Sabethville is located in a small town named Comilla. I grew up here. My Mom, my siblings and I spent a long time here. It is a quiet and peaceful town where the schools and colleges are not too far from our home.
Sabethville is named after my Dad, Abdus Sabeth. He died when I was twelve years old. This is my way of remembering my Dad.
Hello friends I am Ranu. I am a Bengali. I spent my early childhood away from my country Bangladesh.
My father’s job took him to a variety of cities. We were fortunate,we were exposed to these cities and also learned their language.
I was in sixth standard when my Dad passed away. The school was run by Irish nuns,who did believe the saying,”spare the rod spoil the child.”
After my Dad’s passing, my Mom wanted to move to Bangladesh. The first year we moved we stayed in my maternal Grandpa’s village. Then To Comilla.
I was lucky I was able to carry on my education. I successfully completed my Bachelor’s degree from Dhaka University.I completed my Master’s degree from the same university.
I got a scholarship to study B.Ed. from the university of Punjab,in Lahore,Pakistan. I was able to fulfill my dream of studying in London University, England. I received a diploma in”Teaching English As A Foreign Language.”
After my marriage I moved to Montreal Canada. A year later to Gander,Newfoundland. I taught in an elementary school for a while. I moved again with my family to the capital of Newfoundland.
I think this is it.I have no intention of moving anymore.
I’ve been reading about Comilla, and looking at pictures. It’s a very beautiful place.
It appears to be rich in multiple cultures. When I look, I see mosques and temples.
Has it changed greatly? Does it still remain quiet and peaceful?
All good wishes,
It has changed.There are more people now.People are moving to Comilla from the nearby villages to find work.
It is not as quiet as it used to be.It still is more peaceful than Dhaka.
I know it is the 12th of January, but I hope it is not too late to wish you a wonderful New Year. May 2013 bring you more happiness, love, and success. I would like to thank you because you continue following my blog. I hope my short stories and poems do not disappoint and that your visits in there have been a joyful ride. Thank you again, many blessings and much love to you, Ranu.. 🙂
First of all ,a very happy new year to you too,Zein.It is not too late.
Thank you.All my best wishes for you.May this ‘New Year’ bring you health
and happiness,dear friend.
Thank you, Ranu, blessings to you.. 🙂

Not on a billboard but from your Hotmail address.
Haha…now I see!
Thank you. I was kidding by the way about the billboard thing 🙂
Really,I thought you are one of those famous people running to be re-elected and was frantically vying for votes.
I’m joking of course!
Hahaha…maybe I am, maybe I was just checking out how famous I am ! 😀
Did you find out?
Sadly, yes ! 😐
My finding is that; I’m not as famous as I thought I were ! 😛
There is always a price for fame.But you’re aware it I know.
Yeah I know, I’m kidding. I don’t want fame. I’m happy as I am ! 🙂
Can you please help me with something?
How may I help you,dear friend?
I’m having a hard time understanding how my E-mail is public as I never made it so. Can you please tell me where was my E-mail address visible?
I saw it after I approved your comment.It wasn’t visible before.
You saw it where? I mean when you approved my comment where did my email appear?
On my left.

Oh thank you very much for the award.
thank you for sharing, it’s great to get to know who you are and where you are from. you must have been an exemplary student to gain the scholarship! hard work i’m sure!
Thank you I am glad to meet you.
I am happy to know you.
Thanks for visiting me and commenting–I look forward to getting to know you. (Canada is very different from Bangladesh, eh?)
It certainly is.I’d like to know you as well.
I live in Manitoba where we have six months of winter. This has been one of the worst ever. I begin gardening in the middle of May and am done by end of September. You mention it is too cold to garden where you live. Just wondering what makes you think you live in a too cold climate to garden?
It is St. John’s newfoundland.
I don’t think I realized you were in Canada, Ranu. Maybe we’ll visit you someday in St. John’s. Do you have any plans to visit PEI?
Do you live in PEI? Sure we’d love to see you in our windy city,it’s an interesting one.
I’m sure you’d love it.
It’ll be awesome if you visit ST. John’s.

Pingback: The Versatile Blogger Award | The Bohemian Rock Star's "Untitled Project"
I love the quality of your blog, each post inspires and informs. I have nominated you for the Beautiful Blogger award
Congratulations and my best regards!
(of course do not worry if you do not wish to accept!)
Thank you Lita, I want to accept but finding ten or fifteen bloggers is a problem for me. If this number can be lowered
to five I’d gladly accept.
Thank you so much for the nomination.
I think it is OK to nominate less than the specified amount, I think the number given is a maximum. Wishing you a super weekend.
All my good regards
Another week-end is upon us since you nominated me, I was so busy trying to write and read other peoples posts, I
did not have a chance to nominate anyone or thank you for nominating me. If I am too late to do any of those things I sincerely
thank you for thinking of me and consider me worthy of your nomination. Maybe next time I’ll take care of my obligations
before anything else,please forgive me this time.
All is good! Have a great weekend Ranu. Sun is shining here as I hope it is with you. Lita
Thank you Lita, we are having snow flurries here,it’s not that bad.
Ah enjoy the snow. We missed out on it at the bottom of England this year!
We only had a bit,now it has melted,no trace is left.
I love the way snow slowly disappears! So gradual.
I too love watching the snow disappear,this winter we had more than we could handle.
I guess that’s the other side of the coin. Not so delightful when it holds up your day!
Yes you are right.
It must be a wordpress fluke but I cant get in to see your recent work the page is blank 😦
I don’t know why the page is blank,Leslie.
