The university campus has been decorated for the occasion that will feature concerts, fireworks, and a DUJA exhibition  

Dhaka University (DU) is ready to celebrate the 48th Victory Day; its campus is the site of much festivity and enthusiasm, plus tributes are being paid to the 1971 war heroes.

The DU authorities, Teacher-Student Centre (TSC), and all socio-cultural-based organizations have chalked out various events to mark the day on Sunday.

Slogan 71, a TSC-based cultural student organization, will hold a dazzling fireworks display—in front of the Anti-Terrorism Raju Memorial Sculpture—in the early hours of Victory Day, as it has done  in previous years. Slogan 71 will also hold  three-day-long events starting from  Martyred Intellectuals Day on December 14. 

The TSC area will be alive  with music as a number of university- based bands will perform on the stage, one by one, early on Victory Day. They will also play patriotic songs.

The Dhaka University Film Society (DUFS) will release 48 fanush (paper lanterns) illuminating the night sky to mark 48th Victory Day.

In the morning, teachers and students of DU, led by Vice Chancellor Prof Akhtaruzzaman, will place wreaths at the National Memorial in Savar. 

Like in previous years, the Dhaka University Journalists’ Association (DUJA) will hold a day-long exhibition of the then newspaper articles about the 1971 war, titled “Ekti Manchitrer Jonmo” (Birth of a Map), inside the TSC.

To mark the day, Sammilita Sangskritik Jote, an alliance of cultural organizations, will organize a cultural event.

The university campus has already been decorated with colorful lights; including on the: Arts building, TSC, Curzon Hall, Bijoy Ekattor Hall, and so on. 

Martyred Intellectuals Day celebration   

DU hoisted black flags on its major buildings—around 6:15am on December 14—marking Martyred Intellectuals Day. Led by the DU VC, teachers, students, and staff placed wreaths at the tombs of intellectuals, at DU’s central mosque near Jagannath hall. 

Later, they placed wreaths at the Mirpur Shaheed Buddhijibi Koborsthan (Martyred Intellectuals Memorial in Mirpur area) in tribute to the martyrs.

A discussion program was also held at the TSC auditorium, around 11am, and a prayer session was also held for the departed soul of martyrs.
