Staff Reporter

The publication ceremony followed by a discussion meeting on the book “Bangabandhur Deshey” (In the land of Bangabandhu) of writer-journalist Deepak Chowdhry was organised at the Nasrul Hamid Auditorium of Dhaka Reporters’ Unity in the city on Monday.

Chaired by the author, the function was attended by Planning Minister MA Mannan as the chief guest while state minister for shipping Khalid Mahmud Chowdhury and Prof Dr Fahim Hasan Shahed attended it as the special guests.

The key-note paper of the ceremony was presented by senior news caster Tuhinoor Sultana while eminent journalist Abul Hossain conducted the publication ceremony.

In his address, Planning Minister MA Mannan said, “I have gone through Deepak Chowdhury’s book, which significantly highlighted many facets of the life & struggle of Bangabandhu for his people. It’s a rare book full of information on Bangabandhu. I would like to request the author to write more such books on Bangabandhu, who has liberated a country from years of subjugation.”

In his reaction, writer of the book Deepak Chowdhury said that he got inspiration to write such a book while residing in a hotel in Chennai in India. “When an unknown man asked me about my country of origin & my nature of work, I replied that I am a writer-cum-journalist from Bangladesh. He then said, “U are a citizen of the land of Bangabandhu !”

“That utterance of his awakened me as to why he did mention the land of Bangabandhu instead of Bangladesh. Later, I came to know that he was a member of the Allied Force (Mitra Bahini), who fought in our war of liberation in 1971. That incident also was an inspiration to write a book on the chequered political life, long struggle & sacrifices of Bangabandhu for his people as well as the magical success story in the running the state affairs by his distinguished daughter Sheikh Hasina.

Now, it’s up to you the readers to decide whether I could satisfy your reading pleasures,” the writer added.
