Some bengali reading ...

Currently reading the bengali novel 'Lajja' by Taslima Nasrin, that was banned by the Bangladesh government and a fatwa was issued against her . Set in Bangladesh, it speaks about the communal frenzy and retaliation against the Hindu community in Bangladesh, after the Babri Masjid was demolished in India, through the eyes of the members of a particular Hindu family. Some info on Nasrin here: [1], [2]

My speed of reading bengali has really come down, need to read more.
