Blame is about Laila and to some extent about Gita, from the ages of 13 in 1965 to 19 in 1971, when they are disowned by their families for having been raped during the liberation war.

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.

A much-longed daughter is born with hair the colour of sunlight on the river. The shock of Daria’s silvery hair makes the midwife wet herself in the birthing room — an omen for the village gossip. The impropriety surrounding Daria’s birth travels round the village of Gulab Ganga, as the neighbours and relatives speculate what the future has in store for such a girl. Daria grows up affected by the rumours that circulate around the village each and every time she does anything atypical of a girl of her background.

Fire of Bengal plunges us into the midst of life in Rabindranath Tagore’s Santiniketan during the late 1920s. Rozsa Hajnoczy, wife of a Hungarian professor, kept a journal of her impression during their three years stay at the ashram. After her death in 1942 this was published in Budapest and became one of the classics of modern Hungarian literature.
