Do you know the extent to which one can pardon? Do you know of some acts which can never be pardoned? Quamrul Hassan, magnanimous Quamrul Hassan could never pardon some acts. Hatred and bitterness, curses and satire made his wrist strong, his pen sharp, his brush intense. He did not pardon the Pakistan of 1971, the man-made famine of 1974, his former beloved, the arch shameless dictator. Do you know his eyes stiffened into stone hatred and bitterness? Day and night he heard laughter of tigers and jackals and crocodiles and monkeys and donkeys and snakes.

Till the early seventies, rickshaws were the normal mode of transportation in Dhaka. Even today, this inexpensive, environment friendly, non-polluting form of transportation is a way of life for thousands of people: the men who ply rickshaws, and those who make, repair, or embellish them, as well as those who ride on them. Rickshaws are often the only form of affordable transportation during partial flooding or heavy monsoon rains. Decorated rickshaws have been called moving masterpieces.

“Muharram and the villagers have come, Drunk with excitement, singing jan songs...” Thus a twentieth century poet describes the intensely emotional Muslim festival of Muharram from which many of the songs known as jarigan in Bangladesh have originated. These narrative songs, too epic in their dimension to be called ballads, blend influences from sacred and secular Perso-Arabic literature of the Middle East with compositional roots in the epic poetry of South Asia.
