The Adivasi Will Not Dance: Hansda Sowvendra Shekhar

The book titled The Adivasi Will Not Dance, penned by Hansda Sowvendra Shekhar, was in news in the second week of October 2016.

The book was recently shortlisted for The Hindu Prize 2016.

The characters of the book are set in the fecund, mineral-rich hinterland and the ever-expanding, squalid towns of Jharkhand.

The book, a collection of stories, offers the glimpse in the lives of troupe-master Mangal Murmu, who refuses to perform for the President of India and is beaten down; Suren and Gita, a love-blind couple, who wait with quiet desperation outside a neonatal ward; Panmuni and Biram Soren, who move to Vadodara in the autumn of their lives, only to find that they must stop eating meat to be accepted as citizens, and several other characters.
