CFP: Special Issue on Mahasweta Devi


Mahasweta Devi, an eminent activist Bengali writer and a Jnanapeeth Award winner is no more. Her sudden death on 28th July, 2016 has left a deep void on the Indian literary scene. She waged a relentless war against the establishment for the rights of the under privileged and marginalized communities of the Indian society. Besides her literary output, which includes novels, short stories, children’s literature etc., she contributed a number of journalistic pieces covering various aspects of the social and political issues of our society.

In honour of her great personality and as a tribute to her seminal work Bharatiya Pragna: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Indian Studies is planning to bring out a special issue. Besides literature the issue will also focus on various aspects of her work.  We invite contributions for this special number from our readers.
