A Bangabandhu Corner will be established at “Lovely Professional University” in Punjab, one of the largest private universities in India.
The Bangabandhu Corner will gradually be converted into a centre as agreed by the university authorities.
The decision was taken in a meeting between Muhammad Imran, Bangladesh High Commissioner to India and Ashok Mittal, Chancellor of the University, said the Bangladesh High Commission on Tuesday.
The initiatives have been taken to mark the celebration of the birth centenary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
Lovely Professional University has around 35 thousand students including more than three thousand foreign students from over 50 countries in its 600 – acre campus.

The University is playing a pioneer role in sports and athletics. Eleven students of the university are participating in the Tokyo Olympic.
Around seven hundred fifty Bangladeshi students are studying at the university, the highest number in a single campus outside Bangladesh.
High Commissioner Imran interacted with the Bangladeshi students during his recent visit to the university.
The Bangabandhu Corner will have a life-size portrait of Bangabandhu, copies of the Unfinished Memoirs and the Prison Diaries apart from other books on Bangabandhu and Bangladesh’s history, culture and socio-economic development.
There will also be audio-visual interfaces for information sharing on Bangabandhu and Bangladesh.
Once the Bangabandhu Corner is established in the University, it would become a knowledge platform for students from India and abroad to know about the life, work and philosophy of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, said the High Commission.
