Today’s Holiday:Bangladesh Independence Day


Today’s Holiday:
Bangladesh Independence Day

This public holiday celebrates the declaration of independence of the state of Bangladesh on March 26, 1971. When India gained independence from Britain in 1947, the region that is now Bangladesh became East Pakistan, and was governed together with West Pakistan as one country. By early 1971, differences between East and West Pakistan led to war. When India entered the war in November, independence was assured. Bangladeshis observe this national holiday in the capital city of Dhaka with memorial ceremonies, a boat race on the Buriganga river, and other festivities. More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld (1794)

Schnorr was a German religious and historical painter and draftsman. As a child, he studied under his father, who was an engraver and painter.

This Day in History:
The Henley Regatta Is Established in England (1839)

Until 1839, the little town of Henley-on-Thames was known primarily as a glass-producing port town. During a town hall meeting that year, Captain Edmund Gardiner proposed holding a regatta, since the growing popularity of rowing could benefit the town. Today, the rowing competition is a world-class competition that draws oarsmen from around the world for five days each summer, with thousands of spectators taking part in its traditions. How did it officially become a “royal” regatta in 1851? More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

George Eliot

Article of the Day:
The Nazca Lines

Aerial exploration of the arid tableland surrounding Peru’s Palpa valley has revealed a remarkable network of geometric and zoomorphic forms etched in the desert floor. Created by the Nazca, a pre-Incan civilization that flourished from about 200 BCE to about 600 CE, the Nazca Lines span about 200 sq mi (500 sq km). The glyphs are only recognizable as coherent figures from the air, but the Nazca never possessed the technology to view them from that vantage point. Why, then, did they create them? More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch
