Please share your thoughts about the future of literature. When u start writing? I am so optimistic, future of literature is very bright. Beforehand there was only printed version. Now added electronic version. These two jointly are taking literature forward. Also translation can spread Cologne of literature. We are lagging behind for lack of perfect and rich translation of our literature. Yet I am not passimi pessimistic about this. One day, I hope, our writings will be scattered all over the world.

The Good and the Bad. Who is winning in nowadays? Where there is light, there is darkness, even future. Shadows of cloud come for a while, be busy in slavery, release sweat running behind beauty, and be lost being under sharp edge of time. Rose is rose whatever name you call it.

How many books have you written? And where can we find your books? So far six poetry books have been published to my credit. Besides this, there is one book translated in English which includes poems selected from those six books. These books are available in Rokomari, Batighar and Pathak Samabesh, Dhaka. Also available at Batighar, Chittagong, Khabar Bitan, Cox’s Bazar and publisher Tritiyo Chokhe.

The book. E book or Hardcover book. What will be the future? Looking back, we see, people in ancient times used to write in tree buckles, leather and on stones. As time evolved, men invented paper to write on. Now printed and e-books are available for the readers. E-book readers are increasing day by day. According to many, future of printed books is at stake. But I don’t think so. Where there is no honey, there is no bee? To touch a printed book, open it before eyes and read it brings a lot of satisfaction to the readers. So it will not vanish, but survive with glory.

A wish for 2023. A phrase from your book. In 2023 personally I want peace, not war, in the whole world. An enlightened caravan of new dreams march on forward with mutual love. May humanity prevail all the time.

Art magic in painting imagination is rural,

Root recalls migratory meditation-silently

History in Primitive style, mystery of realization

Carpentry job is my tradition.
