As part of distributing 20,000 copies of graphic novel ‘Mujib’, bKash has distributed the graphic novel to the students of 40 schools in Barishal division to inspire them with the ideals of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

Marking Bangabandhu’s birth centenary and the golden jubilee of Bangladesh’s independence, the mobile financial services provider has taken this initiative of distributing graphic novel to 500 schools across the country, said a press release.

With the support of bKash, Bishwo Shahitto Kendro (BSK) has been distributing the graphic novel ‘Mujib’ which is published by Center for Research and Information (CRI) based on Bangabandhu’s autobiography ‘Oshomapto Attojiboni’ (‘The Unfinished Memoirs’).

BSK is an organisation well known for enlightening minds. After the publication of next editions of the graphic novel, bKash will further expand the programme to more schools along with the existing ones.

Jashim Uddin Haider, Deputy Commissioner of Barishal and Humayun Kabir, Head of Regulatory & Corporate Affairs of bKash, handed over the books to the school representatives at Shilpakala Academy Auditorium in Barishal on Tuesday.

Renowned cultural personality, Khairul Alam Sabuj presided over the event. Bahauddin Golap, Coordinator of Barisal Study Circle of BSK and Deputy Registrar of Barishal University, was also present.

The graphic novel ‘Mujib’ depicts the experiences of Bangabandhu’s childhood, adolescence and social and political activities in a format suitable for both children and adolescents with a vibrant combination of dialogues, stories and illustrations. Graphic novel ‘Mujib’ will give the school students of Barishal an opportunity to know more about Bangabandhu.

Through this event, five sets of the graphic novel have been given to each of the 40 schools of Barishal, which means a total of 1600 books have been distributed. As a result, 40 students will get the opportunity to read the book from a school library at the same time. Earlier, 3,800 copies of the graphic novel have been distributed to 95 schools of Dhaka and Rajshahi division.
