after a million light years Draupadi strangely enough sees sky and moon Slowly the bloodied nailheads shift from her brain Trying to move she feels her arms and legs still tied to four posts Something sticky under her ass and waist Her own blood Only the gag has been removed Incredible thirst In case she says ‘water’ she catches her lower lip in her teeth She senses that her vagina is bleeding How many came to make her” – From Draupadi by Mahasweta Devi translated by Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak Mahasweta Devi She with the pen The passion For words Words that cut To the core She with the passion of a knife Sharpened over a lifetime of throwing herself into the fray I’ve had to fight all my life to be the person I am by throwing my body into the fray each time ‘Body phele debo’ is my war cry This fight this war is not only for human rights it is about the right to be human “How hard is it to find a word” I once asked “Whenever I come across an interesting word I write it down All these notebooks Koto katha So many words so many sounds I’ve just been collecting them For example Parnanar A man made of polash leaves Say a man has died in a train disaster His body couldn’t be brought home His relatives then using straw using leaves make a man Subhhikshma You’ve heard of durbhikshma Or famine When one describes a year as being subhhikshma it means there was no crop failure that year Sumeans good Paap purush Doomed to eternal life He has not sinned himself But he keeps account of everybody else’s paap Ceaselessly Walking the earth Taking note” Yes she found the words Till she couldn’t Till she lost them in the fog So she carried crumbs Breadcrumbs In every conversation Like puzzles To solve To help her find her way home Later Much later When the mist would begin to rise And cling to things In and around her Those were the markers in her treasure hunt Planted hints Concealed moles The advance guard In a war that would surely take place In her innocence she had failed To realise The first casualty would be the power lines Short circuited The enemy would cut off her ability to recognize To recall her masterplan Even the very signs she had so diligently put in place Now they were part of an alien landscape A geography lesson Of her own making She who hated middle-class morality Dismissed it as sham “Everything is suppression” she said Often “Writing is my real world in which I have lived And survived” Since the 1980s she has been vocal about the injustices faced by the dispossessed of our population The indigenous peoples the landless rural poor who then turn into itinerant labour or pavement dwellers in cities Through reports in newspapers petitions court cases letters to the authorities participation in activist organisations and advocacy through the grassroots journal she edited Bortika in which the dispossessed tell their own truths and finally through her fiction “I have sought to bring the harsh reality of this ignored segment of India’s population to the notice of the nation I have sought to include their forgotten and invisible history in the official history of the nation I have said over and over our independence was false; there has been no independence for these dispossessed peoples still deprived of their most basic rights How to save and protect one’s culture in these circumstances When there is no home to return to Whose culture is it anyway Yours Mine Theirs After all there are many ‘theirs’ in the land of my birth who have nothing but the harsh landscape of surviving from day to day The dispossessed remain with us after six decades of becoming possessed of a freedom we all fought for They all fought for I claim to have always written about the ‘culture of the downtrodden’ How tall or short or true or false is this claim The more I think and write and think some more the harder it gets to arrive at a definition I hesitate I falter I cling to the belief that for any culture as old and ancient as ours to have survived over time there could only be one basic common and acceptable core thought: Humaneness To accept each others’ right to be human with dignity This then is my fight in my life and in my literature” “What inspires you” I asked “Oh everything” she said The woman was an artist Not a painter And yet the anemic white paper would turn into a rainforest or a blooming garden in spring – complete with an army of caterpillars waiting to transform into butterflies under her persuasive glance A wordsmith too One who could chisel the alphabet into forms that glittered like language at its resplendent best Or transform seemingly isolated words into poetry She found suitable and amiable company for lonely sentences that longed to be strung together into heart-rending prose And let me not

have to abandon his principles at least for now to get some solidity and shape (Source: AP) Top News Frank de Boer is just three Premier League games into his time at Crystal Palace and already there are echoes of his ill-fated stint at Inter Milan His initial pledge to play a more attractive brand of football and to “dominate” games A puzzling start-of-season switch of formation to a three-man defense Disappointing early results and sudden revisionism over whether he is the right man for the job De Boer lasted 84 days at Inter before getting fired by the team’s Chinese owners leading to the Dutchman to Twitter to express his view that “this task required more time to move forward” The good news for De Boer is that he’s lasted longer at Palace than he did at the Italian club The bad news The widespread reports not to mention alarming bookmakers’ odds suggesting Palace’s board might already be having reservations about De Boer’s suitability at the perennial Premier League struggler Palace has started the Premier League with three straight losses _ at against Huddersfield and Swansea and at Liverpool _ and has yet to score a goal In the two home losses Palace’s players have looked uncomfortable adapting to De Boer’s possession-based approach which is a giant leap from the pragmatism directness and counter-attacking favored by previous manager Sam Allardyce De Boer is an odds-on favorite with some British bookmakers to become the first Premier League manager to leave his post and reportedly held talks with chairman Steve Parish on Monday Another Palace loss on Saturday at a Burnley side with a strong home record since returning to the Premier League for the 2015-16 season would leave the club’s American owners _ David Blitzer and Josh Harris _ with a big decision to make Can they hold their nerve and keep a long-term view of things Because time is clearly what De Boer needs Palace knew what it was getting in hiring De Boer whose connections with Ajax _ as a former player and coach there _ mean he is devoted to a philosophy of possession and playing an expansive game That couldn’t be more different to the style Palace employed under Allardyce as the team scrambled once again to avoid relegation from the world’s richest soccer league De Boer arrived in June on a three-year deal and with ambitions of making the team entertaining to watch and integrating more youth-team players He said his primary objective was to turn a team that regularly battles relegation into a stable Premier League force Sitting alongside De Boer at his presentation Parish backed the Dutchman’s bold vision but will he maintain that commitment It would be rare show of patience in the short-term world of modern soccer De Boer has had the two-week break for internationals to come up with a plan for the Burnley match and beyond Palace has looked better when the team has switched to a 4-3-3 formation after starting games with a 3-4-3 and De Boer might have to abandon his principles _ at least for now _ to get some solidity and shape Having France center back Mamadou Sakho available following his deadline-day move from Liverpool will help De Boer has been unlucky to see winger Wilfried Zaha Palace’s best player get injured in the opening game and not play since De Boer also needs more from record signing Christian Benteke even though Palace hasn’t been playing to the big striker’s strengths If De Boer doesn’t survive much longer at Palace it will be two successive failures for a coach who was hailed for helping lay the foundations for the reawakening of Ajax one of European soccer’s most storied clubs following his successful time in charge there from 2010-16 Yet the finger would best be pointed at the people who hired De Boer in the first place For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Agencies | Hyderabad | Published: September 7 2012 5:23 pm Related News Famous Telugu film and TV
