Seven trashes collected by the senses.

– Friends of Bangladesh.

– Funny how everyone has forgotten about Teesta, Tipaimukh etc.

– HS Suhrawardy is remembered here and here

Dead Reckoning is forgotten. 

Inequality: a nuanced take

– Didn’t realise earlier how closely this resembles the book.

Deadliest road.

    Suhrawardy is known in West Bengal only for his role in Direct Action Day and Noakhali Massacre. He’s kind of Bengal’s Narendra Modi figure in talks …

      That’s probably as simplistic as the way Jinnah is known to most Indians, or Sheikh Mujib is usually portrayed in Pakistan. But then again, at least Suhrawardy is known in the Indian Bengal. Hardly anyone in Bangladesh knows who he was or what he did. I’ll write more on him later.

        Well, in that way Modi also do have a second picture. He’s the angel driving Gujarat to economic prosperity and everyone else is struggling to emulate him. Indian media often projects the latter over the former. Having an alternative is probably good but still doesn’t justify his deeds at the time of need.

        There are a lot of articles in Pakistan about Mujib and in India about Jinnah to demystify their stereotypes, but would love to see one from you on Suhrawardy.

    Inequality is an interesting topic and as I mentioned I will probably write up more on it.
