Research is also ongoing and the database will grow as we continue to update it. Items with the symbol “i” indicate that an abstract is available.

342."Me Migrant", by Md Mukul Hossine, Transcreated by Cyril Wong (translated from Bangla), Singapore: Ethos Books, 2016, Print.i<x Me Migrant features the poems of Md Mukul Hossine – poems originally written in Bengali by Mukul, transcreated by Singapore poet Cyril Wong based on English translations by Fariha Imran and Farouk Ahammed. It represents the voice of hope and inclusiveness, of longing and dreaming, of service and heart. This collection was born of the friendship between volunteers of community clinic HealthServe and foreign construction workers. Dr Tan Lai Yong, a volunteer medical doctor at Healthserve and his team of medical students from National University of Singapore (NUS) were inspired by their experiences and Mukul's poems to respond with some writings of their own. The poetry within these pages makes us see farther, think deeper, and listen. In listening, let us cross these borders.Languages: EnglishDepartments: English Language and LiteratureCategories: Poetry
