Bengal Raag is a wonderful book about twin sisters and their childhood in Bangladesh, formerly known as East Pakistan. A blend of fiction and real life, it chronicles an important moment in the history of that region. Although seen through the eyes of children, it deals with adult and complex issues of family dynamics, belonging and separation amidst a gradual building up of social, cultural and political tensions.

Hopeful/y the Pomegranate contains a small selection of Syed Najmuddin Hashim’s poems, ranging over four decades. From the deeply felt emotion of personal poems to the controlled anger of “political” ones, the poems reveal a man who at all times thought and felt intensely. Written in English, the poems are nevertheless rooted in Bangladesh even as they suggest a man who believed that he shared a common heritage with the rest of the world.

Syed Waliuliah’s Chander Amabasya (1964), rendered by Afia Dii as Night of No Moon, narrates the story of a young man whose world of innocent dreams collapses when he is forced to enter the world of experience. Arif Ali, a young man of twenty-four, has come from a village to work in a primary school in a small mofussil town. One dark night he stumbles upon the dead body of a murdered woman. His romantic idealism and his love of life keep him from acknowledging stark reality and he even thinks of forgiving the murderer whom he knows.

The poems in Time of my Life are about desh, motherhood and personal emotions. Imagination and poetic images turn the writer’s private spaces into interpretive verses. Her poems are subjective and discuss the challenges of a South Asian woman, a mother and a politically conscious citizen. Written in free verse with flexible punctuations, the poems reflect Rubana’s own space, which often crosses borders, puts clocks to shame, and tempts reality

Tree Without Roots is the English translation/transcreation of Syed Waliullah’s classic novel Lal Shalu. With no land or skills to support himself otherwise, Majeed preys upon the simple rural folk by exploiting religion, becoming the self-appointed guardian of a mazar, which he claims is that of a saint. Not satisfied with his first wife, he marries again, this time a woman who is not as amenable as his loving first wife.
