Last year I visited in The Ekushey Boi Mela

By Laily Jahan Meghla

In Bangladesh we celebrate many fairs. Such as: fair on Pohela Boishakh, Poush Mela, Trade fair, Ekushey Boi Mela etc. We celebrate these once in every year.

21st February is our Shahid Dibosh. We celebrate Ekushey Boi Mela in the whole month of February in every year. This fair is held in Bangla Academy. It starts on 1st February for one month in every year to remind us the struggle and sacrifice for the language of Bangla. Every year the fair is organized by Bangla Academy.

A book fair is an attractive fair, where different types of books are displayed and sold. Many new books of many writers are published in every year in this fair. Now a day it has become very popular.

Every year I try to visit this book fair. Last year I visited in this fair with some of my friends. When I entered through the main gate of the fair I found a different environment.

The fair was very crowded. Men, children and women of all ages and classes gathered there. We had to stand for a large line to get entry in the fair.

I found many small and big stalls and many sorts of books and CDs on dramas, children’s books, reference books, poetry books, novels etc in the fair. The stalls were occupied by different publishers.

We visited all the stalls. I bought some of my favorite writers’ books. In the evening poets, novelists, writers came to visit in the fair. Seminars and cultural programs were also held in the fair.

Book fair is very important because it upgrades our thoughts and expands our knowledge. I was very delighted visiting such a fair like this and gathered some new experiences.
