We want to present the story of these patriots to the younger generation. We want to celebrate the 50th Independence Day with someone who truly loves the country and who has worked or is working for the welfare of the country. This is a wonderful opportunity to share stories of people who have done something good for the community from their respective positions. So start writing, tell us their stories, and let us honor them on the 50th Independence Day of Bangladesh.”
