Read the text and answer the questions 1 and 2:
Hason Raja was born in 1854 in a wealthy landlord’s family in Sylhet. He did not receive much formal education. In his youth, he led a life of luxury. He did not lack of anything- money, comfort, pleasure. But then a time came when he started to find all these comfort and joy meaningless. He gave away his landed property, his money and wealth. He started to think deeply about the Creator, about life and death and mankind. Hason Raja wrote a lot of songs, some say about a thousand in number. His book called ‘Hason Udash’ was published in 1906. The book had 206 songs in it. In his songs Hason called himself ‘Crazy Hason Raja’ or the ‘Pagla Hason Raja’. A volume called ‘Hason Raja Samagra’ (Complete works of Hason Raja) was also published. The book contained 500 poems and songs. Some of the songs were written by the poet in Hindi. Hason Raja’s songs were always popular in Sylhet. But very soon they spread all over Bangladesh and beyond. In India’s West Bengal, some eminent folk singers made Hason’s songs popular.
