From the turbulent times when the nation started realising the need to form a sovereign country, through the Liberation War and numerous movements against tyranny, socio-cultural crises, to the contemporary volatile days -- these personalities, whose literary careers have enriched our literature and educated, enlightened many, have been guiding the nation as lighthouses. Literary icons -- National Professor Kabir Chowdhury, Professor Zillur Rahman Siddiqui, Professor Emeritus Anisuzzaman and Hasan Azizul Haque -- were honoured by cultural organisation 'Alokito Nagori' on April 6. The event was held at Bengal Shilpalay Cafe.
The occasion was a collective celebration of the honourees' birthdays. All four were born in the month of February.
