The Awakening of Man

Rated 4/5 based on 2 customer reviews


Description :

The Awakening of Man is a historical and personal account of Godavari Parulekar’s struggles for the Warli people. A social activist and member of the Communist Party, she spent more than four decades of her life in the tribal belt of Thane, home to the Warli tribe. Influenced by Marxist ideology and applying the principles of Marxism in a more humanistic and peaceful manner, she selflessly dedicated her life to the social and political upliftment of the Warlis against the oppressive mechanism of the landlords, police, courts, and the Government in the late 1940s.


The original Marathi version, first published in 1970 was an all-time classic and this translation will bring this great piece of literature to a non-Marathi audience.


“This book is a simple yet moving first person account of the extraordinary struggle of the Warli tribe in Maharashtra for their rights as human beings led by the selfless Parulekar couple. The Awakening of Man is a classic novel on rebellion written in a self-effacing manner by Godavari Parulekar that charts out the timeless Promethean struggle of the oppressed against the inhuman social and political conditions. It resonates as a sincere, eloquent, and supremely rational voice of conscience among all rebellions in the 21st century. The book is a must read.”
