Hi. Welcome to my homepage!! Some random moves of minimal probability around the internet must have made you stumble on my puny website :). Well, even if you don't want to look at it, I am glad that you have at least hit my counter ... 950... 951... ... ... 999 ... and a 1000 !!! Thank you.... those numbers really mean something about my net presence! The next part is for those who don't wish to be thanked so soon.....

Let me introduce myself. My name is Jarir Muhammad Fadlullah, or Jarir for short, or 'Jerry' as some like to call me. I am from Dhaka, Bangladesh. But currently I am living at State College, Pennsylvania where I go to Penn State University for grad studies in Electrical Engineering. I am enrolled as a Ph.D. student and going through the process of obtaining candidacy. I have been here since August 2005.

Electrical Engineering, or more precisely Communications Engineering, is my primary area of career and research interest. Nevertheless, my interests reach beyond engineering. This site is mostly about those stuff...

Surf about and find out things about me and a lot more. I intend to keep this site simple and easy to browse. If you have any comments or suggestions, please mail me at the address given below, or alternatively if you would care to talk to me (not spam me!!!), you can add me to your MSN messenger. My MSN id is: Remember, no spamming.... please!!!

I hope you will enjoy your stay here. Thanks for dropping by....

  • 27 January, 2006 - 'Il risorgimento' -- italian for 'resurgence'. Well, it may not look exactly like that, but I have started cleaning old dirt accumulated over long period of inactivity, and trying to give a whole new feel to the site. Don't be surprised if you see pages incoherent in outlook, as I have started with the main page and slowly going deeper to edit almost everything! The links will continuing working as before, I hope...

  • The Epic of Gilgamesh. The oldest epic of human civilization. This epic ante-dates Homer and the Biblical writings. When they were discovered, the archaeologists were stunned by its mention of a Great Flood similar to the Biblical story (although I am referring to this as a Biblical story, it is included in Jewish, Christian and Islamic scriptures). It is evident that the Biblical writers drew from this ancient Sumerian epic and probably from many other such sources. READ IT HERE!

  • Some articles written by yours truly on the Egyptian civilization (not yet uploaded). Primarily they were written in Bangla. I just translated them into English and abridged them a little. Trying to host the Bangla documents - but haven't come up with any solutions. Suggestions are welcome. Read some interesting facts about the Ancient Egyptian Civilization.

    The Nightingale and the Rose by Oscar Wilde
    The Selfish Giant by Oscar Wilde.
