Poet Farrukh Ahmed Memorial Club

Farrukh Ahmed famous as an Islamic Renaissance poet was born in Syed family in 1918 at Majhail village on the bank of the Gorai River 12 kilometres (7.5 miles) to the north-east from Magura town. His father Syed Hatem Ali was a police inspector. While a student, Farruk Ahmed became attracted to M.N Roy’s radical humanism and got involved in left-wing politics. But before participation, he was a supporter of Pakistani ideal and the Muslim Renaissance.  Of his verse books Sat Sagorer Majhi (1944), Sirajam Munira (1952), and Naufel O Hatem (1981) are worth-mentioning. For his outstanding contribution to literature, he was given Bangla Academy Award (1960), President Award “Prize of Performance” (1961), UNESCO Award (1966), posthumous Ekushey Award (1977), and Independence Award (1980). This poet breathed his last in Dhaka in 1974.  Besides his homestead at Majhail village, there remains Farruk Ahamed’s Memorial Association.
