Poet's Notes about The Poem

Januadilemma:

Dilemma of January, (5th January 2014 in Bangladesh, is renamed here: Januadilemma.


Background:

General elections were held in Bangladesh on 5 January 2014, in accordance with the constitutional requirement that the election must take place within the 90-day period before the expiration of the term of the Jatiyo Sangshad on 24 January 2014. The elections were controversial, with almost all major opposition parties boycotting and 154 of the total 300 seats being uncontested. Around 21 people were killed on polling day.

Yet, the rulers called it a historical achievement towards democracy!
