rabi-2.jpg On the last 6th August, 2007  66th death anniversary of Rabindranath Tagore  was observed. In Bangladesh the occasion was observed with pomp and pride. The TV channels broadcast different programs, the newspapers and magazines published articles and reviews and different cultural and social organizations exibit  their performances. 

Rabindranath is the greatest poet of Bengal. His wonderful creations not only confined to poetry, he virtually left no field of literature untraded in his lifetime and every field of literature in Bengali was illuminated by his touch whether it is song, story, novel, drama, travel or essays. His influence is such that neither his contemporaries nor the following generation could come out of his style and influence completely.

He is the only Nobel Laureate in Literature in Bengali; also only in the Sub-Continent.  That was in 1913 that he got the prize. After so many years Bengali  language could not produce any giant except Kazi Nazrul Islam, our poet of revolution.

Rabindranath Tagore is not only a poet of West Bengal. He is equally honoured and equally respected in Bangladesh. You cannot confine a language with borders. So he will be read and respected wherever there is Bengali spoken people are staying. Many of his literature were written in Bangladesh territory,in Shilaidaha and Sajadpur. 

Most important, one of his songs ‘Amar Sonar Bangla, Ami Tomai Bhalobashi……’ is the national anthem of Bangladesh.

Rabindranath became a part of  the culture and part of the identity of Bangladesh; religion didn’t  cause any hindrance in this assimilation.
