This newsletter is about liberty, which translates to mukti in Bangla. 

Actually, mukti means freedom.  I couldn’t find an exact translation of liberty.  It’s a western concept, noted a friend.  Well, this is about liberty, freedom, mukti, for for all people, but specifically for the people of Bangladesh.   

It is unapologetically and unabashedly about a liberal Bangladesh. It’s about political liberty: popular democracy and freedom of expression.  It’s about economic liberty and material improvement in living standards of all.  And it’s about social and cultural liberty to live one’s life according to their own values.

It contains economic analysis, political musings, and pop-cultural esoterica. It contains new writing, exclusive to this newsletter, as well as those published elsewhere over the years.

In solidarity then for a free Bangladesh.
