Necessity is the mother of invention, literature is the grandchild of crisis!
Last five months, most of the spaces of my thought were captivated by one thing – telling a story about an ongoing history.
It’s published now!
I was not always very happy in working at G&R. I actually attempted to quit several times and plan my career in a whole different way. But somehow I wasn’t able to do that. Love often causes pain and for some strange reason, we always accept it, and often enjoy it.
Some stories to be told loudly as most people don’t want to hear – we all are busy telling our stories.

the amar bornomala team is working hard to release the 2nd font. you’ll be able to download it from the same site. we are also collecting people’s feedback for the 3rd font which going to be released on next pohela boishakh.
those who believe in bangla keep the same right to contribute in developing it. we are expecting your active and constructive inputs so that we can set some standards for bangla fonts. we hope it’ll help the upcoming typographers to be more interested in developing new bangla fonts.
you can upload a scan copy of your handwritings here which may include the suggestions for how you want to see the alphabets. based on experts selections, we’ll create a font combining different handwritings of different alphabets.

the beginning was back in 2010 when i first started thinking about an academic thesis entitled ‘amar bornomala o somosamoyik bangla typography‘ (my alphabets and contemporary bangla typography). those were some dots which needed to be connected.
in last two years i’ve tried to connect those dots. i’ve talked with several people, organizations, institutes to get supports. but i’ve never imagined that the honorable prime minister will inaugurate this initiative!

The rapid growth of digital technology is fundamentally changing the world as we know it. Global internet penetration in 2010 stood at 1.9 billion people and is expected to grow to 5 billion by 2015. It is unsurprising that with this in mind, information in the world (videos, music, documents etc.) that is stored online is also projected to grow from 800 exabytes to 53 zetabytes (eMarketer, 2011).
To put this into context, Google recently announced that there is 60 hours of video (YouTube Blog, 2012) uploaded onto YouTube each and every minute.
