Where Else In the World...

… do they name lodges and eateries after famous novels and poems? (Saw Aranyak Bar & Restaurant and Hotel Ruposhi Bangla on VIP Road)

… do they question flight landing announcements with a philosophical detachment? (“Nemey ki hobey? Shei to ekgheye…”)

… do they make TV serials from hundred year old classic novels?

… do they have king size hoardings of the National Football League?

… do they play Bismillah Khan as piped music on Shatabdi Express?

Don't bother to answer. These are all rhetorical questions. I passed by The City.

Haha. This reads like --

sokol desher chaite shYamol."

your love for the Place shines through every time. and for those of us who know what it is to love a city despite its many faults, we can completely relate to the feeling. :0)
