Moumita Khondaker, a Bangladeshi descent won the Miss New York Intercontinental 2015

What is Beauty? Let’s search the answer of this question through some quotes-
A Greek proverb says, ‘Beauty is in the eye of the beholder’. Exactly if there is no admirer, there is no beauty as well! Again in one of the quotes of John Ray echoes, ‘Beauty is power; a smile is its sword’. Here, a link is established between beauty and smile. Someone also tries to link the beauty with the almighty God. In one of the quotes of Gabriela Mistral, Desolacon says, ‘Beauty is the shadow of God on the universe’. This is different aspect of beauty. Another aspect of the beauty is its blind impacts. Mike Dolan says exactly, ‘Glamour is a shooting star, it catches your eye, but fades away and beauty is the sun always brilliant day after day’. Again John Keats says, ‘A thing of beauty is a joy forever: Its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness’. This is something different from others. Beauty has different dimension also. Gilbert Keith Chesterton says, ‘There is a road from the eye to the heart that does not go through the intellect’. But this really makes us think when Markus Zusak says, ’Sometimes people are beautiful. Not in looks. Not in what they say. Just in what they are…’. Indeed so!

Let’s continue with the beauty as there is a common belief that beauty never ruins. This is ever-green. So, people of different parts of the world still look for beauty. This is the reason for searching beauty worldwide everywhere through beauty contest or beauty pageant. This is the area where people of this part of the world got very little success (except few good exceptions of China and India). And for Bangladesh, this is the barren field where there are lots of opportunities to evolve in future!

Moumita Khondaker (Bengali: মৌমিতা খন্দকার), name of a very few exception for this part of the world from Bangladeshi descent communities who broke the barren field and won the Miss New York Intercontinental 2015 though there is lot more to achieve in coming days in this area. Through several rounds of competition, she had the final laugh while she defeated other contestants in winning the Miss New York Intercontinental. Later she participated in the Miss Intercontinental 2015 where she was one of the 51 contestants.

Moumita is the daughter of her father, Mahabub and mother Dina Khondoker. She had studied in Half Hollow Hills High School West and later in New York Institute of Technology. Now she is working as ‘Microbiology Supplemental instructor’ in New York Institute of Technology. She is fond of music from her childhood.

Eng. Habib Shaheen Tarafder, a Bangladeshi invented the driving direction of US in Bengali through GPS system

According to the top native speakers list in the 2007 edition of Nationalencyklopedin, the total number of native speakers of Bengali is 200 millions in 2007 and 205 millions in 2010. This constitutes the 3.05% of the world population (2007). The statistics also shows that Bengali (Bangla) is the 7th top languages spoken in the world*.

Bangla is the language which carries the emotion of the people of Bangladesh and a part of India (West Bengal, Assam, Tripura etc.). This is the language for which people sacrificed their lives in 1952. Even the language of that time drives the country toward independent Bangladesh. The sacrifice of language martyr’s is also acknowledged and recognized by the world humanity. As part of the recognition, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) announced first on 17 November 1999 and later it was formally recognized by the United Nations General Assembly in its resolution (section-24, page no.4) establishing 21st February as the ‘International Mother Language Day’**.

People of this part of the world feel proud when such news arrived in. One of the news is one of the inventions of Eng. Habib Shaheen Tarafder (Bengali: প্রকৌশলী হাবিব শাহীন তরফদার). The invention is significant as Bengali speaking drivers can listen the necessary direction in Bengali while driving in US through GPS (Global Positioning System) system.

As a result of his innovation, the expatriate Bangladeshi drivers can listen the driving instruction in standard Bengali voice, and in the accent of the voice of Sylhet, Chittagong, Noakhali, Barisal, Old Dhaka, Pabna. This can be downloaded from GPSbangla.com. Then it can be used at Garmin GPS.

This is noteworthy that GPS navigation system is the most acceptable and scientific way to solve the traffic problem in the United States and the other developed countries. Through the use of this technology, directions to determine the right path in a new city, fines for the violation of traffic laws, road accidents and even car theft can be prevented.

He belongs to the town of Jessore. He studied in Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology. Later he went to the Ohio State of United States of America to complete his graduation in engineering with scholarship.

