A Nation Comes Alive

A Photo Feature by PRITO REZA

At Shahbagh's projonmo chottor, the nation has come together, irrespective of age, sex, class, religion, ethnicity -- indeed, anything which creates difference -- to stand up for one thing only. Days and nights are spent in chanting fiery slogans, inspirational music and art, battling for a cause using not guns and bombs, but words, rhythm and colour. Above everything flow green and red; in everyone's hearts is simply 'Bangladesh'. Forty-two years into independence, we wage another war -- for justice, which may have been delayed, but will not be denied.
