Born into a literary family, Mahasweta Devi was also influenced by her early association with Gananatya, a group who attempted to bring social and political theater to rural villages in Bengal in the s and s. This work also marked the beginning of a prolific literary career. In the next half-century, Devi published twenty collections of short stories and close to a hundred novels , primarily in her native language of Bengali.

Devi, Mahsweta

In fact, this Bengali novel, written by one the greatest living Bengali writers, asks both questions. Who owns the rights to a forest that has been the home of a tribal people from ancient times? And does a forest have any rights? This is the rousing and ultimately tragic story of Birsa Munda , the tribal revolutionary who organised a guerrilla army against the mighty British colonial force.


Giving Voice to the Tribal Community in Mahasweta Devi’s Aranyer Adhikar.

Giving voice to a muted and marginalized community is one of the main goals of Literature. Literature acts as the perfect medium to show the sufferings of subjugated people to the public. Literary theory is the systematic study of the nature of literature and the tools that can be used to analyze literature. Post colonial literature is the literature by people from formerly colonized countries. It addresses the problems and consequences of the decolonization of a country. It deals with the themes of racism, colonialism, suppression, identity crisis etc.
