An Independence Day like never before

Today is Bangladesh's 49th Independence Day.

On this day in 1971, the country's nine-month-long struggle for independence began, ending in victory on December 16. The national holiday is generally celebrated by people all over the country, but this year, an uncharacteristic silence has fallen over the nation as Independence Day falls during the government-ordered 10-day closure to combat coronavirus.

The stories of the Liberation War live on in every household, though. This year, sit in the comfort of your home, reminisce those stories, and read real accounts, analyses, and more.
