He wrote over 200 fiction and non-fiction books, all of which were bestsellers in Bangladesh.
In recognition to the works of Humayun, Times of India wrote Humayun was a custodian of the Bangladeshi literary culture whose contribution single-handedly shifted the capital of Bengali literature from Kolkata to Dhaka without any war or revolution. Ahmed’s writing style was characterized as magic realism . Sunil Ganguly described him as the most popular writer in the Bengali language for a century ] and according to him, Ahmed was even more popular than Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay. Ahmed’s books have been the top sellers at the Ekushey Book Fair during the 1990s and 2000s. [
Early life Humayun Ahmed was born in 13 November 1948 – 19 July 2012 Mohongonj, Netrokona, but his village home is Kutubpur, Mymensingh, Bangladesh (then East Pakistan). His father, Faizur Rahman Ahmed, a police officer and writer, was killed by Pakistani military during the liberation war of Bangladesh in 1971, and his mother is Ayesha Foyez. Humayun’s younger brother, Muhammed Zafar Iqbal, a university professor, is also a writer of mostly science fiction genre and a newspaper columnist.  Another brother, Ahsan Habib, is a painter and the editor of Unmad, a cartoon magazine.
Marriages and Personal Life In 1973, Humayun Ahmed married Gultekin, granddaughter of Principal Ibrahim Khan. They had three daughters — Nova, Sheela, Bipasha and one son — Nuhash. Humayun started to have an affair with Meher Afroz Shaon from middle of 1990s. Shaon is a TV actress and then friend of his second daughter.  Later, in 2003, Humayun divorced Gultekin and married Shaon in 2005. From the second marriage he had two sons — Nishad and Ninit. [ Education After graduating from the University of Dhaka, Humayun Ahmed joined the Department of Chemistry as a lecturer.
He obtained a PhD in Polymer Chemistry from North Dakota State University. He is a former Associate Professor of University of Dhaka and an honorary fellow in writing at the University of Iowa. Literature Humayun Ahmed had a meteoric rise in Bangla literature. His first novel Nondito Noroke (In blissful hell), written while he was still a student of Universityof Dhaka, gained immediate popularity and critical acclaim. Ahmed Sharif, a famous critic, predicted the beginning of a great literary career.
Equally successful was his second novel, Shankhanil Karagar (The ocean blue prison). Shankhanil Karagar was also made into a successful film by Nasiruddin Yusuf. Ahmed went on to become one of the most prolific writers in Bangla, publishing around a 100 novels to date. Along with his more traditional novels and short stories, Ahmed is often credited with creating or maturing many a literaray genre in Bangladesh. The coming of age of Bangla science fiction can almost solely be attributed to Ahmed and Muhammed Zafar Iqbal, his brother.
Ahmed also created the immensely popular Misir Ali and Himu characters, the first a rational psychologist committed to unravel the myteries around him, another a bohemian whose life goes back and forth between reality and myticism. Humayun Ahmed has said that these two characters, according to him sides of the same coin, are his favorite characters. His contribution to comic genre also deep. His televised drama Bohubrihi, was one of the most succeessful productions of the national tv, its characters still household names after twenty years.
The drama had a subtle combination of comic wit and a social message, as did his successful comic essay collectionsElebele. Ahmed later rewrote Bohubrihi as a novel. Though set in the realities of middle class life, Humayun Ahmed’s works displays a particular penchant for the mysterious and unexplained. He himself and his literature are often referred to as “moon-struck”, and truly the references to the full moon in his prose is numerous. Liberation war Another recurring theme in Ahmed’s literature is the liberation war, which personally affected him deeply. His father was executed by the Pakistan Army during the war.
He, along with his mother and siblings had to hide to survive. Humayun Ahmed has written a play named 1971, a novel named Aguner Parashmoni (The touch of fire) and a recent large novel named Jochhna o Jananir Galpo (Mother and moonlight) based on the Liberation War. His comic novel Bahubrihi ends with the character named Farid training parrots to say Tui Rajakar (you are a traitor), with the goal to send these parrots to Bangladeshi collaborators during the war. Television and film Humayun Ahmed has transformed himself as a prominent film and television personality.
His first tv drama, “Ei Shob Din Ratri” (Story of our lives), gained huge popularity in the mid eighties. He followed that with the comedy series “Bohubrihi”, the historical drama series “Ayomoy”, and the urban drama series “Kothao Keu Nei” (Nobody is here). The last one featured an idealistic gang leader named Baker Bhai, who eventually is wrongly convicted, and executed. Baker Bhai became such a popular character that before the last segment was aired, people across the country brought out processions protesting the death of the character. The uproar created can be compared to that of the death of Sherlock Holmes.
Public prayers and death anniversaries have been arranged for this fictional character. Ahmed explored the film industry both as the author of screenplays and director. He usually directs most of the films based on his stories. His first film, “Aguner Parashmoni” was based on the Bangladesh Liberation War. This theme comes often in his stories, as Ahmed has deep memories of the war, during which his father, a police officer, was executed by the Pakistan Army. Ahmed’s other films include “Srabon Megher Din”, “Shyamal Chhaya” and “Chandrakatha”. Criticism Humayun Ahmed has had his fair share of criticisms.
One of the most common one levelled at him is that the quality of his work has gone down after he gained popularity and he now writes for money and/or the request of his publishers. Some lament that he simply didn’t utilize his great talent, among them his brother Muhammed Zafar Iqbal, who once said “Humayun Ahmed has a great camera, but he only takes picture of birthday parties”, referring to his fantastic prose but allegedly trivial subject matters. Some also crticize his decision to resign as a Professor of University of Dhaka to become a full time writer/film director.
His family life and divorce from his first wife and subsequent marriage to a young actress caused a much-publicized scandal in 2004.

