Grim life for Bangladeshi prostitutes

At first sight this seemed like any other port I had visited in Bangladesh.

Trucks queuing
Bangladesh has a population of 152.6 million
Dusty streets packed with men and boys and long, long queues of trucks.

The difference here is that once I had turned down a certain side street I had entered the biggest brothel in Bangladesh.

I've been thinking about the countless organizations and aid agencies that find their way in third world countries with their glorious agendas in saving us from what not.

Hi. :)

I just had a quick question.

My family and I are moving back to BD and my mother (and I) were wondering about the status of broadband internet in Bangladesh.

We were there about two years ago and last I heard they were bringing it in..

is that still true?

Journalist picked by the Caretaker govt. [May. 11th, 2007|09:03 am]


The Bangladeshi army arrested a Bangladesh journalist at his home early Friday for unknown reasons, according to his wife.

Tasneem Khalil writes for the Dhaka-based Daily Star and also works part-time for Human Rights Watch and as a stringer for several news organizations, including CNN.

Khalil's wife telephoned CNN to say that the men who arrested him were from an army intelligence unit.

In a statement, she said that four men in plainclothes identified themselves as belonging to "the joint task force." They refused to tell Khalil on what charges he was being arrested and cautioned him to be quiet "if you don't want anything else to happen," she said.

The men searched the house, took Khalil's passport and cell phones, two desktop computers and "all the documents, notepads, piles of paper, CDs and everything," she said. "They took it all away."

good/bad? [Apr. 25th, 2007|12:22 pm]

I was at Barnes & Nobles, flipping through The Economist when I came across this article:
No going back
Apr 19th 2007 | DHAKA
The army exiles the country's leading politicians
ENDING an era in Bangladeshi politics dominated by the two mutually-loathing heads of feuding dynasties, the generals behind the interim administration this week exiled them both. On April 17th, Khaleda Zia (pictured left), leader of the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) and prime minister until October 2006, agreed to go into exile in Saudi Arabia—which also took in another exiled former prime minister, Pakistan's Nawaz Sharif. The next day Mrs Zia's nemesis, Sheikh Hasina Wajed, prime minister from 1996 to 2001 and leader of the Awami League, the other big party, was declared a “national-security risk” and barred from Bangladesh.
