It will represent 3 inter-connected events that shaped the identity of modern Bangladesh – the birth centenary of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the 50th anniversary of Bangladesh's independence, and the 100th anniversary of publication of Nazrul Islam's iconic "Bidrohi", the poem that lit the flames of Bengali renaissance.
"This year is indeed a milestone for us as a nation," shares Sadya Afreen Mallick. "The celebrations would be grand and so will be our effort."
