Meaning of my name
Today I got an email from a sports journalist and chess fide master of Belgrade asking the meaning of my name Ashik. The word Ashik, derives from Arabic word Asheq (عاشق), and means the one who is in love. Zaman is derived from Zamana, an Urdu/Hindo word that means the age or time. So Ashik Uzzaman means one who is in love with his time. In other words, Ashik Uzzaman is the lover of the age. I live in information age, its my profession as well and I love it. So to me my name resembles that I am the lover of information age.
