Description

This is a story about Bangladesh, a nation borne out of high ideals of brotherhood, self-determination and song. Exploring a young nation where fences and furniture are woven from wicker and bamboo from verdant plains and ancient hills reverberate with music and poetry. Yvette Claire Rosser, a passionate writer with an immeasurable curiosity, finds disturbing signs of increasing attempts, on the part of the political and religious establishment, to takeover young minds. In this seminal work, she studies the collective loss of memory in Bangladesh, orchestrated, as she finds, by years of overt military coercion and promoted by an accelerating influence of Islamisation reflected, quite glaringly, in school textbooks.

An alumnus of University of Texas at Austen, Yvette Claire Rosser is a research scholar at observer Research Foundation. A committed South Asian expert, she has been invited as a consultant on the subject at various forums. Implicit in her academic association with South Asia lies also a desire to study the educational structure in Ida per se and tangentially also its impact on curriculum in the United States. Education and south Asia are also combined research area for Ms. Rosser who has authored several papers on the same. Religion, meta-physics and theoretical insights on a number of issues form a key referral point to a majority of Ms Rosser's publications.
She is the author of ORF Monograph, Islamisation of Pakistani Social Studies Textbooks, published in 2003.

An educator and a Scholar, Mr Rosser remains committed to the raising of her three children. In her free time, she relaxes by working in her gardens.
