Malik Ahmed:

I used to  work in a Mineral lab. named “ALS” in North Van. as  a Lab. Analyst. Being laid off in 2009 due to global economic recession, I started working in Save on Foods. 

I am a BCIT grad with a Diploma in Chemical Science.

“In 1987-’88, I studied in Bergen University, Norway (completed half of a Masters program, 30 credit) and got a Post graduate diploma in Fisheries Biology.

1978-85, I studied in Bangladesh Agricultural University for my Bachelors degree (with honors) in Fisheries Science & Masters in Aquaculture and Management.

I started writing poems in 2013. In my early life, I used to like music, used to play guitar, mouth organ. I have  a weakness towards pencil sketches.

TO WORLD LEADERS

Talk about Justice

Not the Power,

Address the complicated world politics,

Destroy missiles, nuclear weapons,

 

Be a mature leader,

Avoid the danger of another world war! 

 

Stop fighting, stop genocide,

Killing, raping and stealing here and there,

 

Don’t be greedy,

Don’t destroy any tribe or country,

Don’t let humanity cry!

 

Don’t cross your limit,

Don’t, yourself, be a problem,

 

Be a problem solver!

Honour other people,

Their faith, feelings and colours,

 

Try bringing peace on earth!
