shomaj tomaj

This is my vain attempt in covering the politics of Bangladesh. I don't even have time for this blog never mind another. But, now that I have set it up it may give me the incentive to do something on it. I just need to figure out how to extend the days by a few hours; Bernad's watch would come in handy...

'Shomaj' means society in Bengali, 'Tomaj' is just a word that rhymes with 'Shomaj' to give it some emphasis, something that we do a lot in the Bengali (and other Southasian) language(s). This could also mean 'Society and etc.' which is what this blog is largely about, because politics isn't just restricted to the happenings of the parliament but society at large, our every action/thought is a political act. As Aristotle says, we are all political animals by definition...

Do check it out, not much on it at the moment, but hopefully soon! (Will try and not do a: http://www.bnpbd.com/)

how about Shomaj Fromage. Social cheese! Interesting francobongo odour and alludes to the processed and cheesy nature of the phenomena!

waiting...

I don't think you've grasped the 'emphasis of the rhyming word', you can only change the first letter but the rest must remain the same, no additional lettering (consonants mainly). Fromage is not suitable because of its 'r'...Sorry I'm being stupidly pedantic I like the idea. :thumbsup:
