In memoriam

We grieve together about the untimely passing of our kind friend, brilliant scholar and student 

Raasheed Mahmood, M.A., MSS, BSS.

Raasheed was born 16 August 1976 in Feni, Bangladesh and passed away on 31 March 2021 while on fieldwork in Shyamnagar sub-district of Shatkhira district of Bangladesh, working on the lack of access to fresh drinking water by coastal Bangladeshi communities, probably due to complications of a dysentery infection. He left his wife and two young boys behind.

Rasheed was a Professor of Anthropology in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Dhaka in Bangladesh. Since 2019 he was enrolled as a PhD student in the PhD program Asian Studies at the Palacký University Olomouc, Czech Republic.

এমন মানব জনম আর কি হবে। / মন যা কর ত্বরায় কর এই ভবে।। / অনন্ত রূপ সৃষ্টি করলেন সাঁই / শুনি মানবরূপের উত্তম কিছুই নাই। / দেব দেবতাগণ করে আরাধন জন্ম নিতে মানবে। / (ফকির লালন শাহ)
