    “I cannot tolerate the word “late” before his [Humayun’s] name. I think writers and artists such as him cannot die; they live forever through their works,” Shaon said.

    “I had wanted to build a mural in memory of Humayun. An organisation named Sona Rong took the initiative to build it and finished it fairly quickly. They built it using a photo of Humayun taken by photographer Nasir Ali Mamun.”

    She thanked everyone involved with the project for the work.

    The architect of the mural, Hafiz Uddin Babu, who was present on the occasion, said it was an honour to build the mural of the writer as he was a fan himself.

    “It is the first mural of any writer in the country. It took us around 25 days to complete the work. I hope to build more murals of Humayun Ahmed across the country.”

    Meanwhile, Shaon said she wanted the state to take initiatives to observe Humayun’s birthday around the country.

    “I believe the government should come forward and take it upon itself to celebrate the birth anniversary of Humayun. He was a national treasure, after all.”

    Earlier, the staff of Nuhash Palli lit 800 candles around the premises at 12:01am to celebrate Humanyun’s birthday. “This is how Sir [Humayun] liked to celebrate his birthday, so we are doing it to celebrate this day and to remember him,” said Saiful Islam Bulbul, manager of Nuhash Palli.

    Earlier on Tuesday, the illustrious storyteller was laid to rest in the serenity of his favourite retreat Nuhash Palli.

    Humayun Ahmed’s four children from his first wife have offered fatiha at the grave of the celebrated writer and filmmaker at his Gazipur retreat Nuhash Palli.

    Daughters Nova Ahmed, Sheela Ahmed, Bipasha Ahmed and son Nuhash Humayun, after whom the retreat, about an hour outside Dhaka, is named, were all present.

    “His (Humayun Ahmed) grandchildren are also with them,” Nuhash Palli Manager Saiful Islam Bulbul told bdnews24.com on Friday referring to Nova and Sheela’s children.

    Though Nova, Sheela and Nuhash were present during their father’s burial, Bipasha could not attend since she was still in the USA with her mother Gultekin Khan.

    Humayun Ahmed’s first wife Gultekin Khan and their daughter Bipasha returned to Bangladesh from the US on Thursday. But Gultekin did not come to Nuhash Palli on Friday, Bulbul said.

    After spending two days at the resort, the writer’s second wife Meher Afroz Shaon returned to Dhaka on Thursday.

    Shaon, her two sons Nishad and Ninit, and her mother Tahura Ali, an MP, started for Dhaka Thursday afternoon.

    Humayun Ahmed, 64, died at a hospital in the US on July 19 after a nearly ten-month battle against colon cancer. He was buried at Nuhash Palli on Tuesday.

    The writer’s burial triggered a dispute between his second wife Meher Afroz Shaon and his other relatives. They were divided over where to lay him down and it was decided only after a day-long drama that went as high as the prime minister who delegated a state minister to resolve the issue.

    The issue was finally resolved around 3am.

    Humayun’s three children from his first wife wanted their father to be buried somewhere in Dhaka so that everyone could visit his grave easily.

    Humayun married Gultekin in 1973. They got divorced in 2003 after the writer was said to be in the middle of an affair with Shaon, his daughter Sheela’s best friend. He married Shaon after two years.

    Gultekin Khan in Dhaka after Humayun Ahmed’s burial 

    Dhaka, July 25 (bdnews24.com)

    Humayun Ahmed’s ex-wife Gultekin Khan arrived in Dhaka on Tuesday night with their youngest daughter Bipasha Ahmed.

    The celebrated writer’s younger brother Ahsan Habib on Wednesday confirmed bdnews24.com about their arrival from the United States.

    অভিমানে আড়ালেই রয়ে গেলেন গুলতেকিন

    আমেরিকায় থেকেও হুমায়ূনকে দেখতে যাননি গুলতেকিন

    গুলতেকিন হুমায়ূনকে ভীষণ ভালোবাসতেন যা ভাষায় প্রকাশ করার মতো নয়

    গুলতেকিন কি হুমায়ূন আহমেদকে ক্ষমা করতে পেরেছেন?


    The virtuoso playwright-movie director was buried on Tuesday at his self-nurtured sanctuary Nuhash Palli in Gazipur.

    His three children with Gultekin, Sheela Ahmed, Nova Ahmed and Nuhash Humayun, were present during the burial along with Humayun’s wife Meher Afroz Shaon and two sons Nishad Ahmed and Ninit Ahmed. The writer’s two brothers, Muhammad Zafar Iqbal and Ahsan Habib, and two sisters also attended the burial.

    Humayun Ahmed died on Jul 19 at a New York hospital after battling with cancer for about nine months. His first Namaz-e-Janaza was held there.

    The second and third funeral prayers were held respectively at National Eidgah ground after Shaon arrived with Humayun’s remains on Monday morning and at Nuhash Palli on Tuesday before his burial there.

    In the last few days, family members were divided on the issue of Humayun’s burial site. Shaon claimed Humayun’s last wish was to be buried at Nuhash Palli while the writer’s children with Gultekin wanted their father to be buried at the Martyred Intellectuals Graveyard at Mirpur in Dhaka, which is easily accessible to all.

    At 2:30am on Tuesday, after long negotiations, Zafar Iqbal told the media they had decided to bury Humayun at Nuhash Palli, adding that they did not want to get the burial delayed anymore.

    Humayun married Gultekin in 1973. Humayun in 2005 married actress Shaon, who was also a friend of their daughter Sheela, after they got divorced in 2003.
