Ekushey Book Fair , the national book fair of Bangladesh takes place every year in the month of February, commemorating the valor of the Martyrs of Language Movement, 1952. Bangla Academy premises and Suhrawardy udyan are the venues.
Coming with astounding moral showcase, the greatness,pride & dignity of Bengali race are displayed with jaw dropping fashion.
& it ends with the labor of underpaid 5-6 years old kids.
I hope the readers get the gist of the event in this short description.
People love to throw junks at random and make the environment filthy in this country, Book fair is no exception.
The materials required to prepare the stalls are reusable & can be used in several consecutive years. Yet, the humble publishers invest weird amount of capital in this effort. It’s the book buyers who are ripped of in the process.
Suhrawardy Udyan is a popular place to hang out & make out. During book fair, couples can hang around easily than other times of the year.
The temporary lampposts are being diassembled.
The publishers who publish books protesting child labor, human rights use child labors to get rid of the temporary stalls. Child labor is cheap & it’s good for the enlargement of pocket you know…
The scene that sums up the level of moral & dignity these publishers & writers possess.
