Ekushey Boi Mela

The highlight of February, a month of devotion to the Bangla language, is experiencing the annual 'Ekushey Boi Mela' at Bangla Academy and around Suhrawardy Uddan. It's a place where writers, readers, and publishers interact in a celebration of the Bangla language and culture. Nowadays, young people are so fond of the book fair that they go there in groups simply to hang out or buy books and meet writers to take a selfie. Children also come to the fair along with parents and family members to see picture books, storybooks and comics. The fair particularly promotes literature adhering to our culture and history—the liberation war and our struggle to speak our own language and win independence.
