Great writer with dreams
The whole nation is still mourning the death of Humayun Ahmed, an author, dramatist, screenwriter, playwright and filmmaker. Some noted writers of West Bengal have also expressed their deep shock over the death of our great writer. Sunil Gangopaddhay said: “I can not think that my friend is no more in this world, he (Humayun Ahmed) had a mastery over all the spheres of literature. His death is an irreparable loss to Bangla literature.” Famous writer Samaresh Majumder has said that the contribution of Humayun Ahmed in Bangla literature would remain alive for decades. His supervisor got very surprised to know about his command over literature while he was doing his Ph.D in polymer chemistry in North Dakota State University in US. Apart from his literary works, I am also impressed with his great dream of building a cancer hospital and an institution like Shantiniketan. His dreams remained unfulfilled in his lifetime. But I think all the fans of Humayun Ahmed, his relatives and the government should come forward and make all out efforts to translate his great dreams into reality.
