Was he a politically correct voice in a politically corrupt nation? In fact, these are the characteristics Azad religiously avoided, or so it seemed from the stream of writings and commentaries that he produced during the last decade of his life. Being a freethinker, he often acted like a rebel, perhaps to defy labeling, or to vent his disenchantment over the deteriorating scenario of his beloved motherland.
He was, in fact, a maverick among the academics of Dhaka University, where he used to teach in the Department of Bangla. As a writer, Azad was critically engaged with his surroundings.
Publicly known for his passionate and opinionated temperament, Azad had a mellow private side to his character that many may not have known before his death. He was a family man with a strong attachment to his children and wife.
In his professional life, during many an academic procedure, while making crucial official decisions along with his colleagues, Azad used to concede his position to respect the other person's opinion. Humayun Azad was born on April 28, in the village of Rarikhal of Bikrampur district.
The village was already famous for being the birth place of Sir Jagadish Chandra Bose, a scientist of international repute. As he secured a position in the merit list his future course led him to the highest seat of learning, Dhaka University.
Abu Kaiser, one of his fellow students in the department of Bangla, Dhaka University, remembers Azad as the student who used to don "a Bonde Ali Miah-like hair-do" and "whose reticence belied his intelligence and his goonpona creativity ". And he went on to add that Azad used to befriend only the meritorious students of his class and had little time to waste in idle chit chat. However, Azad stayed away from the hubbub of real polity," wrote Kaisar in a recently published article. But Azad first became famous for a political poem he wrote during his student life.
It even went beyond that when people started to consider it a testimony to the political climate of the '60s, which was severely subjugated to the military rule. The poem was published in Kolkata in the weekly "Desh" and the "Amrito". Mashukul Haq, editor of the Observer Magazine and a classmate of Azad remembers him as a brilliant student "who came from a science background and switched to Bangla and turned out to be the best in his class.
Haq considers him a voice against those who use religion as a political tool. Latifa Kohinoor, who later became the wife of Azad, and her numerous friends were virtually in awe of Azad's intellectual capacity to comment on every other subject. It was poetry and letter that brought the couple together; till this day Latifa considers Azad her favourite poet.
The couple got married on October 12, and they " lived in Scotland for one year". Right after Azad came back from his study in Edinburgh, where he completed his PHD in , they started their lives in a joint family.
When the children were born, it was Azad who used to take care of them most of the time as my job kept me away from home from nine in the morning till five in the afternoon," Latifa remembers. For a man of letter, he was too anchored in the peace and quiet of family life.
His two daughters and only son constituted the centre of his life. Azad started his professional life as a teacher in Chittagong College.
After a brief stint at that college he joined Chittagong University. Later he joined as a teaching staff of Jahangirnagar University, where he taught Bangla from to before finally joining Dhaka University in as an Associate Professor.
It was not until that he was made a Professor where he remained so till his sad demise. In , while he was still a teacher at Chittagong University, Azad got a scholarship at Edinburgh University. It was here that he, with his grounding in Bangla literature, got the opportunity to delve into linguistics. During his three year study he produced his first thesis on language, which was his PhD paper: "Pronominalisation in Bangla".
Although he made his name as a poet while he was still a student, his essays were revered by many from the beginning. It was , and the novel was well received by the readers.
They recognised in it a genre of its own kind. In fact, through this first novel he started enjoying a wide readership for the first time. The serially published novel was later reintroduced in book form.
It came out during the Bangla Academy 'Book Fair' in and it was one of the much-sought-after books of that year that saw its third edition during the month-long fair. Azad's wife Latifa Kohinoor remembers the time as one of the most crucial landmarks in their lives.
Azad not only became a popular writer, he soon positioned himself as a popular spokesman in his community, and it was from this point on that his ideas started to receive flak from a certain quarter steeped in despotic religious beliefs. There was no financial reward for what he was doing, so it was I who kind of challenged him by asking, 'will you be able to write novels?
Azad's answer was unmistakably bold. This was a display of his characteristic confidence. Sajjad Sharif, a poet and one of the Deputy Editors of the Daily Prothom Alo, believes that Azad's most important contribution was in linguistics.
After all these years we still do not have our own grammar. Humayun Azad understood the mutating nature of grammar and realised the importance of liberating it from its present English and Sanskrit foundation," Sharif adds. He submitted his plan to the Bangla Academy. It was written in an essay form and was published in a journal," continues Sharif, who thinks the Academy failed to understand the depth and breadth of his proposal.
Sharif believes that the most important works of Azad are the two hefty volumes of his compiled works on Bangla language where the best write-ups of the last one and half hundred years are compiled. As a writer who produced 70 books, Azad's acknowledgement mostly came from his readers.
He was one of the writers whose collections of essays could become best sellers. For his contribution to literature he received the Bangla Academy award in Syed Mehdi Momin, a journalist of The Independent, writes in an article that Azad never wanted to associate himself with the culture of sycophancy which he was surrounded by.
He himself was a man who never swerved from what he felt like saying. Even "his literal handshake with death could not subdue his spirit," Momin wrote. A few days before he left for Germany on another scholarship from PEN an international organisation of poets, essayists and novelists , Azad, as usual, lambasted the religious right, yet he ended his speech on a positive note. He said that the "future of Bangladesh is not that bleak".
This is the first comprehensive discussion in Bengali about feminism and the difficulties Bengali women face in daily life.
In the work, Azad takes readers on a journey through the broad swathes of experience feminist writers in South Asia have gone through in their writings. Azad is critical of acclaimed figures, notably Rabindranath Tagore and Bankim Chandra Chatterjee , for what he considers their anti-feminist perceptions of life.
Azad analytically compiles the feminist ideas of the west, which underlie the feminist contributions of the subcontinent's socio-political reformers. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
