Freedom's mother Feb 4, One war often merges into another.
One lonely journey subsumes the anger of a million footsteps. When Safia Begum walked out of the New Eskaton mansion in the middle of the night with her young son, to protest her husband's second marriage, she had no idea the war in her inner courtyard would one day merge with her land's bloody battle for freedom. Anisul Hoque's Freedom's Mother traces the invisible link between a gutsy woman's rebellion and a people's fight for independence. Long before women's rights became a fashionable term, Safia Begum protected her dignity as a wife and turned her back on the security of a lavish home.
It was only natural that the rough and raw of war would enter her distressed household. Her only child joined the guerrilla campaign and she did not hold him back.
Her home doubled up as a guerrilla base. After Azad was captured by the army, Safia Begum met him in the lockup. In the backdrop of the Bangladesh War, Freedom's Mother is an epic tale of a frail woman's heroism that captures the pulse of an extraordinary time.

Soon after, Ayesha Begum, recovering from the birth of her second child, receives a letter from the air force stating that her husband Joynal Abedin has been sentenced to death, convicted of insurgency.
But has the verdict been carried out? If it was, when and where was he executed? If he was indeed hanged, what has happened to his body? Trying to find answers to these questions, Ayesha embarks on a long and arduous quest to search for her husband, reminiscent of Behula's epic journey in her effort to resurrect her dead husband Lakhinder in the Bengali folktale Manashamangal.
Set against the backdrop of a raging famine, political assassinations and coups that took Bangladesh by storm right after its independence in , Anisul Hoque's The Ballad of Ayesha is as much a story of the newly created nation as it is the story of its people.
