Desha Paradesha is a heart-wrenching novel by Sarat Chandra Mishra, originally written in Odia. The story is set in the early twentieth century, when India was still under British rule. It revolves around the character of Gauri, a young bride who is sold into the flesh trade by her own husband. The novel is an eye-opener to the plight of women in a patriarchal society and the stigma attached to their bodies.
The narrative is divided into two parts – Desha and Paradesha. In the first part, Gauri’s journey from a happy home to the hellish brothel is described in detail. Her struggle to keep her dignity intact and her love for her infant son shine through the gloom of her existence. In the second part, Gauri is taken to Burma by her pimp, where she is forced to work in a opium den. Her encounters with men from different walks of life and her realization that humanity has lost its morality and compassion is heartrending.
Desha Paradesha is a social commentary on the evil of human trafficking and how it destroys the soul of the victims. Sarat Chandra Mishra’s vivid descriptions and powerful characterization make the novel a must-read for anyone who wants to understand the complexities of gender issues and social inequality in India.
