Bijoy bangle, the first software and keyboard in Bengali, celebrates silver jubilee Monday as the software made its way on December 16, 1988.

“We have completed 25 years,” Mustafa Jabbar, founder of Bijoy bangla software and keyboard, recently told a web portal.

He said that the software had to face a lot of challenges during both the regimes of Bangladesh Nationalist Party and the Awami League led coalition as both the regimes challenged the efficacy of the programme.

Between March 2008 and November 2013, each month saw an import of some 32,188 Bijoy keyboards through legal ways.

“There is no statistic before 2008. But I can calculate for myself that 30 to 35 lakh Bijoy Keyboard were imported in the previous ten years,” Mustafa Jabbar added.

The product is being used not alone in Bangladesh. The keyboard is also being used in part of West Bengal, Assam and Tripura.  The full-fledged use of Bijoy keyboard came in April 1987 a year ahead of its formal launching.
