Jibanananda Das and his Banalata Sen

This article was written by Biplob Kishore Deb and he wrote it nearly 1 year ago. You can read the article and know more about Banalata Sen. What I like about the poem is that Jibanananda Das has made a nice combination of urban life, natural beauty and love of woman. That is why, I love this poem and it has the musical quality that very few Bengali poems have. Many of us love to recite it when we are alone or when we are with others.

Jibanananda Das was extremely a talented person but he did not care about earthly matters. Actually, those days, there were not too many sources of earning money. Jibanananda Das dedicated his life for writing poetry and he was very successful. He successfully created a place for himself in Bangla literature. No poet in Bangla literature could write about nature like him. He is indeed the Wordsworth of Bangla literature.

  3. As a nature lover my first choice is the poetry of Jibonanonda Dash. His mother Kusum kumari Dash wrote ” (আমাদের দেশে হবে সেই ছেলে কবে/ কথায় না বড় হয়ে কাজে বড়ো হবে” Jibonanonda had fulfilled his mother expectation. This lonely boy spent his life through severe poverty. Oh!! “Bonolota sen” my beloved poem. I never forget this verses. Because as a village boy I spent my lonely time reciting this verses.

    ” সমস্ত দিনের শেষে শিশিরের শব্দের মতন
    সন্ধ্যা আসে; ডানার রৌদ্রের গন্ধ মুছে ফেলে চিল;
    পৃথিবীর সব রঙ নিভে গেলে পাণ্ডুলিপি করে আয়োজন
    তখন গল্পের তরে জোনাকির রঙে ঝিলমিল;”
