    Taslima Nasrin
    One of my favorite poetess.

    specially I like her STRAIGHTFORWARD writings
    Her crystal clean poetry is WORLD APPEALING really.

    I think for her BRAVE-HEART POINTING OUT writings on WOMANHOOD RIGHTS have showed the true path of Bengali women and only SHE is to be PRAISED for the present PRAISEWORTHY PLACE of BANGLADESHI Women.
