Through my writing, I promote freedom of expression, which is a fundamental requirement to preserve the rights of humans. I send a message of peace from Pittsburgh’s Northside to the global community.
Tuhin Das is a Bengali poet currently living in the U.S. He comes from Barishal, a city in south-central Bangladesh. He was involved in the Little Magazine Movement and edited several literary magazines; he has had poetry criticism articles, short stories, and opinion columns broadly published in the last twenty years in Bangladesh and West Bengal, India. He is the author of eight poetry books in his native language. He is considered by critics as a significant poet of Generation Zero, who began publishing contemporary Bangladeshi literature in 2000. His life was deeply impacted by groups who limit freedom of expression. Carnegie Mellon University invited him to Pittsburgh, PA as a visiting scholar, and City of Asylum invited him to join their writer sanctuary program. He left his home country, Bangladesh, in 2016. Das’ work appeared in The Logue Project’s Home Language, Words Without Borders, The Bare Life Review, Immigrant Report, The Offing, and Epiphany. His poetry collection Exile Poems is forthcoming from Bridge & Tunnel Books.
