—Amoolya Kamalnath


 


As a citizen of Bangladesh, I am a proud Bengali. We fought for our mother language, our

independence, our freedom. I live in a country where one can see the beauty of six

seasons, soothing nature, an overwhelmed peace and the silence of a solitary moon. I feel

the freedom of a bird, and I live with love. When I selected these poems, these attributes got

priority. I hope the ku that I selected for this month will be appreciated by all. I believe that it will bring a new aura, will make all the poets more connected and will enhance the interaction

among each other as well.


Thank you all.

Kamrun Nahar

Somewhere there is also included, I hope, the different perspectives of freedom in this ku.


I thank everyone for reading and pondering over the verse. I'm greatly honoured and humbled to be…
