The nation is set to celebrate the 48th Victory Day today, paying tribute to the martyrs who sacrificed their lives to liberate the country from the clutches of Pakistan occupation force in 1971. Different socio-cultural organisations and educational institutions across the country will celebrate the day through special programmes and performances.

Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) is celebrating the occasion through a two-day programme featuring discussion, recitation, plays, music and dance performances at the academy’s Nandan Mancha which began yesterday.  Marking the Victory Day, Theatre (Bailey Road), one of the most prominent theatre troupes in the country, will stage two special shows of its highly-acclaimed production ‘Payer Awaj Pawa Jay’ today at the Experimental Theatre Hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA).
