Correct Answer - Option 2 : Kazi Nazrul Islam

The correct answer is ​Kazi Nazrul Islam.

  • Kazi Nazrul Islam was born on May 25, 1899, in Churulia village near Asansol, Bengal.
  • Nazrul remained isolated from other children in his childhood that's why he was called 'Dukkhu Miyan'.
  • He was a Bengali poet, writer, and musician.
  • His works include 'Ek Awara Ki Zindagi', 'Mukti', 'Rebel' etc.
  • The poem 'Rebel' made him famous overnight in 1922.
    • This poem became a motivational song for the revolutionaries opposing the British Raj and thus, Nazrul became famous as the 'rebel poet'.
  • In 1972, Bangladesh declared him its 'national poet'.
  • With the consent of the Government of India, he was taken to Dhaka.
  • He died in Dhaka after four years in 1976.
