About the book...
The book is a collectors’ item and features one important event almost on each day of 1971, capturing freedom movement culminating in the creation of Bangladesh. Each event (news story or photograph) was curated from the news & photograph of that event published in a leading daily between January-December 1971 across the world.
The book has been edited by Narendra Kumar, India's foremost publisher (Har-Anand Publications) who has been a pioneer in his field and has closely observed the events of 1971 through publication of famous book Rape of Bangladesh by journalist Anthony Mascarenhas.
This collector’s item would not have been a reality without constant encouragement from Dipanjan Roy Chaudhury, Diplomatic Editor, The Economic Times.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
A man of varied interests, Narendra Kumar is an eminent publisher, educationist and sports administrator.
He has written several books on publishing, education and foreign heads of states. He has extensively lectured both in India and abroad.
He heads several institutions including the recently set-up Independent Think Tank.
The present work is based on author's tribute to the bravehearts of Bangladesh & the sacrifices made by them to ensure the honour and dignity of their people.
In 1971, the Pakistani military junta wanted to prevent Bengalis of then East Pakistan from pursuing their just demands by using brute force. When the Pakistani army unleashed a genocidal attack on unarmed civilians on March 25, citizens of East Pakistan revolted, and after a nine-month war that resulted in a great deal of bloodshed and suffering, East Pakistan emerged as an independent nation – Bangladesh.
The ideals of Liberation War thus entail, among other things, resistance to unjust display of power, tyrannical and exploitative rule, sexual violence, religious intolerance, and racial hatred. The freedom-fighters and founding fathers of Bangladesh also deeply valued shared identity as Bengalis that bound people of all religions in the country.
