Product description


‘From the first page of the first story in The Adivasi Will Not Dance, it has become clear that we have entered a world new to Indian readers’.—Biblio
‘He is clearly a writer to follow, someone whose work promises a fresh look at Adivasi lives’.— Biblio
‘Hansda Sowvendra Shekhar is a writer to be sought out and discovered. May his tribe increase’- The Indian Express


‘Hansda Sowvendra Shekhar, the Jharkhand-based government doctor… has a powerful short story ""The Adivasi Will Not Dance"". It is about a visit to Jharkhand by the president of India to inaugurate a thermal power station that is coming up on land from which Santhals have been evicted’. - The Telegraph

‘Shekhar, one of the five writers shortlisted for The Hindu Prize 2017, produces a no-holds-barred work on the life of the marginalized that seems less fiction and more the stuff of life. He doesn’t veil these voices in literary flourishes or what he calls “classic literary tropes”. His characters are flesh and blood, the stories difficult to stomach, the language brutal’.—The Hindu
