
Bangla and were quite impressed by my score in TOBAFL (Test of Bangla as
foreign language)

Alex : Boy! You are so lucky!

John : Yeah, I will be traveling in the world's fastest train,
Subarno(Dhaka-Chittagong), world's largest theme park, Sitakunda theme Park,
and visit the famous Dallywood where you can see actors like, Rahman, Ajeem,
Rajjak, Alamgir, Anwar Hossain, Sujata,Suchanda, Shabana, Babita, Kabari and
many many more.

Alex : You know, Khaleda Zia is scheduled to visit us next year and I hear
that She may increase the number of visas.

John : That's true. Last month, Infosys - Dr. Jamilur Reza visited White
House and donated Tk.20,000 for Infrastructure development at Silicon valley
and has promised more if we follow the model of high tech city of Noakhali
and Bill Gates also got a chance of meeting him. Very lucky person.

Alex : Will you be visiting Dave? I hear that he has made it big there and
now has a beautiful house on the bank of karnafuly river in Chittagong.

Good luck John.

John : Same to you Alex, and don't go to the Bangladesh consulate wearing
Punjabi because they will think you are too Bangladeshaized and may doubt
that will ever comeback and your application may be rejected. And, yes,
don't forget to say Assalamualikum, to the visa officer it will show them
that you are a cultured person.
