Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today...

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one
I have less hair but I have gray matters growing instead... if you drop me a line, here is how..:)
Life is like............
Where we laugh, we mourn and we eat
and we understand it was too late to start working............and a question remains...

Resigned from my first job as Assistant Professor
I worked as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Islamic University of Technology from 13/12/2005-23/09/2006. One day onward from my birthday, I resigned to join my PhD in University of Southampton, UK from 2nd October. 2006.

My main task was teaching. Tried to promote a bit of research in small scale. I had the busiest time in my life organizing new courses like Signals and Systems, Random Signals and Processes and Advanced Communications Techniques. All these courses were offered for the first with our team efforts in the year earlier. I was one of the main mastermind to plan these courses. Still a lot to do with these courses. Also supervised few projects and they all lead to one or two papers each, which is good ! I have resigned mainly due to personal reasons. <
