A SUBALTERN OPPRESSION IN MAHASWETA DEVI'S NOVEL 'THE GLORY OF SRI SRI GANESH'
S. R. Nithiya, Dr. P. Santhosh
The works of Mahasweta Devi that will be studied clearly illustrate the author's concern for the oppression Dalits, Adivasis, Scheduled Castes, and Scheduled Tribes who are denied their basic rights by the ruling higher classes. Mahasweta Devi's portraits do not depict the oppressed in a rosy light, rather than she depicts their lives in the face of misfortune and illustrate their character and courage in the face of injustice. Mahasweta Devi speaks out against the social and cultural stereotypes that impact women from all walks of life including the poor and high class society. She portrays women's injustices and emphasizes the significance of gender inequality and imbalance in our society. Her works accurately depict the lives of men and women, their pains, suffering their issues and the social obstacles they face. She emphasizes the link between feudalism and patriarchy, which exacerbates subaltern oppression. This paper is discussed about a subaltern oppression in Mahasweta Devi's novel The Glory of Sri Sri Ganesh. The hierarchical opposing forces in this novel construct the main structure that describes the social life of India's lower classes.
