About Palash Ranjan
What to write in my CV?
TO tell you the truth, the amount of things I done, makes me the perfect match, when people says, "Jack of all trades and master of none."
My experiences include teaching at three different levels-school, college and university, editing in newspaper and for a publishing house, research work for different local and international organizations in the field of politics, economics, engineering, water modelling, energy, transportation. I coordinated research work at CRI, Bangladesh. Now, I hold the position of programme Associate at Center for Policy Dialogue-reputed think tank of Bangladesh.

An idea worth spreading
Cut spending, do not go after more money. We, the Bangladeshis most of the time do not understand how much we wasting, in terms of money and time. try to decrease that. Life will be easy. Do not blame the government or anyone else for your misfortune or bad results. Think If you did what it means to be an active citizen. And also you are not the only one trying to work alone, so do not lose hope if you know you are doing something great.
I'm passionate about
bicycle,green building and sustainable energy. Crazy about cycles and trying to make a local bicycle using local renewable stuff. and trying to understand the scope opportunity of green building.
Talk to me about
Anything. politics, history, economics anything. I am a great fan of learning and working.I may not know everything but doesn't mean I can't hear and learn.
People don't know I'm good at
fixing stuffs. I can fix mobile phones, computers, bicycles, plumbing equipments(:D) and many more. most cases I don't charge cause it's like a game to me. I like fixing things.
My TED story
The story changes with time...
Because I look back at how I started becoming a part of TED and I find new positive aspects of it. I believe my story can become a TEDTalk itself. Maybe when I become 60 or 65. But, I one line will remain same in that storyÃ¢â‚¬â€TED has changed my life and my way of thinking, Thank you TED.
