Mother of 1084
Mother of 1084
Description
From the Jacket:

Mahasweta Devi is widely acknowledged as one of India's foremost writers. Her trenchant, powerful, satiric fiction has won her recognition in the form of the Sahitya Akademi (1979) and Jnanpith (1996) awards, amongst several other literary honours. She was also awarded the Padmasree in 1986, for her activist work amongst dispossessed tribal communities.

This sensitive novel, written in 1973-74, deals with the psychological and emotional trauma of a mother who awakens one morning to the shattering news that her beloved son is lying dead in the police morgue, reduced to a mere numeral; corpse no. 1084. This awakening propels her on a journey of discovery, in the course of which, struggling to understand her Naxalite son's revolutionary commitment, she begins to recognize her own alienation, as a woman and wife, from the complacent, hypocritical, bourgeois society her son had rebelled against.

About the Author:

Mother of 1084; one of Mahasweta Devi's most widely-read works in Bengal, is an insightful exploration of the complex relationship between the personal and the political. It is also considered a significant milestone in her literary career, a watershed novel both in terms of approach and content, and in terms of language and style.

Samik Bandyopadhyay, who has translated and introduced this novel, is an eminent scholar and writer who has translated several of Mahasweta Devi's works, and has been closely connected with her career for several decades.

I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
