But she did not mention all the writers of the country. She only mentioned the ones she was aquatinted with. Moreover, I believe she did not dishonor anyone, not even Mr. She actually disappointed the fundamentalists which Mr.
Huq, Dr. Azad and Mr. Gangopadhay ignored, though, I know, all three of them are fighting against fundamentalism.
While all of this is happening I could see the Muslim fundamentalists of Bangladesh who once offered 50, taka for her head and the Hindu fundamentalists of India, who used one of her books, Lajja Shame during the election campaign, are the ones being happy.
In her book, Ka, Taslima Nasrin showed how a freedom-seeking-woman, even educated like her, would struggle in every step of her life. Not only her own, she also mapped out the sufferings of all the women as a whole, and dug her pen into the root of problems. As a physician in Bangladesh, she experienced how the poor women of the villages were brought to the hospital for ligation for only a sari and a taka less than 2 dollars , even though many of them did not want to do it at the young age.
Since women have no say in any part of their lives, they do whatever the men want.
I immediately noticed that she was exploring the horrible lives of many women of the country. She did not forget to criticize the religion for the fact that it gave women a very marginal role in the society. Moreover, women are widely discouraged to go to school.
It is widely understood that they are born to cook and bear children. Also, a man can marry up to four women, but a woman does not even have the right to choose her own husband. The family would decide her marital fate. While this was the case, Ms. People wanted to stop her voice.
Many tabloids started making stories about her private life. She married three times and got divorced because, as she wrote in the book, those men wanted to control her. She wanted to do things on her own, but none of them allowed her to do so. She says even her father, who was also a physician, did not like her doing things on her own. After she got divorced from her first husband, a poet and an addict, she married the editor of the weekly Khoborer Kagoj.
But soon after their wedding, the editor did not show much interest in publishing her work. He started giving her advice on what to write and what not to write. He even started to control her movement, which Taslima did not like. So one day she went to the court and ended her second marriage. She asked her publisher to look for an apartment.
But no homeowner wanted to rent out the apartments to a single woman, as women must live with men. Finally she got an apartment promising that she would stay with her mother. She was working in a hospital nearby. Her father lived in her city of birth, Maymonshingh. One evening while her mother was away in Maymonshingh, her father came to her apartment with her older brother.
She was surprised on their surprising visit. They surprised her even more; they neither ate diner nor went to sleep. They spent the whole night sitting in chairs. She did not know what was the matter with them. In the morning when she was about to go to work, her father stopped her and said, "You have to go with us.
I have to go to work. She was stunned on the situation. While she managed to stand up, she got another push and a kick in the back.
She fell on the refrigerator and cut her lips. Her brother, who was standing by, threw a tabloid on her face.
This is what you do here! This was a fundamentalist paper. Since she was criticizing them, they finally wanted to illuminate her private life to the public with exaggerations. Her father read it and got upset. It obviously hurt his prestige too. So he immediately came to rescue it. She was forced to go the Maymonshingh and was locked in a room, where she was given food and a portable commode to respond to the natural call.
One morning while her mother brought breakfast in, there was a sudden noise in the kitchen. She ran back to the kitchen, thinking of something bad done by the housemaid. Since she was rushing she forgot to lock the room.
So, Taslima got a chance. She ran, ran and ran out of the house. She took a detour to get to the Dhaka City, so that when her father would know that she fled, he would not be able to catch her. The local bus took almost 10 hours to get to Dhaka instead of usual 4 hours.
At 11 in the night, standing in the bus station, she did not know what to do and where to go. Her father gave up the apartment she rented, and her furniture was taken to Maymonshingh. So, she even did not have a place to sleep. Luckily she remembered the phone number of a friend, who was also the editor of a weekly magazine.
She told her situation and asked if she could stay with his family for the night. The guy gave her a ride home and a bed in their living room to sleep, where she stayed a couple of days. She got her job back and married the guy. She did not actually wanted to marry the man, as she mentioned, but she had no where to stay and the editor said if she had to stay in his house she had to marry him.
He mentioned that he was under pressure from the family. Once she got married she started to know the editor a little better.
