The newly- appointed Indian High Commissioner in Brunei Alok Amitabh Dimri called on Bangladesh High Commissioner Nahida Rahman Shumona at the Bangladesh High Commission on Thursday (April 7).
After the meeting, the Bangladesh High Commissioner invited the Indian High Commissioner for a tour inside the very special ‘Bangabandhu Corner’.
He fondly pointed at some pictures showing Bangabandhu and Shrimati Indira Gandhi together, and heaped praise on Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman for his historic and breathtaking speech on 07 March 1971 at Ramna Race Course.
The Bangladesh High Commissioner very compellingly briefed him on Bangabandhu’s inimitable leadership, struggle, dedication and contribution that led to the independence of Bangladesh in 1971.
He was overwhelmed with joy and glory to see Mahtma Gandhi and Bangabandhu together in a picture. He expressed that the efforts made to decorate, organize, prepare, and present the ‘Bangabandhu Corner’ in the way as it is, deserves only kudos.
The Indian High Commissioner, therefore, admired the Bangladesh High Commissioner for being so ingenious.
The High Commissioner-designate presented Mrs Shumona a book titled ‘Rabindranath Tagore: A Pictorial Biography’. He took part in a photo session inside ‘Bangabandhu Corner’.
The Bangladesh High Commissioner wholeheartedly thanked him for his visit and extended an invitation to attend the program which Bangladesh High Commission will organize to observe the ‘Mujibnagar Day’ on 17 April 2022.
