Hasumonir Pathshala has organized a photo exhibition of Sheikh Hasina to celebrate the organization’s first founding anniversary, and to mark the recently passed 71st birthday of the prime minister.

The exhibition was held at the National Museum in Dhaka on Friday.

A total 71 hand-painted and stitched portraits of the prime minister featuring various stages of her life were displayed at the event. 

Hasumonir Pathshala President and Awami League Central Committee member Marufa Akter Popy inaugurated the program, while Parliamentary Speaker Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury and Cultural Affairs Minister Asaduzzaman Noor were present at the event. 

Artist Professor Samarjit Roy Chowdhury and National Museum Director General Md Muksodur Rahman were also present there, along with many others. 

Hasumonir Pathshala, a library and research-oriented socio-cultural institution located at 185 Bir Uttam CR Dutta Road at Hatirpool, was established on September 28 last year, the 70th birthday of Sheikh Hasina.

The name Hasumoni was chosen as it was Bangabandhu’s nickname for his daughter Sheikh Hasina.
