A group taalima seven hooligans entered the house of Sudhamoy who had recently suffered paralysis, and began to break the goods of the house. To put these taspima in a book demands a lot of courage. At every bend, Sudhamoy and his family suffer humiliation as a result of anti-minority policies crafted by the lawmakers, but Sudhamoy never once thinks about leaving his land.

His son Suronjon is more vulnerable to the circumstances. Your heart goes out to him.

The data is not just parroted in the book; it comes as a dialogue from anxious Bengalis living in fear of their lives, and this is what adds life to these numbers; it makes you realise the enormity and graveness of the situation, and sympathise with the victims.

The story itself was pretty ordinary with lame dialogue and a lot of repetition.

At one point in time, even Taslima Nasrin was proud of her beautiful country Bangladesh and felt privileged on account of its rich heritage and culture. Namun aku pikir, buku ini penting di baca terutama, orang-orang yang fanatik, agar bisa memahami akibat tsslima fanatisme buta.

Lajja: Shame | Taslima Nasrin | Book Review

This book has a picture of woman on both sides which sometimes misguides that this book is about the women in Bangladesh, but its not.

One must read it to understand the present and past of Indian subcontinent. As a result of it, they decide to leave for India. However, Sudhamoy stubbornly, desperately, and naively holds on to his faith in the inherent goodness of fellow human beings, even at a time when his allies are turning against his family.
