Subodh tui paliye ja: Rise of an icon

The Dhaka people are, by now, quite familiar with a graffiti character called Subodh since last February, as he can be seen in the various walls of the city with a sun inside a cage or himself behind the bars.

These graffiti of Subodh are often accompanied by some texts saying “Subodh, run; time is not on your side”, or “Subodh, run; humans have forgotten how to love”, or “Subodh, run; your luck has run out”, and also “Subodh is now in jail; a sense of guilt is ensconced in people’s hearts”.

Citizens seem to become more curious as Subodh started to appear not only on the walls of the city but also on the walls of social media platforms Facebook and Twitter. Even poems and songs are now being written depicting the graffiti character. Discussions about Subodh were published in different newspapers in the country and abroad. The mysterious artist behind the emergence of Subodh has started to be called 'Banksy of Bangladesh'.

Who is this Subodh? Why should he run away? Why he is in jail?
