A collection of poems by poet Mustafa Majid was launched at a programme at Jatiya Press Club on Saturday.
Mowla Brothers, publisher of the volume, organised the launching ceremony in which professor Abul Kashem Fazlul Haque was present as chief guest.
Writer-activist Mohsin Sasrapani, poet Rabiul Hossain, and Mowla Brothers director Ahmed Mahmudul Haque were also present on the occasion.
The speakers talked about Mustafa Majid’s body of work and his style and contributions to Bangla literature in general. They underlined his leftist background that they said influenced him to write for the poor and the oppressed.
They discussed Majid’s favourite themes including social irregularities, corruption, and political expediency and discriminations facing the general people across the world.
Mustafa Majid, apart from being a poet, is also a researcher. He worked extensively on the life and construct of the Rakhaine community, and published several books on other small ethnic minorities.
He was born on April 14, 1955.
