WELCOME TO ANANDADHARA FAMILY

কবিগুরুর লেখনীতে বঙ্গজননীর রূপ বর্ণনা বাঙালির মননে স্বর্ণাক্ষরে লেখা

আজি বাংলাদেশের হৃদয় হতে কখন আপনি
তুমি এই অপরূপ রূপে বাহির হলে জননী!
ওগো মা, তোমায় দেখে দেখে আঁখি না ফিরে!
তোমার দুয়ার আজি খুলে গেছে সোনার মন্দিরে॥

বাংলা মায়ের রূপ সত্যিই অপরূপ - তাই তো কবি জীবনানন্দ দাশ জন্মান্তরে এদেশে ফিরে আসতে চেয়েছেন

আবার আসিব ফিরে ধানসিঁড়িটির তীরে- এই বাংলায়
হয়তো মানুষ নয়- হয়তো বা শংখচিল শালিখের বেশে,
হয়তো ভোরের কাক হয়ে এই কার্তিকের নবান্নের দেশে
কুয়াশার বুকে ভেসে একদিন আসিব এ কাঁঠাল ছায়ায়।

বাংলার শিল্প, সংস্কৃতি ও ঐতিহ্যকে প্রবহমান রাখতে এ আমাদের ঐকান্তিক প্রয়াস। বাংলা এবং বাঙালির ঐকতানকে সমৃদ্ধ করতে আমরা অঙ্গীকারবদ্ধ। এ যাত্রায় আমরা আপনাকে সহযাত্রী হিসেবে পেতে উদগ্রীব।
