24 feet long kite to commemorate Mujib Year

As lockdown is lifted workplaces across the country have begun to reopen in a limited range. At that very moment, ordinary people are spending a lot of lazy time in the countryside. And using that time, some Bangabandhu-loving youths made a huge kite of 24 feet long and 15 feet in width.

Some Bangabandhu-loving youths of Rajapur village of Kharua UP in Nandail Upazila of Mymensingh made the kite. 

Mamun Mia, son of Giasuddin of Rajapur village, is the main entrepreneur of the work. He was assisted by Tariqul Islam Sajib, a member of New Model University College Chhatra League, Hiron and Abdul Hakim.             

Mamun Mia said, "Now we have no work to do, because of coronavirus, there is no opportunity to spend time chatting in the market. People of different ages in the area are flying kites. We have made this kite by dedicating Mujib's centenary to make the time of coronavirus memorable."        

He further said, "We had to work for 8 days to make the kite and it cost Tk 8,000."

Chhatra League member Sajib said, "Since the college was closed, we were able to do this work collectively. We wanted to remember the birth centenary of Mujib despite COVID-19 pandemic."

At 11 pm on Tuesday, 25 of us flew the kite in the sky for a while but it was very difficult to control. If the weather is favourable, We will fly in the kite in the sky again on Wednesday.

Mymensingh DSB SI Delwar Hossain Khan expressed his excitement after seeing the kite. 

Kharua UP chairman Kamrul Hasnat Mintu said the Mujib Year's state programs have been suspended due to the coronavirus epidemic across the country. And such an initiative of the local youth to commemorate this Mujib centenary certainly deserves praise.
