About Us

Bengali Diaspora (BD) is a platform that collects and curates the stories of Bengalis living around the world. Our goal is to create a rich archive with stories that are widely accessible, ever-growing, online, and multimedia repository. Bengali Diaspora is home to materials about Bengali communities living abroad.

Our Goal

Amplifying Bengali Diaspora Narratives

Bengalis are making remarkable socio-economic and political-cultural contributions around the world. Yet, Bengali stories are not adequately amplified in a hyper-connected and hyper-globalized world. BD platform aims to present Bengali narratives told from Bengali vantage points that are historical, critical, political, cultural, and unapologetic.
