Today, 24th May is the birthday of one of my heroes, the great revolutionary Bengali poet Kazi Nazrul Islam, who fought against British rule, casteism, religious bigotry, womens' oppression, and other social evils.
The organization of which I am a patron ( Justice M.N. Venkatachaliah, former Chief Justice of India, is the Chief patron ), the Kalidas Ghalib Foundation ( see the website kgfindia.com ) held a function in his honour in Kolkata a couple of years back, which I attended. We gave a momento to some relatives of Kazi Nazrul Islam who also attended the function.
Long live Kazi Nazrul Islam !
