This is a tale of how a medical technology was adapted, revised and presented to ad illiterate public through house-to-house health education by a small army of dedicated health workers. Through a decade of persistent work, the entire BRAC organization initiated this ambitious programme, and inspite of all skepticism from the global public health community, carried the science of oral therapy into every home in Bangladesh. Never before, or since, has a public health effort of this intensity been tried.

Jibanananda Das (1899-1954) is one of the most important poets of Bengal. Nevertheless, he remains a poet little known outside West Bengal and Bangladesh. Perhaps due to the absence of competent translations into English and other languages, Das achievement as a poet remains unrepresented in world literature. This selection of poems is designed to emphasize how Das's poems are great treasures of our literature through the medium of translation.
