Long live Bangladesh



THE celebration of Victory Day this year was different. At one point, I was worried that this year’s celebration of Victory Day might be marred by political instability. However, I was glad to be proved wrong. People willingly participated in various events and celebrated Victory Day amid much enthusiasm.
This year is also significant for the attempts at breaking two Guinness world records — by creating the world’s largest human flag with participants holding up green and red cards to represent the Bangladeshi standard and with more than three lakh people singing the national anthem — on Victory Day.
The largest human flag programme was done with the assistance of the army and sponsored by the telecom operator Robi. The national anthem singing in chorus was organised by Ganajagaran Mancha and the Sector Commanders’ Forum.
Both the programmes witnessed a huge turnout of people, irrespective of their caste and creed. Such initiatives would not have been possible without the presence and participation of people at large. All the credit goes to the organisers, sponsors, crew, and people for the programmes.
Long live Bangladesh!
