For the love of football (soccer)





Our School Team With The Championship Trophy






My number 13 is not unlucky for me





The Interschool Champion Team


Yesterday (29th September 2012), our school team became champion of the Interschool Football (Soccer) Tournament, beating Aga Khan School in the final. I am one of the proud members of our team and am very happy having won our school the first Senior Championship in four years. But, behind this happiness, there is bitterness, sorrow and dissatisfaction.

Our school has three football fields. However, the authority does not want us to play too much and does not allow us to play much. There are not many school tournaments to play in either. The school authority wants us to indulge our efforts in studies only and does not want us to play much. So, there is not much practice in school.

The sector in which my house is located, has become, like most of Dhaka, a concrete jungle. There is not a single playground in the entire sector. So, to play or practice properly, I had to go to a different sector, almost three miles away, where there is a field. However, during the day - from morning to evening, the ground is occupied by players from that sector or nearby areas.

So, I chalked out a plan. On Fridays, Saturdays and on other holidays, I, along with my friends from our sector and nearby areas, go to the ground very early in the morning (while it is still dark) and start practicing and playing to our hearts' content until at around 9 in the morning, players from that sector come and occupy the field.

Occasionally, my friends and I would play on the streets, just passing the ball around and playing the odd match of street football.

I organized a non-professional team Chapati FC, where my friends and I would play. I organized friendly matches and we played against other non-professional teams and sometimes participated in non-professional football tournaments.

Like me, the other players in our school team, practiced football outside of school, improving and building themselves with their own initiatives on their own merit, and brought our school fame.

Despite all these difficulties and limitations, we love football. I pray and hope that one day our school authority will realize that football and other sports are not less important than academics.

A bookworm, no matter how brilliant he is, may not always be as helpful to society as a healthy and fighting fit meritorious student can be. After all, the phrase goes "Survival of the fittest...."

  6. Unë kurrë nuk kam parë një mrekulli si kjo në tërë jetën time, kam kërkuar një zgjidhje për të mbetur shtatzënë për më shumë se 8 vjet pas martesës, kam provuar gjithçka të mundshme, por asgjë nuk funksionoi derisa pashë një provë në internet se si Dr Fady ndihmoi shumë gra të merrnin. shtatzënë me magjinë e saj të fuqishme, shkrova dhe shpjegova situatën time, më premtoi se do të më ndihmonte dhe do të mbetem shtatzënë para 1 muaji, bëra gjithçka që më urdhëroi dhe shkova në spital për një mesazh dhe mjeku më konfirmoi që jam 5 vjeç ditë shtatzënë, deri tani kam sjellë në jetë djalin tim të pashëm, burri im tani është i lumtur dhe më jep gjithçka që kërkoj, falë Dr. Fady kontaktoni nëse keni nevojë për ndihmë.
    * Nëse dëshironi të mbeteni shtatzënë.
    * Nëse doni të ktheni të dashurin tuaj.
    * Nëse dëshironi të ndaloni abortin.
    * Nëse doni fuqi shpirtërore.
    * Nëse dëshironi të bëheni të famshëm.
    * Nëse dëshironi të kuroni ndonjë sëmundje. Si HIV/AIDS

  8. Pas martesës jeta ime ishte kaq e vështirë, burri im filloi të ndiqte gra të tjera, sepse unë nuk i dhashë një fëmijë pasi prita disa vite. Mund ta shihja martesën time duke u zhdukur. Bëra gjithçka që ishte e mundur për të ndryshuar situatën, por asgjë nuk funksionoi derisa takova Dr DAWN, një shërues shpirtëror. Dr DAWN më shpëtoi jetën dhe martesën time. tani kam 3 femije. I jam mirënjohës Dr DAWN dhe për këtë arsye ia lë dëshminë time kujtdo që vuan nga problemet martesore dhe të fertilitetit. E-mail kontakti: dawnacuna314@gmail.com
