Hi readers, this is Diganta (Digonto in Bengali pronounciation) Sarkar taking India to you. Let me introduce briefly and then I’ll go into details of why I started blogging.
I am Diganta, from Redmond (WA), USA. I belong to the Software generation of India, the generation often hated in the West and envied in the South Asia. Though I stay in Redmond, WA (USA) these days, I am born and brought up in a suburban town of Barddhaman (Burdwan) in West Bengal. My mother tongue is Bengali, the fourth highest spoken language in the world. I love the language though I have a love-hate relationship with West Bengal.
Besides India, I have a strong connection with Bangladesh. My father came to India at the time of Bangladesh freedom fight. My wife is still a Bangladeshi citizen. Hence, I will cover a lot of bilateral issues of India-Bangladesh in my blog.
The reason I started blogging is the amount of hatred I can see across the people in todays world. Every problem starts with a few bad person, and ends at generations of hatred, even among so-called good people. There are more specific problems, like misquoting, and misuse of statistics. Some people even start writing up statistics without even verifying the sources. One wrong writing generates wrong knowledge for each of the readers, and the error propagates!! I would try to rectify the statistics or information given in several newspapers and sites using some reliable and dependable sources.My focus will mainly be on India and her relationship with different countriesthough the priority will be our neighbors.
On religious side, I am a secular humanist. You will get a reflection of my thoughts in my blogs. Also, I am a die-hard sports lover. Hence, I hope to intervene my serious discussions with some lucid sports round-up.
Good bye, keep on reading.
