    An as it is account

    Quite often literature falls into the niceties that has to be met with for some people but in here the author recounts her life as it is. She believes that she cannot be held to as a hostage for being nice and covering truth laced with nice words.

    This memoir is a political one as much as her fight to take them on, she minces no words and showcases the nexus of the political parties and the fundamentalists in a way that we dont think about. Her narrative is laced with anger and furore for s...

    Good

    Exile was a surreal experience.It is a memoir about a phase in Taslima Nasreen’s life when her right to freedom of speech was taken away from her and political games were employed in the controversy which led her to be banned in Bangladesh and West Bengal .This book is high on emotion and a woman’ s struggles in a man’s world. We live a life in much comfort but what happens when you are forced to live in four walls for years under house arrest.Such is tbe story of Taslima’s life and shows wha...

    To know the value of freedom..

    Since this is my first book from author Taslima Nasrin, I had to first read a lot about what happened in her life to understand her perspective. Once the initial preparation was complete, I had found myself in love with her writing style. It mixes the objects that can be seen with the emotions that cannot be seen.

    Writing about one’s own life requires a lot of courage to speak of the things that are in the personal dungeon within the mind. However, Taslima has spoken with the words that stay...

    Exile - A Memoir

    Whether one considers Taslima Nasrima a literary icon or not, one cannot deny that her life has been nothing short of phenomenal. She never shied away from speaking her mind or expressing her opinions on religion or society. She hasn’t visited her country for the last 22 years now and has been leading a vagabond existence with the label of anti Islamic. ‘Exile’ is the moving and shocking account of all that happened during her stay in India – Kolkata, Hyderabad. It is filled with nostalgia an...

    Banished from Bengal, Wronged by a State

    The book is a powerful account of an individual, a writer, a female, who has been let down by the powers that be. The book is a commentary on how vote bank politics trumps basic human rights. The book is a testimony to the humongous and nearly unlimited State power. The book is a note of how personal relations, friendships, acquaintances fail to stand up in times of adversity. Taslima Nasrin’s Exile is a book that through its diary entries, poems, newspaper testimonials makes all the above po...
