As Liberation War ended on 16th December in 1971 in erstwhile East Pakistan, a new nation emerged as Bangladesh with lofty ideals of democracy, socialism and secularism. Ironically, these dreams stood crushed as years rolled by and hit 46th year with the nation heading for another election.
Democracy and peoples’ rights seem to have become victims under the major dynastic political parties like Awami League and Bangladesh Nationalist Party. What added to the problem has been sudden Chinese presence with Indian influence waning; and huge Rohingya refugees. The book is based on interviews and tours, which reveals a gloomy outcome— election without democracy in a strategically important nation.
