Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Poet Kazi Nazrul Islam selected and compiled some of his best poems and lyrics in a volume and named it as 'Sanchita'- the selected poems and lyrics. Those resourceful poems and lyrics in 'Sanchita' uphold human dignity, religious harmony, truth, beauty, pain and love. His poems validated the philosophy of human values and social justice. The superb poetic excellence is manifested in every page of 'Sanchita'-the masterpiece of literature. Poet Kazi Nazrul Islam captured the theme of love and humanity in the poems that readily demonstrated his feelings for the mankind, his rebelliousness against injustice and his emotions as a lover for his beloved in concrete and sublime form. The Poet gave the impression of being so romantic in his feelings and emotions. He merged himself with the beauteous hills, forests, birds, mountains, rivers and seas around him and expressed his feelings of happiness and pain as if he is a part of the nature by being a true lover. The philosophy of universal equality of mankind reflects very much on the center theme of his poems. He urged to all mankind to amalgamate the differences and hindrances that exist in the religion and society and bring them at one confluence of equality. As he wrote, wisdom of equality lies in the heart, not in the scriptures of religions.

Author notes provided by Syndetics

Poet Kazi Nazrul Islam is the national Poet of Bangladesh. He was born on 25th May, 1899 in Churulia, West Bengal and died in Dhaka, Bangladesh on August 29, 1976 at the age of 77. He published more than forty books on poetry, lyrics, short stories, novels, essays and dramas. An unknown disease made him sick all on a sudden at the age of forty three (9th July 1942). That disease ceased his power of speech and caused him to suffer from an intense memory loss. He lost his touch with the totality of the universe around him. He was like a reticent saint in meditation.
