The Lost World of Sarala Devi: Selected Works

Sachidananda Mohanty (Editor)

A multifaceted personality and a prolific Odia writer, Sarala Devi (1904–1986) was a noted freedom fighter, feminist, and social activist of her times. Her work covers many forms, including prose, fiction, play, literary criticism, and biography. This book brings together some of Sarala Devi’s best writings, including her charming tales for children with fascinating characters. Far ahead of her time, and completely forgotten now, she voiced important social and political concerns through her works and advocated a larger role for women in the public sphere.

Edited by Sachidananda Mohanty, this compilation of lucid pieces translated from Odia not only enables us to grasp the development of Indian feminism but also offers a glimpse into the lost world of a reformer with a fiery spirit. Mohanty does justice to this complicated woman by his selection from her writings and recognition of changes in her position on certain issues. This book will encourage additional research of value to women’s history.
