Joi Bangla. Jai Hind.

Times of India today published a special supplement to commemorate Bangladesh's Prime Minister's state visit to India. In an article, the writer Sumali Moitra termed Hasina as 'daughter of democracy' saying her "biggest achievement is the empowerment of the masses while keeping the fabric of democracy and secularism intact."

In another article, Tariq A. Karim, Bangladesh High Commissioner to India, reminisced upon the shared history, culture and traditions of India and Bangladesh, and stressed upon further strengthening of ties between the two nations. He concluded the write-up saying: 'Joi Bangla. Jai Hind. Joi Bangladesh-India moitree'.