Education and early careerHumayun Ahmed went to many schools in Sylhet, Comilla, Chittagong, Dinajpur and Bogra as his father lived in many places upon official assignment. He passed the School Certificate Examination as a student of Bogra Zilla School in 1965. He stood second in the merit list in the Rajshahi Education Board.

He initially planned to study economics but suddenly changed his mind and got admitted into the Dhaka University to study Chemistry.
He passed both BSc (honors) and MSc with First Class. Subsequently he joined the Dhaka University as a Lecturer in the Department of Chemistry. Later he went abroad to the North Dakota State University in the United States to study for Ph. D. He returned to Bangladesh and resumed teaching at the Dhaka University. He retired as a teacher around mid 1990s to devote all his time to writing and production of film. • 9. Marriage 1973 with GultekinAhmed was married to Gultekin, granddaughter of Principal Ibrahim Khan, in 1973. Humayun has three daughters and one son with Gultekin.
Later he started an affair with a TV serial actress, Meher Afroz Shaon which lead to divorce of his marraige in 2003. He later married Meher Afroz Shaon in 2005.

However Humayuns first drama serial was Ei Shob Din Ratri (Tale of our daily lives), which achieved substantial popularity and it was followed by the comedy series Bohubrihi, the historical drama series Ayomoy, and the urban drama series Kothao Keu Nei (There is no one in anywhere). 11. Tagore, Nazrul and Humayun”In assessing Humayuns importance, Times of India reports, “one should take into account that had he not lived, his books and films would never have been created at all. For this reason, many people even contend that it is Humayun, rather than Tagore or Nazrul, who should really be considered as the greatest Bengali of all time. Carried to its logical conclusion, that argument would lead one to place Humayun higher than Tagore or Nazrul • 12. However, Humayun never compared himself to Shakespeare, and not even to Tagore and Nazrul. He did not regard himself as a great writer. In fact, I am sure that if anyone conducted a survey to list the five greatest writers of Bengali literature, Humayun would be third, if not first or second. Humaun wrote his greatest write of misir ali and himu. • 13. WorksFilms• Name of Film• Shonkhonil Karagar• Aguner proshmoni• Srabon megher din• Dui Duari• Chondrokotha• (Ghetuputra Kamola)• Noi no.
