Children and teenagers gather in front of television sets when the song ‘Cholchhe Gari Sisimpure’ is played. Such has been happening for more than last ten years from villages to the towns and cities in Bangladesh. Sisimpur has turned into a part of our families.
Sisimpur is helping to create base of mindset for the children and teenagers. Halum, Tuktuki, Ikri, Shiku- all are popular across the country. After being engulfed with love of people from all ages Sisimpur, the popular program of hundreds of thousands people has stepped into the eleventh year.
