Ratul's Post

Dear Sir, While going through some the student edited journals of Tufts and Georgetown, I have discovered that there are mere references to the works that the University is engaged in. Rather, issues regarding the world of that particular subject is more prominent. However, University archives do have more information to guide someone. 
In the mean time, I have finished most of reading items that I were supposed to do - except for Calcutta Chromosome
Sincerely, Ratul

Returning to Paris

Returning to Paris after a 4 day soujern to Lille, Callais, Nouvelle-eglise, and adajecent villages, walk in the woods and a renewed ROMANCE to live in Dhaka amidst sound, dust, and work. Tonight, shall start reading "Keep the Aspidistra Flying" - a poetic novel by George Orwell - telling the fate of an aspiring poet.

If anyone finds this post inviting - you can find it on the web.

Keep the Aspidistra Flying

Hello Everyone - From Lille, North of France

If you just go to our BLOG, you will find all sorts information about what to READ. You can click on the Books-Film-Theatre section of the blog and get the names. In addition - see what others are reading and get those online OR in print.

Extract from Maimuna's 4th Reading Report

Dear Sir,
It gives me immense pleasure to inform you that I have finished reading another great novel by Orhan Pamuk, "The Museum of Innocence".  I had to read it entirely online because of so many consecutive strikes in the country, it was difficult to go out and buy the book. I am thankful to these strikes though, for allowing me time to finish this lengthy novel. Having read two books of this great writer Orhan Pamuk, there is one thing I can say for certain that, he is immensely talented in writing with the great skill of keeping his readers bound to his stories till its very end. It is because of his great writing and story-telling skill, I am now inspired to read more of not just his novels but other writers’ as well!

Send me your FINAL posts Immediately

Dear All,

Start sending me your working reports immediately after you read this. I have NOT received any reports from Avijit, Mashfique, Farzan, Shibli - so far.

I am right now in the middle of a God-forsaken part of the world - near the sea shores of North of France - on the opposite of Dover beach. I do not think that I intend to spend more than ONE more second than I need to.

Loves to everyone.
