  55. Two names should also be included in the Music Portion one is Smt. Alaka Das ( Renowned Classical music artist, active from 1965- present,) and her younger brother Manas Kumar Das ( leading Nazrul Sangeet singer at present time). How these names are excluded in the above list? Its totally unfortunate.

  56. A lot of days went since my request to include the name of Ustaad Surendra Narayan Das Sangeet Ratna and his younger brother Sree Sudhin Das and his wife Smt. Nilema Das in the MUSIC part.

  61. Now need to segregate them as per present district. It is important and urgent.
    Better to include all the sectors for inspiring future generations.

  62. knowledge side to know about comilla prominent person

  63. A lot of names are mission in Music Section. A renowned Das family from Talpukur Par (Comilla), who had and have a lot of contribution in music arena at past as well as as present. I have observed some names in comment portion but not included in the article. Here are the list:

    3. Smt. Nilema Das;

    6. Tapas Kumar Das.

    All the above names that, I have mentioned are/ were well established in the music arena (Classical Music, Nazrul Sangeet, Modern songs) of Bangladesh. I am worried, whether the authority is reluctant to review the comments made or whether they are ignoring the comment simultaneously.

  64. Eminent professor Mobasser ali, who was born in Bagichagaon in comilla and dance director G.A.Mannan’s names were in the list. You alos forgot to inclue name of celebrated music director Shaikh sadi khan’s name, who recently received national prize.
