Vikram Doraiswami made this remark while speaking at the celebration of Bangladesh-India Friendship Day in the capital's Bangabandhu International Conference Center on Monday. Vikram Doraiswami stated that Bangladesh and India have done a great deal of good jobs reciprocally in the fields of diplomacy, politics, trade and commerce, development, culture, security and people to people bonds. It is essential to make sure that the future generations understand this history of fraternity and cooperation, Vikram Doraiswami added. Vikram Doraiswami said that Bangladesh's independence has totally changed the map of South Asia. It has changed the region's ideological map too, he further said.
