Blame is about Laila and to some extent about Gita, from the ages of 13 in 1965 to 19 in 1971, when they are disowned by their families for having been raped during the liberation war. The place is East Pakistan ‒ now known as Bangladesh. Apart from following Laila and Gita, the book also depicts the tensions between Muslims and Hindus, Pakistan and India, Urdu and Bengali, males and females; it crosses cultures and speaks of friendship, betrayal, sacrifice, love and shame...

The characters of Nasreen Jahan’s stories are social misfits and discards, people who rarely attract attention because they are not charming or sophisticated, people whose stories are rarely told. Thus an old man rises from his grave to hunt down his wife’s killer; a cripple, mocked by everyone, tries to prove his virility; a cattle thief finds himself in rivalry with vultures.

সেই আঠারো জোয়ার-ভাটার দেশ, যেখানে তিনটি নদী এসে মিশেছে, বঙ্গোপসাগরের কাছে ম্যানগ্রোভ বনের গভীরে হাজার হাজার লক্ষ লক্ষ কোটি কোটি মৌমাছি বাস করতো। এই মৌমাছিদের আবার পরিচালনা করতো একজন দেবী মৌমাছি।

এই মৌমাছিরা মৌচাক ভরে রাখতো ঘন সোনালী মধুতে, যাকে কেউ কেউ বলতো তরল আলো  - যা গাছের গা থেকে সূর্যের মিষ্টি ফোঁটার মত বেয়ে নামতো। সকল জীবজন্ত এবং পাখি এই মধু ভালোবাসতো, কিন্তু সবার চেয়ে বেশি মধু ভালবাসতো যে ছেলেটি, তার মাথায় খাড়া খাড়া চুল, আর তার নাম শনু  ।

The thirteen stories in this collection span a period of nearly thirty years, from the early sixties to the late nineties, and are the works of some of the most respected fiction writers of Bangladesh. No connoisseur of Bangla literature will dispute the fact that an anthology of short stories by writers from Bangladesh cannot be complete without them. However, the problems of logistics make it the editor's painful duty to exclude all but just a few out of a vast array of superb literary creations.
