Where it all started…..
Posted by bangalnama on August 9, 2008
There are beginnings and there are ends. And there are beginnings which are not supposed to have ends. This one exemplifies the latter. To start with, as the King advised Alice, ‘begin at the beginning’, so shall we.
It started on a virtual forum, a social forum to be precise. The debate that sparked off there triggered further debates and discussions including the making of an album consisting of photographs of the children of eastern part of Bengal, of those who have roots and those who had roots, there, in erstwhile East Bengal (opaar Bangla prior Partition) and present Bangladesh, and finally culminated in the making of a unique
project we lovingly named ‘Projet Bangalnama’ or simply Bangalnama ( inspired from the title of Tapan Roychoudhury’s memoir). But this, we assure you is just the beginning.
P.S. There are issues that need to be sorted e.g. language of the blog, people behind it, the way the project is to be shaped, future of it and so on and so forth.
Our only answer–patience. 😉
