Beautiful article.
Thanks Tehsin bhai.

Sadly (but true) reminds me that December is coming soon.
Its only around March, December that this movement grows strong among us, some noises are made and then it gets forgotten the whole year around.

We will never be unified and succeed as a country till this people are still alive and roaming free.

Wow Wow Wow!
Let me refresh my previous statement.
Beautifully written article with a twist.

Going thru the pictures, i cant help but notice the word "India" mentioned 9/10 times, with pictures linking to india.

Not that i am ever going to deny the huge role they played in our Independence War, but if i was beginner in this subject, i'd think it was all about india!

...And the last picture that of Sheikh Mujib, the caption ends with a sad truth, but could have been written otherwise.

i felt the pictures captions were undermining our image.

I agree about the pictures. While they bore the truth, they truly DO NOT represent the whole truth. Our own struggles, the freedom fighters are absent from this presentation and without them, this war would have been over in weeks.

with the best will in the world, we underplay the importance of india in the struggle for independence. i spent the first twelve years of my life in dhaka. my family had actively taken part in the armed struggle through various means. however, living in bangladesh i always got the impression that it was the brave freedom fighters who defeated the mighty pakistani army without any extraneous help. it had only been since i have lived abroad that the contributiion of india had been brought to my attention,
