সময় : ৩:০৩ পূর্বাহ্ণ , তারিখ : ২৪ মার্চ, ২০১৭


A documentary was made on the first martyr poetess Meherun Nesa. In 1971, Bangladesh got independence in

exchange of the honor of three million mothers and sisters. Many poet, novelist, journalist, columnist, professors and

thousands of socio-cultural personalities were killed in the struggle for freedom. Different films were created on them

at different times. However, the country's first martyr female poet Meherun Nesa had been dropped from all kinds of

arrangements. As a result, it was required to make the documentary on 'Meherun Nesa'. The documentary was directed

by the filmmaker Riaz Mahmood Mithu. This film was produced by the 'Green University of Bangladesh' and

'Shapnokola Cultural Bhubon foundation'. The director of the short film Riaz Mahmud Mithu said that this

documentary is based on the life of the 'Poet Meherun Nesa '. This documentary's data collection, research, audio-

visually recorded interviews and the shooting of junior/senior actors were all done.

On the upcoming 25th March 2017, the documentary will be shown to celebrate the 21 years of the Liberation War

Museum. This will be aired on Satellite television My TV on 31st March 2017, at 8:10 p.m along with some other TV

channels.

The poet Meherun Nesa was born on 20th August 1942 in Kolkata's Kidderpore. Her father's name was Abdur Razzak

and mother's name was Nurun Nesa. Meherun Nesa was the second child among the four children and her nickname

was Ranu. She moved with her family to East Bengal, Pakistan in 1947 after the partition of India. In 1952, at the

tender age of 10 Meherun Nesa demonstrated extraordinary talent. She then took place on almost all newspapers due to

her remarkable writing. She was involved in the Mass uprising of 1969 and was an active member of the Action

Committee. In 1970 elections, she served as an election agent in the Awami League led by Bangabandhu Sheikh

Mujibur Rahman. She along with her friends attented the Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman's speech on 7th

March, 1971. On 23 March 1971, she hoised the flag of Independent Bangladesh in her house despite of several

warnings. She was brutally killed on 27 March due to this action. She then became the first women poet martyr.
