Bangladesh celebrated her 50 years (Golden Jubille) of Independence coinciding with the birth centenary of Father of The Nation, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman (Mujib Borsho). After a nine-month-long bloodstained war of independence in 1971, the name of Bangladesh sparkled on the world map. The red and green flag, which proudly flies across Bangladesh and the world, continues to serve as a symbol of the country's determination to resist and battle injustice. This is the indomitable spirit embodied and transmitted by Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. Fittingly, the golden jubilee of the heroic victory coincides with the celebrations marking the birth centenary of the greatest Bengali to have ever lived. Therefore, the celebration of the Golden Jubilee (Subarna Jayanti) of our independence is of great importance. Extensive and colorful programs are chalked out to celebrate the Subarna Jayanti of the country's independence, and “Mujib Borsho”.
NDC, being the premier national educational institution, also celebrated the “Golden Jubilee” and “Mujib Borsho” with due respect and solemnity. Establishment of Bangabandhu Corner at NDC library was a part of this celebration. NDC also published two special journals on the occasion of centenary birth day of the Father of the Nation and the Golden Jubilee of Independence respectively. Lectures, syndicate discussions and panel discussions on liberation war and Bangabandhu were also organized throughout the year as part of the course curricula.
