Suraiya Begum needs many people’s help to make her dream come true. She sits down to write a letter to a friend who was her colleague and who now lives in the next town.

Dear Sharmila,

How are you? I’m writing to share with you a plan that I have. I know some old, physically weak and lonely people in our town. Some of them are quite well-off and some are not. But they all share one common thing that is they live alone and have no one to take care of them in sickness. Sometimes they don’t have anybody to talk to.

I have a plan. I want to set up a home for the old people where they would live like a family and we can be a part of that family, too. I need your help because I know that together we can do a lot.

Write to me soon. I’ll wait eagerly for your reply.

Your friend,

Suraiya

Hason Raja was born in 1854 in a wealthy landlord’s family in Sylhet. He did not receive much formal education. In his youth, he led a life of luxury. He had everything— money, comfort and pleasure. At one time he understood that all these are meaningless. He gave away all of his properties. He started to think deeply about the Creator, about life, death and mankind. Hason Raja wrote a lot of songs, perhaps about a thousand in number. His book called ‘Hason Udash’ was published in 1906. The book had 206 songs in it. In his songs Hason called himself ‘Crazy Hason Raja’ or the ‘Pagla Hason Raja’. A volume called ‘Hason Raja Samagra’ (Complete Works of Hason Raja) was also published. The book contained 500 poems and songs. Some of the songs were written by the poet in Hindi.

Hason Raja’s songs were always popular in Sylhet. But very soon they spread all over Bangladesh and beyond. In India’s West Bengal, some eminent folk singers made Hason’s songs popular.                                                           [Lesson — 21(B)]
