bangabandhu sheikh mujibur rahman

An image of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman depicted with paddy on a 100-bigha crop field in Balenda area of Bogura’s Sherpur upazila. Organised by National AgriCare, a private company, and guided by 100 students, 100 female farmers gave the field this shape, in celebration of the Father of the Nation’s birth centenary. This is also an attempt to secure a spot in the Guinness World Records for “the largest crop field mosaic (image)”, said the organisers. Photo: Mostafa Shabuj

Spring is the season of rebirth and vitality. After the cold months of winter, spring comes in new leaves, warmth, and sunshine, and of course, the bright red of newly blossomed Shimul flowers. This photo was taken yesterday from Barishal’s Gaurnadi upazila. Photo: Titu Das
