In the "Silent and the Lost," Alex Salim McKensie, a war baby of Bangladesh, is adopted by the McKensies who lost Frank, their only son, in Vietnam. Alex's search takes us into the boiling cauldron of clashes in East Pakistan in 1971. There, through the eyes of newlyweds, Nahar and Rafique, we are immersed into the revolution that created Bangladesh. In today's podcast, I will be reading an excerpt from the end of the chapter, "The Mukti Bahini," pages 177 through 179 in my novel. The setting is Gazipur, East Pakistan, late May, 1971. These guerrillas, the Mukti Bahini, have just completed an operation to blow up a bridge and have lost Jewel and Khalid, two of their own, in a bloody battle.
