A teacher of English Language and Literature, Jyotimoy Dutta and his spouse, freelance journalist and writer Minaxi Dutta ruminate the glorious days of Bangladesh’s liberation war and the day this new nation of 38 years was liberated on the 16th of December, 1971. They live in Kolkata, India, but they followed the war closely and celebrated along with Bangladeshis all over the world.
Jyotimoy and Minaxi Dutta are hopeful about the future of Bangladesh. Even though there are several negative sides, they feel that Bangladesh has advanced in the field of culture and writing. The writers of Bangladesh are keeping the Bangla language alive through poetry and prose. Bangladesh has embraced Rabindranath Tagore’s music and it remains in the hearts of the people.
They also feel that it is great to see a country with majority of Muslim population to be so modern with a democratic government. There is much to be hopeful about, and the Duttas feel strongly about it, even though they are residents of West Bengal, not Bangladesh.
