The War of Pride

Sanyat Sattar


Durdiner Dinlipi
(Diary of the Difficult Days)
Abul Fazal
Somoy Prokashan; February 2001

This is a touching compilation of incidents that occurred during our nine long months of struggle. It describes the pathetic situation that more or less every family went through at that time. The struggle was not only a physical one, but also mental and psychological as well. Many of our beloved ones joined the war and never came back. Few accepted a retarded life forever. The description is sure to touch the heart of the readers. Indeed a masterpiece.

The role of Yahiya Khan, the ex-president of Pakistan, during the war period has been criticised here along with other characters who played an evil dual-role and caused immense casualty.
