-The influence of personal events that made me a poet-
–I was moved by a failed love affair with the intense emotions of adolescence, who almost unconsciously wrote certain emotional lines. But the personal event that most inspired me to write poetry was my mother’s great love for literature. Mom read a lot. He was just reading to us, he was telling fairy tales. The melody of my mother’s doll created a wave of imagination and rhythm in my child’s mind.

On the contrary, I can say that I am impressed by the writings of those who read, for example, I am obsessed with reading the poetry of the Nobel Prize-winning Swedish poet Thomas Transtomer, even after winning the Nobel Prize ago 20-25 years old. ‘Sonali Kabin’ by Al Mahmud, the poetic piece ‘Nurladin’s Sara Jeeban’ by Syed Shamsul Haque or ‘Paraner Gaheen Bhitar’, if I could write that I wanted to read a lot of sonnets!
