Madhur Canteen, Dhaka University

Campus Special: Yellow walls become worn, broken chairs and tables attached to the dust of history. Yes, this is Madhur Canteen. This canteen is involved with the political history of Bangladesh.

48's language movement, 49's 4th Class employees of the university movement, 52's agitation days, 54's election battle of 'Jukta Front', reactionary opposition student movement in 1958-60, 66's six-point demands movement, revolt of 69, 70's election - the names of the canteen deeply involves in all these things.

History of Madhur Canteen:
Nakri Chandra was the grandfather of Madhu daa. The business relationship was being started between Nakri Chandra and landlords of Srinagar, Bikrampur in the early nineteenth century. Nakri Chandra and his family moved to the capital to promote his business. He started to live in the house of landlord at Zindabazar Lane. Aditya Chandra and Nibaran Chandra were his two sons.

In 1921, after the establishment of Dhaka University, Nakri Chandra handed the responsibility to Aditya Chandra to promoting business in Dhaka University area. Aditya Chandra permanently started his business in Dhaka University area after the death of the Nakri Chandra. At that time British police took the initiative to withdraw camps and barracks on campus area. Aditya Chandra buys two houses by 30 taka from the British police. Madhu Daa was then 15 years old. He began a food business with his father since 1934-35 at the Dhaka University. Madhu Daa picked the rudder of the business after his father's death in 1939.

Activities of DAKSU were begun by the response of Dhaka University students' demands after Second World War. And the Madhur Restaurant was founded in charge of the Madhu Daa next to the Arts Building. That Madhur Stall, Madhur Tea Stall now becomes the Madhur Canteen. Mainly the Shandesh, Roshgolla and Singara were the foods of Madhur Canteen. And some biscuits of old Dhaka's bakeries could be found sometimes. And tea is available all the time. Madhu Daa become quite popular and trusted to the students by his friendly behavior and honesty.
