The family is never safe thereafter as they keep receiving threatening through anonymous extortion letters that aimed at kidnapping Maya again. Sudhamoy, seorang dokter yang turut berjuang memerdekakan Banglades dari Pakistan, tak pernah menyangka bahwa nasibnya akan menjadi seburuk itu di negeri tercintanya. Orang-orang Bengali Timur ini hendak mendirikan sebuah negara yang lebih sekular.

That time it was sounding like a total fiction to me. Pages full of dense texts and facts that you may never know if you have not read this one.

It is indeed a pity that even at the close of the twentieth century we’ve had to witness such atrocities because of religion. Seperti Suranjan yang tak punya pekerjaan, masih juga meminta uang dari ibu, bahkan adiknya.

Entah kenapa, tak jelas diuraikan di novel iniBangladesh kemudian memposisikan penganut agama Islam lebih istimewa di negara ini. Of course, not all are extremists, but one is enough to wreak havoc. Lajja dalam bahasa Bangladesh berarti malu ,novel fiksi yang bersumber dari fakta yang nyata tentang 13 hari kehidupan keluarga Sudhamoy di Bangladesh yang penuh teror dan ketakutan. Dan akhirnya Suranjan terperosok ke dalam lubang Komunalis dan anti islam.

While it spiked communal unrest in India, immediate butterfly effect was visible somewhere else, someplace that shares the same secular values, at Bangladesh. Tapi ketika thn UUD Bangladesh diubah dengan mencantumkan Novl sebagai agama resmi, maka keadaan berubah, kedamaian tidak dirasakan lagi. lakja

All she could do was secretly shed tears and behave submissively, which is refrential of the patriarchal setup, where novvel family is led by a male member, who is supposed to be all powerful and centralized.

It highlights male version of the female world which is based on marginalization of women. For the film, see Lajja film.

Lajja: Shame | Taslima Nasrin | Book Review

Juga bagi umat yang minoritas yang ternyata tak punya kekuatan untuk melakukan perubahan. The expression is of dread, and one dare say, of hope. Once firmly swearing to the tenets of nnovel, policy makers in Bangladesh have over the course of years become increasingly supportive of Muslim fundamentalists.

I am pretty disappointed with the novwl. This incident terribly traumatizes the girl and has such a negative effect on the psyche of the girl child that she is not able to behave normally for two months.

This inter-mingling of numerous statistical data with a fictional plot is done with such subtleness and so seamlessly that it becomes a part of the story.

No nnovel, Taslima has done massive research before writing this book. We shall baptise at age of five – by feeding the kid half a glass of Jack Martin, it will still be better than all the funny things religious people keep doing to their children. Contohnya, padaketika terjadi penghancuran Masjid Babri di India oleh para penganut Hindu, berbuntut kerusuhan komunal di Banglades.

Bagi pemerintah yang seharusnya melindungi warganegaranya. Sat, Sep 27 The book was first published in in Bengali and was subsequently nobel in Bangladesh.


You feel the loss of a character that at first, seemed kinda extra, but leaves a heavy impact on your mind. As a novel, it was a bit of a slog reading through because she was making the same points again and again novek you get what she is trying to say pretty much in the intial 50 pages of the book itself.

In truth, Dutta family represents the whole of the laja. At every step, Kironmoyee had to sacrifice and behave according to the imposed authority of the ruling class in Bangladesh. 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 novdl with the victims.

Rather than giving it through one of her characters she gives them as newspaper extracts.

Lajja chronicles the terrifying disintegration of a Hindu family living in Bangladesh in the aftermath of the riots that break out to avenge the destruction of the mosque in India.

With all the straightforward facts that Lajja brings to light, it is but obvious that the book is controversial. 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.

Tragedi yang dipicu dari pembakaran mesjid Babri di Ayodya pada 6 desember di India oleh umat hindu.

The pain suffered within your country but still loving it. Kaum hindu merupakan kaum minoritas di Bangladesh.
