Rezwan · November, 2012

I am from Dhaka, Bangladesh and I have been blogging at The 3rd world view since 2003. I have been bridgeblogging the Bangladeshi and South Asian Blogosphere in Global Voices since 2005. I am also the translator coordinator for the Global Voices Bangla Lingua and love translating selected Global Voices posts into my mother tongue Bangla. I also like to follow the groundbreaking outreach projects of Rising Voices and write about them. Follow me at @rezwan.
