Co-published with University of Liberal Arts Bangladesh and Niyogi Books, this book of photography covers Bangladeshis during the Liberation War of 1971. Ace photographer Ragu Rai documented the plight of the refugees, the action during the war and the jubilant scenes of victory and Independence. His treasure trove of photographs, which for over four decades he thought had been lost, was recently rediscovered.
The stories are perhaps not unknown, but have been retold by a master storyteller-the refugee camps, the exodus, the never-ending journey, a whirlwind of poignant, tormented history. And finally, anew nation, a new tomorrow. Bangladesh: The Price of Freedom are never before seen photographs which comprise a significant body of work documenting a turning point in the history of South Asia.
