My favorite poet is Bangladesh’s national poet, Kazi Nazrul Islam. He is regarded as a rebel poet. I admire him for speaking out against the ruling class’s tyranny and oppression, as well as all social injustices and inequalities.

Kazi Nazrul Islam was born on the 11th of Jaistha, 1306 in Churolia, a Burdwan village in West Bengal. Kazi Fakir Ahmed was his father, and Jaheda Khatun was his mother. His ancestors immigrated from Patna and settled in the Burdwan district. Nazrul Islam lost his father when he was a child, so he had to fight poverty even as a child. He was admitted to the local primary school when he was ten years old. He had been a truant student since he was a child. He read little and dropped out of school quickly. But he was an exceptional talent. After finishing primary school, he went to work as a servant in a bakery, where he had to work from dawn to dusk. Then, in 1914, Nazrul enlisted in the army during the First World War. His pen did not stop even on the battlefield. When the war ended, he returned to his motherland with the inspiration of freedom.

Nazrul wrote Bengali verses filled with Arabic and Persian words as a child. He sent several poems and prose compositions from the military camps, which were published in Calcutta’s Bengali magazines. His message was one of rebellion. He urged the people to rise in opposition to tyranny and oppression, as well as all social injustices and inequalities.

Kazi Nazrul Islam is a poet of men, a poet of love, and a rebel poet. His rebellious writings make my blood race. His devotion to man warms my heart, and it is for this reason that I admire him the most. This great minstrel breathed his last on August 29, 1976, after a long illness and loss of mental balance. We pray to Allah for the soul of his departed son.

Baundeler Atmakahini, Nazrul’s first prose work, created quite a stir and was notable for its style and literary appeal. He composed poems, songs, stories, Islamic songs, and other works. His Agnibina, Bisher Bashi, Sarbahara, Bidrohi, Dhumketu, Bulbul, Dolon Chapa, Sindhu Hindol, Shamyobadi, and other works are considered to be the pinnacle of Bangla literature.
