Prelude-March 1971 (Bangladesh: Reliving History With Hindsight)

by Moin Ahsan | January 27, 2011 1:48 am

I was born in Bangladesh and lived there until my early forties. Although now I live in Australia, I keep in touch with Bangladesh almost on a daily basis. Though I was only fourteen at that time, too young to directly participate in the guerrilla war or not brave enough, like most people in Bangladesh, I experienced the 1971 liberation war of Bangladesh from a close quarter. The war left an indelible mark on my young but very politically conscious mind, like most people of our generation. I always had a keen interest in the events surrounding the 1971 liberation war of Bangladesh, and the subsequent events that led to today’s Bangladesh. I have extensively collected and read almost anything that was published on those key events in Bangladesh – but, until now, I never really tried to structure and link my disjointed understandings. So I decided to write it down – my understanding and analyses of the events, based on my personal experience, readings and hindsight. These are essentially my personal analyses of the events.

It is a shared journey of me and Bangladesh as I experienced it.
