amra-hetechi-jara-imtiar-shamim-pdf Book Review:
Many writers have written many stories and novels about the liberation war of Bangladesh, but the number of those who have started writing about Bangladesh after the liberation war is not so noticeable. In this case, Imtiaz Shamim has shown a lot of courage.
In the book ‘Those Who Walked Me’, he gave a metaphorical description of the political situation of the country during the three decades after the creation of independent Bangladesh.
In 1971, there was only Pakistani army. But after their departure, how many more forces including olive force, guard force, night force, red force, ragkata force, eagle force came up in the country. Some have abused their power for political gain and some for religion, and have oppressed the common man.
Fifty years after independence, the situation in the country has not changed a bit, but is getting worse day by day. The forces of those different names have remained the same today, only the costumes have changed, now they are wearing tight masks instead of thin clothes.
The main character of the novel, Tathagata Baba, was a freedom fighter. The father disappeared one day or two in the year of independence. But before leaving, he sowed the seeds of his own ideology in Tathagata.
After the father left, the night forces and the guards took turns harassing them. Among all these, Tathagata was spending his days following his father’s example and step-sister Manisha.
Then one day the army came to rule the country. After a while, the father also came back, with their good days. Rice is cooked in their house on that day, stories are told after eating, there is joy. But that joy did not last long. One autumn afternoon, olive soldiers came to their house and took my father away. This time the father came back but this time he brought his own death certificate with him.
After that it was a long time in the clouds, once he crossed the Tathagata school and reached the college, he left his village house and field and went to the college hostel. Manisha’s place in his urban life was handed over to Maria and Mamun.
The country was ruled by a new army. At one time Manisha also lost her life, then Mamun too.
Well, do loved ones get lost like this?
Dad, Manisha, Mamun …
Then whose turn?
Even at this time last year, I did not know much about Imtiaz Shamim’s writings, I never even heard his name. I first heard the name of Imtiaz Shamim in the novel ‘Amader Chithiyug Kuu Jhik Jhik’. A few days ago, I saw that Imtiaz Shamim has won the ‘Bangla Academy Award 2020’ for this year’s fiction. After that, after seeing some discussions about him, I became interested in reading his book. As a result read this book. Earlier, the book ‘Our letter era kuuu jhikjhik’ has been read. In both the books, he has explained the scenario in both the places of the country during the army rule.
However, ‘those who walked’ wrote a lot openly in this book. He has tied the three decades after the liberation war in a book of only one and a half pages.
In the novel ‘We Walked Who’, the author has pointed out the current situation of our country through the children of middle class families and forced us to think anew. Did we really want such a Bangladesh?
As far as I know, the book ‘We Walked Those’ was first published in 2000, the second edition of the book was published 20 years later. Many thanks to Pendulum Publishing for bringing the book to the readers anew.
The book is also a complete political document of post-war Bangladesh. The author has actually reconstructed his time in the manifestation of the perverted exhilaration and endangered existence of the decaying, individual, reactionary capitalism. Those who are looking for a good book should definitely read this book.
