During the training period at NIO, I participated in the-Dynamics of the Indian Ocean : Perspective and Retrospective, an international symposium on the Indian Ocean, organized by NIO, Goa, India last month. That was the greatest time in my life till now. I met a variety of group of scientists all over the world during that period."

To begin with, I would like to draw your kind attention regarding my current position and experiences at National Institute of Oceanography (NIO), Goa, India. At this moment, I am Md. Masud-Ul-Alam, an MS thesis student of Department of Oceanography, University of Dhaka, Bangladesh. My ongoing master’s dissertation is related to the combination of oceanic physical processes such as meso-scales variability, eddy and biological phenomena such as productivity as well as plankton distribution which coherently control the Fisheries and Biological Resources in the northern Bay of Bengal. In my student life, I have got several scholarships like Internship and training scholarship 2015 from the Embassy of France in Bangladesh and NIO, India, IFIC Bank Research Scholarship 2015 in Bangladesh. During the training period at NIO, I participated in the "Dynamics of the Indian Ocean : Perspective and Retrospective", an international symposium on the Indian Ocean, organized by NIO, Goa, India last month. That was the greatest time in my life till now. I met a variety of group of scientists all over the world during that period.

Shortly, I love to say that this training period, that I completed last month, was one of the best parts of my life. The whole time was full of a lot of memories with the seniors at NIO, my guide, my classmates and most of the researchers of NIO. In fact, the working condition was so impressive that I couldn’t imagine before. Everybody at NIO is very helpful. My supervisor is Dr. S. Prasanna Kumar. He had taken a great care of me. He managed smoothly not only my research but also other facilities. I will be always grateful to him. In addition, I met another French scientist called Mathieu
(sorry for giving surname only) there. He is a great person. I like him basically for his casualty and seriousness in research as well.

The local people are very cordial and helpful. Traditionally, they are mostly Portuguese and Indian. The main city, Panaji (locally called Panjim), is very small but well decorated and planned. There is no traffic jam like Dhaka. In reality, the beauty of Goa is mainly for her beaches and the nice roads. I believe that driving on the Goan roads is one of the main sources of enjoyment. I saw my first casino in the ’Mandovi River’ by the road-side of Panaji. The foods were pleasant to me. I really enjoyed the ’Fish Thalli’ (big plate equipped with different types of marine fishes). I love the Kingfish and its Rawa Fry. All the beaches are so beautiful in Goa. The Terekhol, Arambol, Calangute, Condolim etc. are the main beaches of the north Goa.

I visited many historical places there like the Raj Bhaban, many church of Old Goa.
However, the ambition of my career is to build up myself with the innovative methodologies and techniques in observational oceanography, marine resource management and marine biodiversity conservation and utilize them for the development of the economy of Bangladesh as well as for the globe. I think this training has lessen the distance giving the knowledge to reach my goal. The visit will remain ever fresh in my memory.
