Kazi Nazrul Islam is my favourite poet. Nazrul’s writings were full of hope, energy, aspiration and result. His writings awakened the sleeping people of this subcontinent.
It was Nazrul through whom the people began to hope for a better future. He made them conscious of their rights.
He helped them to fight for independence and break the bondage of slavery and fetters of subjugation. His famous creations are Agni Bina, Bandhan Hara, Rikter Bedan, Bisher Bansi, Agamani, Mukti, Bidrohi, Praloyshikha, Dolanchapa, Fanimansha, Sharbahara, Chakrabak etc.
He also wrote several thousand songs. For all these reasons I like him most. He was born on eleven Jaistha 1306 B.S Chumlia, a village of Burdwan in West Bengal. His father’s name was Kazi Fakir Ahmad and his mother’s name was Zaheda Khatun.
His parents lost four children before his birth. So, they gave him the nick name Dhuku Mia. In his early life Nazrul lost his mother. For this he had to struggle hard against poverty.
