The session was ended by taking some group photos.
Heartwarming presence of Freedom Fighters.
Followed by Celebrity Adda another season started with three Freedom Fighter’s Alom Talukdar, Mujibor Rahman Manik, and Padma Rahman. Alom Talukdar started the session with a quote by Krishnachandra Majumdar. Then he told the audience a story about two brothers, one worker of freedom fighters and the other brother who worked for the Shanti Bahini mainly known as traitor people. Where he worked as a spy for the freedom fighters! Who can guess that the house where there is the Pakistani flag all day long is also the same place where freedom fighters come together to plan their missions. Alom Talukdar told the audience more about liberation war and freedom fighters.
Another brave freedom fighter Mujibor Rahman Manik said when he was at his teenage he only marched. Without any idea about positions, weapons, only the interest of knowing the unknown and bravery helped him keep going to learn as time went by!
On the other hand, Padma Rahman learned to nurse against all difficulties which came handy during the liberation war cause her experience saved a lot of lives. Even though war took away a lot of life and everyone went through a lot of sufferings, things took a turn for Padma Rahman. On a camp, she met Sadikur Rahman Khan and they are still together living happily. The season ended with great satisfaction of the guest and the audience.11th International Children's Film Festival
