Professor of Bangla and popular lyricist Mohammad Monirzzaman, died Wednesday of old age complications at the age of 73.

The former teacher of Dhaka University's Bangla department died on the way to the Bangladesh Medical College Hospital after falling ill at his Uttara Residence, younger brother Rafiquzzaman told
Moniruzzaman, who wrote many popular songs of the 60s—including "Amar desher matir gandhe bhore acche sara mon", "Tumi ki dekhecho kabhu jiboner parajoy" and "Halud bato mendi bato, bato fuler mou"—had been suffering from old age complications for some years.
Born in Jessore on Aug 15 in 1936, he joined Dhaka University as a lecturer in 1962.
His first namaz-e-janaza will be held Thursday at the central mosque of Dhaka University.
The body will then be taken for burial to his hometown Jessore, said family members.
