Muhammed Zafar Iqbal
Rasha: Little Girl, Big Heartby: Muhammed Zafar Iqbal
Fourteen-year-old Rasha is abandoned by her mother in a village with her aged – and probably mad – grandmother. Uprooted from her school and her friends back in cosmopolitan Dhaka, a disgruntled Rasha has to start life afresh in a faraway place with no electricity, incessant rains, nosy neighbours and a primitive school.
Refusing to resign to circumstance, however, Rasha rises above them and turns indomitable. Learning to take a boat to school and teaching her classmates how to use computers are only a couple of this young girl’s incredible exploits!
But just as Rasha settles into her new life, new friends in tow, she is confronted by a nightmarish past that once ravaged her family.
Will Rasha survive this daunting and astounding adventure?
