Anandadhara Arts proudly presents “The melody of Mother Language” celebrating the international Mother Language Day.

In February 1952 people sacrificed their lives to protect the right to talk in their native language Bangla. The programme will feature a magical ensemble of music, poetry and dance expressing gratitude to all the martyrs who sacrificed their lives to uphold the dignity of their mother tongue.

The programme will not only commemorate the language martyrs but also express the deepest love for the mother tongue. Both the children and adult students of Anandadhara Arts will perform music, poetry and dance. It will certainly be a mesmerising experience creating an atmosphere of love and harmony to promote linguistic and cultural diversity and multilingualism around the world.
