Bhasha: The Glasgow Language Festival

The word ‘BHASHA’ (ভাষা) translates to Language in Bangla. The festival is inspired by the legacy of 21st February, the ‘ভাষা শহীদ িদবস’ (Bhasha Shôhid Dibôs) or the Language Martyrs Day of Bangladesh. Back in 1952, in the then East Pakistan, people made the ultimate sacrifice for the right to speak in their mother tongue. 47 years later in November 1999, 21st February was proclaimed as the International Mother Language Day by the UNESCO (UNESCO 30C/62) which has been celebrated throughout the world since.

In the USA it began and ended with terror, UK got hammered by storm Ophelia, humanitarian crisis of the Rohingya’s continue to cause outrage throughout the world and finally misbehaving celebrities seem to have opened a floodgate of sordid stories and accusations.

BAG PRESIDENT BLOG (week of 9 th September 2017)

Living in an age/era of narcissism I find it a constant battle to get the ‘me’ out of equation. Bangladesh Flood Emergency Relief and Rehabilitation (BFERR) has given me a golden opportunity to do that. Personally, I used to feel having a BLOG is another way of expressing your innate narcissism. But I’ve changed my view. I think it can be a useful tool for communication. So here I go!
