Sensitive in nature from his very childhood, Tawsif Anam always found himself touched by the feelings of love and affection that he received from his family, and was also bound by the feeling of security. But when he was still very small, the death of his eldest uncle from his paternal side, who was a very distinguished and well-known member of the society, disturbed him greatly. It was difficult for him to grasp the issue of death and express his sorrow at his tender age.
Under the shades of his respected and beloved senior members of the family, he continued to feel himself secured, up to a certain point in his young life. Before and during his transition to adolescence, the losses of two very special people in his life, his maternal grandfather and eldest aunt, introduced in his life the feeling of contemplation. The recognition of death as a medium of enormous change brought devastation to Tawsif Anam’s mind, making way for him to slowly descend himself into thinking of what is beyond the material and the corporeal. The years of his adolescence were greatly affected by various changes that took place in his life, including frequent changes of residence, including migrating from Bangladesh to USA.
Over the years of his young life, Tawsif Anam grew up to have a strong disposition towards suddenness, switching from one field of study to another, making frequent changes of his hobbies, and also his belief systems.
Through the stormy transitions, Tawsif Anam finally made his presence in the world of poetry, something that enabled him to express what he long viewed as inexpressible. Currently an undergraduate student at University of Wisconsin Madison, he wants to continue expressing himself through poetry, with strong encouragement from his parents.
