Al MahmudAl Mahmud (born 11 July, 1936) is one of the best Bangla poets and writers of Bangladesh. He is considered as one of the best Bengali poets to emerge from the 1950s.[1]He was born in Brahmanbaria District. Mahmud started his career as a journalist. He was recognized as an outstanding poet after the publication of his volume of verse, Lok Lokantor, in 1963. Later books, such as Kaler Kalosh (1966), Sonali Kabin (1966), and Mayabi Porda Dule Otho (1976), established his position as one of the most prominent poets of the country.[2]In addition to writing poetry, Al Mahmud has written short stories, novels and essays, among which 'Pankourir Rakta' and Upamohadesh are considered to be the most famous ones. He is often said as having enriched Bengali Poetry by his copious use of regional dialects. After the liberation war of Bangladesh in 1971, he joined the Daily Ganakantha as assistant editor. He was jailed for a year for being very critical of the then Awami League government. Later, he joined Bangladesh Shilpokala Academy and retired as its director.
