How [poet] Kazi Nazrul Islam wanted his life to be celebrated

Shimi Chaudhury shared a link.
‎"Jadi Aar Bashi Na Baze", a Najrul poem, recited by Kazi Sabyasachi, and Bansuri accompaniment by Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia (Now).

If only we honored Nazrul the way he wanted us to, the world be such a better place for all. If you listen carefully, he did not want us to engage in talks and festivities in his memory. Instead he thought that the best accolade for him would be to extend a helping hand to the people who need it.

Prof Muzaffar Ahmed: An outstanding Bangaldeshi who dared to love his country and speak for its disenfranchised people

Bangladesh and humanity lost a relentless soldier of human rights and dignity, a brilliant scholar/practitioner of political economy and public enterprise, a citizen of uncommon valor, an outstanding Bangladeshi [who loved his country and its people more than anything else] and a beautiful soul. 
-- M Chaudhury
