Archana Katariya, Priyanka Chaudhary.

Abstract
This study aims to analyse the traumatized memories of war on the characters by the doings of a little autistic girl. It shows that how the drawings of a disabled girl represent the earthen memories repressed by the characters. It also presents the atrocities against the women in war. In this investigation, the material and information are used, issued by the Government of Bangladesh in the 1971 war as a primary and secondary source. I have used textbook references for analysis and secondary sources have been used to fill the gap. To find out the consequence of the 1971 combat on the present and future of Bangladesh, some secondary sources have been carried out by the author. The findings suggest that the experience of traumatic memories significantly affect a person's brain. These unforgettable memories completely distract his instinct and that is why he starts suppressing them in his unconscious mind, but these memories come out unknowingly in his life and offer him the agony. The findings from this study can contribute to analysing the traumatized memories on account of the war that has a very severe mark on the personalities of the people that is impossible to overcome. In this way, the war is not the solution to the problems rather it demolishes the humanity and it makes humans worse than animals. In this research, a common framework in analysing the traumatized memories and its side effects are done with the reference of the novel that fits even in our current scenario.

Key words: Episodic Memory, Liberation War, Rape, Retrieval of memories, Trauma, Sorayya Khan
