Hi Christina,
A big hello to you! The committee is rocking already and I am so happy to be part of it. Though I haven't had a chance to contribute much lately, I am hoping I can in the next round. Nice to connect with you here as well.

Hello Shahid Bhai! I was largely raised in Durban, big ex-Indian population, nice food - I have a couple of Bhais and Gorefois and Auntijis in the family! SciDev has guidelines, I can send you some .... although the best thing to do is speak to TV Padma about story ideas, she's got a good grip on matters from New Delhi (and read the website of course; it's amazing the number of people who say they want to write for SciDev.Net but won't read it!)

I don’t understand how you make out the way to address in our local language ‘Shahid “Bhai”…It is a popular and much practiced way here in my country. Had you ever been in Bangladesh?

I was in trouble in uploading picture. I hope you will get as I have sent picture to Mike hoping that he would be able to overcome the technical problem.

Anyway, how do you cover issues from Bangladesh? Does have a correspondent here? Should I write for What is the guideline?

Thanks and regards, keep in touch.

Shahid, Dhaka

Radio Lotus, to be specific. Rajiv Kamal. I heard it on air. (I heard Kennedy Abwao, your old colleague from SciDev.Net as well) So ... I have just had a request. Who is the most charismatic scientist in Africa? The kind who will attract hard-bitten reporters to a conference and send them away all fired up with enthusiasm? And I battled! Your ideas? Or should the organisers go for an international bigwig? I know lots of good scientists but they're not always great speakers.

Hi Christina
Glad to see you here at last. And thanks for giving my name to the SABC presenter who called yesterday.
