The world talks about the people who die in a garment factory and when muslim people are rioting but no one talks about the thousands, if not tens of thousands, strong protesting for justice at Shahbag square...funny how that is. I had the chance to visit this square and see the people, young and old, voice their anger towards their government in a non-violent manor. This was truly an experience I will never forget.
Chobi Mela is a photo festival that happens every 2 years in dhaka and its title this year was Fragility...something that spoke to me on many levels. The photographers were amazing and their pictures moving...crazy how a picture is worth a thousands words and how they can invoke so much emotion
Did you hear about the rose that grew
from a crack in the concrete?
Proving nature's law is wrong it
learned to walk with out having feet.
Funny it seems, but by keeping it's dreams,
it learned to breathe fresh air.
Long live the rose that grew from concrete
when no one else ever cared.
