About Dr Samir (M S Hossain)

Mohammad Samir Hossain in Wikipedia


Mohammad Samir Hossain was born on November 28 in 1976 at Dhaka in Bangladesh. He is the youngest of the sons and daughter of his parents, Md Manjur Hossain and Rezia Begum. Hossain claims, if his parents were not like that they were, he could never become what he wanted to be. So he considers his parents as the biggest blessings from Almighty Lord.

Samir Hossain studied in Ideal High School from class-I to class-X and Notre dame College and Dhaka College for the XI and XII classes. Surprisingly, in 1987 he wrote about Relativity in a school wall magazine without knowing past of this famous topic; but immediately after it Hossain learnt about Einstein’s theory, read the history and became a lifetime fan of Quantum Physics. During these days he had an ambition of being a Philosopher in his future life.  He studied in Ideal High School of Dhaka from 1981 to 1991 and in Dhaka College for  the next two years. He got admitted in Sir Salimullah Medical College and completed his Medical double bachelor degree, MBBS, in the year 2000. Concurrently, he was working with Dr Sanderson Beck from California for Distance Education in Abnormal Psychology, hence later was awarded with an MS in Abnormal Psychology. He also completed an online diploma in Basic Modern Psychology while he was an internee doctor at Mitford Hospital. Later he joined the Department of Psychiatry at the same place for special training in the subject.

Being a member of a typical middle class family of Bangladesh, Hossain could not go for traditional post graduation degrees as his father handed over the family responsibility after the retirement in 2000. Therefore, he decided to work while learning by distance/online education sitting at home. Nevertheless,  later he was much criticized inside his country by his friends and foes just because he never traveled physically to those countries that are tagged with his educational record. But the good thing was, starting from his MBBS, through the Diploma and MS and up to his PhD in Psychotherapy and twelve small courses under Harvard Medical School and some from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine — all were completely free of cost, in other words with full scholarships. As it was all Distance Learning except for the MBBS, he never could sell his education inside his country. Nevertheless, he decided to fulfill his major dream, therefore, started his abstract research on death. For better understanding of the topic he completed PHIL 176: Death under Yale University. Meanwhile, his elder son Mohammad Seeyam Samir died in 2004 and gave him a huge lesson on “Death” practically. He modulated his research towards supportive attitude for average people and postulated “Death and Adjustment Hypotheses” in 2005, the year that was blessed by his second son Mohammad Raiyan Samir’s birth. In 2007 and 2008 he published two theory books on his theory from USA. The first book “Quest for a New Death” became a reference one at the University of Memphis and the Second one “Human Immortality” became a recommended theory book of Philosophy in UK. After his theory was published by the Royal College of Psychiatrists at London’s Spirituality Special interest group and US journals on death, he and his theory began to be discussed in others’ works. Now he is considered to be one of the few theorists in Scientific Thanatology besides Sigmund Freud, Earnest Becker etc. His second book was also published as one Bangladesh Edition, which was funded by a Palliatice Care society in Dhaka and distributed by Parash Publishers of Dhaka New Market.

In his very early medical life Hossain became members of  the American Psychological Association, American Psychiatric Association, American Foundation for Suicide Prevention etc. But after that Dr Hossain turned out to be a very unsuccessful person in his job life. He was a Registrar of Psychiatry in 2003 at Z H Sikder Medical College. Later that year he joined his current institution Medical College for Women and Hospital in Dhaka as Registrar of the same subject and finally became an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry in 2004. After the serving the institution as an Assistant Professor for about four and half years, he was given the post of Registrar again in 15th September, 2008. He was informed that his qualification was not good enough to remain an Assistant Professor. But Dr Hossain himself adds that disappointment of one of the senior Physicians from among the rulers of the college regarding his independent research activities influenced this disaster. In any case, this blow of demotion was something bigger than his elder son’s death.

Till now Hossain works as a Registrar of the same institution. He is also an Honorary External Faculty of Palliative Care Service at BSMMU, Dhaka. Hossain received several awards in his educational and professional lives, but they are not significant enough to mention here.

In his personal life Hossain is a Muslim and happily married to Dr Tahmina Rahman Chowdhury (Teena) and fathers his younger son Mohammad Raiyan Samir. Hossain adds, Mohammad Seeyam Samir, his elder son, was one of the biggest gifts that he got in his entire life.

Among many, Hossain’s most important current project is a text book of Death (Thanatology), which he intends to write both in his mother tongue Bangla and second language English.

    I think that everything said was actually very logical.
    However, consider this, suppose you were to create a killer post title?

    I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your website, but what if you added
    a post title that grabbed people’s attention? I mean Dr Mohammad Samir Hossain | Scientific Thanatology/ Spiritual Psychiatry/ Psychotherapy is a little vanilla.
    You might peek at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create post headlines
    to get viewers interested. You might add a video or a related picture or two to
    get people excited about what you’ve got to say.
    In my opinion, it might make your posts a little

    Look at my homepage Tenisha – Hilton,
