Bangla known as Bengali globally is one of the principal languages in the world that formed Bengali nation and established a national independent state Bangladesh. From the very ancient time Bengali people engage in a broad spectrum of artistic activity. Traditional, classical and nonclassical. Besides classical music and dance tradition, they also display a strong penchant for nonclassical popular forms. The people of Bangladesh, for instance, created many unique popular music genres, such as baul and marfati etc. Originated from idealist lifestyle and philosophy. Bangladesh is a land of poetry and song. The modern period has produced the Nobel Prize-winning romantic world poet Rabindranath Tagore, rebel poet Kazi Nazrul Islam-national poet of Bangladesh, poet of nature Jibanananda Das, folk poet Jasim Uddin and great modern poets Farrukh Ahmed, Syed Ali Ahsan, Ahsan Habib, Shamsur Rahman, Al Mahmud, Shahid Quadri, Fajal Shahabuddin, Abdul Mannan Syed, Syed Shamsul Haque, Dilwar and so on who should be translated for world poetry lovers. We, Prodigy Published wish to publish their great Bengali poems into English in future. Besides Bengali poetry a remarkable number of Bengali bilingual or English poets are actively and powerfully creative in contemporary English poetry and literature. They contribute lots to promote poetry and represent their country globally. They are often published in the world-renowned anthologies, magazines, newspapers, journals and channels and participated in international poetry festivals, translated and awarded globally. Shikdar Mohammed Kibriah is one of them who is globally most prominent poet, poetry promoter and poetic personality in the contemporary world. He is not only a poet but also a philosopher. His poetry in nature is based on philosophic aesthetics. In honor of his great contribution in world poetry, we have happily decided to publish his poetic and literary creativities step by step. "Bradley's Brother", a philosophic poetry collection by Shikdar Mohammed Kibriah was our 1st edition. "A Banyan Man" is the 2nd from our publication. We hope poetry lover world will surely love this book of a philosophic world poet Shikdar Mohammed Kibriah.
