Initially the replica would be a fibre glass sculpture which later on would be made of bronze . The entire project is running under the guidence and planning of eminent sculptor Sri Jogen Chowdhury and next year this ' Bhasha Uddyan' would be ready with 'Bhasha Shahid Smarak'.
To pay respect and homage to the martyrs of the Bhasha andolan of Bangladesh the United Nations declared 21st Feb. as the International Mother Language Day.
