Most important events of life happen suddenly and accidently. The making and publishing of The Rising of the Fossilized Memory is no exception to that.

The contents of the book were brewed in early nineties by the inspiration of a veteran editor and writer of Bangladesh, Mr. Enayetullah Khan, which were rescued from oblivion after a long interval, i,e fag end of 2021! Life is full of heterogeneous factors, embodiment of sorrows and delights, ups and downs. It always goes through bitter and sweet experiences.

This book of Ms. Farida Huq is telling the stories of such a life which she lived with her dearest and nearest ones. Here she shares her thoughts and happenings about her time and environment, about the people she happened to come across in her day to day life. She possesses an insight to understand the inner truth of the flow of time and history.

She seems not to be an egoist, egotist or egocentric. Rather she has a soft mind to realize the real value of humanity. Her write-ups reflect a kind heart, altruistic and philanthropic attitude. Fellow feelings is her central trait of character. She knows how to delineate her feelings sincerely and honestly. This book bears such witness and proofs.
