Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) unveiled two graffiti at Gulshan 2 DCC market in the capital recently to recognize the frontline workers for rendering essential services amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

The initiative was in association with the Gulshan Society, Cartoon People and Aqua Paints, said a press release.

The two wall paintings resemble ‘Aparajeyo Bangla’ sculpture, situated on Dhaka University campus and a famous photograph of Naib Uddin Ahmed taken during our Liberation War in 1971, the release added.

Unveiling the graffiti, DNCC Mayor Atiqul Islam said, “We continue our all-out efforts in the battle against COVID-19 and also against dengue. In this fight everyone has a role to play. I truly acknowledge the contributions of those who are at the forefront, bravely fighting Covid-19.”

UNDP Resident Representative Sudipto Mukerjee in his statement said, “While the coronavirus pandemic has affected life for nearly everyone, frontline workers are fearlessly working to protect us and provide us with essential services.”

Gulshan Society and Aqua Paints took different initiatives to keep the area safe by disinfecting key points including markets, pharmacies, and continuously providing food to low income groups and daily wage earners such as rickshaw drivers.

Shayaan Seraj, on behalf of both Gulshan Society and Aqua Paints, appreciated the mayor’s enthusiasm, and urged all local communities and private organizations to come forward and continue motivating the frontline fighters.

Young cartoonist Morshed Mishu, who was also on the list of Forbes 2019, 30 Under 30 Asia, led the painting, on behalf of The Cartoon People.
