Augustin Sujan Barai: Today (April 24) is the fifth anniversary of Rana Plaza tragedy. On this day in 2013, the building collapsed in Savar on the outskirts of capital Dhaka, leaving at least 1,138 people dead and 2,500 others injured in the deadliest garment-factory accident in history.
The nation and the world are still in shock at the largest incident of accidental structural failure that claimed huge loss of lives.

The song, Dhongso Holo Rana Plaza, mourns the victims of the deadliest accident and prays that such tragedy never happens again.
The music of the song has been composed by county’s noted musician Ahmed Imtiaz Bulbul. Three young and talented singers of the country Mehedi Hasan, Luipa and Saran rendered their voices to the song which creates more appeal to listeners.
The song has been published on www.khalidsangeet.com, a website that contains the creations of Mahbubul A Khalid.
More than three hundred songs of Mahbubul A Khalid have been recorded and published here. His songs mainly portray the sufferings of unprivileged people and deal with the themes of nature, patriotism, perception, philosophy, religions, humanity, romanticism, spiritual love, tragedy, public awareness, amity, sports etc.
