Bangladesh in the Eyes of Dan Mozena

This blog post is about an American gentleman, his love for travel, and his love for BanIgladesh. He is none other than His Excellency Dan Mozena, the former US Ambassador to Bangladesh. I am sharing these two videos from US Embassy on H/E Dan Mozena who had just finished his three years tenure as US Ambassador to Bangladesh. The reason why I am sharing all these videos is that like so many people in Bangladesh, I really am a great fan of this gentleman. I believe he is the only Ambassador to Bangladesh, with whom most of the people of our country have a para-social relationship. Although many of us Bangladeshis are not acquainted to him personally, yet most of us feel that he is so close to us — the Bangladeshi people!

Here is the introductory YouTube video (disseminated by the US Embassy) in 2011 of his entry to Bangladesh as the US Ambassador :

Within the three years of his tenure, he and his spouse had traveled to all of the 64 districts in Bangladesh before he went back home. It was absolutely amazing and inspiring how he was all praises for the hardworking people of Bangladesh. He admired their entrepreneurial spirit, and he believed Bangladesh could soon become an emerging tiger in Southeast Asia once certain bottlenecks are extricated.

It is interesting how he clad himself in our native attire and he went to the extent of dressing himself as a rickshaw puller! His family gave him a gift of Bangladeshi rickshaw (the rickshawis featured in the photos and in the next video).

Here are the pictures of H/E Dan Mozena and his family in Bangladeshi native attire withRickshaw. The reports on his and his family members’ being clad in native attire as rickshawpullers in the Bangladeshi traditional dress lungis, had created a positive buzz in Bangladesh! This got viral via social media. Here are the interesting pictures of H/E and his family clad in Bangladeshi native attire in rickshaw that I collected from the March 2013 posts of and



In 2013 in the American Center in Dhaka, I had the opportunity of listening to him once he came to deliver his address to all the Bangladeshi students who were all set to embark on their journey to the USA for higher studies. He advised us to build bridges of friendship with the US people in the US and also inspired us by saying that once we return to Bangladesh, with our US education experience, we should build a better Bangladesh. During national crisis of Bangladesh with the Rana Plaza industrial incident, Ambassador Mozena, along with the US embassy staff had voluntarily donated blood for the Rana Plaza victims.

Here is the concluding video of H/E Dan Mozena that was made for the Bangladeshi people before his farewell.

H/E now has gone back to Washington. Like his having a ‘big heart for Bangladesh’ — his love for Bangladesh and its people, many of us also like to have this opportunity to reciprocate this affection of his in any way possible. Many of us hold him close to our heart! On behalf of many of us Bangladeshis, through this blog post, I would like to wish him all the best in his future endeavors!
