Eid, Nazrul Jayanti celebrated on digital platform

Solidarity Concert for Ranesh orchestrated by Bangladeshi artistes from different countries

Rafi Ahmed: Eid was different this year, as is life and lifestyle these days. Eid

programmes consist of a big part of our plans, and people were prepared to miss the regular Eid programmes and dramas on different TV channels this year. Surrogates made up for.

IPDC Finance Limited arranged Jaago



Ucchashe Eid Anonde, an exclusive



Eid programme, live from their



official Facebook page, from May 26



to 28, at 10 pm every day to give a



message that regardless of all



difficulties, the show must go on



and we must always keep moving



forward.



Momimul Islam, Managing Director



and CEO of IPDC Finance Limited,



along with famous singer Partha



Barua and Rashid Khan, CEO of



Creato, initiated this three-day



live Eid soiree with the country's



celebrated artistes. Bappa Mazumder,



Partha Barua, Samina Chowdhury,



Afsana Mimi, Rumana Rashid Ishita,



Shafin Ahmed and others performed in



the programme.



National poet Kazi Nazrul Islam's



121st birthday was on May 25. This



year, however, the day also



coincided with Eid-ul-Fitr, the



biggest festival of the Muslims.



Chhayanaut celebrated this momentous



occasion on digital platform during



the coronavirus pandemic that has



vastly pushed people into the



virtual world with camouflage of



real humans with masks, gloves,



overalls and so on.



A cultural programme titled Nobo



Jug Oi Elo Oi was launched on



Chhayanaut's YouTube channel-



Chhayanaut Digital Platform. The



make-believe show was live from 7pm



on the poet's birthday. Chhayanaut



had also celebrated Pohela Boishakh



and Rabindranath Tagore's birthday



in a similar fashion earlier this



year amid the hovering threat of



pandemic.







Bangladeshi artistes from different



countries organised a live concert,



'Solidarity Concert for Baul Ranesh



Thakur', on May 30 to stand by him



and all other Baul musicians.



Baul Ranesh Thakur is an



independent troubadour and a



disciple of Baul Shah Abdul Karim.



Unidentified miscreants burnt Baul



Ranesh Thakur’s music room on May 18



at Ujandhal village in Derai upazila



of Sunamganj. His instruments and



his life's works were also burnt in



the arson attack.



The concert was an instrument-free



programme, which was live on



Saturday and started at 8 pm



(Bangladesh time) on the official



Facebook pages of Das and Co,



Nagarnat and Sylhettoday24.com, the



three associates of the event. Baul



Shafi Mondol, Bappa Mazumder, Rahul



Anand, Kanak Aditya, Shibu Kumar



Shil, Pinto Ghosh, Sayed Hasan Tipu,



Baul Basir Uddin Sarkar and Baul



Surjyalal Das and other renowned



musicians performed at the concert.







Ashiquzzaman Tulu joined the concert



from Canada, while Gouri Choudhury,



Sohini Alam from the band Khiyo and



Amit Dey joined from the United



Kingdom. Tajul Imam from the USA,



Rajib Das from India, Paromita Dey



from Australia and Shabnam Surita



Dana from Germany also joined the



live programme.



All musicians joined the concert



from their respective homes, as the



novel coronavirus has forced 'social



distancing' upon human society all



the world over.
