Discourses of Development, Democracy, and Regionalism in Odisha

Jayanta Sengupta

  • Discusses Oriya identity in comparison to other well-known linguistic movements in India such as the Andhra or the Tamil movement
  • It challenges the idea of 1947 as a watershed and seeks to grapple with the themes of regionalism, language-based ethnicity, centre-state relations, and the interrelationships between development and democracy across this notional divide
  • Deals with the issues of identity politics post 1947
