"Bangladesh is on the move"

Tahmima Anam in The Guardian of Dec. 31 celebrates the victory of the "secular, progressive" Awami League in the recent Bangladesh elections. I hope she's right.

Is this really great news, or just another cycle?
BTW, I googled the author of the article, who is a recent Harvard grad, published novelist, and member of a leading Bangladeshi family.

Well, if she's right, it's good news. If she turns out to be wrong, then it's "just another cycle." But the peaceful, apparently fair nature of the election seems to augur well.
