Bangladesh has been the pilgrimage of the author. He takes a holy dip in the river of his ancestors, felt their breathing, and heard the fiery battle cry of his Muktijoddha brothers.
The author’s heart goes out to Mijanur Rahaman, Prof. Sujit Chakrabarty and his cousin brother Sushovan—all are liberation warriors.
The book speaks volumes about the powerful fangs of evil-personal and political.
The all-pervasive Pak atrocities rule supreme. The fateful day of 1952 intrudes. The year 1971 revisited with all its shocking, shattering and searing incidences. Untold stories of Baradakanta and others emerge out with all its horrendous crimes and barbarities. Devastating, heartbreaking and deeply moving.
Far from being a mere travelogue, it has an unforgettable narrative that unites past and present.
The gruesome genocide during Bangladesh liberation war can never be forgotten, as no temporal justice can heal the wounds of millions of innocent souls.
It’s Monalisa Goswami, a vibrant Dhaka University student, who landed the author onto a plane of awakening. Her untimely death left a deafening silence in his life.
A must-read for those who wish that such barbarities and brutalities do not happen again on earth, and for all those who are eager to see Bangladesh—the land of reliance, patience and never say die, through the prism of its pristine glory and treasury.
