‘bangla': My Mother, My Language

On February 21st the language-devotees of this blessed land,
Marched fearlessly in 1952 holding hand in hand,
Couldn't tolerate the likely death of their soul, ‘Bangla',
Challenged the oppressors' cunning formula.

Many of the brave souls smilingly perished,
Laying the foundation for thousands to move ahead,
The sacrifices soaked the world in a new ray,
Turning the day into 'International Mother Language Day'.

'Amar vaiyer rokte rangano Ekushey February,
Ami ki vulite pari? '

by Md. Ziaul Haque
