Book Review. . .
This review was done for The Tales Pensieve (TTP) under their reviewer program.
The Seventies decade of the Twentieth century started on a very inconsolable note especially for the South Asian countries. There were series of events & agitations in eastern Pakistan that culminated in the Indo-Pak war of 1971 eventually leading to the birth of a new nation called ‘Bangladesh’. The irony of these events is that despite being involving one of the major homicides & exodus of those times (after the infamous partition of India), these remain one of the grossly forgotten incident of world history.
