Ajoy Roy has worn many hats throughout his life—as a bright scientist; professor of physics; human rights and secular activist; author; and perhaps, most significant of all, as a valiant freedom fighter. It is indeed hard to come up with an example of a Bangladeshi as decorated as Prof Roy. To sum up, the life of Prof Roy epitomises the famous Kennedy dictum, "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country."

Dr. Nuran Nabi, a former scientist and a noted secular Bangladeshi-American, has been reelected the councilman in the Plainsboro Township Council of NJ, USA. Voters in Plainsboro overwhelmingly elected Dr. Nuran Nabi with 70% vote to the Council.
