The Carter Academy (TCA) celebrated the Independence Day on Monday (March 26) with renewed joy this year as the country has earned the
eligibility to become a developing nation. The day marks the beginning of the fight by Bengalis in erstwhile East Pakistan for freedom.

The day started with hoisting of the national flag at the academy premises amid the singing in a chorus of the national anthem in a befitting manner as elsewhere across the country and abroad simultaneously at 8.00 AM. Afterward, a discussion meeting was held at the academy auditorium to paid tributes to the martyrs and veterans of the 1971 Liberation War and remembered the martyrs. Professor Md. Ismail Topader, Principal of the academy presided over the programme
while senior faculty member Makhan Chandra Biswas acted as the anchor.

The programme started with a recitation from the holy Quran by class VII student Tahsin Dewan, and followed by the short speeches of class VII student Touhidul Islam, class IX student Mahinul Islam, class XI student Sadia Akter, Mira Talukder, Umne Honey, Afroza Akter and Sharmin Akter. Later, TCA Principal Professor Md. Ismail Topader, Vice Principal Mohammad Nazrul Islam, faculty member Nasir Uddin, Syed Pervez Kaiser and Khorshed Alam were spoke highlighting the significance and background of the day at the programme. Professor Topader, while delivering his address, recalled with profound respect
the contribution of the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the valiant freedom fighters and martyrs to the achievement of independence.

The second phase of the programme included a colourful cultural programme, which was an added attraction to the day. The performances of reciting poem by class VII student Ghulam Shahariar and class III student Nusrat Jahan Sadia of MAF Primary School to the tune of patriotism enthralled the guests.

programme. ‘Gano sangeet’ and patriotic songs aired from ‘Swadhin Bangla Betar Kendra,’ during the Liberation War were performed at the programme. Faculty and administration members, Adjutant, students of TCA, teachers and students of MAF Primary School were present on the occasion.

Every year, March 26 brings the most tragic reminiscence of the history’s blackest episode that heralded a nine-month bloody ordeal from the night following March 25, 1971 in achieving the long-cherished independence on December 16, the same year at the cost of a sea of blood. TCA also observed Sunday (March 25), as Genocide Day to commemorate the victims of the Pakistani crackdown. A one-minute nationwide blackout was held to show respect to the martyrs.
