UNB, Dhaka :
The government is informing people about the life and career of Bangladesh's founding father Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman at the Dhaka International Trade Fair.
A pavilion, 'Bangabandhu Bangladesh', is showcasing 139 photos, depicting his journey from childhood to becoming the nation's independence hero.
Bangabandhu was born in Gopalganj's Tungipara on March 17, 1920. January 10 marks his Homecoming Day, when he returned to independent Bangladesh in 1972, after 290 days of captivity in Pakistan. Videos and various newspaper articles before and during his tenure in office on issues, including international agreements, Liberation War and his time in prison, are also being showcased.
"The videos are meant to help everyone learn about Bangabandhu's story," Murshidel Hoque, in-charge of the pavilion, told UNB.
There were some books at the pavilion as well - and only a selected few were on sale. Apart from them, photos highlighting Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's development activities have been put up outside the pavilion, which can be found on the right side after entering through the fair's main gate.
Visitors lauded the initiative. "It helps children learn about the country's history, the Liberation War and our greatest political leader," said Talib Hossain, who was visiting the fair with his sister and his two sons. Mohammad Saifuzzaman, a university student, said he learned some new things. "We don't know much about Bangabandhu yet. He was a great leader and an honest person. Such exhibition will help us know more," he said.
Online ticketing For the first time, visitors are getting online ticketing advantage.
An adult's ticket costs Tk 30 and a child's Tk 20. One has to pay an extra Tk 2.3 as online purchase charge.
Imran Mahmud Shamim, CEO of Vallicon digital software firm, said they started the online ticketing service to reduce hassles.
Deputy Secretary of the Export Promotion Bureau (EPB) Mohammad Abdur Rouf told UNB they had prepared an online ticketing system in 2017.
"We tried to launch it earlier but failed. We hope visitors won't have any problem in purchasing tickets this time," he said. EPB and Commerce Ministry have jointly organised the month-long annual fair.
