In the first half of modern Bengali literature, there were three great Muslim literati – Kaikobad, Mir Musharraf Hossain and Mozammel Haque. Kaikobad got a long life which he utilized in the cultivation of literature. The whole literary life of Kaikobad can be divided into three phases. In the first phase, he concentrated on lyric, in the second phase on epic and in the third phase on multifarious poems – short poems, narrative poems, short epics and lyrics. The article is an attempt to highlight the role of Kaikobad who sacrificed his whole life in awakening his communities from the deep slumber of ignorance by his poetic talent.
