Fakir Mohan Senapati (1843–1918) wrote the 19th-century Indian book Chha Maana Atha Guntha in the Odia language, and the University of California Press translated it into English. It is the first Indian novel to address the exploitation of landless peasants by a feudal Lord in British India, and it was written long before Russia’s October Revolution. The “Father of Modern Odia Literature” is how its creator is referred to.
A married couple, Saria and Bhagia, own an extremely productive piece of land, and landlord Ram Chandra Mangaraj is plotting to steal it. After losing the land, the husband goes crazy. And their cow is kidnapped. The landlord beat the wife Saria (Parbati Ghose) to death. The landlord suffers greatly as he hears the echoes of the widow, who lost her husband, property, and everything, in a variety of emotions. The landlord could always hear the woman’s voice saying, “Give me my 6 acres and the third, give me my the cow.” Due of his terrible karma, the landlord passes away.
