I mean, can you shmae believe that? It’s only now that you see him rise up to the occasion, and lajaj what his role in the family demands. And then I heard a voice of a friend, saying that I should not read such “controversial” books.

Two of them wore caps, pajamas and Kurtas. Suranjan, their son, believes that nationalism will be stronger than communalism but is progressively disappointed. The data is not just parroted in the book; it comes as a dialogue from anxious Bengalis living pajja fear of their lives, and this is what adds life to these numbers; it makes you realise the enormity and graveness of the situation, and shxme with the victims.

Sudhamoy, the patriarchfeels that Bangladesh, his motherlandshall never let him down.

Belonging to a minority community Hinduthe Dutta family faces multitude of problems solely for the reason of being a Hindu. I salute the courage of Taslima for telling the truth in best way. Irrespective of how he might feel about his country, his motherland, his fellow countrymen and his service to both, nothing around him agrees with him anymore.

Lajja “Shame”

He also wonders that Why not united nation, Indian intellectuals took a hard action of Bangladesh for their torture on Hindus, except rarely visible comments and newspaper articles. All through the first part of the story, you have seen Suranjan visiting friends, squandering his time. If she cut out half of the facts, the book would have been 5 stars in my opinion. Sudhamoy’s idealism is frustrating and one feels like shaking him hard to wake him up into the reality.

The book undoubtedly is controversial but is also an important part of a history that needs to be revisited again, so that communal riots like these can be avoided.

Lajja: Shame

Suranjan, only son ,ajja Sudhamoy had grown up believing the same ideals and principals, his father had and taught. Of course, not all are extremists, but one is enough to wreak havoc. For Suranjan, however, Shamima was not a whore but a girl belonging to majority community. These books also tried to give a positive look to communist party of Bangladesh which I think failed utterly in India and Bangladesh.

Suranjan, mengaku seorang aktivis, anak dari dr. One rarely feels involved with d characters. The story is full of incidents, facts of what really happened in Bangladesh in form of conversation among characters. That the book was banned in large parts of our subcontinent goes to prove that we have thrown introspection out of the window.

Like Liked by 2 people. Driven away from their motherlands, and living ahame refugees in another country which they cannot call their own, the immigrants are probably the most affected people in any war. Sadly, I’m not one of them.
