This is my humble request about a controversy of my previous novel ‘A JOURNALIST’S FUN HOUSE’. The first three chapters might be copied from a Bollywood film but I tried something else there. It is like; I went to a site about ‘how to make a comedy novel?’ Then the answer said that copy the comedy scenes and change the topic. Somehow this story is about the actual Bangladesh and a horror story about a relationship.
This novel is dedicated to

19th February-1952, East Pakistan, (summer)
Death is knocking at the door. I wish if I were here, I might take care of you. I learnt that a child of mine is born. I am so happy but at the same time our country became a war-loving country. I do not know, if you are alive or dead but I just want to say I love you.
The mystery should not be told to our son. Take him to my mother safely before I protest these people. You will get shot, we have to strike. The others will be fine. I will be there later. Even I am in Dhaka, you have to go to Chittagong. It is a very quite place. I really loved you but, I am doing this for your safety. I have to die and I have no choices and I do not want to see me like this.

Take care of yourself, someday; you will be a successful man. Hope the future will be bright. All these years you have to struggle your life in an unsafe place you are in.
I hope, Bengal will be victorious in your hands. I hope you will not betray our people. These curses have to be broken my child. Now it is up to you to open the secrets yourself. I wish I would be alive.
