Over a hundred new books on the Father of the Nation, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, have been published for Amar Ekushey Book Fair 2020.

A total of 130 books on Bangabandhu, spanning multiple genres including poetry, research, liberation war, essay, adventure novel, and kids’ books, hit this year’s book fair as of February 24, the 23rd day of the fair, ahead of his birth centenary.

Of them, only 20 books cost over Tk500, the most expensive one selling for Tk2600. The other 110 titles cost between Tk50 to Tk500.

Kishore Bangla, edited by Mir Mosharraf Hossain, is the most inexpensive one priced at Tk50, while Shatabdir Bangabandhu by Md Hannan, published by Agami Publications, is the most expensive one priced at Tk2600. 

Several books were published on the Bengali legend’s political career, his prison life, his diplomatic thoughts, and friendships.

Bangla Academy published 26 new titles on Bangabandhu’s life and political views, including Bangabandhur Andolon Koushol O Hartal (Bangabandhu’s method of Protest and Strike) .

“Amar Dekha Naya Chin” (The New China I Saw), the third book authored by Father of the Nation, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, was published by Bangla Academy and unveiled at this fair by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

At least 4 titles were published on Bangabandhu’s speeches by various publishers.

Written by Md Mahbubur Rahman and published by Agami Publications, Islam Prosare Bangabandhu Ebong Sheikh Hasina (Bangabandhu and Sheikh Hasina’s Role in Spreading Islam) reflects his thoughts about religion.

Ishtiaq Ahmed, a student of the Banking and Insurance Department of Dhaka University, told this correspondent: “It is appropriate that these many titles are being published on Bangabandhu. But we have to be careful of opportunistic people so that the spirit of Bangabandhu does not become a business commodity.”

There is a “Bangabandhu Path,” set up on the book fair premises, featuring books written by and on Bangabandhu. It has seating arrangements for readers and visitors, where they can read as many books on the Father of the Nation as they like.
