Home is where the hearth is...

Even though I was born and raised in Dhaka, an urban jungle of almost 15 million people, and where traces of greenery is now almost non-existent, like all other Bengalis when asked where I am from, I identify myself as coming from a small village in northern Bangladesh – a place where my father was born and where we still own…

The reasoning being such practices were leading to high incidence of flies, which according to the Ministry of Health can cause and transmit disease. The KGB or what used to be the KGB is actively enforcing the decree strictly penalizing violators. Laudable or laughable, you decide.


Live animals in households are a common sight…

Future of Currency

The experiment that I believe will have the greatest impact on the future is the concept of Micro-Loans. The largest purveyor of these loans is Kiva.org.

All businesses need loans for various reasons. Some just to buy more products to sell. This allows many…See More
