Lajja (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 236

This is a story about the Duttas, a Bengali family living in Bangladesh and their struggles during the communal riots in 1992, which started when the Babri Masjid in Ayodhya was demolished by a mob of Hindu fanatics.

Summary Of The Book

The Dutta family consists of four members, the father of the household, Sudhamoy, his wife Kironmoyee, and their children Suranjan and Maya. Being a Hindu family in a country that is terrorized by Muslim fundamentalists as often as possible, the book talks about their struggle in Bangladesh and their refusal to relocate even when their very lives are at stake. The environment in Bangladesh during the community riots is vividly depicted through the reactions of these four protagonists to the attacks, their experiences, trials and problems, making Lajja the compelling story it is.

Published in 1993, this book attracted wide attention due to its highly controversial subject matter. The primary theme of the book is religion and its ability to create rifts between communities with ease. The Babri Masjid was destroyed by Hindus due to a false sense of righteousness. Once, a temple of Lord Rama stood there, which was annihilated to build the mosque. The ignorant Hindus who destroyed a place of worship unknowingly started a new wave of hatred between the Hindu-Muslim communities, a wave so strong that its fallout was experienced in Bangladesh, where innocent Hindus were attacked and killed and raped, or were forced to switch to Islam purely because of the religion they chose to follow.

Lajja boldly addresses the issues which any minority religion in a country has to face. Dark and twisted, it explores the grim underbelly of our history, and religions. The book has been translated into Hindi, Marathi, Italian, English, Spanish, Kannada, French and other languages.

not what i thought it was

the events are not properly portrayed, some places are filled filed with extra detail and some lack it.
it's like being a synopsis of all newspaper of those times

Good One

Horrific yet heart touching account of the Bangladesh riots. Accurately captures the mindset of a helpless riot victim. However the repeated mention of news reports of riots across Bangladesh bores the readers sometimes.

A novel that just speaks truth and nothing else..

Finally i have found a novel that makes total sense in the face of reality. This book is no fun to read.. I warn you!! It makes u think, it makes u cry, it makes your blood boil at times. Well it also made me look through Indian political history and also of Bangladesh in order to properly understand what Ms. Nasrin is talking about.
A wonderful wonderful book indeed. No romance, No fun , No entertainment but it just strikes right on your face and says "Suck it".
I have become a fan of Ms. Taslima nasrin now and am gonna go for all the books written by her for sure, Even if i have to learn Ben

It's really a shame.

After reading this whole novel i came to know that if u r minor in a society it means u may risk Ur life no matter how close u were with the majority people but at last they will show up their true color of their blood..If something happened in India it doesn't mean Hindus of Bangladesh will have to pay for it...
After reading this novel I'm a huge fan of Taslima Nasrin and salute her for brevity to write against her own religion and her country..It is literally a shame that serving for those many years by sudhamoy at last what he got in turn was loss of her only daughter maya,the girl in her

Lajja (Shame) Review

Good book. Easy and Simple language. The book is a mirror that shows how minorities are treated as second grade citizens in their own country.
