Exclude We have many famous poets of Bengali literature in the world. They have enriched our literature by their writing. Among them Nazrul Islam is my favorite poet. He is a rebel and national poet of Bangladesh.

His birthday :-

Nazrul Islam was born in 1306 BS in the village of Churulia in the Burdwan district of West Bengal. His father's name was Kazi Fakir Ahmed and his mother's name was Zaheda Khatun.

His childhood :-

Nazrul Islam lost his father in childhood. Losing his guardian, he enjoyed an independent life from an early age. Due to this he could not get any institutional certificate on education. He received his primary education with distinction from the village maktab (pathshala). He then fled to Asansel and took a job at a bakery. A police sub-inspector took him to Mymensingh and arranged for his education. But he had no interest in schooling at all. World War II started when he was in tenth grade and he took part in it. He later became a Habildar.

His acquaintance :-

Nazrul Islam was a poet, a novelist, a playwright, a. Story - Writer and a musician. Despite all the adversities, he started composing rhymes from his childhood. His first poem 'Mukti' was published from Calcutta. After the war he immersed himself in writing. His famous poem 'Rebel' was first published in 1328 BS. This made him known as the rebellious poet of Bengal. The ruling party imprisoned him for his poem 'Anandamayir Agamne'. Then he gradually created Agniveena, Bisher Bashi, Chakrabak, Bandhanhara, Rikter Bedan etc.

His Poetry:-

Kazi Nazrul Islam was not only a poet, he was also a singer, composer and composer. Among his books of poetry are Agniveena, Praloy Shikha, Chakrabak, Dolanchapa, Chayanat, Jinjir, Puber Hawa etc. Kuhelika, Death Hunger is his famous novel. Aleya, Jhilimili is his famous play. He has composed innumerable hamds, naats and ghazals. Dhumketu is his published literary magazine. It was at this time that his famous ‘Rebel Poem’ was published. The British government imprisoned him for his poem 'Anandamoyir Agamne'. While in jail, he composed songs and poems to break the 'poison flute'.

His rebellion :-

Then the non-cooperation movement created a huge stir across the country. Nazrul returned from Comilla to Ali Akbar Khan's house in Daulatpur for a short time and returned to Comilla on 19 June. During his stay here, he became an active political activist. His main job was to sing in processions and meetings. Among the songs composed and composed by him at that time were "A mad passer-by came running to the prisoner's courtyard, Aji Rakta-Nishi Bhore / Eki A Shuni Ore / Mukti-Kolahal Bandi-Shrinkhale" etc. He moved here for 18 days. He returned to Comilla in November 1921. On November 21, there was a nationwide strike - Nazrul took to the streets again; He marched around the city in a non-cooperation procession and sang, "Give alms! Give alms! O people of the city!" The best example of this is the poem called Rebel. The rebellious poem was published in 1922 and gained fame in the literary community of India. In this poem Nazrul describes himself: -

I am deprived of pain, the wayfarer is forever homeless,

I feel the pain of humiliation, the burning of poison, the speed of my ever-humiliated chest

I'm arrogant forever angry hair yawning, pain is intense,

Chit kiss-thief-vibration I thar-thar-thar first manifest virgin!

I look at the secret lover with a startled look.

I love the playful girl with her cocoon bangles.


The great-rebel war-weary

I will be calm that day.

When the cry of the oppressed does not resound in the sky,

The sword of the oppressor is the sword of Bhima Ran, will not fight on the ground-

Rebel war-weary

I will be calm that day.


I am a rebellious hero forever -

I have risen out of the world alone forever improved head!

Nazrul published Dhumketu on 12 August 1922. It was published twice a week. In the 1920s, the Non-Cooperation and Khilafah Movement failed at one point. Dhumketu had a special contribution in the emergence of armed revolution in the formation of Swaraj. Blessing this magazine, Rabindranath Tagore wrote,

Kazi Nazrul Islam Kalyaniyeshu, come on come on comet.

Dam, bridge of fire in the dark, blow away your victory in this fortress of misfortune.

This message was written at the top of the front page of the magazine. Nazrul's poem was published in the September 26, 1922 issue of the paper on the arrival of Anandamayi. Due to the publication of this political poem, the said issue of the newspaper was banned on 7 November. On 23 November of the same year, his Jugbani essay was confiscated and he was arrested from Comilla on the same day. After his arrest he was brought from Comilla to Calcutta. On 7 January 1923, Nazrul testified in his defense as a prisoner under trial. Chief Presidency Magistrate Swinhor made the statement in court. This statement of his has gained a special literary status in Bengali literature as the statement of a political prisoner. In this statement, Nazrul said:

Complain to me, I am a rebel. So today I am a prisoner in the palace and charged at the royal gate .... I am a poet, I am sent by God to reveal the undisclosed truth, to embody the intangible creation. In the voice of the poet, God responds, my word is the revelation of truth, the word of God. Sebani may be a traitor to justice, but in justice he is not a traitor, he is not a traitor to the truth. The revelation of truth will not be restrained. The comet in my hand will now become the fire-torch of God's hand and burn unjust oppression ....

After the trial on January 18, Nazrul was sentenced to one year rigorous imprisonment. Nazrul was taken to Alipore Central Jail. While living here as a prisoner (January 22, 1923), the world poet Rabindranath dedicated his spring lyric drama to Nazrul. Nazrul was especially happy about this. Sitting in jail with this joy, he composed the poem with the joy of creation.
