Marking the birth centenary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, lots of programmes have been organised by the government and multifarious organisations throughout the country. But the latest one organised by the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) in association with the Bashundhara Group was a special surprise for all. It was a concert, a great way to celebrate the Mujib Year. Oscar-winning Indian musician AR Rahman was the life of 'Cricket Celebrates Mujib 100' concert, and centre of the event graced by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina as the chief guest. Held at the capital's Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium, the concert was a huge boost for the nation as the Indian composer, singer-songwriter, and music producer paid glowing tributes to Bangabandhu and his creation-Bangladesh by rendering two songs that he composed on the occasion of Bangabandhu’s birth centenary. We wish him health and happiness for his tributes to Bangabandhu and Bangladesh.
By orgnising the concert, the BCB has created an opportunity to show the grateful nation's appreciation for its leader, Bangabandhu, also the greatest Bengalee of all times. The PM enjoyed the entire programme. We thank BCB and also take the opportunity to thank the Bashundhara Group, the country's largest business conglomerate, for its generosity in organising a different type of concert that featured an evening of music and entertainment where a stadium-packed crowd enjoyed to their heart's content. Walton Group and Orion Group also deserve praise for providing sponsorship in different capacities.
