The Maiden Voyage of the Monsoon

On a forum of Another Subcontinent, I came across this nicely-written memoir by Mahmud Rahman.

While browsing a used bookstore in Berkeley, he came across something very surprising in a book about the maritime life of 'East Pakistan' (i.e., Bangladesh). The coincidence described is almost Ghosh-ian in its crystallization of dramatically different experiences in time and space.
