A pre-independence period play set in 1943. Rabindra, a widower, is a rich, London-educated entrepreneur who owns a bank and is a coveted member of the elite of Cuttack City. Lonely and increasingly disillusioned with the sheer duplicity of the prevalent elitist social order, he turns into an alcoholic. Kanaka, a destitute village girl educated in Gandhi Ashram, comes into his life by chance and is provided a job and shelter in his home. Despite her modest background, she is intelligent, confident and attractive. Their verbal jousting and her companionship provide Rabindra a welcome relief from his existing oppressively superficial environment. Inevitably, they find themselves drawn to each other. But their idyllic courtship is interrupted when Ananta, an old acquaintance of Kanaka (and an employee of the bank), who had deserted her years ago after a promise of marriage enters the scene and begins a campaign to malign Rabindra…

This book is a detailed analysis of the food scarcity and epidemics among the womenfolk and other vulnerable sections of society in colonial Orissa. Its major significance lies in the fact that the food crisis, mass exodus and adverse sex ratio continue to raise questions in the contemporary world. Studies of such experiences help in re-designing strategies to meet the challenges arising from natural disasters, wars, pandemics, besides poverty and uncertain production outcomes. The study of Orissa Famine of 1866 explodes the myth upheld by the colonial administrators that women died at a lower rate than men in famines, because they could easily adapt to food scarcity and were supposedly less prone to infectious diseases. Evidence based on historical, sociological and biological factors showed that increasing male migration, much of it, leading to high mortality, explains the change in sex ratio during the colonial period. This work also shows that many of today’s consumption preferences, linguistic usages and cultural habits of people, carry traces of cataclysmic experiences. This book also highlights the fact that most famines are the result of policy failures and, are often rooted in structural inequalities with serious consequences for women, lower castes and the poor alike.
