This is the second edition of our bestseller, 'Mahishasur: Ek Jannayak'. It is based on the Bahujan cultural discourse that has taken root in India. In one of the pieces that form part of this compilation, Shibu Soren, former Jharkhand chief minister, says: "Whenever I heard of the killing of Ravana and Mahishasur-slayer Durga, I felt very odd. The reason: Mahishasur’s looks and dress closely resembled ours. Like us, he lived in the forest. Like us, he grazed cows and, like us, he hunted. One question that often perturbed me was what made the so-called gods fight against the Asurs. When he grew up, he realized that all this was a conspiracy of the elite classes to wrest control over the water, forests and land of the Tribals. When I became chief minister of Jharkhand for the first time in 2005, I decided to get a survey done for the welfare of the Asur community. The idea was to save the community from the verge of extinction and bring it into the social mainstream. During my second term in 2008 too, I took the initiative to draw up a policy for the purpose but it didn't bear fruit. I want the younger generation to see the truth behind the superstitions and myths propagated by the elite and to contribute to the building of a new society."
