Paraja is a work of modern Indian fiction that was first written in the Oriya language in 1945 and is now being translated for the first time. It narrates the epic tale of a tribal patriarch and his family living in the dense woods of Orissa’s mountains. The family’s long descent from quiet prosperity of a subsistence lifestyle to servitude to the local moneylender is both profoundly personal and emblematic of the demise of an entire way of life in rural areas.
