It was just like yesterday when we had lunch at Koshed's office. China made my favourite dal soup and stir-fried pumpkin leaves. Koshed said to us, people don't need much. We all should should be aware of that. I said I would be happy if I could eat pumpkin leaves everyday. Everyone laughed out loud. When I left Bangladesh, Koshed gave me a small pack of pumpkin seeds. He said, when spring comes, sow it in your garden. And you will harvest happiness. "The life of the death is placed in the memory of the living. "

Khorshed came into my life very recently through professional e-mail contacts. It was all the more shocking that he passed away so suddenly. Hopefully, there will be a moment to learn more of him as an activist for equality.

Khorshed Alam and I worked together and I remember him as a strong person with strong opinion and innovative ideas. He was a person who stood up against violence against women and humanity. I will miss him always.

A video shot a couple of years ago of Clean Clothes Campaign's close partner and friend Khorshed Alam, who died suddenly and much too young last week. It is committed, courageous people like Khorshed that make CCC such a strong and dynamic network.

I am shocked to hear about his death. He was such a committed and outstanding person, full of joy and compassion. His death is a true loss for all of us who know him and workers around the globe. It is for us now to continue what he has started and bring about more justice for workers.

I was very shocked to hear such a sad news, the death news of Khorshed Bhai. I met him for the first time at CCC Conference in Turkey. I talked for several times about the research on sandblasting in Bangladesh.
