With an aim of reviving the usage of Bangla words, the first show of ‘Nikhoj Sangbad’ staged at Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy in the capital on Friday. The play is a part of Coca-Cola Bangladesh's month-long campaign for the International Mother Language day called ‘Nikhoj Shobder Khoje’.

Besides, four successive performances of ‘Nikhoj Sangbad’ will be held at Abdul Karim Sahitya Bisharad Auditorium of Bangla Academy today and tomorrow (February 18 and 19).

Moreover, throughout the month of February the drama will be performed across 20 different universities in the country. The drama performances at the universities will be complemented with fun events where there will be hunt for the missing words through quizzes and submission of the once-popular Bangla words.

The drama has been written by Gousul Alam Shaon and Adnan Adib Khan, directed by Reja Arif and Tanvir Hasan in association with Tariq Anam Khan and has been enacted by Esha Yusuf, Manoj Kumar along with other noticeable theatre artistes.  

The plot focuses on a young boy who struggles to keep up with the contemporary international trends.  As the play progresses, the characters start to realize that they have forgotten the traditional and beautiful words of their own language. The main objective of this drama is to revive those beautiful words which once enriched our language and have now become almost extinct.

Shadab Khan, Managing Director of Coca-Cola in Bangladesh, said, “It’s our third consecutive year for the campaign and the response from the people has been very encouraging. We’re hopeful that we will be able to unearth some lost gems of the language and bring them back into our daily speak.”

He added, “We have lined up several activities as part of this campaign, one of which is this drama. We know that drama is very popular here and ties in so well with our culture. We’re hoping that the youth of this country will be encouraged to reconnect with their roots and find the long-lost gems through this endeavour.”  

Tariq Anam Khan said, "We have lost Keuketa. We have lost Protithojosha. We are not only losing our words and language, we are also losing ourselves and our pride. I request everyone to watch this theatre performance."
