9789840740819: Wedding ;: And, The wild kite

Wedding and the Wild Kite are the translations of Momtazuddin Ahmed's two remarkable plays entitled Bibaho and Ki Chaho Shonkhochil respectively, by Mohammad Nurul Huda. They mainly deal with two of the most significant junctures of our national history, the Language movement of 1952 and the War Liberation in 1971. In Wedding the plot pivots round the leading character Sakhina who remains for life a would-be-bride of a language-martyr killed by police firing on the streets of Dhaka on Twentyfirst February of 1952, upholding the spirit of the Language Movement. The while breasted kite flying in the sky symbolizes loneliness of a helpness woman divided into two opposing identities : a loving mother and a loyal wife.
