Bangla language

In 1952, the Language Movement served as a platform for Bengali nationalism. Students sacrificed their lives for their mother language, Bangla. For the first time in world history a country defined itself by its language and culture.
In 2000, UNESCO declared 21st February as the International Mother Language Day. Roads, trees and other places near monuments are ornamented with language elements.
