  • EDITORIAL

    Right now, we’re going through an 80’s revival phase — or at least we are at the end of that phase. However, modern themes are getting a little old. It’s the same thing just updated and recycled in a lot of cases.

  • DO YOU REALLY, THOUGH?

    People don’t really want to go back to a time when the world was simpler. They want to go back to a time when they didn’t understand how complicated the world has always been.

  • FLAUNT, DON’T FONT

    I have a weird feeling about fonts.

  • WORDS: Less is more

    While what I am about to say won’t apply to quite a few different types of writings, it addresses an issue we often face with reader submissions. A lot of us have this misconception that wordier write-ups mean that they are good.

  • I’VE BEEN SAT

    I write to you from the comfort of my work chair. It’s a good chair, it has arm rests and the back support is slightly inclined. Although it ends halfway up my back when I sit up straight and I wish it didn’t, I’m okay with it.

  • AMAZONIA

    Most of us reading this are fortunate enough to grow up in a taken for granted, hyper-connected world where news from across the world often gets to us before even local news.

  • SHADES

    It’s hot out there. Considering you live in an apartment that’s cramped between other apartments on every side, you probably don’t get much sunlight inside your room.

  • IT’S FAMILY TIME!

    I always found it amazing how Eid-ul-Azha has a way of bringing the entire family together no matter what. It would always be exciting

  • The Forbidden Truth

    I was raised mostly by women at my household. My two sisters and mother have been supporting me from my childhood to this day. However, regarding one issue, everyone in the house would always be aloof. I remember once asking one of my sisters what a period is

  • THE PROMISED LAND

    The USA holds a special place in my heart. I have never been there, but like everyone else I know, I have family there. But that’s not it,

  • CRICKET

    I don’t usually care for cricket. My understanding of the game is limited to a surface level understanding of the rules and a Hasan Minhaj bit about the BCCI.

  • IT’S WHAT WE’RE ALL THINKING ABOUT

    The year after the FIFA World Cup and before the Olympics may not mean much to most of the world, but in this neck of the woods, it’s party time (or hold your breath and don’t move from the couch time, depending on how superstitious you are).

  • CONSUMPTION

    Eid, religiously marked by unity, family, and togetherness, has for many, lost its true meaning and the sheen of the occasion has been replaced by crazy discounts and rampant consumerism.

  • We’d like to hear from you

    I’ve been with SHOUT from the very beginning as a contributor the past six years.

  • POP YOUR BUBBLES

    Bubbles used to be fun things. It’s a fun word to say, blowing bubbles and chasing them around was one of the things almost everyone remembers doing in their childhood.

  • Metro Tales

    Public transportation happens to be one of those things I’m somewhat of a ‘nerd’ about the way some people love learning about the various flavours of coffee or loan interest repayment schemes.

    Kids these days...

    It’s fun to scroll through your newsfeed and see thirty-somethings and forty-somethings blame your generation for most societal problems.

  • THOSE WHO MAKE US HAPPY

    Eating is a biological process for a lot of people, but for a fair few, eating brings around moments of spiritual elevation.

  • ODE TO ANIMATION

    Animation is a medium that is often considered childish and is overlooked compared to live action.

  • INTERN OF THE YEAR

    I remember doing an internship at a radio company.

    Expectation is taking its toll

    We often lead ourselves to dangerous precipices by letting our expectations get the better of us.

  • They'll probably do a better job than you

    When I took the decision to major in the arts, many people asked me, “Why bother?” They wanted to know how I would put food on the table and warned me of the job insecurity. And often times, some enlightened individual would tell me, “Arts are for girls.”

  • Soft skills? What's that?

    I think we have all seen upsets in sports where a star-studded team shows up to only be defeated by a ragtag bunch of minnows.

  • I HOPE YOU CAN UNDERSTAND ME

    I have a slight stutter. It comes and goes. It's worse if I'm talking to new people, or if I really know what I'm talking about and get overexcited.

  • The book that taught love

    For the longest time, I never told anyone about my favourite book.

  • Don't weight till it's too late

    It's a popular meme among millennials that we don't take care of our health. From sleeping late to skipping breakfasts and hoarding on lunch, and hours spent sitting with minimal physical activity, we should really be looking towards making our lives sustainable not just financially but physically as well.

  • WELCOME TO THE DESERT

    The storm that never ends, well, why did it ever have to begin?

  • Respect is a two-way street

    Small steps us men could take can make the world a safer place for women by a lot. No one's asking anyone to fundamentally change overnight. It's all about treating a

  • Yeah, sports. It's in the game.

    And I'm pretty sure you aren't. Cricket, and every other sport in Bangladesh, requires proper infrastructure – plans, support, and finally development – if we even want to have a seat at the table where the big boys talk.

  • WAIT, THERE'S MORE

    You have failed to keep up with your new year's resolution on the first week. You are dejected. The first week of classes makes it seem like there's no way you can do another 51 of these. 2019 has gone bad at the start and it will remain bad till the end. Or will it?
