Nazrul's 35th anniversary of death tomorrow

The 35th death anniversary of National Poet Kazi Nazrul Islam will be observed tomorrow with due honour, dignity, and solemnity.
Various socio-cultural and political organisations have chalked out elaborate programmes to honour the rebel poet and recall his memories.
Students, teachers, and staffs of Dhaka University led by the vice-chancellor will place wreaths and offer prayers at the mausoleum of the poet at 8:00am. Later, a discussion will be held on the mausoleum premises.
Officials and employees of Bangla Academy will place wreath at Nazrul's grave at 8:00am.
Yesterday, the academy organised a discussion at its conference room on the occasion of the poet's death anniversary, said a press release.
National Professor Kabir Chowdhury and Bangla Academy Director General Shamsuzzaman Khan, among others, spoke at the discussion.
Kazi Nazrul, who pioneered poetic works espousing intense spiritual rebellion against fascism and oppression, died on Bhadro 12 according to Bangla calendar (August 29, 1976) at the age of 77.
Nazrul enriched Bangla literature with his fiery poems and explored a synthesis of different forces in a rebellion, expressing rage as well as beauty and sensitivity.
Nazrul's writings explored themes such as love, freedom, and revolution and inspired people to raise their voice against oppression and injustice during the British rule.
His writings injected patriotism, vigour, and strength into the freedom fighters during the country's liberation war in 1971.
