bKash distributes graphic novel 'Mujib' to 55 schools in Sylhet

     DHAKA, Dec 6, 2021 (BSS) - After the successful distribution of graphic 
novel 'Mujib' in Dhaka, Rajshahi, Barishal and Mymensingh, now bKash has 
distributed 2200 copies of the graphic novel to 55 schools in Sylhet to 
inspire the students with the ideals of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu 
Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. 

     Marking Bangabandhu's birth centenary and the golden jubilee of 
Bangladesh's independence, bKash has taken the initiative of distributing 
20,000 copies of graphic novel 'Mujib' to 500 schools across the country, 
said a press release.

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

     Once the next editions of the graphic novel are published, bKash will 
further expand this program to more schools along with the existing ones.

     Dr Muhammad Mosharrof Hossain, Divisional Commissioner (Additional 
Secretary) of Sylhet and Major General Sheikh Md Monirul Islam (retd), Chief 
External and Corporate Affairs Officer of bKash, today handed over the books 
to the school representatives at Kazi Nazrul Auditorium, Sylhet. 

     Renowned cultural personality and Bishwo Shahitto Kendro Trustee Abdun 
Noor Tushar presided over the program.

     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.

     Through this event, 5 sets of the graphic novel have been given to each 
of the 55 schools of Sylhet. As a result, 40 students will get the 
opportunity to read the book from a school library at the same time.

     Dr Muhammad Mosharrof Hossain, Divisional Commissioner of Sylhet, said, 
"Bangabandhu has worked and protested for the welfare of the people since the 
very beginning of his childhood. He has struggled all through his life and 
had profound love for the land and the people. 'Mujib' novel will be easily 
understood by children and they will be able to uphold the spirit of 
Bangabandhu's life among themselves. Thanks to bKash and Bishwo Shahitto 
Kendro for this great initiative." Major General Sheikh Md Monirul Islam 
(retd), Chief External & Corporate Affairs Officer of bKash, said, "When 
Bangladesh is celebrating its golden jubilee of independence, we have taken 
this initiative of bringing Bangabandhu, the architect of Bangladesh's 
independence, closer to the students. The graphic novel with its simple 
dialogue and illustration will create an opportunity for the students to know 
about the sacrifices and struggles of Bangabandhu, which will inspire them to 
love their country and the people in future".

     Bishwo Shahitto Kendro Trustee Abdun Noor Tushar said, "The Bengali 
Nation has a great leader like Bangabandhu. Knowing Bangabandhu means, 
knowing the history of Bangladesh's emergence. Such initiatives need to be 
continued to create an opportunity to uphold the spirit of Bangabandhu and 
Bangladesh in the consciousness of present and future generations."

     The relationship of bKash with book donation is remarkable from its 
inception. As a responsible corporate organization of the country, bKash has 
been associated with BSK since 2014 to cultivate the habit of reading books 
among the next generation. bKash has distributed 253,600 books among students 
from 2,900 educational institutions which benefited 2.6 million readers till
