DLF shows the way forward
The Dhaka Lit Fest is coming to a close, and with it, it has shown Dhaka’s vibrant cultural scene to the world. Despite the myriad problems the people of this country face, an event like DLF is a clear reminder of what we are capable of if we come together, talk together, and work together. We have seen the likes of Booker Prize winning author Ben Okri speak of the power of perception and the price we pay for creativity. We heard Syrian poet Adonis deliberate on the problem with on the non-separation of religion and politics in the Middle East. And we listened as the most renowned artists of our country, from Cultural Affairs Minister Asaduzzaman Noor to poet Kaiser Haq, among many others, speak of the importance of our mother tongue, and continuing to tell stories. The event will also announce the DSC South Asian Literary Prize, a true honour, which will be bestowed today, on the last day of the event. This was, indeed, an event like no other. From topics ranging from religion and politics to the importance of words, the Dhaka Lit Fest has lit the path towards a more enlightened Bangladesh, and a more learned generation. We at the Dhaka Tribune are proud to have supported the event since its very inception, and are truly grateful to all the people who have come together to make this event a reality. The DLF continues to show us that diversity should be celebrated and that dialogue and discussion are crucial for progress. We hope those who joined us will return next year, and for many more years to come.
