The characters of Nasreen Jahan’s stories are social misfits and discards, people who rarely attract attention because they are not charming or sophisticated, people whose stories are rarely told. Thus an old man rises from his grave to hunt down his wife’s killer; a cripple, mocked by everyone, tries to prove his virility; a cattle thief finds himself in rivalry with vultures.

সেই আঠারো জোয়ার-ভাটার দেশ, যেখানে তিনটি নদী এসে মিশেছে, বঙ্গোপসাগরের কাছে ম্যানগ্রোভ বনের গভীরে হাজার হাজার লক্ষ লক্ষ কোটি কোটি মৌমাছি বাস করতো। এই মৌমাছিদের আবার পরিচালনা করতো একজন দেবী মৌমাছি।

এই মৌমাছিরা মৌচাক ভরে রাখতো ঘন সোনালী মধুতে, যাকে কেউ কেউ বলতো তরল আলো  - যা গাছের গা থেকে সূর্যের মিষ্টি ফোঁটার মত বেয়ে নামতো। সকল জীবজন্ত এবং পাখি এই মধু ভালোবাসতো, কিন্তু সবার চেয়ে বেশি মধু ভালবাসতো যে ছেলেটি, তার মাথায় খাড়া খাড়া চুল, আর তার নাম শনু  ।

Epistemology or sources of knowledge has always been problematic and contentious. This is not only with reference to the issue of hegemony, when the empowered tends to impose its ‘knowledge’ on the disempowered but also with reference to the political contamination of disciplinary quests and treatment of space, which often tends to distort knowledge itself.

The power struggle that goes on in Bangladesh calls for a new consensus if the country has to achieve its politico-economic freedom.
