In a historic moment, Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman appeared before an audience virtually through holographic technology at the stage of the Joy Bangla Concert at Bangladesh Army Stadium on Saturday.

The holographic presentation was part of the celebration for March 7, honouring the landmark speech of Bangabandhu, which is considered as the de-facto declaration of the country's independence in 1971.

The Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Division made the presentation.

The presentation started with a recitation of poet Nirmalendu Goon’s poem 'Shadhinota, Ei Shobdoti Kibhabe Amader Holo', preceded by Band Lalon’s performance.

To the utter amazement of the audience, Bangabandhu appeared in a holographic form at 8:30 pm with his famous March 7 speech. The crowd experienced the Father of the Nation deliver his speech as if it were being presented live.

It ended with a poetry recitation by the Prime Minister, in holographic form, taking the level of emotion to a higher level.

The project’s creative director was Hassan Abidur Reja Jewel, and the projection manager was MN Islam Nayeem. The script was created by lyricist Zulfiqer Russell, music by Iftekharul Anam, recitation by Mahidul Islam, animation by Manik Das, and technical consultation by Tawfiq Rahman.

Jewel said the hologram will be screened once more on Mar 19 at the National Parliament premises, and again at the Information Technology International Congress next year.

The hologram will be placed at the Sheikh Lutfor Rahman and Sheikh Sayera Khatun Gallery at Bangabandhu Memorial Museum in Dhanmondi 32.
