Description

Scent of the Soil

Selections From Telangana Kavitha 2006-2010

Colonial mechanism operates at many levels searching myriad means to keep its prize catch, the colonized people under its grip so as to perpetuate its exploitative methods. Some are overt mechanisms and others covert. Force and violence are overt whereas education, religion, and cultural takeover are covert mechanisms. This was performed to perfection by the earlier colonial masters, and now by the neo-colonialists.

In any colonial regime, local gods, religion, history, social mores, and cultural practices were made to look primitive and uncivilized. In post-independent times, the dominant privileged groups/ communities exhibit a similar colonial mindset.

In liberation aesthetics or combat literature the first phase is marked by a celebration of native history, culture, important places, and glorification of its illustrious heroes so as to instill confidence while reminding the people of their past glory. This is the phase of reclamation, resurrection, and recreation. The second phase is marked by protest literature.

This anthology, consisting of 83 poems translated from Telugu, pays a glowing tribute to the Telangana ethos and the forty five year old struggle the people have been waging for their statehood.
