Every time anti-liberation forces tried to undermine the history of the war of Independence in 1971, the youth of the country bravely foiled those evil attempts. Innovator is a youth-led cultural group in Sylhet, which has taken this as a mission.
Innovator was formed back in 2006 by a group of dynamic youth led by Rezwan Ahmed and Pranab Kanti Deb. They launched their flagship program – Boi Pora Utshab – to encourage school, college and university students to read books on the Liberation War. Initially, they started by giving students books on the Liberation War free of cost following a free registration process in December every year, and a Multiple-Choice Questions (MCQ) test in February and awarded the best readers. The free books, given in the month of March, are the prizes for the best performers. So far, Innovator has distributed books among 7,000 students from different educational institutions in Sylhet division. Besides, every year Innovator’s arranges seminars, study circles, education programs, etc. Innovator is one of the few organizations that arranges festivals to inspire young men and women to read books on the Liberation War. Riding on this momentum, Innovator now wants to expand activities beyond the boundaries of the Sylhet division.
