St. Gregory's College recalled

Notre Dame College in Dhaka, Bangladesh, has quite an institutional memory. For instance, I learned that the late Fr. Gillespie could never reconcile himself to Kamal Hossain being both the author of the constitution of Bangladesh and the young student who, during the 1952 language movement, chanted the slogan: "Rashtro bhasha Urdu chai" (We want Urdu to be the state language)!
