Lajja (Hardcover) Price: Rs. 120

Through a tale of fiction surrounding an Indian family in Bangladesh, this controversial novel, Lajja (Hindi), deftly captures the far-reaching repercussions of religious extremism posed on Indian families in Bangladesh. It takes harshly on the venomous communal dogma that is a threat not only to secularism, but also to the very existence of humanity.

Summary Of The Book

In a plot based on the 1992 demolition of the Babri Masjid in India, Taslima Nasrin weaves a heart-wrenching story where a Bengali Hindu family living in Bangladesh is forced to re-evaluate their patriotism in order to save their precious lives. As the Bangladeshi Islamic radicals wage their war against resident Hindus, Sudhamoy and his wife, Kiranmayee, feel strongly for their homeland of Bangladesh, despite the terrors they face.

Their progressive son Suranjan tries hard to maintain his hopeful faith in the theory of nationalism, while his scared sister Maya wants to safely hide in a Muslim friend's home. All hell breaks loose on this family when Maya goes missing and they realize there is no way of finding her in the riot filled town. Sudhamoy is in for a disheartening disappointment as a devastated Suranjan resorts to violent communal reactions.

Subsequent turns in the story chronicle the events that made for a nasty historical incident and opens readers to horrifying truths about the torture, abuse and rape that paralyzed innocent people. The author enters the psyche of each character, trying to mirror the feelings of fear, paranoia and vengeance of a minority ethnic group that gets brutally ostracized for no fault of its own.

Originally written by Taslima in Bengali, Lajja (Hindi) was first published in the year 1993 and soon attracted a host of protests from Bangladeshi activists for its stance on certain Islamic principles. This led to the Government of Bangladesh banning the novel. Taslima even faced threats to her life and had to eventually leave the country. Despite all these disputes, Lajja sold 50,000 copies in 6 months and received critical acclaim from other parts of the world.

Nerve chilling Novel

After reading this novel I was not be able to sleep for days. It is a very nerve cracking novel about the realities of those days in bangladesh. I loved it for the way story moves around a family which is torn down by riots at the same time giving a full picture of the realities surrounding them.
