A three-day “Pran Chinigura Rice Nabanna Utsab” will kick off at Rabindra Sarobar in Dhaka from tomorrow from 8:00am to 8:00pm.
“We are losing many traditional festivals from our culture in the course of time,” said Mohammad Shahan Shah Azad, chief operating officer of Banga Millers Ltd, a subsidiary of Pran-RFL Group, yesterday.
“Pran Chinigura Rice is sponsoring the Nabanna Utsab in a bid to bring the traditional celebrations into the urban sphere,” he told a press conference at a hotel in Dhaka.
A total of 30 stalls will display various traditional cakes while shows will be presented involving traditional music, stick fighting and dance, puppet show, merry-go-round, Punthi recitals, bioscope, palanquin and monkey dance.
Popular singers including Indra Mohan Rajbongshi, Chisty Baul and Fakir Shahabuddin will also perform.
