Product Specification Product Description This novel written by taslami nasreen, a citizen of bangladesh reveals the staunch religion and the inhuman treatment by one man to another. Dutt family is the citizen of bangladesh. It includes sudhamay babu, kiranmayee, and their two children suranjan and maya. In bangladesh all the hindus undergo severe torture from the majority, but this hindu family stands firmly against it and prefers not to leave their motherland. Sudhamay babu is an atheist, but a personality full of patriotism, hopes and ideals. He relies on the feeling that his motherland will never ditch him.
Comparisons are indeed odious, especially when rendered opposite one of the world's great leading ladies, but in the gracious presence of this reigning screen legend the others fade in her shadow. She erupts, leaving the wedding procession in shambles.
Seeing her father devastated, she begins to weep, blaming herself for the chaotic destruction in front of her. She bemoans, "Why did I say anything?
I have ruined everything! It is all my fault! There is no reason for you to be crying.
You are not at fault for anything. The fault is mine. The fault is of every woman who came before you, because if we had had the courage to say in our day what you have said today, there would have been no need for you to say anything today. The other, more subtle moment comes very early in the film when Vaidehi Manisha has fled from her abusive husband to the refuge of her parents' home in India.
To viewers of western societies, it may seem perfectly reasonable indeed, natural that any abused woman would seek the protective guardianship of her parents; this, however, is a societal taboo in many eastern cultures, India among them. Once a woman has been married, the identity she assumes is that of her husband and his personal assets family, business, children, etc.
Obviously it was Hindus in India and not Bangladesh who were guilty of destroying mosque, but it has always been a tendency of weak minds to carry out their anger not on those who they are angry at, but on those on whom they can afford to be angry at. There are countless examples - instead of questioning powerful business-people and politicians for not raising wages and jobs, people would rather blame minorities, immigrants and reservation quotas; instead of being angry at police for not providing protection, people will rather blame the women who got raped for being out in the middle of night etc.
And so, Bangladeshi Hindus had to suffer - destruction of temples, riots, murders, rapes, forced conversations, black-mail about leaving the country etc. Nasrin's characters realize that powerful will always oppress the weak — the men will oppress the women, the majority religion people will oppress the minorities, the rich will oppress the poor and so on. The book sometimes reads like fictionalized non-fiction with arguments and information being the key subject of book and story only getting the second seat.
Almost half the book goes to listing every incidence of riot that ever occurred in Bangladesh — naming city and number of people killed, women raped and temples destroyed there. She also lists at least some incidences of India. These longs lists although effective initially in giving the sheer volume of violence, soon gets a bit boring and even skim-able.
Another problem is that this incidences are being mentally listed by characters in their mind and orally recited to each-other, as if they have crammed all this information like news channels reporters do.
But that is the problem, the information is not even being broadcast-ed on television — they just seems to know about incidences occurring in distant cities by intuition. It is a minor thing but it keeps occurring again and again. Similarly Surnajan seems to remember sayings of Jinnah and Kalam okay as well as the constitution along with the many amendments that have gone in it not okay.
It would have made more sense if the omniscient narrator herself had shared the information and arguments directly instead of giving her characters hard-disk memories. The views expressed in comments published on newindianexpress.
