Dan nurani kita terluka. It is the worst as the author nawrin says in the book: They cannot observe any religious rituals of their own and cannot practice anything signifying their religion.

Let the rice fields with golden grain bathed by the early rays of sun, the open field and rivers and the deep sea be our new places of prayer. It highlights male version of the female world which is based on marginalization of women. They want to kill me, they demand my death only for the reason that I am alone, I am afraid, so I must be afraid of them and stop nsarin writing.

Lajja: Shame | Taslima Nasrin | Book Review

Aug 26, Ranjitha rated it it was amazing. Riots between Hindus and Muslims had broken out in India. Let humanity be the other name for religion. A riot is not an act vy nature nor is it an accident. When you read it, Sudhamoy’s optimism about Bangladesh is infuriating.


Lajja tells the story of a Hindu family, torn between their love towards lush green motherland they and their ancestors fought Independence for, and the choice of escape to India for the safety of their lives. Feb 21, Aishu Rehman rated it liked it. Or will they become prey to the communal elements?

Two books with two authors 1 14 Nov 09, The spread of this fundamentalist-driven mayhem across international boundaries proves that religious fanaticism presides nationalism.

Pain of parents and Suranjan has been described in a picture perfect way. There were no vivid descriptions of the trouble that the missing member of the family undergoes, yet the innumerable probabilities haunt you.

Author claims to have written this novel over a week of religious unrest, which escalated into demolition of century old temples and nsarin against minority Hindus, in retaliation to what happenings in India. And after reading Lajja, I think she was right, it does messes up with your mind but in a positive manner.

He eventually came up with a remedy as he thought something else.
