Dr. Tapan Bagchi

2nd position

What are your feelings after getting the award? 

This is my third time getting an award for Celebrating Life. While the excitement of getting an award for the first time is not quite there, I am really grateful for this nonetheless at this always provides a huge boost to me and my career. 

Do you think that this Award will inspire you to work harder?

Definitely. I had written 50 songs before I received my first Celebrating Life award, and now the amount has racked up to 450. Needless to say, the event has changed my life to a great extent after I received those prestigious awards. 

How would your greatest influence think of you, knowing that you won such a prestigious award?

The greatest influence in my life has been my late father, Tustacharan Bagchi. When I was little, I used to be a very good student. But after some time, I fell off and a big void was created for various reasons, which hampered my studies to a great extent. Now, I am successful as a writer and have also completed my PHD. If my father was still alive, he would proudly say that his son is doing well in life. 


Harun ur Rashid

1st position

What are your feelings after getting this award?

I am extremely happy, as this is the first award I've ever gotten. Thank you so much, I'm very grateful to Celebrating Life for giving me such an opportunity to express myself. To be honest, I still cannot believe that I made it to such a big platform. 

Do you think that this Award will inspire you to work harder?

It will definitely help me to work harder now. You see, I never took writing seriously and I never concentrated that well. However, now this gives me an initiative to write. Physically I am very ill, but now I feel like this has given me a new lease of life. 

What would your greatest influence think of you, knowing that you received such a prestigious award?

I have always admired the likes of the great Abid Anwar and Md. Rafiquzzaman. I am not quite sure how they would react, but I would hope that they would be very proud and generous about my achievement as I've modeled my writing after them. I would be honored to have my named uttered in the same statement as them.


Kumar Deep

3rd position

What are your feelings after getting this award?

I am absolutely elated. I do not even know what to say, this came as a big surprise to me. This is my first award, and I am very grateful to be getting it at such a prolific platform.

Do you think this award will inspire you to work harder?

Of course it will. I have been writing for approximately 7 years, and this is my first major achievement in this field. It is safe to say that Celebrating Life has changed my life forever. I can only hope that this is the start of many more great thinks to come regarding me as a writer.

What would your greatest influence think of you, now that you've received such a prestigious award?

My greatest influence, without a doubt is Shamsur Rahman sir. Whilst he was alive, he complemented me on my work and that is still one of my biggest achievements in life. I have also done a research on him. If he was alive, it would be safe to say that he would have been very proud of me as his ardent follower and fan.
