It is our Lajja

Jan 25, 2017 10:35 AMRead

Bengali novel “Lajja” written by Taslima Nasrin of Bangladesh. Meaning if the word ‘Lajja’ is ‘shame’. Nearly 50, 000 copies of the novel sold out by six months just after its  publication in 1993. Bangladesh Government imposed ban on this book as because the novel is strongly opposed the Islami...Read More

Whatever this book might be as a sociopolitical articulation, it makes a surprisingly poor novel. I fundamentally skimmed through it after 50 pages or something like that. Every one of the characters talked like daily papers. The story ought to have been sensational, particularly after Maya's sn...Read More

I was happy for the Preface in the release I read as it clarified the writer was venting her outrage, dissatisfaction and misery with regards to the Muslim responses in her nation to an occasion that happened in India.The book pivoted around authentic raw numbers and a tale around a Hindu fa...Read More

Books have been a source of knowledge for many centuries. There is atleast one book written on every single topic under the sun. Books are not only written to educate, they are written for leisure and even for the metamorphosis of the soul.There are a hundred categories to choose from when it comes to books.

"Lajja" was over hyped..bad

Nov 12, 2013 02:27 PMRead

Penned by Taslima Nasrin against the backdrop of Babri Masjid demolition, she portrayed a Hindu family being persecuted by Muslims. O yes, a book which led to the author’s exile from Bangladesh and a fatwa in her name, was the most controversial book in 1993. Originally Lojja(Shame) in Bengali w...Read More

Lajja is a very true account of life as it is for Hindus in Bangladesh. The author has peppered her account with countless factual pieces of evidence.This no flight of fancy - its sadly the reality for millions of Hindus in Bangladesh and Pakistan. There are newspaper reports, court reports ...Read More

~~~~Lajja - Shame is a colour, not religion~~~~

Jul 01, 2009 01:33 PMRead

After reading Taslima Nasrin’s Girlhood I thought the book Lajja must be a continuation to it, explaining the struggles of a younger girl.  This must have bought her the ‘fatwa’.   The preface immediately clarified my preoccupations and I am all set to turn pages.  ‘I detest fundamentalism and c...Read More

"Let another name for Religion be Humanism"are the wordsI found in the noveljust before the contents of the book and the book, according to me is dedicated to this thought only. What made me read this book is the fact that the fatwa has been raised against the writer by the Bangladeshi extremist...Read More

Oct 04, 2005 05:47 PMRead

Lajja,by Tasleema Nasreenqualifies as one of the worst written books I ever read. You always have to think twice when you finish a book in 7 days. Had the fatwa against Taslima Nasreen not issued, this book wouldn't have made it to the bookstands.Religion, communalism and rape fill these pag...Read More
