“MY SON DOESN’T CALL ME MOTHER”this is her only pain; Monowara said.
Monowara has to take lots of medicines for his mental treatment.Monowara got married when she was only 11 years old. She lived with
her husband for 10 years. Her husband sent her Lebanon to work as a maidservant as their
economic condition was not good.
After working there one and half year the wife of the employer gave her an injection to be
physically fit. But after the injection she has
developed mental disorder
and felt sick. After that the employer sent her back to Bangladesh.
Staying nine months with her family in Bangladesh she went to Dubai to work again. But she couldn’t continue there, as she got mentally sick again. She returned home and stayed another year with her family. Finally she went to Saudi Arabia, with the help of a local
agent. After working there five months, she didn’t get any salary,
moreover she has been locked into the room.
She is back home now and getting better after the treatment but her biggest disappointment is
that “ My son doesn’t call me mother, because his school friends told
him that your mother is mad, she is not normal.” Singair Bangladesh, 2019.
