"Aamar bhai-er rokte rangano ekushey February
Aami ki bhulte paari?"
Drenched in the blood of my brethren,
The 21st of February -
Carven forever in my memory.
International Mother Language Day, as adopted by the UNESCO in 1999.
1952, Bangladesh. Protesting the right to express oneself in the mother tongue. And the police firing.
As always, I'm having one of my 'proud to be Bangalee' surges.
