About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To help bridge between people of all culture and faith traditions.

ABOUT ME

I consider myself personable, open, ethical, reflective but outgoing.I was born in Bangladesh but have lived mostly in the US and for a short while in Europe for the last 32 years. I am very international by nature and like people who are open. I do not like excessive nationalism, tribalism, religious or ideological fanaticsm, and politics. However, I am a Sufi and therefore tend toward inclusive spirituality.

PHILOSOPHY

Live, learn, love and Leave a Legacy.

Ethics, faith, compassion, and simplicity are the corner stones, around which I organize my life. In every human relationship, I apply two principes: Love and Respect. Everyday is a new day and tomorrow will be better.
