Habibays birthdaycake, 12 jan 2012, Motijheel, Dhaka
habibay is my teamleader. from drik. the photography department. he started 9 years ago with photography. what he did before? i forgot. he smiles most of the time, talks with a very calm voice, never tries to pressure m,e but knows exactly how to make me move. in between a fantastic sense of humor within his comments on the side.

it's habibays birthday. people from work and me came to his house or place. his wife phoned saika, to come around, to bring some food, rice, meat, a cake. saikait and his wife sutapa came, then sumon and his wife, then moni and me.

we were playing games, eating, talking, in bangla, in english. saikat looked at facebook, played habibays son's computer games. sumon discussed work matters with habibay. the woman prepared the food, making tea, chatting. i was looking. 11 pm we went home. got a little car, tired, sitting next to each other.

habibay is now 50 years old. he never had a birthday party before that.
