Our children are the future of Bangladesh. They are to be properly nourished and educated so that in future they lead the country towards the long-cherished destination, for which our valiant freedom fighters sacrificed their lives. The children should be brought up to shoulder the responsibility of materialising their dream, where the people, irrespective of caste, creed, race or colour, will enjoy their rights.
Kochipata is a children juvenile magazine, edited and published by Aleya Bagum Alo. It started since 2010 and its formal publication started with registration in 2017. A competent editor and publisher Aleya Bagum Alo, in addition to her literary career, is deeply attached with child psychology. She is a friend of the underprivileged and handicapped. She has the mission: “We will proceed forward taking all children” Her positive approach and zeal to usher a new era for our budding generation encourages the creativity of children.
The present number Kochi Pata March 2018 (year 2nd : Number 1) inherits the previous numbers in spirit and subjects. Very much colourful and attractive (with four colour, art paper) it has the oath to uphold our glorious history and heritage, our identity as a free nation-our Language Movement, War of liberation, sacrifices of our martyrs, our religious and cultural heritage.
