With the support of bKash, Bishwo Shahitto Kendro (BSK) has been distributing the graphic novel ‘Mujib’ which is published by Center for Research and Information (CRI) based on Bangabandhu's autobiography ‘Oshomapto Attojiboni’ (‘The Unfinished Memoirs’).

BSK is an organisation well known for enlightening minds. After the publication of next editions of the graphic novel, bKash will further expand the programme to more schools along with the existing ones.

Jashim Uddin Haider, Deputy Commissioner of Barishal and Humayun Kabir, Head of Regulatory and Corporate Affairs of bKash, handed over the books to the school representatives at Shilpakala Academy Auditorium in Barishal on Tuesday.

Renowned cultural personality, Khairul Alam Sabuj presided over the event. Bahauddin Golap, Coordinator of Barishal Study Circle of BSK and Deputy Registrar of Barishal University was also present.

The graphic novel 'Mujib' depicts the experiences of Bangabandhu's childhood, adolescence and social and political activities in a format suitable for both children and adolescents with a vibrant combination of dialogues, stories and illustrations.

Graphic novel ‘Mujib’ will give the school students of Barishal an opportunity to know more about Bangabandhu.
