New Venue for Boishakhi Mela
This years `Boishakhi Mela` will take place on the 29th of April at the Sydney Olympic Park. Making the announcement in a press conference last night (26-Feb-2006) at the Daceyville Police Citizen Club, Vice President of Bangabandhu Parishad, Mr Sheikh Shamim said, `Boishakhi Mela` in Sydney first started 13 years ago, in 1993. Burwood Girls School ground was sufficient then. But over the years it has out grown its traditional site. So it was high time we move to a much larger venue.

`Boishakhi Mela` usually takes place around 14th of April. Explaining the delay this year, President of the organisation Dr Abdur Razzak said, Olympic Park holds the Easter Show around this time so `Boishakhi Mela` had to be pushed back towards the end of the month.

The press conference was followed by a discussion on `Shahid Dibosh` organised by `Shonar Bangla`, a Bangla newspaper published from Sydney.

The independence song

Tanveer Ahmed`s article in the 17-Feb-2006
The fight for nationhood and language is a fight for the self, the very essence of existence. It is with greater maturity and knowledge that I now see myself as a continuation of that struggle. Although stripped from its geography at a young age, its history is nonetheless etched deep.
