Hard to squeeze in an accurate description for such a complex thing as human personality! Let's see, where to begin? How about I start with a joke? Question: Why was King Tut confused as a boy? Answer: Because his daddy was really a mummy. Okay, now that you know my goofy side, on to the more serious stuff. A sense of humor, sincerity, and commitment are probably my stronger points. I am intensely loyal and find joy in caring for my loved ones. I enjoy a good conversation on just about any topic, and my spare time is spent with books, music, movies, friends, and dreaming up of incredible ideas. I appear to be more on the creative side, and have a penchant for connecting the dots of the seemingly disparate. Presently, I am reading "Happiness Hypothesis" by Jonathan Haidt, "What the dog saw" by Malcolm Gladwell, and "Ash Shifa: Messenger of God" by Qadi Iyaad. I connect well with those who live transparently. I have two primary cultural influences -- American and Bangladeshi. A former DJ with a degree in computer music, I listen to a lot of music, be it the trance of Armin van Buuren, the pop of Habib, or the serenades of Brahms. I enjoy movies, and watch a lot of them. Stephen Colbert, Jon Stewart, and Bill Mahr are often heard dispensing their wisdom through my home television. I like all kinds of food, although I think the good people of Thailand truly make magic in their kitchens! Looking back, I can't believe I've spent the first 18 years of my life eating bhat and daal every day! I have the mind of an engineer and the heart of a designer, and I've used this combination to build products like iPod, iTunes, and yahoo.com. Both my parents were in public service, and I I've inherited an appreciation for community service from them. Today, I work in international corporate development, and often travel throughout Europe, Asia, and North America. My favorite places in the world are Amsterdam, Istanbul, London, Madrid, Medinah, New York, and, of course, my city of birth, Dhaka. I find much of Europe absolutely stunning. I have an innate love of learning across all the dimensions of Knowledge. I suppose it could be considered my own way of drawing nearer to that ineffable and mysterious, majestic but beautiful force that is God. I respect and harbor religious values, though admittedly my daily prayers need polishing. I wish I could rescue terms like "Islam" and "Muslim" from their current PR disasters. On the personal side, I haven't had spectacular success with marriage, unfortunately. Bridging the gaps of a cross-cultural relationship has proven impossible, but I do believe the experiences have made me grow and have introduced me to myself for the first time. And, of course, I have an amazing, really smart little boy resulting from it whose treasured presence in my life reminds me that not all terminated relationships are carte blanche regrettable. Who am I looking for? If I could put an ad in a newspaper describing her, here's how it would read: "Wanted: A good human being with a good heart. Someone with a healthy balance of this and other worldly aspirations. You are a person with strong values, deep integrity, and keen intellect. You have a strong mind but a soft heart. You are confident yet flexible, comfortable at home all the while unafraid of the vast world with all its diversity. You have a beautiful soul and a gorgeous smile. Like me, you've made choices in life that have taken their toll, but which have taught you valuable lessons, increased your awareness of the person within you, and made you better in the process. You are searching for a real friend, an imperfect complement to your life who always has your back no matter what, and who aligns well with what is most important to you. You actually know what those things are, and have embarked on the journey to find someone to share them with." Is this you?
