People at Church knew,
that I am the ultimate Judge,
that I am destined to rule over the World,
that I am destined to fill the World with Peace & Justice.
But no one knew how it was going to happen!
Now, as events are unfolding, everyone can see the process “In action”!
I wrote, I can’t limit myself to a single Corporation or even several Corporations.
Now, people will understand why.
If I limit myself to a single Corporation, all the Corporations of the World would go bankrupt within a few years – even those that have a valuation of $200 Billion or $300 Billion.
So I have to assist all the Corporations of the World, besides building my own.
Even if all of the Millions of the best and brightest Scientists & Engineers of the World work together in a single Company and work on a specific Project / Product (e.g., an advanced Artificial Intelligence Platform or a Smart Home Gadget) – those Millions of Scientists & Engineers still won’t be able to match what I can single-handedly invent / discover.
It’s not just Immigration Reform and Healthcare Reform,
I have many other avenues for influencing the development of United States:
Tourism is a Service.
And, as is the case in development of any Product or Service, the Developer has to think from the perspective of the Customer.
What would Customers (Tourists) look for when making the choice of selecting Bangladesh as the Tourist Destination?
Customers would look for distinguishing features in tourist spots of Bangladesh.
What is it that we have in Bangladesh which no other country can offer its tourists?
Bangladesh has the largest mangrove forest in the World – the Sundarbans.
Bangladesh has the longest Beach in the World – The Cox’s Bazaar Sea Beach.
Find out more distinguishing features.
Highlight those features.
Why would people tour places if they can’t view and enjoy scenes?
Build high View Points from which people can enjoy scenes.
When customers make travel choices, they choose among “Travel Packages” offered by different countries and companies.
Introduce new and attractive “Travel Packages”.
That’s the role of the Private Sector – designing attractive “Travel Packages” by working with Airliners, Hotel Managers, Transportation Agencies.
Bangladeshi Tourism Industry Firms can introduce “Joint Travel Packages” with neighboring countries – India, Nepal, Bhutan, Sri Lanka and Maldives – so that whoever visits any of these countries also visits Bangladesh.
What role can the Government play to support the Tourism Industry?
The Government can make it easy for foreigners around the World to get Visa for visiting Bangladesh.
Bangladeshi Embassies can actively promote tourism and assist foreigners looking for Visas.
Security is vital. Government has to ensure Security employing full capability of all the Law Enforcement Agencies.
Infrastructure Development falls into the responsibility of the Government.
The Traffic situation in Dhaka is one area that calls for urgent attention. Roads and Highways have to be broadened. Airports have to be modernized.
How do we Market Bangladesh as an attractive Tourist Destination?
Again: think from the perspective of the Customer.
What do you think would convince people to choose Bangladesh as their Tourist destination?
Those of us currently residing abroad can promote and market Bangladesh as a tourist destination directly to our friends and acquaintances.
Those living in the country can utilize Blogs, Youtube and Social Media to promote “Beautiful Bangladesh”.
I know, many look forward to visiting my country! So each of us can play our part in the process.
Let’s work together and turn “Beautiful Bangladesh” into one of the most attractive tourist destinations of the World!
“Beautiful Bangladesh” – “রূপসী বাংলা” [Youtube Playlist]
Welcome to Euro, Lithunia!
“Once skeptical of the euro, Lithuanians are now ready to embrace it.
The former Soviet republic will become the 19th member of the common currency on Thursday—underlining its Western ties just as it has also emerged as one of Europe’s loudest critics of Russia.
In June 2013, only 41% of Lithuanians approved of dropping the country’s currency, the litas, according to a survey by pollster Eurobarometer. The latest poll, published in mid-December, shows that backing for the euro has risen to 63%.
Lithuania joined the European Union and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization in 2004, at the same time as neighboring Latvia and Estonia, and it is following both countries in switching to the euro.”
America finishes strong in 2014!
More good news to follow in 2015!
“Home prices in 20 U.S. cities rose at a slower pace in the year ended in October, putting the market on better footing heading into 2015.
smaller increases will help put ownership within reach of more Americans as the job market improves and wage gains accelerate”

“From Brazil to Thailand, Firms That Sold Bonds in Dollars Now Face Steep, Even Staggering Costs”
“Some Employers Say Influx Has Helped Bottom Line”
“Health and Human Services Says About 2 Million Were First-Time Sign-Ups on HealthCare.gov
More than four million people signed up for the first time for health coverage in state and federal marketplaces under the Affordable Care Act or actively re-enrolled for coverage in 2015 during the first month, according to a 50-state look at the law’s second enrollment season.
More than 3.4 million people selected a plan in the 37 states using the HealthCare.gov marketplace. Of the 3.4 million plan selections, about two million were first-time sign-ups on HealthCare.gov in the first month.
The report is preliminary and based on the first month of open enrollment, which began Nov. 15. It includes data through Dec. 15.”
Now that more people have Healthcare Insurance and can get Healthcare at an affordable cost,
Next in my agenda:

In general, the state of Science & Technology in Iran is Developed.
In fact, if you leave out Israel, the state of Science & Technology in Iran is the most advanced in the Middle East, South Asia & South East Asia Region.
But research is mostly limited to the Public Sector – Universities & Government Facilities.
Apart from Medical Research – that can be easily translated into Medical or Surgical Practices – very little Research is translated to the Private Sector (generating Economic benefits / Wealth).
Pharmaceutical / Biotechnology Industry is exemplary in Translational Research.
Biochemical Research, Nanotechnology Research, Medical Research, Nuclear Research (which must be limited to Nuclear Power Plants and not as another threat to the World), Aerospace Research, Robotics, Microprocessor Manufacturing, Super-Computers
– Iranians are doing advanced research, but only in the Public Sector.
What seem most promising –
To become an Economic Powerhouse, Iran needs High Technology Companies – which – its state of research indicates – it is capable of – although yet to materialize.
I am willing to provide guidance for:
Development of High Tech Industries in Iran.
If Iran is only the 9th country to put domestic-built Satellite into Orbit [Public Sector], why can’t an Iranian Firm build a Commercial Aircraft [Private Sector]?
Different body of Expertise (& Outlook), Institutional Structures & Policies are required for
Development of Research & Engineering Based High Tech Industries [Translational Research – turning research into Market Products] :
Israel is a very good example of a country that has mastered the art of turning “Research” into “High Tech Industries”.
Iran can, and should learn from Israel.
Here is a nice book to start with:
I, myself, is very excited about winning Prizes, Awards, Honors! But what excites me equally is putting my knowledge of Sciences to practice.
Here are a few of my Articles:
Japan & South Korea
“Japan and South Korea on Monday pledged for the first time to share military intelligence about North Korean weapons programs, in a three-way pact with the United States that Washington hopes will improve cooperation between its mutually estranged Asian allies.
Defense analysts called the agreement a small but symbolic breakthrough because it brought together Japan and South Korea, two prosperous democracies that have been divided by disputes over history and territory.
Under the pact, the sharing of classified information will be limited to North Korea’s missile and nuclear weapons programs. In addition, Japan and South Korea will share that intelligence not directly, but via the United States.”
