The history of mother language day is related to the language movement of 21 February 1952 held in East Pakistan(presently Bangladesh). At that time, West Pakistan (presently Pakistan) government forcibly tried to make Urdu as the one and only official language though the language of more than half of the people of Pakistan was Bengal.

As a result, On February 21st, Bengali peoples made movement and processions for making the Bengali language as national language beside Urdu. But the Pakistani police force open fired on the protesters by the order of Pakistan government and caused a lot of deaths of innocent civilians and students. No nation has ever sacrificed their lives for the recognition of mother language except Bengalis.

Since then the day is celebrated in Bangladesh known as ‘Ekushe February’. It is also known as the first spark of Bangladesh’s independent movement. Which later led and encouraged the independence of Bangladesh.

The sacrifice for mother language highly praised and honored by many countries worldwide. The United Nation’s UNESCO then announced the day as the ‘International mother language day’ in 1999. From then the day has been observed every year on February 21.

It enlightens our mother tongue, what we learned from our first day of life. Sometimes a language reflects culture and traditions in the region. According to UNESCO, every two weeks, a language disappears from the earth. The international mother language day gives honor to every single language of the world.

The idea of celebrating international mother language day was the initiative of Bangladesh. So in Bangladesh, people observe international mother language day very deeply and honorably.

In the very morning on February 21, peoples from all ages and classes especially students went to ‘Shaheed Minar’ which means martyr monument singing ‘Amar ViyerRokteRagano'(a song dedicating the sacrifice of martyrs of 21 February). They go to the monument barefooted and give flowers to the monument for showing respect for the sacrifice of their lives.

We celebrate national, cultural and other activities each year on the day to mark the day with honor and memories. Education institutions like schools, colleges, and other institutions and offices organize various traditional and cultural events like patriotic songs and poems, etc all day long on 21 February. This encourages the new generation to love and uprise their country.

International mother language day is important for not only Bangladesh but also every single nation. It teaches us to love and respect our language at any cost.

amar bhaier rokte rangano ekushe february lyrics in bengali

আমার ভাইয়ের রক্তে রাঙানো
একুশে ফেব্রুয়ারি
আমি কি ভুলিতে পারি
ছেলেহারা শত মায়ের অশ্রু গড়ায়ে ফেব্রুয়ারি
আমি কি ভুলিতে পারি
আমার সোনার দেশের রক্তে রাঙানো একুশে ফেব্রুয়ারি
আমি কি ভুলিতে পারি।।

জাগো নাগিনীরা জাগো নাগিনীরা জাগো কালবোশেখীরা
শিশু হত্যার বিক্ষোভে আজ কাঁপুক বসুন্ধরা,
দেশের সোনার ছেলে খুন করে রোখে মানুষের দাবী
দিন বদলের ক্রান্তিলগ্নে তবু তোরা পার পাবি?
না, না, না, না খুন রাঙা ইতিহাসে শেষ রায় দেওয়া তারই
একুশে ফেব্রুয়ারি একুশে ফেব্রুয়ারি।।
সেদিনও এমনি নীল গগনের বসনে শীতের শেষে
রাত জাগা চাঁদ চুমো খেয়েছিল হেসে;
পথে পথে ফোটে রজনীগন্ধা অলকনন্দা যেন,
এমন সময় ঝড় এলো এক ঝড় এলো খ্যাপা বুনো।।
সেই আঁধারের পশুদের মুখ চেনা,
তাহাদের তরে মায়ের, বোনের, ভায়ের চরম ঘৃণা
ওরা গুলি ছোঁড়ে এদেশের প্রাণে দেশের দাবীকে রোখে
ওদের ঘৃণ্য পদাঘাত এই সারা বাংলার বুকে
ওরা এদেশের নয়,
দেশের ভাগ্য ওরা করে বিক্রয়
ওরা মানুষের অন্ন, বস্ত্র, শান্তি নিয়েছে কাড়ি
একুশে ফেব্রুয়ারি একুশে ফেব্রুয়ারি।।

তুমি আজ জাগো তুমি আজ জাগো একুশে ফেব্রুয়ারি
আজো জালিমের কারাগারে মরে বীর ছেলে বীর নারী
আমার শহীদ ভায়ের আত্মা ডাকে
জাগো মানুষের সুপ্ত শক্তি হাটে মাঠে ঘাটে বাটে
দারুণ ক্রোধের আগুনে আবার জ্বালবো ফেব্রুয়ারি
একুশে ফেব্রুয়ারি একুশে ফেব্রুয়ারি।।
