Biography : Kazi Nazrul Islam


Kazi Nazrul Islam (কাজী নজরুল ইসলাম (24 May 1899 – 29 August 1976), Bidrohi Kobi (Rebel Poet), known popularly as Nazrul, was a Bengali poet, musician and revolutionary who pioneered poetic works espousing intense spiritual rebellion against fascism and oppression. His poetry and nationalist activism earned him the popular title of Bidrohi Kobi (Rebel Poet). Accomplishing a large body of acclaimed works through his life, Nazrul is officially recognised as the national poet of Bangladesh and highly commemorated in India. He also composed the Bangladesh military march "The Song of Youth", now known as "Chal Chal Chal".

Born into a Bengali Muslim Quazi (Kazi) family, Nazrul received religious education and worked as a muezzin at a local mosque. He learned of poetry, drama, and literature while working with theatrical groups. After serving in the British Indian Army, Nazrul established himself as a journalist in Calcutta. He assailed the British Raj in India and preached revolution through his poetic works, such as "Bidrohi" ("The Rebel") and "Bhangar Gaan" ("The Song of Destruction"), as well as his publication "Dhumketu" ("The Comet"). His impassioned activism in the Indian independence movement often led to his imprisonment by British authorities. While in prison, Nazrul wrote the "Rajbandir Jabanbandi" ("Deposition of a Political Prisoner"). Exploring the life and conditions of the downtrodden masses of India, Nazrul worked for their emancipation.

Nazrul's writings explore themes such as love, freedom, and revolution; he opposed all bigotry, including religious and gender. Throughout his career, Nazrul wrote short stories, novels, and essays but is best known for his poems, in which he pioneered new forms such as Bengali ghazals. Nazrul wrote and composed music for his nearly 4,000 songs (including gramophone records), collectively known as Nazrul geeti (Nazrul songs), which are widely popular today. In 1942 at the age of 43 he began suffering from an unknown disease, losing his voice and memory. It is often said, the reason was slow poisoning by British Government but later a medical team in Vienna diagnosed the disease as Morbus Pick,[5] a rare incurable neurodegenerative disease. It caused Nazrul's health to decline steadily and forced him to live in isolation for many years. Invited by the Government of Bangladesh, Nazrul and his family moved to Dhaka in 1972, where he died four years later.

If you're single, I'm sure you've asked yourself more than once: "Why me?" As for the answer, chances are your friends and family may have been more than, ahem, generous in offering their opinions, and I'll bet that little voice in your head has had a say, too. But before you find fault in what you're doing on the dating scene, take a look at what you're thinking. You may simply be suffering from a slight spell of dating pessimism.

I look at dating this way: sometimes it's not about what actually happens on dates; rather, it's your explanation of what happened that makes all the difference in your attitude about love, your dating style, and the energy you're radiating in the presence of your matches. It's a theory that Martin Seligman, Ph.D., the father of positive psychology and author of Authentic Happiness, calls your "explanatory style." He says that pessimists explain their problems as pervasive ("No one likes me"), permanent ("I'll be alone forever") and personal ("I'm not gorgeous enough"). But you're far more likely to land in a great relationship if you're an optimist, which means it's time to start looking at your negative dating experiences as "atypical," "temporary" and "not about me."

Do you love your spouse? How does your spouse know you love them? Maybe you tell them every day. Maybe every time you go separate ways your last words are “I love you.” And you probably do love them and vice versa. What if the words you say, don’t necessarily spell love for your spouse?

An article I recently read on Your Tango discusses two behaviors which lead to a healthy and loving relationship. One of which is knowing your spouse’s love language.

The Five Love Languages is a book by Dr. Gary Chapman, which discusses five different ways people express and receive love. The words I love you should be expressed in some way. But when they are expressed they may not be received as love. You do it because you love your spouse, but your spouse may never interpret it that way.

No matter what your love language is, or what your spouse’s love language is, the important thing is to take action. Show your love in action. I’ve shared 25 love actions below, broken down into the five love languages.

গুগলে চাকরি পেতে পরীক্ষায় বেশি জিপিএ থাকতে হবে, এ ধারণা করা ঠিক নয়। গুগলে চাকরি পেতে জিপিএ কিংবা পরীক্ষায় খুব ভালো নম্বর পাওয়ার বিষয়টির তেমন কোনো গুরুত্বই নেই। কারণ পরীক্ষার ফল দেখে কারও সম্পর্কে ধারণা করা যায় না-এ কথাগুলো নিউইয়র্ক টাইমসকে এক সাক্ষাত্কারে জানিয়েছেন গুগলের মানবসম্পদ বিভাগের ভাইস প্রেসিডেন্ট লাজলো বক।

লাজলোর মতে, ধীরে ধীরে প্রচলিত শিক্ষাগত যোগ্যতা হিসেবে বিশ্ববিদ্যালয় বা কোনো প্রাতিষ্ঠানিক ডিগ্রি ছাড়া গুগলকর্মীর সংখ্যা বাড়ছে। গুগলের কিছু কিছু টিমে ১৪ শতাংশ কর্মীর প্রাতিষ্ঠানিক কোনো ডিগ্রি নেই। এ অবস্থায় অনেকেই জিজ্ঞাসা করেন গুগলের মতো প্রতিষ্ঠানে প্রাতিষ্ঠানিক শিক্ষার গুরুত্ব না থাকলে চাকরি মিলবে কীভাবে? এ বিষয়ে লাজলো বকের মুখ থেকেই আমরা শুনব গুগলে চাকরি পাওয়ার শর্তগুলো।

‘আমাকে ভুল বুঝবেন না’ লাজলো শুরু করেন এভাবেই। পরীক্ষায় কেউ ভালো ফল করলে বা ভালো গ্রেড পেলে চাকরি পাওয়ার ক্ষেত্রে কোনো সমস্যা নেই। তবে গুগলে চাকরি পেতে গণিত ও কম্পিউটিং, বিশেষ করে কোড লেখার দক্ষতা জরুরি। যদি কেউ শিক্ষাপ্রতিষ্ঠানের পরীক্ষায় ভালো গ্রেড অর্জন করে এবং সত্যিকারের দক্ষতা দেখাতে পারে, তারা গুগলে চাকরির জন্য অবশ্যই আবেদন করতে পারে। গণিত আর কোড এ দুটি দক্ষতা চাকরিপ্রার্থীর জন্য একটা বাড়তি সুবিধা করে দিতে পারে। তবে এ দুটির বাইরে গুগলে চাকরি পেতে আরও অনেক দক্ষতাই অর্জন করতে হবে।
