T(w)oo Low, America?

05/08/20

Hi,

Two songs heard by two friends on their first journey to America. The two of us went to same high school and higher secondary college in Dhaka. We were interviewed for visa on the same date. He went to mid-west and me to south-west.

He heard (me too) song America in Bangladesh. But I never before my journey, from Heathrow to JFK in British Airways, heard Elton’s song.

Once in America (traveled on different dates but same route and airlines) when I told one of my friends going to that MW university (also interviewed on the the same day, all coincidentally) that I was as if transfixed and heard the Too low song repeatedly almost the entire journey between Heathrow and JFK (and puzzled later why?), he told that our common friend had similar experience in BA but chose to listen to Neil’s song repeatedly for the cross Atlantic trip.

Both of us graduated and returned home.

Wondering was it just a coincidence? Why? Wasn’t twin towers demolished site was named ground zero? Probably worth recalling when a few years later I went with my friends to visit Manhattan for the first time during winter breaks we couldn’t visit the sky scraper WTC’s top floor due to dense cloud and fog. Instead we were taken to probably 20 – 30 stories (assigned for tourists during bad climate days) below.

Worth recalling. On my onward trip to New Orleans in Pan Am after 4 – 5 hours of transit in JFK my ears were almost close to be blown away when I could not ask for any help. It was just when the jet plane taxied and was at full throttle and about to take off!!

19 August 2020 Ex country treasurer of Citibank, NA. Not a full time blogger but a pragmatist and a true reflector of life and faith. I only write that is honest, humane, non-conflicting with Qur'an and sunnah. In order to uphold those principles, unfortunately, I sometimes have to write some stories involving my senior colleagues (responsible for creating the roadmap of twin towers terrorism). The blogs can in an independent reader's mind hit as a losers quid pro quo or a born again jihadist's new "al Queda" aka cia tricks. They think probably to mislead the west (or if I may add the far east including A/ NZ) by one who was thought to be one of them and widely have been proven and considered to be a "trusted friend". Since no one knows how gently and decently he tried to slip away from a very thankless, unimaginably powerful and equally heartless culture (almost like tom cruises Firm Hollywood blockbuster movie). Although the drama of exit interview etc were completed but secretļy they plotted against me. Only much later to understand that they had robbed me off my freedom and pretended to be very offended by my "deserter act" even with my 6 months notice resignation. Nevertheless my resignation was a bolt from the sky for the hot shot wall street bankers. Later it hit me that it was a way to save their faces but with a strange slave master attitude towards a fellow human who comes from an ancient civilisation than them with mashallah (since Allah wished) solid foundation of family (ancestry that is traceable to 250/300 years) and education that was sufficient to save the Name Problem, the most important asset of a financial institution. It was Citigroup (then Citibank NA) the biggest and best name among all mega money centre banks (at least from the outside, from inside we could understand the same but never made felt or for that matter never paid to the heights of its success and earnings). Back to education, in the hind sight glad not an ivy league graduate because these schools don't prepare humans, rather arrogant untouched with reality elitist monsters! My blogs are mashallah mandatorily and readily available testimonials on limits mentioned in the Quran and Hadids (seometimes violated for the sake of upholding decency by exposing nudity, indecency & pornos which are being made cheaply, widely and indiscreamenently available to all). Well let me elaborate a little more why I have mashallah taken up writing. Just start reading my blogs and soon inshallah (Allah willing) you will learn something u won't regret. You will understand what I am trying is to eradicate the ignorance - mostly imposed by the western govts to mislead us all. Why? In order to inflict prejudice and hatred in our minds. That creates opportunity for them to falsify the truth against Muslims and their religion Islam. They don't care for u because they are mostly some ill trained power loving, wisdomless, wreckless, irresponsible, evil worshiping bigots, power hungry liars. The 911 part of my life that I, from time to time, share as evidences with the public my unfortunate job related exposure to the modern times largest, most sophisticated, merciless, non muslim religious fundamentalists terrorists plots under the protection and sympathy of their governments. These two combinedly are the causes for the demolition of the twin towers in Manhattan, NY. After that many more major terrorists acts throughout the world. They generally use sorcery to set these terrorist acts in special venues, with underlying days/ dates and occasions so that apparently Muslims are doubted and blamed. Purpose is to create hatred against the last and only true religion left in the world, Islam. Inshallah, although censored under most evil ways used to design through complex, difficult, intimidating and hostile situations surrounding me, and sickness implanted in me, I will continue on with my efforts to share the evidences and expose the hypocrits and lying crook perpetrators till they are brought to justice. Truth inshallah will come out sooner rather than later and the unholy bizness of generally portraying muslims as terrorists will stop once and for all. Hope you all peace, prosperity and happiness. May Allah bless us all. My website: https://www.munirchowdhury.blog
