It is not enough to dream, to realize the dream, you have to develop yourself as an educated person through self-education. Along with education, their mother tongue, social customs and culture should be brought up. If not presented in front of the country, those cultures will be backward in the future in the hilly areas. Therefore, the Chairman of Parbatya Zilla Parishad called Kyshaihla to bring up their own language and culture in the future.
He said this while addressing the chief guest at the 19th Bangladesh Marma Student Council (BMSC) Central Student Conference of Bandarban Minority Cultural Institute on Friday (November 3) morning.
Speakers at the conference said that the Bangladesh Marma Student Council Committee was formed in 1989. This non-political organization is guided by the four principles of education, equality, friendship and progress. This organization has now entered 35 years. Which is the pride of this organization.
Chakma circle advisor Rani Yen Yen said in her speech, she used to save tiffin money to buy books and read. But in Chittagong Hill Tracts, tribals do not get this opportunity due to lack of financial transparency. However, due to the current internet facilities, many types of books are now available if desired. He believes that it is necessary to have knowledge of one’s own language, culture and traditions of the tribals along with linguistic knowledge.
At the end of the conference, the 31-member committee of Bangladesh Marma Student Council announced the new committee by electing President Usaigya Marma, General Secretary Anghaisingh Marma and Organizing Secretary Mongchai Sa Marma.
