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.

Testimonials
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