Though he worked as a ‘Civil Engineer’ in Ohio and Illinois, but he was attracted to software engineering and changed his profession. Later he switched to ADP, one of the best human resources company in America, as a ‘Director’ in Business Intelligence department.

Lutfunnahar and Shaheen himself had given their voice in the standard Bengali direction in the GPS system invented. Actor Chanchal Chowdhury had given voice in the regional dialect of Pabna, expatriate artist Tajul Imam in the regional dialect of Sylhet and Actress Toru Mostofa in the regional dialect of Noyakhali.

Dr. Jamal Uddin, the inventor of world’s most efficient Solar Energy cells

People of Bangladesh residing worldwide bring money, fame and even contributes to the world economy and development through their innovation and discovery. Such a name of a Bangladeshi Bengali is expatriate scientist, Mr. Jamal Uddin (Bengali: ড. জামালউদ্দিন).

This invention is very crucial for the world, especially for Bangladesh. As we know, as per the data of Bangladesh Govt, 55.26% people of Bangladesh have electricity and most importantly, 42.49% people of rural areas in Bangladesh have electricity.* This shows that the huge deficit of electricity in Bangladesh. Most importantly, lack of electricity creates space for kerosene. Maximum people of the off-grid areas have to rely on using kerosene lamp at night due to unavailability of on-grid electricity.

One statistics shows that the typical expenditure on kerosene is around 1 to 2% of the monthly incomes of Bangladeshi households. With 94% of this kerosene being consumed for lighting, the resulting expenditure on kerosene for lighting is approximately USD 0.36 billion.** This is huge indeed, so as to say!

The work of Mr. Jamal Uddin is also huge! He invented the world most efficient solar cell which has 43.4% of the solar cell renewable energy production capacity. He made new world record in this case by using meta physics, Kasmol software and PC One-D. His invention will create more opportunities for solar technology even impact on the lives of the people of the third world country and developed country.

Dr. Jamal has completed his Honour’s and Masters degree in chemistry from the University of Dhaka. He obtained his PhD degree from the University of Osaka, Japan.

He is currently working as an ‘Associate Professor’ at Coppin State University in Baltimore, Maryland of United States of America. And he is the researcher in Coppin State’s Center for Nano-technology. He is the resident of Hajiganj of Chandpur district. He is the son of late Abdul Jalil and Begum Fazilatunnesa.

He received Wilson H. Elkins Professorship, second year in a row. He is the recipient of the 2014 Wilson H. Elkins Professorship Award. Founder and director of Coppin State’s Center for Nano-technology, Dr. Jamal Uddin plans to use the funds to continue supporting Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (S.T.E.M.) research, especially solar research. This is redundant to say that the Wilson H. Elkins Professorship Award is the highest honor that the Board of Regents’ bestows to recognize exemplary faculty achievement.

This is the story of another proud Bangladeshi Bengali. This is about M. Zahid Hasan (Bengali: জাহিদ হাসান) who led A group of researchers of Princeton University in the United States which discovered the elusive massless quasi particle, Weyl fermion, predicted 85 years earlier. This is the unique innovation. This innovation will bring revolution in producing electronics goods for the next generation. This particle has incredible capacity to move inside the matter and anti-matter through crystal. This is noteworthy that Physicist and mathematician Hermann Weyl predicted the existence of Weyl fermions in 1929.

Zahid Hasan alias Taposh is the eldest of two sons and one daughter of Advocate Mohammad Rahman Ali and wife Nadira Ali Talukdar. Zahid has passed Secondary (SSC) from Dhanmondi Government Boys’ High School in 1986 and higher secondary(HSC) from Dhaka College in 1988. He stood second in the combined merit list in SSC and first in HSC.

He later studied at the University of Texas in Austin, United States of America. He has worked with physicist Professor Steven Weinberg, who had shared the Nobel Prize with Professor Mohammad Abdus Salam in 1979. He started working on experimental based physics with his interest. He had completed his masters and doctorate at Stanford University. After completing his studies at Princeton University, he joined as a ‘lecturer’ there in 2002. He became a ‘full professor’ in 2011. He is currently a professor of physics at the university.

He has another identity as a writer. Zahid published his first book on science, Aesho Dhumketur Rajjae (Bengali: এসো ধুমকেতুর রাজ্যে) which can read as ‘come to the World of Comets: An Astrophysics Primer’ at the age of just 16 in 1986.

