Introduction

This is a moderated discussion forum dedicated to the wonderful life and works of Kazi Nazrul Islam, popularly known as the Rebel Poet. Even though he is the national poet of Bangladesh, he is probably also a true world poet.

This discussion group is coordinated by the website, Kazi Nazrul Islam Page. Through networking of the Nazrul enthusiasts around the world, this forum will pursue the following objectives:

  1. To create greater awareness about the life and contributions of Nazrul;
  2. To help introduce Nazrul and his works outside Bangla language;
  3. To make as much of Nazrul's works available online for the new generation of people of Bangla-speaking origin;
  4. To engage the interest of Nazrul lovers to translate more of his works in other languages;
  5. To share information about various Nazrul related events; and
  6. To coordinate additional enrichment and expansion of Kazi Nazrul Islam Page as a unique online depository of information resources related to Nazrul.
