about this item
This book brings together Rehman Sobhan’s personal story situated within the historical events of Bangladesh, from its birth as East Pakistan to its evolution as an independent democratic state.
It is a narration of events by the author who lived through some extraordinary phases in the histories of India, Pakistan and Bangladesh and the impact this had on him. His story relates to the life and perspectives of an individual born into a family of relative privilege and educated at elite schools, but moved on to a different trajectory from its intended path and eventually became involved in the political struggles that culminated in the emergence of an independent Bangladesh. The chapters are spread across a wide canvas elaborating his family history and those who played a vital role in his personal or public life.
