Diary of a Muslim Nobody Reaz Rahman
Diary of a Muslim Nobody attempts to reach out to society as a whole, regardless of affiliations and the social constructs of the labels we place ourselves in, with the intention to reach out to the commonality of the human experience. Interweaving between personal reflections of the human experience and commentary of global issues with touches of affection & humour through his relationship with his parents, Reaz attempts to demonstrate the multiplicity of experiences as we live our everyday lives. I have always been very aware of the power of language and the potential of its impact upon our own selves as individuals, our relationships and interactions and indeed our perceptions. Perhaps the intrinsic relationship between our language and humankind may be best understood when we consider letters, by themselves, important in their own entity and when placed together becoming even more powerful to become words - giving them substance and meaning. In this instance, human beings may be aligned to letters - each important within our right and when we recognise our own value, we are then able to understand this in context to our relationship to one another. In that moment we are able to have the most profound and positive of impact in our own lives and in the lives of others around us.
