Naddiyaa is loved by a mad mad man. But is he really mad? Just because he doesn’t fit the society description of a man he is mad? But does Naddiyaa also think he is a mad person? Does Naddiyaa reciprocate this mad man’s love?
This book is a series of letter written by Durjoy for his lover and his wife Naddiyaa. Durjoy, whom everyone thinks is a mad person, is madly and wholly in love with Naddiyaa. Naddiyaa who craved for love from a very long time because after her mother demise her father never cared nor even paid attention to her. But what happened that even after being married to a man who loves Naddiyaa so much she couldn’t find love in her life?
This book very aptly tells you one thing that love is not for anyone. Sometimes you are loved so much by someone but it is not in your fate to be with that person.
I personally felt that this book was more in the form of prose. The writing of the book is actually quite different and at times quite difficult to decipher.
It is flooded with emotions. Letters written by Durjoy are nothing but expression of his love for Naddiyaa. They are so deep, so heart warming, selfless and yes truly a mad man’s love.
The pace of the book is quite slow. Because there are many family secrets hidden in the story but they are revealed at a very slow pace. So you have to be quiet patient while reading this book because it has some good twist but they will not reveal all at once.
This book is extreme not only on emotional level but also at situational level. Because the condition of the woman in late 60’s were definitely worst. Getting marry at an early age, not being able to study, to provide and exist for men and only men and many more such conditions are described.
Society is very cruel. They had the definition of each and everything and if you don’t fit in the definition they discard you by calling you names. If such thing still prevails in the 21st century then just imagine the late 60’s in India. This book also put a light on such definition of men and women.
So overall if you really want to read something emotional and about selfless love, do read this book.
