Entertainment Report :
Today is the 11th death anniversary of baul legend Shah Abdul Karim. Due to coronavirus pandemic, there is no special programme to mark the day.
He was awarded the Ekushey Award in 2001 for his outstanding musical achievements. Before his death, Shah Abdul Karim was honoured with the title of Baul Samrat.  He died of respiratory problems in Sylhet on September 12 in 2009.
Born on February 15 in 1916 at Ujan Dhol village in Derai Upazila of Sunamganj, Abdul Karim led a very simple life. He was raised in a musical family. Growing up in poverty and facing hardship, he did not attend school and started expressing his thoughts and emotions musically from a very early age. As he was growing up, he received training on spiritual and Baul music from Shah Ibrahim Mastan Baksh, who was from Sreepur Peer Mohol.
