মঙ্গলবার, ১০ নভেম্বর ২০১৫

10 November 2015 As long as they lived, the relationship between the two greats of Bangla literature was of mutual admiration, respect, and affection according to Anindita Kazi.

She was the main attraction at an evening programme, 'Robi Porikramai Nazrul’, of Nazrul Geeti and Rabindra Sangeet. The programme featured Anindita Kazi from India, the granddaughter of our national poet Kazi Nazrul Islam, and Lily Islam, Rabindra sangeet artiste from Dhaka last Saturday. It was organised by the Indira Gandhi cultural Centre.

In 1922, Nazrul was imprisoned for his political poem 'Anondomoyir Agomone' (published in the 12th edition of Dhumketu, September 26, 1922). Rabindranath expressed his support for him, dedicating his lyrical play Basanta to Nazrul.

While in prison, Nazrul and his fellow political prisoners started a long hunger strike. Many well-known personalities like Deshbondhu Chittaranjan Das, Acharya Prafulla Chandra Roy, Sarat Chandra Chattapadhyay, urged Nazrul to end his hunger strike. Rabindranath sent a telegram to Nazrul that said, “Please give up hunger strike. Our literature claims you.” However, the jail authorities did not forward the message to Nazrul, Anindita told the audience.
