Losing Home …

Back in December, I was asked to contribute to the memoir section of a special edition of  Sugar Mule – a literary magazine. The issue is titled No Place Like Home – Borders, Boundaries, and Identity in South Asia and Diaspora.

I am glad to share that the issue is out now and I have written an account of my parents’ forced separation following the War of 1971 and independence of Bangladesh, it is called Losing Home.

  • Absolutely loved this. So touching, and so very sad. The things we do in the name of nationalism and a sense of “identity”.
    Do keep writing.


  • Bonjour Tazeen,

    If possible, could you post here your article “Losing Home”. I would very much like to read this. Meanwhile, I gather your parents managed to reunite in Karachi sometimes after this war ended.


    • Dear Georg,
      I am afraid I cannot post my article here because of copyrights but you can read it in the link given in the article.
      Yes, my parents were reunited later because I was born much later 🙂

Got anything to say? Go ahead and leave a comment!
