Bangla Academy to remember Poet Alaol

In memory of Poet Syed Alaol, Bangla Academy today arranges a seminar at its Poet Shamsur Rahman Seminar Hall.

Presided over by Bangla Academy Chairman, National Professor Anisuzzaman, Professor Golam Mustafa will deliver a lecture on poet Alaol at the event.

Born in 1607 in Jalalpur village in Fatwabad Pargana of Faridpur district, Alaol was one of the greatest poets of medieval Bangla literature.
His writings include ‘Ragtalnama’, ‘Padmavati’ (1648), ‘Satimayana-Lor-Chandrani’ (1659), ‘Saptapaykar’ (1665), ‘Saifulmuluk

Badiuzzamal’ (1669), and ‘Sikandarnama’ (1673). Alaol’s poems possess an urbanity and a sensibility reflective of court culture.

He is called the ‘Panditkavi’ as his poems are a mixture of emotion and intellect.
