The most glorious event of the early seventies was the liberation war of Bangladesh. After the long, bloody struggle against the Pakistani military regime, the people of Bangladesh, under the leadership of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman succeeded finally to have their own independent sovereign country on 16 December 1971. Immediate after the independence, how the new country was shaped up under the administration of Bangabandhu is a subject of a great interest to everyone.


This book is a little effort to ignite that interest. The items and issues of the chronology of events are collected from the main English daily newspapers during the period starts from 16 December 1971 – 15 August 1975 viz., The Bangladesh Observer, The Bangladesh Times and The Morning News. Each item of the news has been organized against the actual date of its occurrence and not on the date on which it was reported in any particular newspaper as its item. Usually an interested reader may have the opportunity to obtain the details of a particular event of the newspaper mentioned above on the following day it occurred. Be that as it may, in the process of selecting the events, special care and attention has been given to avoid controversies.
