Thank you note from BDSA President

"On behalf of the executive committee of Purdue BDSA, I would like to thank all the participants, performers, committee members, backstage volunteers, technical crew, slide projection volunteers, emcees, flyer and trifold designer, and volunteers who worked day and night and helped the IMLD happen. Thank you to all of you who came to enjoy the show.
We do ask the question “why?”  before every event or project that we have overtaken as this committee. For this International Mother Language Day celebration, we had two answers to this “why?” question. Firstly, we wanted to put forward Bangladesh, its history, and culture to the diverse Purdue population. Secondly, we wanted to give a platform to the diverse student body at Purdue to celebrate their linguistic diversity and culture. 
This year, we tried to bring some new flavor to the show by strictly maintaining punctuality (we started the programme at 7:05 and finished before 10:00 pm), putting forth a video and live performance combination depicting the history of IMLD and Bangladesh. We also tried to bring more 'International' performers, by emailing about 3500 International students of Purdue, inviting them to perform in our show. "
