The Bangabandhu-Bapu Digital Exhibition that began on September 25 at the Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy will end on October 11, the Indian High Commission in Dhaka said.

After that, the exhibition will be displayed outside Dhaka such as Chattogram, Sylhet, Rajshahi, Khulna and Kolkata.

The Indian High Commission in Dhaka, Ministry of Cultural Affairs of Bangladesh and Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy jointly hosted the display.

The Bangabandhu-Bapu Digital Exhibition is curated with 22 walls of information and over 100 points of digital engagement.

The experience starts with the introduction wall that showcases the theme of the exhibition and establishes the status of these two great leaders in the eyes of the world via testimonials. 

The next two walls provide a comprehensive view of the life of the two leaders.

The Meeting Wall – based on the day the two leaders met in August 1947 displayed - is probably the only photo in the world that has both Banagabandhu and Bapu in one frame. 

A holographic time machine that layers historical photos with a timeline provides a unique interface to the user to reference the time and lives.

The next segment states the incidents from their youth that shaped their moral fibre. 

The next wall showcased the three most famous movements in their lives, the Salt march is considered by Time Magazine to be amongst the three most important movements of modern history, while the speech of March 7th is on the Memory of the World Register of UNESCO, a list of world's important documentary heritage. 

The pain, suffering and injustice endured by the people are presented in the JalliawallaBagh and the Genocide tunnel.

“The visitor has an option to review the wall of 1971 that sequences the events of that year. The justification of using force and the help received by the liberation army are two end of the moral fibre of Humanity,” said BiradYagnik, Curator of Bangabandhu-Bapu Digital Exhibition.

The triangle of engagement provides the much needed visual relief from the pain and suffering, where 360 degree locations can be experienced.

A robotic signature was viewed and the favourite music of the two leaders was enjoyed. 

The wall celebrating BA and Banga MATA showcases the two women who stood by their men and advised them at the right time. Both were revered and always held a position of importance in their life.

The vision the two leaders had for their country and people is articulated in the next segment.
