Milan Barua is the manager of the guest house I’m living in.  Milan is THE MAN responsible for  taking good care of me. He is a fantastic cook. Bengali and Indian food as good as anything you will find on east fifth street in New York City. Milan is a Buddhist from Chittagong, Bangladesh’s second largest city where his wife and two sons reside. Before managing the IUB guest house Milan was on the staff at the Iraqi embassy in the eighties up until Operation Desert Storm. Since that war, Iraq no longer maintains an embassy in Bangladesh. Oh and by the way if Milan could vote, it would be for Obama.
