A Tale of Two Simple ଓdias

Author Name: Satya | Format: Paperback | Genre : Biographies & Autobiographies | Other Details

Rural Odisha is where it all begins. Pre-independence Odisha.

The Bengal famine of 1943 has wiped out millions from the Bengal-Odisha-Bihar belt. The common man is writhing under abject poverty. The nation is sandwiched between the ambitions of a Nationalist movement and the British retaliation. 

Existential survival is the only aspiration. 

Born to large extended agrarian families in the scenic countryside of Odisha coast, two simple souls struggle to find their identity. 

The strong orthodoxy of Odia society, deplorable state of a girl child, severe constraints of economy and cultural pressures stare them in their faces. 

Can they overcome these challenges to define and discover happiness?

The author is a serving Officer in the Indian Armed Forces. The flair for writing is an off-shoot of his professional obligations and various research papers. He is an Electrical Engineer with a BTech from JNU, and a post-graduation in Defence and Startegic studies from Madras University. He has completed his MPhil from Mumbai University and is presently pursuing his PhD.  

The author has travelled widely, both globally and within the country. He is a sports enthusiast with a Masters in Sports Management and plays the National Masters Tournaments for the Delhi state. He is a music lover and performs occasionally on stage with the guitar. He also pursues painting as a hobby.

He loves to travel and explore, and is intrigued by the variety of folklores, mythology and simplistic living within the Indian culture. 

This ‘Lifo-graphy’, is his first attempt towards writing a non-fiction book based on the lives of a simple Odia Family, as they weave through the constraints of society, culture and economy; defining and discovering their own happiness.
