Lajja (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 265

Lajja, the controversial novel by Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasrin, is a savage indictment of religious extremism and man’s inhumanity to man.

The Duttas—Sudhamoy, Kironmoyee, and their two children, Suranjan and Maya—have lived in Bangladesh all their lives. Despite being part of the country’s small Hindu community, that is terrorized at every opportunity by Muslim fundamentalists, they refuse to leave their country, as most of their friends and relatives have done. Sudhamoy, an atheist, believes with a naive mix of optimism and idealism that his motherland will not let him down.... And then, on 6 December 1992, the Babri Masjid at Ayodhya in India is demolished by a mob of Hindu fundamentalists. The world condemns the incident, but its fallout is felt most acutely in Bangladesh, where Muslim mobs begin to seek out and attack the Hindus.... The nightmare inevitably arrives at the Duttas’ doorstep—and their world begins to fall apart....

Unremittingly dark and menacing, the novel exposes the mindless bloodthirstiness of fundamentalism and brilliantly captures the insanity of violence in our time.

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- An insight into the religious bigotries

Religious bigotries have shamed the human kind time and again .... We reached the moon almost half a century back but we are yet to accept and respect our fellow beings' beliefs.
