Prabhupada Marathon in Bangladesh

For several years I had been meditating on arranging a Prabhupada book marathon in Dhaka – the Bangladeshi devotees haven't been exposed to Srila Prabhupada's view on book distribution, and to the ISKCON tradition of the book marathon. This year was the first time I would be in Bangladesh during the month of December, and on my arrival in Dhaka in October I had suggested to Jagatguru Prabhu: "Let's do a book...
