Kazi Nazrul Islam (1899-1976) has been customarily characterized as a rebel poet, particularly, if not exclusively, because of his 1922 poem called “Bidrohi” (the Rebel)—a poem that fiercely stages his political, linguistic, even metrical rebellion all at once.
From Churulia, Bardhaman to Dhanmondi, Dhaka. And so many places in between - College Street, Taltola Lane, CIT Road. And of course Kolkata, dear city. During his lifetime, the bohemian poet Kazi Nazrul Islam wandered and dwelled in many places. On his birthday, we look at those towns, cities, and localities bearing his memories.
Although many seminars and discussions are going to be held to mark the 117th birth anniversary of National Poet Kazi Nazrul Islam today, only a handful of research has been done on the poet in the last few decades.
Darirampur in Trishal of Mymensingh, the place gripped with Nazrul's memories, is ready to celebrate the 116th birth anniversary of national poet Kazi Nazrul Islam, through three-day national level programmes.
