Sanchita:Kaji Najrul Islam Part 2

As I have mentioned in my earlier post Sanchita: Kaji Najrul Islam Part 1 that some people have tried to raise a comparison between Tagore and Najrul but the truth is Najrul has always respected Tagore as “Gurudev”, there was a good bonding between them and a strong relation.

The Book Sanchita Najrul dedicated to Tagore; in the preface it was written “বিশ্বকবিসম্রাট শ্রীরবীন্দ্রনাথ ঠাকুর শ্রীশ্রীচরণারবিন্দেষু”(Dedicated to Biswakobisamrat Sri Rabindranath Tagore)

Another Interesting fact I would like to share is…the birth place of Najrul Islam is hardly a 45 minutes of distance from my village, where some of my family members used to visit for their job purpose.

Now some of my fav lines from his poem titled “Manush”(Hindi:-Manushya. English: – Human Being)

মানুষেরে ঘৃণা করি,

ও’ কারা কোরান, বেদ, বাইবেল
চুম্বিছে মরি মরি,

ও’ মুখ হইতে কেতাব গ্রন্থ
নাও জোর ক’ রে কেড়ে

যাহারা আনিলো গ্রন্থ-কেতাব
সেই মানুষেরে মেরে।

পূজিছে গ্রন্থ ভন্ডের দল!
মূর্খরা সব শোনো,

মানুষ এনেছে গ্রন্থ;
গ্রন্থ আনেনি মানুষ কোনো।

Translation :—Who are those people busy to kiss the Quaran, Bible and Vedas by hating the human race? Snatch those holy books from those people; by killing those people who have brought these holy books, the fraud people are busy to worship these books, Stupid people, you should realize it deeply that it’s the human beings who have created  these books…these books have not created the human race.

ও কে ?  চণ্ডাল ?  চমকাও কেন ?  নহে ও ঘৃণ্য জীব !

ওই হতে পারে হরিশ্চন্দ্র  , ওই শ্মশানের শিব ।

আজ চণ্ডাল কাল হতে পারে মহাযোগী – সম্রাট ,

তুমি কাল তারে অর্ঘ্য দানিবে, করিবে নান্দী পাঠ ।

রাখাল বলিয়া কারে কর হেলা,   ও হেলা কাহারে বাজে !

হয়ত গোপনে ব্রজের গোপাল এসেছে রাখাল সাজে !

,                             চাষা বলে কর ঘৃণা !

দেখো চাষা রূপে লুকায়ে জনক বলরাম এলোকিনা ?

Translation :—Who is he? Chandal? Why are you surprised? He is not a man of hatred
He can be the King Harishchandra or Lord Shiva
Today he is a chandal but tomorrow he can be saint or a Great emperor,
Then you will worship him or will bow down to him .
Whom you are ignoring by considering as a cow boy,
May be Krishna has come in disguise of cow boy.
You hate him because he is a farmer!!!!!
Pleaes check may be Janak(King) Balaram has come in disguise.

Chandal…Low caste hindu who works in cemetery.
