As a continuation of the regular annual cultural event, ‘Heroes for All’ in cooperation with the Gulshan Society and the Dhaka North City Corporation arranged a day-long program ‘Paara Utshob’ in the Gulshan area in Dhaka recently, said a press release on Sunday.
Non-profit organization ‘Heroes for All’ founder Rehnuma Karim actively led the whole event. Tireless efforts by Heroes for All Inc volunteers and people behind the scenes Sazzad Sohel, Tanvir Ahmed from Gulshan Society along with Shayaan Seraj, Anis Zaman from DNCC team worked together to make this event a successful one.
Renowned Bangladeshi actress Azmeri Haque Badhon as well as Salma Adil from Salma Adil Foundation were active parts of the whole arrangement. Sarfaraz Anwar Upol gave his all-round support and encouragement, and ‘Moner Manush’ gave a tribute on the occasion with the famous National award-winning song – ‘Achen Amaar Moktar’.
DNCC mayor Atiqul Islam was graciously present on the occasion as the honorable chief guest. He said, ‘We want a city where there will be no discrimination. My goal is to build a truly inclusive city where people of all walks of life will be involved. ‘Para Utshob’ will play an important role in strengthening relations between neighbors and strengthening social bonds. Our children are not getting a chance to play, they have no friends. And that’s why an initiative like this is much needed. It will also reduce social injustice and unrest. This is how we want to build Dhaka for all.’
In the event, there were activities, fun food, games, magic, paintings, music, stand-up comedy, lathi khela, demonstrations of self-defense, street drama etc. and a talent show for everyone in the community. This very successful and unique event was arranged with a belief in having the vision of making the disconnected society connected for some brief but precious moments.
