Mizanur Rahman, a Bangladeshi youth blooms flower and produce fruits in the heart of desert

There is a saying that a talented person can produce flower even in the desert. Yes, this is done by a Bangladeshi Bengali youth, Mizanur Rahman.

Mizanur Rahman (Bengali: মিজানুর রহমান) is a man of Mekhal village of Hathazari upazila (sub-district) of Chittagong. Like the examples of other hundreds of people working in UAE, Mizan moved to United Arab Emirates to change his fate. He observed that some people were cultivating vegetables in the desert of UAE. Then he thought why we couldn’t produce flowers and fruits side by side flower.

In fact, to give his idea blooming into reality, he started the production and marketing of flowers and fruits. With this thought in mind, he started a nursery with just 200 square meters of land at Baoyadi Al Ain Central Market area in UAE. He cultivated mango, olive, grape, guava, lemon, rose and seedlings of various species of flowers.

Mizan is the eldest son of traders Kazi Md. Edris and Jannatul Ferdous. He went to Dubai in 2005 for first time with just taka 2.5 lacks in hand. He started his job in a shop, Habib recording, of Al-Aine area with just a salary of 300 Dirham. To increase his income, he started doing different small businesses.

With trying his luck in different businesses, he thought of doing something different. So, he started his idea to start a nursery in 2013 with a hope that this business will bring more fortune for him. He showed that idea can become reality with sincere effort and hard labor.

Mohammad Golam Kibria, a proud Bangladeshi is creating necessary framework and research for Namibia Government on fish farming

Let’s starts with a saying that let anyone teach fishing, he will eat for a day. Let anyone teach fish farming, he will eat forever.

Mohammad Golam Kibria (Bengali: মোহাম্মদ গোলাম কিবরিয়া) a proud Bangladeshi is doing the second-teaching others how to cultivate fish. But this is not in Bangladesh, but in a country like Namibia. He is working as a ‘Special Advisor’ to the Ministry of Fisheries and Sea Resources since 2008.

Namibia Govt realized that big social change can be possible through ‘Small-scale fishery’. Fishes are cultivated throughout Namibia. Golam Kibria got responsibility to create the necessary framework and research for this. Normally fishes are cultivated in Northern Namibia. In the southern part, fishes are cultivated in concrete cistern. The two species of African Catfish and Tilapia fishes are cultivated here. The Pangas, Shrimps, fishes like Curps can be produced here. And the Government of Namibia is also interested to increase the diversity of fish species by bringing fishes from Bangladesh.

Once upon a time, Namibia was producing 200 to 300 metric tons of fish per year. The figure rose to over one thousand metric tons after he was joined there. Government is trying to export fishes to the market of Europe by fulfilling the demand of the country.

He is trying so that skilled fishermen can come from Bangladesh to work or invest in Namibia. He is also trying to promote Bangladeshi model micro-credit in Namibia. He is also trying so that the traders of Bangladesh, the fishermen and the investors can get special privilege for tax exemption in Namibia.

Before coming to Namibia, Golam Kibria used to work in Vietnam for the Commonwealth. Before this, he worked in Thailand.
In 1994, he had completed his Master’s degree from the Bangladesh Agriculture University. He also worked for DANIDA and DFID for some time in Bangladesh. In 1999, He had completed his Masters from Asian Institute of Technology in Thailand.

In 2010, Golam Kibria was selected as the ‘Best Commonwealth advisor’. In the same year, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) nominated him as the Global Panel members. During his tenure in 2009, Namibia’s Ministry of Fisheries has given him different awards. Awards were given from FAO, the Swedish Sea Food Award and Aquaculture Association of Southern Africa.

Golam Kibria was born in Wari in 1968. The ancestral home is in Sandwip, Chittagong. He was studied in Comilla Cadet College and Barisal Cadet College. His father, Mohammad Golam Maula was a professor. He has been working outside the country for nearly 15 years.

