Prominent poet Al Mahmud has been admitted to a hospital in Dhaka due to various old-age complications.

He was admitted to Ibn Sina Hospital in Dhanmondi area on Saturday night.

Mir Abdus Shukur Al Mahmud, best known as Al Mahmud, is a Bangladeshi poet, novelist and short-story writer.

He is considered one of the greatest Bangali poets to have emerged in the 20th century. His work in Bangla poetry is dominated by his frequent use of regional dialects.

In the 1950s he was among those Bangali poets who were outspoken in their writing on such subjects as the events of the Bangla Language Movement, nationalism, political and economic repression, and the struggle against the West Pakistani government.

He was born in Morail village of Brahmanbaria district in Bangladesh. His childhood and secondary education days were spent in this village, which is located adjacent to Brahmanbaria town.

Al Mahmud started his career as a journalist and obtained widespread recognition after “Lok Lokantor” was published in 1963.

Al Mahmud has been honoured with the Ekushey Padak, the Bangla Academy Award, and the Kabi Jasim Uddin Award in recognition of his contribution to Bangla literature.
