Bangabandhu remains alive digitally
Our Father of the Nation, our beloved Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman remains alive in technology domains,through the efforts of our young generation's digital developments.
Bangladeshi young people have engaged themselves in different initiatives including the creation of mobile software, graphic novels and various other content
on the lifeline and ideology of Bangabandhu, the liberator of Bangladesh in the digital realm.
First, the Centre for Research and Information (CRI), a research organization, launched a much loved and critically acclaimed graphic novel series titled 'Mujib' in 2015 to familiarize teenagers with life of Bangabandhu and history of the nation,
'Mujib' tells the tale of how Bangabandhu began writing his autobiography, ranging from the stories of his birth, childhood to getting a pair of spectacles and his first jail term. The graphic novel series presents the political activism, successes and political wisdom of Bangabandhu in a youth-friendly manner.
Recently, Bangladesh Computer Council (BCC) and tech agency Mighty Byte signed an agreement to develop a website named mujib100.gov.bd on the occasion of a century since the birth of the Father of the Nation.
The ICT division has also arranged a competition for preparing an attractive logo for the website. "Anyone can participate in the competition by submitting their ideas by August 31", officials said.
State Minister Zunaid Ahmed Palak said the Mujib100 website will be one of the main features in celebration of 'Mujib Year 2020'.
Furthermore, The Multimedia Content and Communication (MCC), a Bangladeshi Software company, developed the mobile application - Bangabandhu - with technical support from Information and Communication Technology division.
"We're planning to develop a messenger bot with the application to attract the youth generation who mostly stay on messenger. I hope it will be a great opportunity to spread the ideology of Bangabandhu among the young generation," Mashrur said while talking to Daily Observer.
Anyone can watch all the important speeches of Bangabandhu on the Speech Menu and the Declaration of Independence is also available on the app. The app also contains 113 rare pictures featuring the life and work of Bangabandhu.
