A feminist writer denounces treatment of women as objects of lust, physical and psychological violence. Lajja means shame, is a response to anti-Hindu riots which erupted in parts of Bangladesh, soon after the demolition of Babri Masjid in India on 6 December Mesjid ini didirikan pada abad 16 oleh Mughal I Babur dengan menghancurkan bentuk asalnya yaitu sebuah kuil. Sebagai aktivis demokrasi dan anti komunal Suranjan merasa telah menabrak tembok tebal yg tak mungkin dapat dihancurkan oleh kedua tangannya.
The new translation by Anchita Ghatakan improvement on the previous one in its attempt to preserve the flavour of the original including the titleis competent, though not without lapses.
Their discussions and deliberations cause such a delay that Suronjon’s sister Maya, the sanest and rational voice in the story, is abducted from their home, right in front of her parents.
Nilanjana curses her brother’s apathy and coaxes his brother to take the family to a Muslim friend’s house for safety. The most striking feature of Lajja is Suronjon’s internal struggle of what he believes and what he is witnessing.
Lajja: Shame | Taslima Nasrin | Book Review
Riots are a distortion of humanism. As a story per se, it is about the riots that happen in Bangladesh as an aftermath of the Babri Masjid demolition and how a Hindu family pays a heavy price because its men happen to be too idealistic. It was two years then since the Babri Masjid had lanja demolished, but I hadn’t known of any connection between the demolition and the book. As a novel, it was a bit of a slog reading through because she was making the same points again and again and you get what she is trying to say pretty much in the intial 50 pages of the book itself.
This is the book which made the author a household name in India after she had to leave her country Bangladesh post this book started being talked about everywhere.
This is a One of the most serious reads I have read till date. Articles with short description Articles needing additional references from December All articles needing additional references Pages to import images to Wikidata Articles containing Bengali-language text. Kironmoyee was mostly in the background, but she had an important role to play. Taslim I am afraid has not really explored any ways of addressing this issue choosing instead to plainly list the atrocities resulted by the rise of fundamentalism.
He, like the hooligans, wanted to kill the Muslims and abduct their daughters for taking revenge. The above lines are from Sudhamoy’s soul, an affluent and respectable physician, who is now lying in bed, thinking that bu changed his homeland?
Pada tahunwilayah Pakistan Timur menuntut kemerdekaan dan negara sendiri, terpisah dari Pakistan yang Islam. Nasrin has written 40 books in Bengali, which includes poetry, essays, novels and autobiography series. Namun, ia tak lantas tinggal diam menyaksikan berbagai ketidakadilan dan kesewenang-wenangan yang dilakukan atas nama agama.
Book Review | Lajja – Livemint
This is a story of a Bengali family living in Bangladesh during the Babri Masjid demolition and consecutive riots. The helplessness of Hindu I tadlima this book in my late teenage. The plight of a Hindu family is presented against the backdrop of Islamic fundamentalism with occasional references to real instances of communal violence in Bangladesh.
In most of her writings, Nasrin gives evidences of her feminist leanings as she delineates situations pertaining to subjugation and marginalization of ,ajja by men who have patriarchal mindset. I read this book in my late teenage.

The fire of communal rioting erupts, and the Dutta family feels and faces the heat of the communal hatred. The crumbling of Maya’s character can be sensed from the very beginning of Lajja, but it comes so swiftly that it leaves you stunned.
Lists with This Book. Jangan langsung menarik diri, karena Islam di buku ini memang sangat kejam. Almost all Sufi poets talk about wine; and what do you think that ‘somras’ that Hindu dieties loved drinking so much was? I twslima the book cover to cover, hoping that there would be some redeeming factor, but what little story there lamja appeared to be merely an excuse to lo The true shame is found in the fact that this vitally important topic is lost in the pedantic, repetitive recitation of the horrors inflicted upon the Hindu Bangladeshi by Muslims — pages and pages and pages of the stuff.
Sejak itu, kedamaian tak ada lagi di sana, terutama bagi masyarakat Hindu sebagai kelompok minoritas. Sebelum membaca buku ini aku sudah baca beberapa reviewnya, jadi sudah dapat memperkirakan isinya, tapi tetap masih penasaran untuk membacanya. The pain suffered within your country but still loving it.
I read the book cover to cover, hoping that there would be some redeeming factor, but what little story there was appeared to be merely an excuse to loosely link pages and pages of wrongs.
