Kazi Nazrul Islam

Mr Kamal Arora, Chairman of the Chandigarh Sangeet Natak Akademi, was happy to release a book of his student, Dr Sangeeta Chaudhary, tilted Kazi Nazrul Islam Ke Navrang at a function organized by the Readers and Writers Society of India (KWSI), Chandigarh, in association with T.S. Central State Library, Sector 17, Chandigarh.
He said the book was in Hindi and "I hope it will become quite popular in North India where very few people know about Kazi Nazrul Islam".

Kazi Nazrul Islam is a much respected legendary figure born in India in 1899, now West Bengal. He spent his last four years - -- 1972 to 1976 ---in Bangladesh. Dr I. D. Singh, founder President of the RWSI, says in his Foreword to the book that a multitalented genius, Nazrul Islam contributed extensively to literature, music, drama and poetry.

He wrote 4000 songs, was a music director for a number of Bengali films. A journalist, a revolutionary for a humanist, a political and social activist, he was ivist, he was against all kinds of bigotry and oppression.

He created the first Bengali gazals. In recognition of his remarkable contribution, in 1960, the Indian government awarded him the Padam Bhushan. The Bangladesh government conferred on him the status of the National Poet in 1972. In 1974, Dhaka University awarded him an honorary D.Litt.

Dr ID Singh pointed out, “The book in your hands is specific about Nazrul’s revival of Indian classical music ragas that had nearly vanished with the passage of time. With his ingenuity, he created ragas by giving them new ‘swars’ (tunes). Now these are so popular among performers and audience."

Dr Sangeeta Chaoudhary is a versatile performing artist besides being the author of three books on music which were well received by readers. She is the recipient of about 26 awards, six of these being “Nazrul Awards” from different institutions.

Dr Sangeeta Choudhary is making efforts to make the people of this area aware of the music of Bengal.
