The national anthem ‘Amar Sonar Bangla’, written by Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore, will be sung simultaneously across the country and Bangladesh missions abroad on March 26, marking the Independence Day.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will lead the nation to sing the national anthem at Bangabandhu National Stadium on that day, said a Press Information Department (PID) handout on Tuesday.

Later, prizes will be distributed among the winning teams of the national anthem competition, which was held from March 10 till March 18.

Educational institutions associated with the Bangladesh missions abroad will participate in singing the national anthem simultaneously with the country or in their convenient time on the day.
