Song on autism ‘Autism to Kichu Noy’ released

‘World Autism Awareness Day’, an internationally recognised day, is observed on April 2 (today) to encourage the Member States of the United Nations to take measures to raise awareness about people with Autism Spectrum Disorder throughout the world. Like many other countries, Bangladesh also observes the day every year.

However, is it very unfortunate that a vast number of people still have wrong idea about autism, which led to worsen the condition of the children with autism.

To raise awareness about autism among the people, eminent poet, lyricist and composer Mahbubul A Khalid penned a song titled ‘Autism to Kichu Noy’ (Autism is not a disease). The song has been released on Khalid’s website, www.khalidsangeet.com. Besides, a music video is also available on the lyricist’s YouTube channel ‘Khalid Sangeet’.

Celebrated singer Samina Chowdhury has lent her vocal to the song which was tuned by late noted musician Ahmed Imtiaz Bulbul.

About the song, lyricist Mahbubul A Khalid said, “Autistic children are not mentally ill as it is not a disease. They can lead a normal life if get proper care. They need a little more attention. It is not right to confine autistic children inside the house. They need to be sent to school like other normal kids. These children can win the world if they get the necessary support from their dearest ones.”
