The 120th birth anniversary of national poet Kazi Nazrul Islam is being celebrated in the country on Saturday in a befitting manner.

Born on May 25, 1899 at Churulia village in Burdwan district of West Bengal in India, Nazrul through his fiery poems had inspired people to fight against injustice and repression of the colonial rule.

The government and different socio-cultural and political organisations are to observe the day with elaborate programmes.

This year's theme of the birth anniversary is "Bangabandhu's Bangladesh in Nazrul's Conscience."

The birth anniversary of the poet are also being celebrated at Trishal in Mymensingh, Daulatpur in Cumilla and Chattogram with due respect by local administration.

Different educational institutions across the country as well as all the Bangladeshi embassies abroad will also observe the day.

The Nazrul Institute and Shilpakala Academy will also organise programmes marking the day.

The cultural affairs ministry and different organisations paid tributes to the poet placing wreaths at his grave beside the Central Mosque of Dhaka University in the morning.
