Zaman, thank you for uploading this photo, my dear friend. It made me curious about the Poet Kazi Nazrul! So I went on search and found a treasure of poetry and a grand personality, who, with his talent is timeless and above all civilisations and cultures. Among his wonderful poetry, I also found the following precious pearl!
'Man has brought the burning, scorching heat of the sunny day; Woman has brought peaceful night, soothing breeze and cloud. Man comes with desert-thirst; woman provides the drink of honey. Man ploughs the fertile land; woman sows crops in it turning it green. Man ploughs, woman waters; that earth and water mixed together, brings about a harvest of golden paddy.'
Thank you again!
Warmest regards of friendship, May
Dear May,though I wish to call Margrit ! ....,many thanks for the beautiful comments,this is one of the causes that I adore and admire your friendship,.....Zaman
May,.........The poem written infront of the grave in Bengali as seen in the photograph is translated as below, Weary of struggles, I, the great rebel,
Shall rest in quiet only when I find
The sky and the air free of the piteous groans of the oppressed.
Only when the battle fields are cleared of jingling bloody sabres
Shall I, weary of struggles, rest in quiet,
I the great rebel.
Zaman, thank you, my friend for your words of friendship and for the touching poem inscription on the grave of Kazi Nazrul.
What a wonderful personality! - It's sad, but I fear he won't find his peace, since the world doesn't seem to be able to free herself of misery and of bloody conflicts. We all need many more rebels with his wisdom and courage.
Zaman, I have been watching the news on TV about the fire disaster in Dhaka. So many people, so many young women, who died so dreadfully.
I feel with their families,
Margrit,let met answer the last comment first.It is so sad!The workers, poor young girls,most of them between 16-25,were unable to get through narrow exits,most of the doors were locked.
The number of dead may rise above 150.
Working conditions at these factories are very poor, overcrowding and locked fire doors are common,trapping hundreds of workers,with little respects to safety laws.
Bangladesh has around 4,500 garment factories and is the world's fourth biggest exporter of ready-made clothing.
