The Month of March & Our Independence Day

The history of independence of Bangladesh is a complex web of occurrences happening for a really long period of time. Although the British departing from the Sub-continent and the birth of Pakistan created a new ray of hope among the people of then East Bengal, they soon started to understand that the dream of independence was still a farfetched one. Even before the birth of Pakistan, the people of Bengal started to feel that the intentions of the Pakistani rulers were to suppress them. In the early stages, prior to the partition of British India, there were proposals of separate Muslim majority countries in the eastern and northwestern regions of British India in the Lahore Resolution. Hussain Shaheed Suhrawardy proposed the creation of “sovereign Bangla”, but proposal was rejected by the colonial leaders. All these resulted in the creation of East and West Pakistan, two landmass situated 22,000 kilometers apart, but a single country only because of the religious similarity of the population. As a result, the people of the then East Bengal was deprived of their promised independence.

Bangla Channel 2019 My Maiden Open-Water Swimming Success

When you stand near the shore of the Naf river, it’s always nerve-wracking. There’s a fear in your eyes, the fear of the unknown. You are about to dance with the sea, hoping and praying that the Bay of Bengal plays nice with you. The Bangla Channel awaits and you can never have any bigger challenge than this in our country right now.

Dear Readers,

It is my honour to present you the Travelogue in this month of our glorifying independence. I would like to pay our sincere respect to the great freedom fighters who sacrificed their life to bring our much cherished independence. This beautiful Bangladesh would not have been beautiful without their bravery and sacrifice. 

In this issue, we featured the Famous Mymensingh Zamiders. We also covered Bangla Channel; the adventure of swimming between Teknaf to St Martin Island. Dinazpur; a northern district of Bangladesh has been featured in this issue. 

I want to conclude by signing our national anthem:

Amar shonar bangla.....

 

Happy reading.

Kind regards

Ferdous Mottakin
