A Nazrul song heralding Eid for 85 years


PV Desk : ‘O Mon Ramzan-er Oi Rozar Sheshey Elo Khushir Eid’, the impressive song of National Poet Kazi Najrul Islam, is completing 85 years on the day of this Eid-ul-Fitr.

The song has become an unofficial title or theme song for the Eid-ul-Fitr, heralding the biggest festival of the Muslims after the month-long fasting in Ramadan.

Every year thousands of Bangla speaking Muslims in Bangladesh and other parts of the world eagerly wait to listen to the song played on radio and television after the sighting of the new moon of the Islamic month of Shawal at the end of the fasting month of Ramadan.

As soon the song is played, it creates a wave of gratification among the people and prompts them to get ready for celebrating the Eid.
