Rezwan · June, 2014

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. As the translator coordinator for the Global Voices Bangla Lingua I love translating selected Global Voices posts into my mother tongue Bangla. Follow me at @rezwan.
