The new Millennium was heralded by a virtual thunderstorm. The Americans call it 9/11. The world followed suit. The disastrous and tragic happenings in mainland USA on the 11th of September 2001 transformed the world of our times.

Hijacked US commercial passenger planes piloted by suicidal attackers crashed into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Fairfax, Virginia near Washington.

Dr. Mizanur Rahman Shelley

The 21st February 1952, however, rolled years of lightning and a single day of drums in one everlasting mosaic. In essence, it is a mélange of varied colours of sadness, pride and enduring joy of success achieved through unparalleled sacrifice.
