Tracing Freedom.

Mahasveta Devi's definition of freedom.

Portrait of Mahasveta Devi from India, Kolkata.

Definition and personal details of Mahasveta Devi.

Freedom means freedom from all bondages. I think of the birds, butterflies and beetles. We the city people are robbing them of their right to be free from all bondages and live as natures’ creatures. Let the tribals and the non-tribal poor enjoy their right to live a life free from direct & indirect bondages.
