Save Hason Raja's property

Save Hason Raja’s property


The  home of the great mystic poet, Hason Raja is located at village Rampasha under Biswanath upazila of Sylhet. His songs might still be celebrated all over Bangladesh, but his
house stands there in utmost neglect. People dump garbage near the house and
the land is in danger of falling under the clutches f the local influencials.
If the house could be restored and maintained, it could attract many visitors
and tourists. Great mystic poet Hason Raja has many popular songs. ‘Loke bole
bolery, ghar bari bala nay amar, ki ghor banaimu ami shunneri majhar’, ‘agey
Jodi janto Hason, bachbo koto din, banaito ghor bari koria rongin’ and ‘baula
ke banailo, hason rajare baula ke banailo re’ are some of the popular creations
with a unique mystic attachment. These are immensely accepted to the people of
all ages.
Hason was born at village Rampasha under Biswanath upazila of Sylhet and passed an important part of his
youth there. Huge property of his ancestral Zamindari is spread around the
area. Some members of the famous and well-to- do family are in the country and
abroad, but the historic village house has been lying uncared for due to utter
neglect for long.
Besides, the huge pond in front of the house still remains neglected. Dumping of wastes by some locals is
polluting the environment badly. Due to the lack of minimum care, it is about
to be ruined. Some local influentials are trying to grab the adjacent land and
part of the huge pond.
Locals feel the family members, well placed at home and abroad are not interested in taking care of this
property. Every day a good number of people from different areas visit the
site. The people in the village expect that initiatives should be taken to make
the site a tourist spot. Cultural events may also be organsied there.
Seeing the poor state of the site, they remember the poet’s popular song ‘matir o pinjirar majhe bondi hoia
rey, kandey Hason Rajar mon monay ray’. The state of the house
resembles the song.
