Meet storytellers from unique communities around the world and across the local neighbourhoods of Toronto in the World in Other Words. With a population of more than 100,000 Bengalis from Bangladesh, and a large Bengali diaspora from India, the language was one of the few that grew in usage by forty percent in Canada, according to the 2011 census. Hosted by Subrata Kumar Das, hear members of the Bengali writing community in Canada, including Bhajan Sarker, Akhtar Hossain, Shabbeedur Shuja, Debanjana Mukherjee Bhowmik, Sreyoshi Bose Datta and Badal Ghosh, read their work in English and Bengali.
