Based on eight years of research, the book “Whispers and Wailings” written by Author and Professor Khan Mosleh, has been distributed to various countries in the Middle East since January 1, 2012. The book has been used for both employment and teaching purposes.
“Whispers and Wailings” revolves around the author’s long journey, where he came in contact with thousands of Bangladeshi migrant workers and heard from them the tragic history of their lives. Although the workers are termed ‘remittance fighters,’ they are neglected on their own country’s soil. In the Middle East, they are called ‘Miskin.’ These heroic workers sacrifice their happiness for 12 to 14 hours daily and seven days a week – some even 29 days a month – and still bring smiles to the faces of the country and family.
When the author came in contact with Hossein, a housemaid in a neighboring house in 2016, he came to know the details of his daily life. After seeing Hossein up close and finding out everything that he has been through, a latent desire arose in the author’s mind that these workers need to tell their unknown chapters to the world.
Little by little, the author started recording different people’s words and continues to do so until now. The book tells the life story of the workers and describes the geographical and social aspects of the Middle East to acquaint the readers. The book includes an article on what they need to know about employment abroad, especially in Qatar and UAE. The book is also dedicated to the cause of millions of migrantworkers.
