In May of 1964 Kalyan Majumdar visited Nazrul at his CIT Road Apartment in Calcutta. Due to illness the poet wasn't speaking clearly. Mr. Majumdar's mother was a fan of Nazrul. She helped him memorize some Nazrul poems soon after he started to speak. Nazrul is like a family member to him. He enjoys reciting Nazrul poems. In fact, he has recited from memory the extended poem "Bidrohi" at many social/cultural meets. He also takes interest in music and plays several musical instruments. His short stories have been published in Nabokallol, a well-known magazine from Calcutta. He was born and raised in India although his parents came from Noakhali, Bangladesh. He has lived in the US for 20+ yrs and now is a citizen. Mr Majumdar is a commodity trader.
He graciously and patiently helped to further expand and update the Nazrul Audio Collection.
