Ranjit Singh's statue unveiled in Parliament House
Tribune News Service
New Delhi, August 21
Sikh leaders finally got their due place in the Parliament complex with the Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee today unveiling the statue of Maharaja Ranjit Singh riding a horse and the portraits of Master Tara Singh and Baba Kharak Singh, who left an impeccable mark on the polity of Punjab. The light and sound show "Sher-e-Punjab", performed by Chandi-garh-based artiste Harbux Latta, narrating the life and achievements of the Sher-e-Punjab, not only enlightened the audience but also left a mark on them. This is for the first time that the paintings of any Sikh leader have been exhibited in the Central Hall of Parliament. The portraits of shaheed Bhagat Singh and Udham Singh still await the nod to be placed in the Central Hall of Parliament. The ceremony was attended by Deputy Prime Minister L.K. Advani, Opposition leader (Lok Sabha) Sonia Gandhi, Opposition leader (Rajya Sabha) Dr Manmohan Singh, SAD president Parkash Singh Badal, SGPC chief Gurcharan Singh Tohra, Lok Sabha Speaker Manohar Joshi and National Commission for Minorities (NCM) Chairman Tarlochan Singh . The 22-foot high statue of the Maharaja has been sculpted by Ram Sutar, who had earlier sculpted the Lion of Punjab's statue installed in Amritsar. The light and sound show was the first Punjab production to be presented in the newly constructed Balayogi auditorium in the Parliament complex . Master Tara Singh and freedom fighter Baba Kharak Singh are the architects of the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) and the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC). The portraits have been made by Amritsar-based artist Phoola Rani. Master Tara Singh was born in a Punjabi Hindu Malhotra family of Rawalpindi. He is remembered for two things — steering Sikhs towards opting for India in 1947 and to campaign for the state of Punjab in independent India. The Prime Minister also unveiled the portraits of four others — Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay, Kazi Nazrul Islam, Dr K.N. Munshi and Dr B. Pattabhi Sitaramaiah Pantulu.

Chattopadhyay was the composer of the National Song "Vande Mataram", and Kazi Nazrul Islam was a revolutionary poet who brought back the glory of Bengali music as well as Indian music. Dr Munshi was a versatile personality and a great academician who vehemently denounced the British for the pitiable economic conditions which prevailed in those days and Dr Pantulu was a freedom fighter who pioneered the cooperative movement in South India.

Hon'ble Prime Minister of India and other dignitaries at the unveiling ceremony of the portrait of Shri Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay, Kazi Nazrul Islam, Baba Kharak Singh, Dr.K.M. Munshi, Dr.B. Pattabhi Sitaramaiah Pantulu and Master Tara Singh in the Central Hall, Parliament House on the 21st August, 2003.

Chakravyuha      
A  Play
 

"Chakravyuha" by Manoranjan Bhattacharya, with lyrics and music by Kazi Nazrul Islam, first performed on 23rd November 1934. The play is unique for three reasons:

    The novel explanation it offers for the traditionally accepted "motiveless malignity" of Shakuni, the set-piece villain of the Mahabharata, depicting an intriguing understanding between him and Krishna, who appear almost as partners orchestrating the Kurukshetra holocaust.

    The entrancing picture of the David-and-Jonathan-like "love passing that of woman" between Lakshman and Abhimanyu, sons of Duryodhan and Arjun respectively, who make a pact to share the kingdom between themselves, irrespective of what their elders do, if they ever become heirs to the throne. Ironically, one kills the other and is himself slain in the deadly discuss formation of the Kaurav army.

  1. An outstanding scene in which, after Abhimanyu's death, Draupadi confronts Jayadrath and her husbands in flaming agony.

The extracts that follow relate to the encounters between Shakuni, Bhishma and Krishna, and Draupadi, her husbands and Jayadrath.

Rabindranath Tagore and Kazi Nazrul Islam.

We salute these legends for making ourselves proud.

 

Rabindranath Tagore

Kazi Nazrul Islam


On 7 August 1941, Rabindranath died. Nazrul spontaneously composed two poems-'Rabihara' (Without Rabi) and 'Salam Astarabi' (Farewell, Setting Sun) -and an elegy, 'Ghumaite Dao Shranta Rabire (Let the Tired Rabi Sleep). Nazrul himself recorded 'Rabihara' and recited it on radio.


Within a year of Rabindranath's death, Nazrul himself fell ill and gradually lost his voice and his memory. His treatment at home and abroad produced no results. For 34 long years, from July 1942 to August 1976, the poet suffered this unbearable life of silence.

With consent of the Indian government, Nazrul and his family were brought to independent Bangladesh on 24 May 1972. In recognition of his contribution to Bangla literature and culture, Dhaka University awarded the poet the honorary degree of DLitt at a special convocation on 9 December 1974. In January 1976, the Bangladesh government granted him citizenship of Bangladesh and on February 21 awarded him the 'Ekushey Padak'. On 29 August 1976 the poet died at the Institute of Post Graduate Medicine and Research (now BSMM University) in Dhaka.


The national poet of Bangladesh, Kazi Nazrul Islam was buried with state honour on Dhaka University campus, on the northern side of Dhaka University mosque

Kazi Nazrul Islam said, "Even though I was born in this country (Bengal), in this society, I belong to the world
