Will do. If you have any other pictures you'd like me to include, send them my way. I did nab the ones you've posted here.

Do you want this to be you scrapbook profile? I might have to edit it down a bit or there will be no room for pictures.

হিন্দি ক্লাস মিস করেছ? তুমি দুষ্ট ছাত্রি! আমি এই ফিল্মটা দেখতে চেলাম কিন্তু আমি খুবি অসুস্ত চিলাম। মনে হয় একদিন দেখতে পাব।

If you close it and the program you are typing in, and re-open everything, it should work fine.

আমি প্রফুলা রয়ের "আগুনের কাছাকাছে"। আমি প্রাফুলা রয়ের "মাঝি" পড়েছি ইংরেজিতে ও আমার ওই গ্লপটা ভাল লেগেছে। কেন বাংলায় type কর নি?

I think that both line by line reading and reading the whole story are helpful for different reasons. Going line by line lets you pay more attention to new vocab and grammatical structures. It is also an easier way to read for people who are not comfortable with the language. I resisted reading the whole story for basic comprehension for quite some time. I didn't trust myself to deduce meanings from context, and generally believed my vocabulary base to be too weak to get anything out of a story that way. BUT I eventually realized that it is necessary to take the plunge, go head first into a story, with limited or no use of the dictionary. Lately I've been trying to read ridiculously obtuse academic Bengali. Reading it entirely without the dictionary was impossible. However, often I would come across a word that I could guess at from context (mostly because the author was writing about a subject I am familiar with)or because I could tell that it was related to a word I already new. Even then it took all my willpower not to second guess myself and look the word up in the dictionary. After all, my inference could be wrong. But if I look up every word in the dictionary it takes hours to read a page. I'm still not fond of reading quickly for general comprehension. It is uncomfortable and a little unsettling. But I think that if I am ever going to be able to read Bengali in any useful way (i.e. not taking a week to read two pages of text) I need to practice it. And then go back through line by line, if not the whole text, then at least the more confusing bits with Mandiradi so she can correct my numerous mistakes.

you don't actually have to set it to Bengali. Setting it to Unicode UTF-8 should make it work.
