1971


It was an ordinary day like others
After the breakfast Akmal was getting ready for school

The school starts at midday,
It is three kilometers away.

Akmal was walking hastily,
As he was late already.

Mother was insisting him on for long,
Uncle was waiting to come along.

But Akmal was bit reluctant today
As, to him, it was a speial day.....

Allover East Bengal, there were processions
'We will not compromise, whatever the consideration'.

'We want freedom' as they uttered,
Big sound came out, police fired.

They wanted to stop them; but it was tough,
As they were committed enough.


A feeling came from within, 'Everyone of us must not hesitate'.
'This is the time to retaliate'.

To Akmal, all these were not understandable,
He could only guess that his participation in this struggle was inevitable.

He did not return home from the school
As he had greater responsibility to fulfill

Akmal participated in the fight
Which won us today's free Bangladesh and right

We have won this country for thousands sacrifice
To keep this freedom intact, we need another fight.

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