In his personal life, he got married with Sarah, MIT-educated engineer, who works for Microsoft. They have two adorable children: Arik Ibrahim Hasan (13) and Sarina Maryam Hasan (11).

Ayesha Arefin Tumpa, worked in a team which invented artificial lung

According to the Global Gender gap report 2015, Bangladesh ranks 64th out of 145 countries with a score of 0.704 (0.00 = inequality, 1.00=Equality)* . This is the statistics which say lot about the gender situation of a country like Bangladesh. But a girl of this country still can contribute if they get proper opportunities and support. Let it be in the field of science and technology or any other sectors. Though this county has very few female scientists, some of them are doing really a brilliant job in the field of science and technology.

Ayesha Arefin Tumpa (Bengali: আয়েশা আরেফিন টুম্পা), is the name of such Bangladeshi girl who proved this again with her invention, artificial human lungs. She has invented this using Nano-technology as a part of combined team. According to her, she is grateful to the researchers of different countries particularly Momo Vuyisich of Montenegro working in Los Alamos of United States of America.

An American researcher, Chris Detter of Alamos National Laboratory, had discovered promising geneticist Tumpa in one of his trip to Bangladesh for research related work in 2011. She got the opportunity of studying in Los Alamos National Laboratory for higher studies and research with the exclusive collaboration by Detter and his colleague, Lance Green. She had been doing her PHD in University of New Mexico on nano-science. At the same time, she had been continuing her research in Los Alamos National Laboratory.

Tumpa began her career in the bio-security section at Los Alamos National laboratory. Then, a renowned Indian researcher and toxicologist, Rashi Iyer had appointed Tumpa in the lab for optogenix related research work. This is noteworthy that optogenix is the study of manipulating genetics and engineering proteins to control neuron activity in living tissue ”for prosthetic limb and artificial tissue development.

As we know, Nanoparticles is used in different products starting from sunscreens to solar panels, are proliferating so quickly that safety testing for potential health hazards can hardly keep-up. Tumpa and other member of Iyer’™s team are developing methods to improve testing of toxins and diseases and support bioethics, including replacing prevalent animal-testing methods with trials in artificial organs.

The team is creating an artificial human lung to reveal the cellular mechanisms in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease,”the third most common cause of death in America and support development of therapeutics. Arefin also researches neurological diseases and strokes.

In the same time, Tumpa engaged in doing research on various neurological diseases and blood-dripping in brain. In her education life in Bangladesh, She had attended in Shahjalal University of Science and Technology (SUST), where she received her undergraduate degree in Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology. Anyone can judge her more by one of her saying, as it says, “My goal is not just to do cool things; my goal is to do something helpful for other people”

Durreen Shahnaz, the founder of world first Social Stock Exchange

When you come-up with an idea to change the things how it is, there is a great chance that someone surrounded by you will oppose you. The level of opposition will turn to the greatest, if the idea is something greatest!

Yes, Professor Durreen Shahnaz (Bengali: দূরীন শাহনাজ), a proud Bangladeshi woman who wanted to change the world with her very special idea, faced barriers to establish her idea into reality. Even her idea was rejected by many countries of the world. But with utmost try, She was able to establish her idea-the world first ‘Social Stock Exchange’, known as ‘Impact Investment Exchange (IIX) in Mauritius. There are two special characteristics of this-the first one is ‘Social Enterprise’ and the second one is ‘Impact Investing’.

As described in the Canberra Times (http://www.canberratimes.com.au), “Instead of making maximizing profit, social enterprises use business principles to pursue social and/or environmental missions while also generating a sufficiently robust bottom line to be sustainable, rather than relying on grants from philanthropists and other donors.

Through IIX’s social stock exchange known as Impact Exchange, investors across the world will be able to finance the growth of social enterprises by buying bonds (debt securities) and, within a few years, stocks. These securities will then be openly traded on IIX.”

Shahnaz has built the ecosystem and the IIX has been improving the lives all over Asia. It has converted power plants in Cambodia from diesel to biofuel; built water purification plants in India; provided vocational training in the Philippines; and across Asia the exchange has improved access to affordable housing, credit, clean energy, and low-cost education. Overall, the IIX has reached more than 10 million people — and she believes it has struck significant blows in the war on income inequality.

