Inside the pandal everything was arranged smoothly. There were stalls of different associations or companies. There is open space for the visitor to pass time there. The security was enough. Communication was fine. The exhibits were arranged in such a way that the visitors could reach and see each of them without any difficulty. There was good arrangement of lighting and other amenities.

Things exhibited: In the fair there were different stalls containing numerous scientific instruments. I saw the models of motor cars, trains, ships, aero planes etc, X-ray machines, different surgical instruments were arranged there smoothly. There were also products of jute fibre and jute stalk which appeared to me of greater practical value. The science fair held in Dhaka last week was an impressive one. Visitors from both home and abroad came to visit here.
The most amusing thing was the making of a motor car by our local scientist. This motor car will be run by mustard oil instead of petrol. All our native visitors highly praised this scientist who was also present there. Even the foreign visitors also eulogized our young scientist. However some other scientists also exhibited their inventions there. The making of surgical thread from lobster crust, the cheapest paddy thresher, the remote control light was another attractive things exhibited there.
