  • Published at 09:15 pm February 20th, 2020

The nation prepares to pay tribute to the martyrs of the historic 1952 Language Movement with the clock striking 12:01am Friday marking 'Amar Ekushey,' the Language Martyrs Day and International Mother Language Day. Artists and students flock to the Central Shaheed Minar area yesterday to paint portraits on walls and caricatures on roads. Two painted faces of women on red walls near the Shaheed Minar bear the words ‘bhasha’ and ‘shodesh.’ The walls adorning images of revolution evoke the memory of the souls lost in the Language Movement.
