bishadita-muhammad-asadullah book review:
‘bishadita’ is the third novel by the author Muhammad Asadullah. In a devotional letter, the author introduces the deeply sad disciple Robi to the reader in a heartfelt manner. The introduction reads, ‘Sadness is the story of a town where the dream of living is a luxury. You have to pay the price for laughter, tears, survival and love! ‘ The author invites and welcomes the reader to tour the life stories of some of the characters in Bengali villages (North Bengal, Dhaka) in a dark time, in terrible conditions.
‘bishadita’ is a concise account of a story written about the social and personal impact of a political movement (Naxal movement) between 2005-2006. The ‘Naxal movement’ of the peasants of West Bengal changed its outline with the passage of time. The purpose of the Naxalite forces changed somewhere in East Bengal and Bangladesh. The activities and thoughts of the extremists in Bangladesh against the backdrop of the Naxal movement have been described in the author’s view. Divided into twenty-seven chapters, the author collects the essence of the experiences of various books, magazines and eyewitnesses and gives it a literary form in his Munsiana.
In the beginning, Naxals had a positive effect in this country, but gradually it started to have a negative impact. Leaving party motives, personal interests became bigger. In the political, social, psychological novel, the author’s neutral but friendly realistic presentation of the character has emerged from the author’s omniscient point of view. The desire to grow in the identity of a dead father from childhood is stunned to see his father’s body in front of his eyes. After learning the truth from Razia Rani, she feels that her mother has ‘lost her father’s love with ego’. In terms of ‘will’:
“Truth is beautiful. But not all beauties are pleasant. Some seas live in the sea of melancholy. For example, today’s truth has turned desire into a torn sail of melancholy.” (Sadness / 133)
This ‘desire’ shook the heart of Idris, who had become an extremist from a madrasa student and a mosque imam; In the twinkling of an eye, Latif Sir, a woman-loving teacher, has a ‘mysterious character’. Even if the will is accidentally released from his hands, the calculation of how many girls have to lose respect for inhumans like Latif Sir is not always revealed!
Idris’s psychology and insanity are expressed in a well-arranged short sentence by the author. Idris’s thoughts from the author’s point of view:
“Thoughts are scattered like hot water bubbles. They keep growing. They keep running. They keep bursting. They start melting in the air. The Naxalite leader is injured when he moves away from the girl’s thoughts. Bad and real thoughts are again aimed at the weapon. There are echoes in the mast of the mind. ” (Sadness / 63)
In the fourth chapter, the author portrays the movements of extremists in North Bengal through the character of SI Masud. In 1999, the Awami League government tried to suppress the extremists. A general pardon was declared for them. About seven hundred and fifty extremists surrendered with weapons. Ordinary people became helpless due to the oppression of the extremists, the proletariat and the forces. SI Masud, the partner responsible for their suppression, became frustrated and started lobbying for transfer from Satbaria police station.
The author has subtly described the life and nature of different villages and rural public life in North Bengal. ‘Harishwar is a village 14 km away from the district headquarters’. The main occupation of the people of this village is agriculture and weaving. A handful of employees, businessmen. Apart from these, some people have come down in the role of God of Harishwar village. At whose behest the village moves. Describing them, the author writes: “The whole village moves at the behest of that God. There are a few houses of Hindus in the village. They make idols during the puja-festival. At the end of the puja, the idol is thrown into the Ichhamati river. With the memory of sad worship. (Sadness / 19)
Amir Hamza, a 10th class student of Harishwar Baghdadia Fazil Madrasa. In his helpless life of starvation, he got food in the house of Kanai Das, a goat herder living in a house in the village. The author explains the reason in the regional language in the face of Kanai Das’s wife:
“Shame on you, what are you going to do? Eat Pat Bhari. We are lonely people. Poor people. One poor person will not understand the suffering of another poor person. We can’t stay hungry. We have become Hindus. We have stolen beef. People have religion. Play. Eat quietly and go before the call to prayer. People will not bother you. ”
He made a terrible promise in his mind when he got food from hunger. The whole Harishwar village including the madrasa will give a push. The pillars of negligence and contempt will be shaken. ‘ Through hard work, Hamza got the highest marks in the test. It became known that even though he was a Muslim boy and a student of a madrasa, Hamza ate rice in a Hindu house. The storm of criticism blows. “Hamzar is a serious crime from both social and religious perspectives.” Although released in the village trial, Hamza became abnormal after watching ‘Milon Hatya’. Madrasas, villages and villagers’ dreams were shattered around Hamza. The author’s bias and kind attitude towards the character of Hamza also soaks the heart of the reader. Its tragic consequences are sad.
Apart from Hamza, Idris, Ichcha, Latif Sir, Firoza Begum, Harun Pramanik, Kanai Das, many other characters are rich in many incidents, big and small. According to the basic premise of the novel’s content, this naming is indicative of the author’s artistic intelligence.
[PS: After reading ‘Sadness’, I also want to say,’ Welcome readers to the reading of ‘Sadness’ divided into 27 chapters! I have read only six books published by the author Muhammad Asadullah. ‘Bishadita’ is a book (novel) without excess, plump, beautiful, rich. Congratulations to the author! This sub is remarkable
