Default Poet Shamsur Rahman Passed Away

According to Channle-I, Poet Shamsur Rahman died today at 6:40PM Bangladesh time.
I pay homage to the life and literary works of the great poet.




জীবন এবং মৃত্যুর বিবাদে তুমি
ফুল ফোটানো আর
সুর জাগানোর উদ্যোগ নিয়েছ,
প্রানের স্বদেশ তোমার
চৈতন্যের কুয়াশাময় প্রবাহে
দীপের মতো ভেসেছে সারাক্ষন।

এই তিমিরাবৃত প্রহরে দেখতে পেলাম
তোমার উত্তোলিত হাতে
নক্ষত্রের মতো জ্বলজ্বল করছে
আমার ভবিষ্যত।

(শামসুর রাহমানের “শহীদ জননীকে নিবেদিত পংক্তিমালা” কবিতা থেকে উদ্ধৃত)

May Allah rest his soul in peace and give his family strength. His death is a great loose to Bangladeshi poetry.

Mask

Shower me with petals,
heap bouquets around me,
I won't complain. Unable to move,
I won't ask you to stop
nor, if butterflies or swarms of flies
settle on my nose, can I brush them away.

Indifferent to the scent of jasmine and benjamin,
to rose-water and loud lament,
I lie supine with sightless eyes
while the man who will wash me
scratches his ample behind.
The youthfulness of the lissome maiden,
her firm breasts untouched by grief,
no longer inspires me to chant
nonsense rhymes in praise of life.

You can cover me head to foot with flowers,
my finger won't rise in admonishment.
I will shortly board a truck
for a visit to Banani.[1]
A light breeze will touch my lifeless bones.

I am the broken nest of a weaver-bird,
dreamless and terribly lonely on the long verandah.
If you wish to deck me up like a bridegroom
go ahead, I won't say no
Do as you please, only don't
alter my face too much with collyrium
or any enbalming cosmetic. Just see that I am
just as I am; don't let another face
emerge through the lineaments of mine.
Look! The old mask
under whose pressure
I passed my whole life,
a wearisome handmaiden of anxiety,
has peeled off at last.
For God's sake don't
fix on me another oppressive mask.

[Banani - An affluent suburb of Dhaka. It has a well known cemetery.]

From: Selected Poems of Shamsur Rahman.
Translated and Edited by Kaiser Haq.

May his soul rest in peace. I still cant forget he was attacked by some fundamentals, it must be a horrible moment for his life and his family.

I dont want to create a scene here where members are mourning the death of a legend our country has produced, but your justification doesn't make sense.

Saying "Allah tar gona maf koruk" does not make imply that that person is a notorious sinner. We all pray for forgiveness even though most of us i am sure are not notorious sinners. Asking forgiveness on behalf of someone does not make him any worse sinner.

We all have our ways of wishing well...asking for forgiveness on someone's behalf may not be your type of well wishing but that does not make it any inferior.
