ABOUT THIS BOOK
Masih, a farmer, is indentured to landowner Mohammed Hakim. Forced by
exploitation and utter poverty, Masih contracts his seven-year-old son Patrus to
serve a six-year apprenticeship in a carpet factory. A different form of bondage,
though just as vicious, plagues Mohammed’s family. Chamak, his niece, is abducted
and forced into sexual slavery. She succeeds in escaping, but is forever imprisoned
by the absurd codes of shame and purity that society imposes on her.
A sensitive portrayal of human suffering and the ultimate triumph of the human
spirit, Bonded is a compelling read.
