BIDS Book Stall at the Amar Ekushey Boi-Mela 2021
BIDS set up a book stall in the Bangla Academy premises this year too as part of the annual "Boi-Mela" held in commemoration of the Martyrs of the language movement of 1952. The mela draws a number of book lovers, poets, academics, novelists and writers along with students and members of the general public. It is an occasion for BIDS to build stronger links with the broader community by making our publications accessible to all.
Apart from the regular publications like The Bangladesh Development Studies (BDS), Bangladesh Unnayan Samikkhaya, Research Reports, Monographs, REF Study Series, and so on; a special book was made available titled "Readings in Bangladesh Development" in two volumes in this book fair. These commemorative volumes were conceived as a dedication to the memory of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, Father of the Nation, whose birth centenary is being nationally celebrated. The authors and contributors here are the best in the field of development studies that Bangladesh has produced. On this occasion, we have brought some of the most brilliant minds together under 'one roof' as it were, in creating the ultimate intellectual tribute to Bangabandhu that BIDS could offer.
