Footprints in the Bajra- by Nabina Das

Struggle. Revolution. Change. Are these words simply meant for chanting or do they emerge as real agents of social justice in a country where the divides stand taller than multistoried shopping malls and sky-licking urban ghettoes?


Footprints in the Bajra is a novel about the dark realities that even today hound India, a thriving modern democracy in the eye of the world; about a young Maoist recruit named Muskaan from Bihar who meets Nora, a student-activist from New Delhi. The story of Muskaan’s transition in belief and action unfolds in this work that delights readers and travels with ease across idioms and identities to engage with the personal interaction of the author with popular cultures, histories and myths.
