The AGM was held in the afternoon. After the whole day academic program the evening started with the bliss of relaxation of the Gala dinner and cultural show by a famous cultural group of Barisal. The raffle draw took place to add an extra feather to the excitement. It was a pleasure for us to have your whole-heartedly support and full cooperation to hold and make success this great event.

The post conference tour to Kuakata on 20-21 February was an extravaganza event. On one end there was the scenic, sublime and serene Kuakata beach with both sunrise and sunset. On the other hand there was journey to exotic Fatrar Char a part of Sunderbans and motorbike ride to Gangamotir Char to view the sunrise. I hope the participants had a life time experience with adrenaline rush. The barbeque dinner, lively cultural show performed by the participants themselves and the moonlit beach made the trip more memorable.
