"These are eternal bonds, permanently cemented by the blood and sacrifices of our martyrs. I pay my tributes to the martyrs of both countries who have laid down their lives during the independence struggle," Shringla said. He said the recipients of the scholarship scheme are the future of Bangladesh. "You should be very proud to have been born in the family of Muktijoddhas and have inherited their legacy."

He said it is a unique honour but carries with itself the onus of carrying forward their legacy and spirit into the future. "I'm also sure you all will evolve to be the goodwill ambassadors between the future generations of both the countries."

The High Commissioner said Bangladesh and India share a common heritage, cultural linkage and have shed blood together on the battlefield.

The Muktijoddha scholarship scheme is one such initiative launched in 2006. Under the scheme, over 12,621 students have already been awarded scholarship and an amount of Tk 21 crore has been utilised.

Some 120 students of Barishal division were handed over scholarship cheques.
