বেশ কিছুদিন ধরে Zahid Hossain, Afshin Shiraji (নুহিন) ও বাতায়ন ফাউন্ডেশন এর সাথে “ছবিতে বাংলা বর্ণমালা” আকছি। এখনো বেশ কিছু ড্রয়িং বাকি। প্রোজেক্ট এর উদ্দেশ্য, বাংলা বর্ণগুলোর সাথে ছবিগুলো এমনভাবে আঁকা, যেন, শিশুরা ছবির মাঝে বর্ণ গুলো দেখতে পায়। আমাদের এই আঁকা গুলো শিক্ষা-মুলক উপকরন হিসেবে কতটুকু কার্যকর জানি না, তবে, চমৎকার একটা অভিজ্ঞতা হল। অভিভাবক দের মতামত এর অপেক্ষায় রইলাম।

The Bengali alphabet features illustrations with objects and creatures in creative poses that take the form of the first letter of their names. For instance, in ‘ক’ (ko) for কাক (crow), the crow is drawn in the shape of the letter ‘ক’ (KO). This was eventually challenging, since bengali letters can be often quite complex. However, Zahid Hossan and Kazi Afshin Shiraji surprised me everytime with their creativity and talent.

In the beginning, it was more like an experiment. How can we bring together enthusiastic, creative minds from different geographical locations for an art project with a meaningful purpose? That’s where Batayon Foundation came in. It believes that traditional modes of charitable work can be greatly augmented if patrons can contribute their individual expertise. Thanks to Ishtiaque Rouf for the spirit. Power ON! And thanks to Ashfaq Ayon for his help.

Whats next? Mobile app, games, book? Complete the missing ones? Your suggestions and contributions are more than welcome!

By the way… here is a teaser of what’s coming next.
