Yeshim Iqbal We are all, of course, shocked and extremely disturbed. Much like many of you who will be reading this, I have a profound sense of unease and sadness that my country is not safe. That the university campus I grew up on is the same place where my father got stabbed while trying […]Read More Response to the attack on my father
This blog has returned for no reason except that a few wonderful young people have demanded that it should, people that are so wonderful that I apparently find it very hard to say no to them! Now that it’s back, we’ll see where it goes. My previous blog was about the making of Kaan Pete […]Read More Kaan Pete Roi: The Twenty-Month Update
I’m tickled that I’m both starting and finishing this blog with a going-away party. I guess that means I’m doing something right.

But I suppose a big […]Read More All done and thank you!

We’re of course non-profit and publicity’s […]Read More Facebook Favour

August 15th, 2013, my last full day at the KPR office! We decided to have a board meeting in the morning. There wasn’t much for the board to meet about, because most major decisions had already been taken, but it seemed like a fun idea. Jaynal Uncle is on the board and he’s the person […]Read More Last Full Day at the KPR office!
It’s been awhile since I’ve been on here! Mostly because I’ve been in the process of moving to NYC to start graduate school. My year in Bangladesh is officially, heartbreakingly over, which means it is time for me to start finishing off this blog. KPR is thriving, and the end of my year had many […]Read More Almost done!
