    Just five days to December 16. Do you know what day that is? It is our Victory Day, the day we officially won a terrible war and became Bangladesh!

    Its a day that we are proud of. This week, we meet a friend who sells little flags in December. Make sure you get

    one for yourself, and wear our red and green colours with pride.

    Write to us and let us know how you celebrated Victory Day this year! Send your drawings, poems, and stories to


    Hey friends,

    Solution: If the photos had been true the lighted windows in the background would not have been

    totally identical after a time span of 50 minutes. Also the moon would have changed position.

    This little kid in yellow stands for all the hope and pride we so desperately need to feel in our country. Surrounded by our national flags in all sizes possible, the child stares cross legged and wide eyed, making us feel that there is still much to be happy about. A carefree spirit, free to roam the streets and sell little pieces of national pride to people, what better way to earn a living than that?

    While it is easy to see that this angel does not have too many worldly perks, the innocence that shines on his face and the values he displays, of love, hope, patriotism and pride, is a wealth so priceless, we could all use some of it! mUniRa FiDai

    Buckle up readers because youre in for a ride. The PS VITA of the play station network has brought gaming to a new level with the release of Tearaway. A paper craft adventure where a fear-less messenger braves all obstacles to deliver a message to you- the player. You can select either a male (Iota) or a female (Atoi) to be the messenger.

    In this game you are a god-like figure residing in the sky, using god-like powers to assist the messenger in his/her journey. What truly makes this game special is its interactivity. You are

    able to lift an object by touching the backside of the console. You can also touch the screen to open presents or doors. You can record voices and take picture to progress. Awesome as it al-ready is, the game will capture your face with the help of the front camera and show it in objects like the Sun.

    Wow! This game is the bomb! So hur-ry up and grab your copy of this game and be amazed. This PS VITA exclusive game is available in particular game con-sole CD stores in Dhanmondi, Uttara, and Banani. syED azRaF zaman

    fLoat LikE a buttErfLyAfter a long hard day of school and studies, sometimes all you need, to pick yourself up, is a power song. In this case, classical girl power. Katy Perrys latest release in the series of power-ful singles, Roar is a fun,bubbly pop-track. Like most of her earlier songs, this one is also catchy with an easy chorus to sing along to. Perry sings about her inner strength and how she has been pushed around by others, but

    no more! The chorus says, Cause I am a champion and youre gonna hear me roar! This song makes you stand right up and face your fears. The video is in-teresting as well, as it shows Katy Perry and her friends texting the lyrics, as the day goes by.

    The single is available in the music stores in Dhaka, so go ahead. Listen to it, get that energy pumping and roar! RaD shaRaR
