It is a matter of pride and great satisfaction to pen the message for “Nongor”, the Bi-yearly magazine published by the Bangladeshi Marine Community, Singapore (BMCS). My heart fills with immense pleasure as I see the intellectual and cultural thirst of our community members and their family members in search of our roots in this globalized and mechanized world today.

“Nongor” is a Bangla term meaning “Anchor”, which symbolizes Safety, Security, Confidence, Hope, Stability, Good Luck, and also the Consistent Strength to master the great quality of Resilience amidst all Adversity. It is a reminder to stay grounded and be proud of your Strong Existence to embark and survive on any Journey that Life has to offer. It can also serve as a reminder of one’s Roots, Cultures and Origins when far Away from home.

The Bangladeshi Marine Community, Singapore perfectly embodies all the Spiritual Dimension of the Anchor, and serves as a Strong Global Mediator for the Bangladeshi Maritime community. Our emotions, joys and sorrows, needs and expectations are all tied to the single anchor of the BMCS. This magazine has accurately portrayed our mission and vision of safeguarding our Cultural, Social, and Spiritual identity.

This community serves as a support network for its members, providing them with a sense of belonging and connection to their roots. The community works to preserve and promote the culture and traditions of Bangladesh, as well as to advocate for the needs and interests of its members. In addition to organizing cultural events and social gatherings. The community also works to provide assistance and support to its members in times of need.
