“Voice  Bangladesh”

On December 16, 2012, after more than two years of hard working, the “Voice Bangladesh” is born as a monthly newspaper committed to constructive and crusading journalism. As a people’s paper, “Voice  Bangladesh” is destined to take a stand, to follow the hard investigative story, and to safeguard the interest of the people and its hard-earned freedom through the war of liberation. A fearless paper, Voice  Bangladesh is ready to create opinion, and not just remain a passive vehicle of news.

“Voice  Bangladesh” is being published “on-line’ covering a wide range of authoritative insight and opinions on local and international event, diplomacy, politics, security affairs, business, finance, and development on science and technology. This ‘on-line’ newspaper also offers a variety of web-only content, blogs, debates, and audio/video programs. The newspaper will be published in a magazine format since we expect the contents of this paper will have much more shelf value and depth than a newspaper. Thus the format will be smaller but the impact will be bigger.

‘Voice Bangladesh’ believes in plain language reporting. The theme of reporting is: “to be conversational, to put things in the most direct and picturesque manner, as people would talk to each other in common speech, to remember and use expressive colloquialisms”. Our efforts will be to “try to tell the world about the Bangladesh and the world, to persuade the expert and reach the amateur, with an injection of opinion and argument.”

“Voice  Bangladesh” has its offices both at New York, USA and at Dhaka, Bangladesh. Thanks to the service of modern technology that the newspaper will have the latest updates from all around the world, offering analysis and opinions of the mass around the globe.  Voice of Bangladesh is led by a team of highly qualified professionals on different subjects and components of the newspaper.

HR photoAdviser : Harold Rasheed: An artist. Harold Rasheed’s mastery of the guitar has been one of the biggest and longest kept secrets in Bangladesh’s music scene. He employs an approach developed and honed by decades of appreciating music of all styles, with a special fondness for music from the sixties and the seventies. Though deeply rooted in the blues, he cites Indian classical and traditional Bangla folk music to be one of his deepest influences. This specially shows through his genuinely unique approach to his instrument. A firm believer and practitioner in the sadly diminishing art of improvisation and free jam, the concept of “feel” forms an integral part of his music.
