This week's program commemorated the - 'Language Martyrs Day' - to be celebrated this week on 21st February in Canberra, Australia and around the globe. The day is also celebrated as the 'International Mother Language Day' in recognition of the sacrifice of the Bangla Language Movement martyrs in 1952 - the event that culminated the rise of Bangla nationhood and ultimately the independence of Bangladesh. The program is beautifully composed with the history, motivating songs and a poem to mark the occasion. The poem 'matribhumir jonno' was authored by Srijon Sen. This week's program was produced and presented by Shampa Barua.
