Students of the Fine Arts Institute of Dhaka University are now busy colouring potteries and making masks. The items will be sold to fund the Mangal Shobhajatra, a Bangla New Year celebration initiated by their institute. The UNESCO had recognised the festival as an intangible cultural heritage of humanity in 2016.
