An eminent social worker, late Ferdousi Rahman’s book ‘Katha O Smriti’ has been published by UPL recently. The book is available at the pavilion No.17 in Amar Ekushey Book Fair 2021.
Ferdousi Rahman writes about various festivities and myriad social issues of the country, drawing it from her own experiences from her long overseas expatriate life of nearly 40 years and her extensive worldwide travels. In lucid precise style, in the book, she focuses on the sufferings of marginalised people, the discrimination and neglect facing women, especially elderly women in our society. She also attempts to suggest how these issues and challenges can be addressed. The book also contains a few of her poems written on various occasions. It is an enjoyable read for anyone interested in the social milieu of the country.
