The pleasures of victory come with a price. The Liberation War of 1971 was a watershed moment, not only in the history of Bangladesh, but the entire subcontinent, which at that time, was almost one-eighth of all humanity!
How do we remember victory day, 1971? How do we remember the plight of the near 10 million people who fled to neighbouring countries, fearing death and carnage? And how do we live our times in the present, as conscious citizens of a country that will soon celebrate its golden anniversary?
This week, we ask these poignant questions, and try to find answers, while we bask in the warmth of freedom. This week, Star Lifestyle is all about appreciating the patriotic hues and celebrating freedom in the air.
