In the Name of Thy Father is a collection of 100 poems written as a tribute to the Father of the Nation, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman to celebrate his centennial birth anniversary. Bangabandhu has always been a larger than life figure, who transcends, the mortal, the real, and the material. Bangabandhu remains, decades after his untimely death, the most influential and far reaching inspiration for each and every member of this nation till today. This collection of poems is a humble attempt to remember, reflect, and recapture both the essence of Bangabandhu and his legacy, and the way in which Bangabandhu remains relevant for us till today. The universe that the poems in this collection attempts to create is a fictional one, but at the same time not entirely ahistorical. Time is not linear here. The poems juxtapose multiple voices. The main theme that connects the dots is a conversation between a father and his daughter. The readers are taken through a journey to re-construct, reimagine and re-present a reality that is not bound and limited by the time space, historical-geographic context, and attempts to explore alternative, parallel realities, worlds of what ifs and what could have been, as well as what were and what are!
