Fault Lines is the first anthology containing stories from Bangladesh, Pakistan, India, the United States and the United Kingdom on the theme of 1971. It obliges readers from the subcontinent to ask pertinent questions about their own history. What was a Pakistani soldier thinking when he was ordered to shoot unarmed women and children? How do women who fare worst in times of turmoil and tyranny cope when they become helpless victims of atrocities? Were all Bengalis brave? Were all army men evil?

What is the connection between aesthetics, philosophy, critical thinking, and a better society? This collection of essays addresses the necessity of encouraging free thinking and artistic appreciation if we are to combat social evils. Drawing upon a wide range of religions and philosophies, Ronny Noor attempts to reveal the underlying principles of religious and secular thought. At the same time, he examines the role of popular actors and singers in shaping people’s social and political attitudes through pure aesthetic enjoyment.
