关于KK / About KK
Khwaja M Khalid (KK)，来自孟加拉国，现在在西北工业大学攻读流体力学工程硕士学位。七年的西安生活让他感受到了家的温暖，也让他从内心深处把西安当作了自己的第二个家。虽然说KK已经不是第一次在西安过中国新年了，但是今年的新年却和以往不太一样。
Khwaja M Khalid (KK) from Bangladesh is doing a Master of Engineering in Fluid Mechanics at Northwestern Polytechnical University in Xi’an. After living in Xi’an for almost 7 years, he has felt warmth here and it has turned into a home for him. This year is a bit different from every Chinese New Year he spent in Xi’an.
Writing on international social media, purchasing medical materials such as surgical masks and protective clothing……KK is quite busy this vacation.
我要感谢我的大学为保护我们所做的一切。 我觉得这是对我们所有人的考验。 校领导很积极很负责。其次，我觉得这次疫情教会了我们耐心和关心他人。 我们必须一起战斗。 中国是我们的第二故乡，我们得对我们的家园和人民负责。 作为人类，我们所有人有义务有责任站在一起。 世界各国也都表现出了支持与友好的姿态，我感觉很好。
I would like to thank my university for whatever they are doing to protect us. I felt this is a test for all of us. The authority showed a full passion for responsibility towards us. Then, I felt this epidemic taught us patience and care for others. We have to fight it together. China is our second home and we are responsible for our home and people. And as human beings, it is a core responsibility for all of us to stand together. The countries of the world also showed a supportive and peaceful gesture. It has made me feel good.
绵薄之力/ Lower the panic
I try to write more about the epidemic to lower the panic among people. ——Khwaja M Khalid
Since I didn’t go anywhere since the outbreak happened, I have experienced it fully. It is like a long holiday resting at home. Mainly I am working on my research and thesis, watching movies, reading books, practicing some little photography on campus. I have also ordered some studio lights to learn the use of studio lights in my room. Besides, I have improved my cooking skills. I tried to write more about the epidemic on international social media to lower the panic among people. After the epidemic, I would like to share my experience more on international social media to show what steps should be taken in an epidemic.
An epidemic or a danger shows us a friend, gives us an opportunity to practice humanity. ——Khwaja M Khalid
Donations of the mask isn’t a job done by me alone. One of my friend Ovi also donated several hundred masks to the university when they have asked help. And there are many more who has done it. I had the plan to donate some 2000 masks. My friends helped me by lending money to pre-order the masks. When I was trying to arrange them, one of my junior at the university Shahed took the initiative to raise money from the NPU groups to collect some medical utilities such as sterilized isolation gown and surgical gloves from my country Bangladesh. We shared the idea and made a team. Special thanks to Shahed for taking the initiative to everyone. In that team (Shahed, Irfan, Luo, Partha, Anelya, Stay and me), every one helped to collect money and also supported us in groups. A lot of students, teachers and even students who are not NPU students came forward to help us.
我们筹到的钱足够从印度订购2100个医用口罩。最近找口罩并不是一件容易的事，最后帮我们很大忙，买到口罩的是西安交通大学的博士ABM Mohiuddin Chowdhury，他当时正和家人一起去印度旅游。他帮助我们在印度找到口罩而且邮寄了回来。特别感谢Khusnetdinova Agdaliya，Mahmood Shah Ovi，NH Anik Chowdhury和Asif Hasnat Monon。患难见真情，疫情让我们看清谁是真正的朋友。这就是我们所想说的，我们在一起，共渡难关。
We could place an order of 2100 surgical masks from India. Finding masks aren’t easy at all these days, but the person who helped us a lot to achieve the goal is Dr. ABM Mohiuddin Chowdhury, a Ph.D. fellow of Xi’an Jiaotong University, who was traveling to India with his family. His hard work and dedication helped us to find and post them from India. Special gratitude to Khusnetdinova Agdaliya, Mahmood Shah Ovi, NH Anik Chowdhury, and Asif Hasnat Monon. An epidemic or a danger shows us a friend, gives us an opportunity to practice humanity. That is all we had in our minds. We stand for each other.
