It’s been a year since ‘Rock King’ of band music or guitar-magician Ayub Bachchu left the world. His first death anniversary is observed on Friday. 

And today is Tahsan Khan’s birthday. But like others, he is not celebrating his birthday this year too. “On this day, Ayub Bachchu left us, I didn’t celebrate the birthday last year and is not celebrating this year also,” he said.  

As the year was different, Tahsan Khan was born on the same day. Last year, when all the preparations were made for celebrating the birthday, he heard the news of Ayub Bachchan’s death, his happy day turned into a shadow gloom and rushed the hospital to see the guitar legend for one last time.

He did not celebrate the day. Tahsan wrote a poem on his birthday last year. It has not been released yet. But on Thursday, after a year, he recited the unpublished poem himself.

Earlier in a Facebook live video, Tahsan said, “On October 17, I wrote a post for my fans where I wrote I wanted a gift from the fans. But what I want, I will tell that by a poem. But the next day, brother Bacchu left us. Then I no longer had the mentality to post the poem. Today the poem came out again so I read it to everyone.”

Recalling Ayub Bachchu, Tahsan said, “When I first went to the United States in 2006 to receive an award, Bacchu Bhai was with me. I wanted to buy a guitar from there. Bacchu Bhai chose the guitar for me. The guitar is still there. Whenever I look at the guitar I remember Bacchu Bhai. My prayer to this day that wherever Bacchu Bhai is, stay well.” 

Tahsan said he would spend the day with his daughter Aira Tahrim Khan and his parents. Tahasan’s full name is Tahsan Rahman Khan. He is one of the most popular musicians, composers and music directors, presenters and performers. But a teacher in the profession.

His ancestral residence was Bikrampur in Munshiganj. Tahsan was studied at Ag Church School and St Joseph’s High School. He passed HSC from Notre Dame College in 1998 and obtained a Bachelor’s (Marketing) and Master’s (Finance) Degree in Business Administration from Dhaka University’s Business Administration Institute.

The popular songs of Tahsan is too long. Some of the notable songs are — ‘Protigga’, ‘Rodela DUpur’, ‘Roder Achor’, ‘Kalponik Prem’, ‘Ogochore’, ‘Megher Pore’, ‘Prothom Prem’, ‘Keno Hotath Ele’, ‘Tumi Chuye Dile Mon’, ‘Prothom Bhalobeshe’ etc.  

He is also popular for acting. His plays include ‘Monforing er Golpo’, ‘Neel Pori Neelanjona’, ‘Sporsher Baire Tumi’, ‘Chinigura Prem’, ‘Hotath Tomar Jonno’, ‘Anamika’, ‘Mr and Mrs’ etc.
