The word “Sorjo” (সূর্য ) directly translates from Bangla to English, sun.
My mother use to tell me ever since I was a little girl that after a thunderstorm, the sun will always come back in its brightest form. No matter what happens, after all the pain, suffering, and grief, there is always light waiting to come its way. You just need to search for it.
-Fabliha Anbar, Editor in Chief of Sorjo
