GUWAHATI, July 30 - Organised in sync with late Hiren Bhattacharjya�s 88th birth anniversary, this year too Hiren Bhattacharjya Nyas here celebrated the occasion amidst the global pandemic, an e-mail received here stated.
The Nyas, this year uploaded a video titled Bhalpowar Dikshou Batere through the You Tube channel. The video comprises songs sung by eminent singers like Zubeen Garg, Anindita Paul, Tarali Sarma and Gayatri Hazarika, remembering the legendary �People�s Poet� on the occasion of his birth anniversary.
While Zubeen sung from his studio, Anindita did so from her residence in Mumbai. Gayatri Hazarika and Tarali Sarma recently released videos with songs by the poet. A few of his poems were recited by Abani Bora, Melody Patgiri and Indrajit Das. The video was composed by Sorai Sapori under the tutelage of Nayan Prasad and Abani Bora.
�The key word in Hiren Da�s poetry is love. Similarly, the key word in Hiren Da�s life was love. Now-a-days we all feel very lonely because we suffer from self love. But Hiren Da was connected with people, while his love for others floweth over, even as others too showered him with unfettered love,� observed Dr Ram Kumar Mukhopadhyay, an eminent writer from West Bengal while remembering Late Hiren Bhattacharjya on his 88th birth anniversary through a You Tube video uploaded by Hiren Bhattacharjya Nyas.
�Apart from bhalobasa, another key feature of his poetry is sabuj - green is the connotation for youth. He had deep love for the young people and he always believed that he can take rebirth by connecting himself with the young ones,� added Dr Mukhopadhyay.
Dr Mukhopadhyay recited some of his poems and analysed unique capabilities of the poet�s evergreen works.
