The author gives the readers a step-by-step directive as to how one can be mindful in all its essence. As simple and easy as it seems mindfulness is not always easy to put into practice.

Life in Bangladesh has been a topic of several book by now but still it has never lost its novelty as it is something no-one else can imagine and have gone through. A life of uncertainty is the greatest trauma one could go through. The female protagonist Ayesha's life is one that no-one could simply imagine and put into paper.

Inspired by a true story, The Ballad of Ayesha is the tale of a woman who got married at a young age to an Air Force Officer. Her live is a beautifull rhythmic ballad till her husband is accused of insurgency and she gets a mail informing her that he is sentenced to death. Grown up hearing the tale of Behula who fought death to bring her husband back, Ayesha is determined to find the truth about her husband. But life has several unexpected shock in store for her, which leaves her stupified but how she vanquishes her obstacles and emerge like a winner is the crux of the story.

The climax is straight and without much unexpected dramatic twists. Author has tried to bring the instances as close to reality as possible. Nonetheless the demography of the tale is purely fictional so are the names of the characters. The narration is lucid. The translator has done an exemplary job in preserving the authenticity.


A lucid and palpable tale of a woman who emerged like a phoenix
