History

The Muktodhara edition began a little before the sale of Bangla Academy February 21, 1972 Shaheed Day, then an international language mother. Chittaranjan Saha Muktodhara took the initiative. Later, other editors joined informally. Gradually, it was formally fair and Bangladesh's most popular book.

Boi Mela has just started as a book fair, it has become a national cultural festival, where the cultural spirit of the modern Bengali nation. In addition to reserves of sales growth, Bangla Academy literature and culture organizes daily events. Thousands of people gather books and spend time in the company of books and their authors to buy with patriotic fervor. There is no participation fee. Bangladesh publishers are prepared for one year this month, a number of books to publish. The advantage is not consideration.



In 2008, 362 posts of publishers, booksellers and other organizations such as the Bangla Academy and the Nazrul Institute were created. The site of the Festival of the book and the outside is with flags, scallops and placards in conformity decorated with the spirit of Amar Ekushey. The exhibition is free of smoke and polyethylene. It encounters cultural Bangladesh, where almost every person is in preparation. Attracted by the reduced price (25%), readers are there flock. Given the importance, in general the head of government opened the fair on the first day of February. The TV channels broadcast live the opening ceremony.


"Chittaranjan Saha was born in Noakhali district in 1927. Although his family business has revolved around the clothing business, Chittaranjan had other aspirations," said Jahar Lal Saha, the current director of Muktodhara Prokashoni and brother Chittaranjan Saha.

Initially, an editor named Punthighar Prokashoni was established by Chittaranjan in his district which has become very popular for the printing of books and test papers. Later, in 1956, he moved to Dhaka with his activities. The publisher settled before and after Patuatuli Banglabazar. Punthighar Private Ltd., which sells textbooks, exercise books and reference works was created in 1967.



"When the war began in 1971, the publisher was completely burned," says Jahar Lal Saha. As of March 26 Chittaranjan Saha has left Dhaka and have sought refuge first in Agartala then crossing Calcutta. May 28, 1971, Chittaranjan organized a meeting with key officials of the life of literature in Calcutta. They decided to write and publish in injustice and war rages in East Pakistan (now Bangladesh). And that was the birth of Muktodhara Prokashoni. The first book published by the publisher was Roktakto Bangla which included writings by several authors such as Jahir Raihan late, Afternoon sofa Ahmed and has always been edited by Anisuzzaman.

"After the war, all Muktodhara Prokashoni publications were taken to Dhaka and defined the exhibition February 21, 1972," said Jahar Lal Saha. "There were 33 in all."

In 1974, books were not shown on mats. Rather, the first place was created with Muktodhara, which measures 8 feet by 8 "In 1975, four or five posts were built by different publishers and books have been sold, although officially. The number of book lovers who visit these stands Has increased progressively year after year, "added Jahar Lal Saha. In 1979, in collaboration with Bangladesh Pustok Porokasok O Bikreta somitas and the Bangla Academy authorities in the courtyard of the Bangla Academy, they held a book fair. In 1984, a guideline was made and carried out the first Amar Ekushe Grantha Mela. "This time, Maitreyi Devi came to visit our stand and even congratulated us for our work," said the smile Jahar Lal Saha.



Chittaranjan Saha is recognized nationally for his initiative and was also awarded the Ekushey Padak and Vidyasagar Puraskar in 2005, a gold medal for being the best editor in 1997 and also the Natashasha Puraskar in 1988.

Jahar Lal Saha has expressed the need to build a suitable library and research center with food stands or a cafe near the Bangla Academy fence. "This would help improve the love of people and the experience of reading books," he said.

Until then, Muktodhara Prokashoni has published more than 2,000 books. They also took the initiative to publish books written specifically for young minds and managed to publish 300. With the organization of book fairs across the country, Muktodhara Prokashoni took a healthy advantage to encourage children and young people to develop the habit of reading. It also encourages the authorities to establish libraries in the country. Since 1974, the publisher exports books abroad.

Commemorating the Language Struggle

The tension was built slowly in 1948, Mohammed Ali Jinnah, during a meeting at the University of Dhaka, said that only Urdu would be the official language of Pakistan. Ignoring the language spoken by about 60% of the population, the governor shook the feelings of many Bengalis, some of them, of course, pink rebel against repression. 1950 students from various universities, including the University of Dhaka and Jagannath University, refused to support the State Language Action Committee and trained with Bangla is one of the official languages of Pakistan. What began as an initiative of a few students, he accelerated quickly connected that teachers, lawyers and diplomats. The rebel group, composed mainly of young students decided to take action in February 1952 to present a protest against the East Bengal Legislative Assembly of the Organization for the Prime Minister Nurul Amin. Singing the now famous word "rashtrobhasha chai" bracelet, the protest ammunition was reached halfway.



The life of these turnovers that day were not in vain. And against social injustice, especially for something as central and monumental as recognizing a language spoken by millions of people, is an act that must be honored timeless. And it is from the day that honored the rebellious language were killed. Formerly known as the day Shaheed announced on February 21, it was a day to commemorate the struggle of the language. The United Nations on 21 February as International Mother Language Day recognized on 16 May 2009, "the preservation and protection of all languages, to promote the use of the peoples of the world." According to the languages Of the United Nations are the most powerful tools for the preservation and development of our tangible and intangible heritage.

Perhaps the best way to preserve the Bengali heritage of the Bengali language and to develop, we will not only remember the martyrs of social justice a month more than 60 years, but the literary landscape of the language to give Bengalis celebrate books. Yes, this was the idea of a book fair in 1972, when publisher Muktodhara created a small shop in front of Bangladesh rebranding Ekushey Academy February. As the idea of great interest years after the recovery recovered, as well as other publishing houses and in 1978, resumed Bangla Academy. In 1984, the Book Fair was a matter of a month and became known as Amar Ekushey Grantha Mela.

"This is perhaps the longest exhibition book in the world," said Shamsuzamman Khan, head of the Bangla Academy, at the opening of this year Ekushey Boi Mela.

However, the death of Humayun Ahmed contemporary writers has left a persistent gulf between his thousands of fans, especially young people. The famous publisher, Annesha, who published a series of legendary writers of books, including the famous Himu series, is still missing the author largely lacking. Between a strong demand for new books, Humayun Ahmed is increasingly in demand. New readers are always standing to find the choice of the many books written by the writer in his career written by 30 years of writers.

In the midst of the great demand for novels, poems and short stories, research publications have also gained a great interest this year.

The most popular search publications are Bangladesh Pocket Statistics 2013, the Statistical Yearbook 2013 published by the Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics Bangladesh.