Her life was a challenging one. She had worked in Morgan Stanly in 1989. However, Morgan Stanly is one among the titans of Wall Street. At that time, very few women were employed in such strong financial institutions. She had founded IIX 5 years after her returning from Wall Street.

She worked as the the ‘chief’ of Asia regions of two renowned magazines-1. HUST Magazine International, 2. Reader’s Digest. This creative person founded another social organization, ‘Onenest’ which created an international market for handicrafts. She had launched a programme on social innovation in Lee Kuan Yu School of Public Policy. Moreover, she had worked in the World Bank loan section through which various services were provided to more than 100 countries.

This noble women, Shahnaz honored by Asia Society as she was recognized as the early member of our Asia 21 Young Leaders Network before and honored with Asia Game Changer Award for social-impact investing that changed the game for millions. She was also honored by one of her alma maters with the Joseph Wharton Award for Social Impact.

In her personal life, she had married to Robert Kraybill. Now she is working in Impact Investment Exchange Asia and National University of Singapore, Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy. In her education life, she had completed her MA
from Johns Hopkins University, BA from Smith College, MBA from University of Pennsylvania – The Wharton School of United States of America.

Ataul Karim, a Bangladeshi scientist, one among the best 100 scientists of the world, invented train which will not touch the line

The conventional idea of a train is that a train requires a line to touch to move forward. Dr. Ataul Karim (Bengali: ড. আতাউল করিম), a Bangladeshi origin scientist who stood in the list of the best 100 scientists of the world, invented train which will not touch the line. Train will run forward through magnets and reach to the destination within the blink of an eye. He is one of the world’s top 100 scientists.

Mr. Ataul Karim has been working in Dominion University at norophoke of Virginia adjacent to Washington DC as Vice President (Research) Washington DC.

However, the researchers of Old Dominion University had spent lot of money behind the research to invent this type of train past 7 years. But the real success came when Mr. Karim took the leadership of the research in 2004. Within just one and a half years, he was able to succeed in his research to invent the train which waits commercial launching.

China, Germany and Japan have discovered this type of train running over 150 miles per hour. But the average cost of the track of this train lines per mile is about $ 110 million. But the invention of Mr. Karim would cost only US$ 12 / 13 million. His design is pleasant. The main characteristic of the train is that it will not touch the line once after it is getting start.

Dr. Karim moved to United States (US) 30 years back with higher degree in Physics from the Dhaka University, Bangladesh. He had completed his MS in physics in 1978, and MS in Electrical engineering in 1979 and his PHD in 1981 in Electrical engineering from the University of Alabama. He is currently leading 5000 talented researchers-students of the World or US with his own talent and skill.

Dr. Karim is leading 6 college, at least 20 research centre, 600 faculties and more than 5000 graduate and under graduate students.

Mohammad Ashraful Alam, a Bangladeshi descent in the United States of America invented a new ‘Electric sensor’ that can detect the living and the dead cells of bacteria within few minutes conquering the current challenge of science to detect Bacteria in hours.

This is the success story of another Bangladeshi, Mohammad Ashraful Alam (Bengali: মুহাম্মদ আশরাফুল আলম) in United States of America who invented a new ‘Electric sensor’. With his invention, living and the dead cells of bacteria can be detected within few minutes. As a result, the diagnosis of diseases will be more accurate than earlier. And protection of different types of dishes will be ensured.

Mr. Ashraful Alam teaches in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of the University of Puradu. He had studied in Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology(BUET) in Bangladesh.

medicine. Usually it takes few hours to examine bacteria samples. So, this is quite difficult to detect the disease or starting the treatment of the patients. But the sensor he made with a PHD student, Aida Ebrahimi, would take few minutes to complete the whole process. The sensor can accurately detect the difference between living and dead bacteria cells.

The research paper of Ashraful Alam and Aida Ibrahim was published in the Journal, “Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences”. The study is important that the sensor can detect the difference between the dead and the living bacteria cells within a short time. This will help realizing how the bacteria die. The treatment of a bacteria infected patient can be started quickly now and effective drugs also can be given to cure the patient soon.
