Product description


An inspirational story of a refugee, he was so poor that his sister died of starvation and his father from lack of treatment. He only learn to read and write as an adult when he was jailed on charges of being a nexallite. Today he is an award winning author, popular not just in his native Bengal but across India. Byapari pens down his own story with anger of the others who continue to live in abject poverty and as objects of social prejudice.

(DNA, 25 March 2018)

The book follows Byapari’s journey from the partition that forced hus family to relocate to Calcutta, through the tumults of the Naxal movement and the Baster revolution headed by Shankar Guha Neogi-both of which Byapari was part of –to his rise as an established author.

Byapri’s investigation into his identity is layered .Besides his cause identity –Byapari is a Namashudra- he has also been a refugee, a Bangal, a Naxal, a communist, an activist, a writer and so on. Byapari autobiography talks of things that have been written about many times. But the voices from within are few and far between, even these rarely find their way into the so-called mainstream.

(THE TELEGRAPH, 22 Jun 2018)
