Hajaar Churasir Maa (Hardcover) Price: Rs. 46

Hajaar Churasir Maa is a literary masterpiece, first published in 1974, by the noted author and social activist, Mahasweta Devi. Having closely worked with the under-privileged tribes and been actively associated with causes to help the socially oppressed and restricted strata, Mahasweta Devi weaves the saga of a mother’s journey to social awakening and enlightenment from a dormant and expressionless life originating from the unfortunate and untimely death of her youngest son and a Naxalite, Brati. Sujata, the mother, visits the police station to claim her son’s body, that is no longer defined by a mere casket number, 1084. In her quest to understand the drive behind her son’s association with the Naxalites and his perceptions and beliefs regarding the hypocritical social and political structure, Sujata comes across discovering and asserting her own identity as a mother, wife, and social being.


Mahasweta Devi is a social activist and a writer. Many other notable works by her include Shikar Parba (Bengali), Aranyer Adhikar, and Dust on the Road. Born on January 14, 1926, in a highly literary family, Mahasweta Devi obtained her Masters in English from Calcutta University. Currently, she is leading movements in her native state that aim to restrict the industrialization policies from confiscating the agricultural lands belonging to the poor.

Should Have Read it Before!

A potrait of the Naxal Period of Bengal, but more than that the charcters seems to be alive and walking even today.The picture of the rich as potrayed by the writer has now been switched over by today's upper middle class, who are doing the same evils, as was done by the rich before. The writers command over the language, makes the characters play before you,and one will be forced to finish reading in one go.

a book on naxals...on how a boy from a rich family joins a movement to protest against the atrocities of the society...and gets killed...a touching book that re-echoes the cruelty that was done to those who dared to dream for a better nation!!hats off to the writer.