Dr. Shuvo Roy, a Bangladeshi born American, led a team of 40 researchers in the United states which invents the world’s first implantable artificial kidney

As we learn from Wikipedia, Chronic kidney disease (CKD), also known as chronic renal disease (CRD), is a progressive loss in renal function over a period of months or years. Chronic kidney disease globally resulted in 735,000 deaths in 2010 up from 400,000 deaths in 1990.

This is the information we have in our hand for chronic kidney disease. The above statistics along with the following one in terms of the growing number of transplants is not pleasing one to read-out though.

Statistics by country, year and donor type

Country Year Cadaveric donor Living donor Total transplants
Canada 2000 724 388 1,112
France 2003 1,991 136 2,127
Italy 2003 1,489 135 1,624
Japan 2010 208 1276 1,484
Spain 2003 1,991 60 2,051
United Kingdom 2003 1,297 439 1,736
United states 2008 10,551 5,966 16,517

In this circumstance, the following pieces of information are worth referring as an article written by Gary Becker and Julio Elias on “Introducing Incentives in the market for Live and Cadaveric Organ Donations” estimated the price tag for human kidneys ($15,000); not at all a cheap figure within the reach of majority people globally.

In this situation world-wide, Dr. Shuvo Roy (Bengali: শুভ রায়), PhD, a bio engineer on the faculty of the UCSF School of Pharmacy and the technical director of The artificial kidney project, led a team of 40 researchers in nine laboratories in the United states which invents the world’s first implantable artificial kidney. After successful transplantation, this can be a potential alternative to dialysis and transplants for patients with end-stage kidney failure.

The device has shown such promise that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration selected it as one of three projects for a special fast-track approval process. Researchers hope it will be ready for a human trial in 2017.This is expected that an artificial kidney could be manufactured for $30,000 or less. Testing in animals could begin by about 2016, but it would probably be 2020 or later before the device, if proved effective, could be one to use in regular transplantation.

The artificial kidney device will cost about $20 million to develop and take it through its first clinical trial, though the team has grants and gifts of about $7 million.

The implantable device will mimic the filtration functions of a kidney as well as its ability to maintain water and salt balances, produce Vitamin D and regulate blood pressure and pH. The bio-compatible device will attach to the circulatory system and remove toxins to the bladder as waste. The device will allow patients to live untethered from dialysis machines and eat and drink more normally. Most interestingly, the device can be powered by the human body’s circulatory system.

The man behind all of these, Mr. Shuvo, was born on 10th November 1969 at Rosangiri (Bengali: রোসাংগিরি) in Fotikchori sub-district (Bengali: ফটিকছড়ি উপজেলা) in Chittagong district (Bengali: চট্টগ্রাম) of Bangladesh though some Indian media mistaken and later realized him as the citizen of India.

Mr. Shuvo is the son of Dr Ashok Nath Roy (Bengali: অশোক নাথ রায়) and Mrs. Ratna Roy (Bengali: রত্না রায়). His father is a man from Rosangiri in Fotikchori sub-district and his mother Mrs. Ratna Roy is from Alkoron of Chittagong metropolitan city.  His grandfather, Mr. Nogen Dey, was a professor of English in Sir Kanungopara Ashutosh college of Boyalkhali. He has one younger brother, Joy roy, a vascular surgeon and sister Choity roy, a anesthetic; both of them are residing in USA. His wife, Monica mathuse (Bengali: মনিকা ম্যাথুস) is an US citizen.

In his early life, Mr. Shuvo was admitted to a nursery school of Siddeshari at the age of just 5 years. But they had to go to Uganda for his father’s profession as doctor in 1974. He had completed his secondary certification from Jinja senior secondary school in Uganda. He had gone to USA and completed his under graduation from Mount union college of Oliyons. He had achieved lots of awards and honor in his life. Here is a growing list of his awards, honors, career, awarded grants, and publications thanks to www.ucsf.edu .
