Centre for Research & Information (CRI) is set to launch WhiteBoard, a magazine objectively and comprehensively analysing and narrating the policies in Bangladesh, tomorrow.
The first issue will be on Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman's policies that guided the nation's future course of advancement.
Radwan Mujib Siddiq, the editor-in-chief of the magazine and grandson of Bangabandhu, will launch it.
The unveiling of this chapter is a tribute to the Father of the Nation on his birth centenary and the magazine will be a lighthouse for policymakers who will be able to model their policies on his vision, said CRI today.
A brief and interactive "smart web-launch", attended by Radwan Mujib Siddiq, will be conducted at 6pm tomorrow as part of the launching ceremony.
Members of the advisory board are set to be part of the launch as well.
Previously scheduled for March, the month of Bangabandhu's birth, the launch was deferred due to the Covid-19 pandemic that took a toll on the entire planet.
As revealed by CRI sources, the first issue will debunk the myths about Bangabandhu's administration -- created and disseminated following the assassination of Bangabandhu and 16 of his family members in 1975.
The policies and methodologies of Bangabandhu, often lost under the weight of his other charismatic accomplishments such as fiery speeches and pro-liberation leadership, do deserve a chance to be heard by modern policymakers, youths.
All the content developers of this magazine are endowed with a track record of possessing ample knowledge of the vision.
There are many developments the youths can see today but what they don't know is that the seed of those developments was sown and nurtured by Bangabandhu and those futuristic policies will come alive through the pages of this magazine.
This initiative will complement other efforts of the CRI such as the launching of "Mujib", a graphic novel based on the life and vision of young Mujib which is the first of its kind in Bangladesh in terms of comic-style narration on the life of a historical figure.
The future editions of WhiteBoard will delve into crucial matters of national policymaking from an angle that usual advocacy groups and donor agencies have left void.
"We are launching WhiteBoard because we believe we will bring in new ideas into the policy-sphere of our country; the quality of our magazine should speak for itself," said Syed Mafiz Kamal, co-editor, WhiteBoard.
