“When the royal band started playing their instruments, a shiver ran down my spine due to the cold weather and intense excitement. The melody began to echo in the stone palace. The names of each country were announced. When I heard the name of Bangladesh, my chest filled with pride. I raised my head and walked towards the queen.”
Siddhartha Deb Majumder, one of the top achievers in the field of scouting in Bangladesh scouting history, shared his experience of participating in the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations in England in 2012. This is one of the most precious experiences of his life ever.
