Chotti Munda and His Arrow: Insiders and Outsiders in the New Europe
The ink dries and dries. One could read her Marx within this in the middle, as Chotti observes and grows into social consciousness.
But he comes by it through the song of legend and by kin. Lumpen is Mahasweta Debi’s word as well. Mahasweta Debi writes of asthirata, of udbeg. It is the reckless and helpless stirring and learning. So she wrote, not all, but some. It begins with stories, weaves it in and out of this book. The Diku is the cultural conflation of all that is alien, foreign, and often — landowning moneyed Hindu.
It exposes epistemological violence with a kind of blindness, an inevitability that is already past. There’s the sociology I don’t like. When Chotti speaks of his thatched dignified reality it an on a kind of new potentiality. How he slept with a gun under his pillow in the 60s. Now he has time.
