9780761936275: National Movement and Politics in Orissa, 1920-1929 (SAGE Series in Modern Indian History)

This book is a comprehensive study of the national freedom movement and politics in the state of Orissa in the 1920s. The emergence of nationalism and the Non-Cooperation Movement and its aftermath, are the main issues of discussion in this work. The book focuses on the regional peculiarities like the Oriya Linguistic and Cultural Identity movement in the context of the larger national freedom struggle. Many of the earlier works, on Orissa during that period, have looked at the regional political leadership as a contrast to the nationalists outside. But, this book provides a different aspect of that period, in that it argues that the leaders of the local movement and the leaders of the national movement were never hostile to each other.

About the Author:

Pritish Acharya is a Reader in history at National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) and is presently posted at Regional Institute of Education, Bhubaneswar, a constituent of NCERT. As a writer in Oriya, he has published three short story collections Pausa Pahile Jai (1986), Atmalipi (1989) and Patri Anwesana (2001). He has also written two collection of essays Apaninda Upakshana (2004) and Itihasara Samiksha (2007), translated works: Sampradayikta: Ekta Parichaya (2004) of Bipan Chandra, Srilal Shuklanka Ketoti Kahani (2006) of Srilal Shukla, and edited Smrutire Shikshaka (2006). 

He was awarded the “Basanta Milan Puraskar” for short story writing in 1986. A regular columnist in Oriya, some of his short stories are translated and published in prestigious Hindi journals like Samakalin Bharatiya Sahitya, Vagarth, Jansatta and Hindustan. Presently, he is working on the writings of Gopabandhu Das―a pioneer of nationalist struggle, basic education, nationalist press and social reforms in Orissa.

Review:

It is a well-researched volume with a sound empirical base which has the potential to illuminate the nature and scope of anti-colonial nationhood in the context of Orissa.

(Studies in History)

A major aspect of this book is that it assembles a host of language sources that include Oriya newspapers and some literary tracts... The value of this work is based on its explorations related to the interactions between the world of newspapers, literature, elite politics and the development

of nationalism in Orissa.

(Indian Historical Review)
