Shamsur Rahaman,one of the greatest poets in the history of Bengali literature is passed away.Actually he was ill for a long time. Different organs of his body was gradually damaged.After a long pain , he went away.
Who is Shamsur Rahaman ? He was the best poet in Bangladesh , one of the best poets in Bengali literature. You can watch halley’s comet in 86 years but you cant assure you can get such a poet in 1000 years.His language , His expression , His courage, His bravery everything was such a inspiration to us.
But what we did for him ?
We love him very much. There were huge people in his funeral. So,its undoubtedly sure that,mass people love him , respect him. But what our govt did ? didn’t they have responsibility to show some gratitude and respect to poet ? Why he was not flied abroad for better treatment ? Why Govt did not care to show him national respect ?
well, Poet has not lose anything. He is still alive in all cosmopolitan and true bangalis hearts. But this shame is for our govt,our nation. They did not give national respect. That did not make any difference to poet or his impression.But it did severe damage to our nations impression.
So, poet, wherever you are , please forgive us .
