A Lady I planned to interview:Need Your Comment


While I was in community service Club in our university, we used to go to teach slum school as a project of our club. Once I got chance to meet two lady who are contributing to bring change in their community. I was impressed to see their work. Those are the lady I planned to interview. Please comment me, who do you think is the best.

First is Nasreen Baqui, is the founder of deprived and underprivileged street and slum areas children for free of cost in the more peaceful part of the city at North Halishahar, Chittagong. They not only provided education, but also provide t-shirt and lunch with free of cost. On the other hand, she also founded Nurture's Centre for Disabled and Paralyzed where most of the patients in Nurture is treated free of charge. There are 12 staff members, mainly physiotherapists, a few of whom are volunteers from France and Netherlands.

Second, is Nohora Khan, is the founder of slum school. She also helped students to educate free of cost. They also provide medical facilities to their students. It is also in Chittagong.

I personally prefer to interview Nasreen, because I have heard manycommitement from her, but what do you think? Please comment me.

Both very interesting women

Sunita, Namaskar. I am so happy to hear that you are feeling better and I hope that by Thursday, you will have your usual energy back. Both women are compelling for the work that they do, and seeing as they provide very similar services, I recommend you pick the one you feel most strongly about. Ms. Baqui sounds interesting as not only is she providing services to the poor and underprivileged but also to the disabled, a group that is often marginalized in society. Because of her reach, I would be very interested in what motivated her to start these two organizations, the challenges she faces, her background (did she come from a poor background too?) and what she finds most fulfilling about her work.

I look forward to seeing who you choose and wish you all the best with the interview. By the way, Yuko, the founder of V.E.N.T! Magazine (the online magazine in Nepal) has just joined PulseWire and you might like to connect with her. You may already know this but both Anjana and Khushbu write for her magazine. It would be wonderful if she could promote and report on your meeting in July. Yuko can be found at:

Dearest janice,
One exam is finished today next week we have more to do. Thank you so much for your sugegstion. I planned to interview Ms. Baqui. I will try to get answer of your question from Ms. Baqui. Where are our world pulse correspondence, I didn't hear from any of them.

I have add Yuko and emai her about our meeting this afternoon, hope she will respond me. As soon as I hear from Yoku, I will email you. I am also so excitied about this meeting and cannot wait till July 11. I am also thinking to talk about Yoku with Anjana and Khushbu.

With Love and Regards
