The poems of poet AbulHasan was recited in a programme in Toronto on April 21 at Mizan Complex in Danforth, Toronto.
Kobi or kObita, a Toronto-based literary organization, organized the programme to remember Poet AbulHasan (1947–1975).
Abul, who came first in the Asian Poetry Competition held in 1970, occupies an important place in modern Bengali poetry, though he wrote for only a decade. His poems reflect feelings of grief, self-abnegation, and loneliness. They are preoccupied with visions of death and ideas of separation. Among his volumes of poems are Raja Jaay Raja Ase (1972), Je TumiHoronKoro (1974) and PrithokPalongko (1975). The poetic play OraKayekjan (1988) and AbulHasanerGalpaSanggraha (1990) were published after his death. He received the Bangla Academy Literary Award (1975) for poetry and the EkusheyPadak (1982) posthumously.
