Chotti Munda and his arrow by Mahāśvetā Debī ( Book )
14 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"'I had but that one arrow', says Chotti Munda, the hero of this epic tale. A 'magic' arrow that stood for the pride, the wisdom, the culture of his society, a society threatened with inevitable disintegration as its traditional structures crumbled under the assault of 'national development'." "The wide sweep of this important novel encompasses many layers. It ranges over decades in the life of Chotti - the central character - in which India moves from colonial rule to independence and then to the unrest of the 1970s. It probes and uncovers the complex web of social and economic exchange based on power relations. It traces the changes, some forced, some welcome, in the daily lives of a marginalized rural community. And at its core, it celebrates Chotti, legendary archer, wise and farsighted leader, proud role model to his younger brethren."--BOOK JACKET

Breast stories by Mahāśvetā Debī ( Book )
7 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This cluster of short fiction has a common motif: the breast. As Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak points out in her introduction, the breast is far more than a symbol in these stories. It becomes the means of a harsh indictment of an exploitative social system. In "Draupadi", the protagonist, Dopdi Mejhen, is a tribal revolutionary, who, arrested and gang raped in custody, turns the terrible wounds of her breasts into a counter-offensive. In "Breast-giver", a woman who becomes a professional wet-nurse to support her family dies of painful breast cancer, betrayed alike by the breasts that for years had been her chief identity, and the dozens of "sons" she suckled. In "Behind the Bodice" migrant labourer Gangor's "statuesque" breasts excite the attention of ace photographer Upin Puri, triggering off a train of violence that ends in tragedy. Translator and scholar Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, Avalon Foundation Professor in the Humanities, Columnbia University, introduces this cycle of "breast stories"; with thought-provoking essays which probe the texts of the stories, opening them up to a complex of interpretation and meaning
