National Poet Kazi Nazrul Islam - Reminiscence

"To those who complain why I'm not like them: Does the nightingale's songs belong to anyone? Can you call wild flowers your own? Just because I was born into a certain community or society doesn't mean it owns me. I belong to the world and all its corners. I'm a devotee of eternal radiance and because I can rise above petty communalism, I'm a poet." said Kazi Nazrul Islam, while speaking at a reception Albert Hall, Calcutta on December 15, 1929.
