Bangabandhu

How many poems you have written, o Tagore!
How many poems, o Jibananando Das!
How many immortal pictures you have drawn, o Joinul!
How many songs you have composed, o Nazrul!

Bangabandhu throughout his whole life
has written only one poem -'Bangladesh'.
Only one song he has sung with the tune of heart
and only one picture he has drawn-'Bangladesh'.

It is the second important poem on Bangabandhu next to Annodashankor Roy's poem.
The poem has pictured Bangabandhu- a legendary figure in history, a charismatic leader of commoner, and an ace architect of nation- to the canvas of Bangladesh. Thus Bangladesh and Bangabandhu are bonded to same thread.
This great poem just came to my attention. Bangabandhu was a realist as well as a dreamer politician. In his vision Banga Desh was Sonar Bangla that he tried to realize. He is the greatest leader in the SE Asia in our time. His spirit is very much alive in Bangla Desh shaping that nation. I thank poet Abubakar very much!
