Tribute to Faiz Ahmed on his third death anniversary

Tribute to Faiz Ahmed on his third death anniversary

Dhaka: Yesterday (February 20) marked the 3rd death anniversary of veteran rhymester, writer and journalist Faiz Ahmed.
Born at Basaildog village in Munshiganj on May 2, 1928, Faiz took up writing early in his life. In 1944, when he was only 16, his first essay Nam Bibhrat was published in Shishu Sawgat. Son of Golam Mostafa Chowdhury, Faiz was the fifth among nine siblings. He took up journalism in 1948. In the years that followed, he became chief reporter of the Bangla dailies Ittefaq, Azad and Purbadesh. He joined Radio Peking in 1966 to launch its Bangla programmes. He also wrote columns for different newspapers. As a journalist he first worked for the then Calcutta (now Kolkata) based Bangla periodical Sougat. He was also chief editor and managing director of the state-run news agency Bangladesh Sangbad Sangstha (BSS).
A communist and lifelong bachelor, Faiz wrote more than a hundred books including fictions and rhymes. “Madhyarater Ashwarohi”, “Satyababu Mara Gechhen”, “Nandane Nandini”, “Agartala Mamla-Sheikh Mujib O Banglar Bidroho” and “Rajnitir Gotidhara” are among his popular books.
Faiz Ahmed associated with journalism for nearly six decades not only had carved out a niche for himself, but in the process earned rare reputation of professional integrity, honesty and courage that have few parallels. He set such examples in journalism that is simply incomparable. Besides, he also believed in the progressive political ideology which promotes ideas of social equality and rightful share of the luckless downtrodden and poor in the economic affairs of the state.
A freedom fighter, Faiz Ahmed was associated with many progressive and national movements beginning from the language movement. Faiz was also involved with cultural activities. He was the founder of Sammilito Sangskritik Jote. He was elected syndicate member of Dhaka University and Jahangirnagar University for three years each. In 1960, he became a member of the undivided Communist Party. He was also with the Ghatak-Dalal Nirmul Committee.
Faiz received the Ekushey Padak, Bangla Academy Padak and Shishu Academy Award for his journalistic excellence and contributions to society and literature.

স্যান্ডউইচের দামে দেহ বিক্রি করছেন গ্রিক নারীরা!

ভেঙে পড়ছে গ্রিসের অর্থনীতি। দুই মেয়াদে ক্ষমতায় এসেও সিপ্রাস সরকার চিত্রটা পাল্টাতে পারেনি। দিন দিন বাড়ছে বেকারত্ব। গোটা দেশটার আর্থ-সামাজিক…
