9788170462057: Birsa Munda

This work is a complete account of probably the best known millenarian movement in tribal India.

Since the second revised edition of Birsa Munda and His Movement was published in 1983, the Birsa cult has developed further, and Birsa Munda has emerged as the icon of the tribal people all over India.

Acclaimed as the first of its kind, this study is based on anthropological data and archival material. The book has been translated into several languages, inspiring various forms of creative adaption in contemporary folk and regional literature.

Originally published as The Dust-Storm and the Hanging Mist, 1966.

Book Description Seagull Books, 2002. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. First edition. This work is a complete account of probably the best known millenarian movement in tribal India. The movement of the Mundas led by Birsa was typical of the resistance and revitalization movements in the latter half of the nineteenth century. A combination of a religious and a political movement, it represented the struggle and aspirations of his people, sowing the first stirrings of nationalism among them and featuring an urge to recreate the old world which had disappeared under the onslaught of colonialism. Since the second revised edition of Birsa Munda and His Movement was published in 1983, the Birsa cult has developed further, and Birsa Munda has emerged as the icon of the tribal people all over India. His movement Ulgulan (the upheaval) has been appropriated by all sorts of people, and by all political parties in Chotanagpur to further their agenda. The legend of the lad from Chalkad has travelled far and wide; and his portrait hangs in the Central Hall of Parliament, the only tribal leader to have been so honoured. Acclaimed as the first of its kind, this study is based on anthropological data and archival material. It traces Birsa`s early life and his transformation into a `black Christ` against the background of the processes of transformation of the tribal society of Chotanagpur. His political movement and his religion are closely studied in the context of their impact on the course of history. The book was translated into various languages of the country and inspired various forms of creative adaptation in contemporary folk and regional literature, including Mahasweta Devi`s major novel Aranyer Adhikar. Printed Pages: 365. Bookseller Inventory # 4200
