Order Now Odia Novel Chapalachanda(Chapala chhanda ) By Bibhuti Pattnaik From Odisha Shop
The tenth edition of ‘Chappal Chhanda’ has been published in a few years. The fact that this novel has caused a great stir among the ignorant readers and literary critics of Odisha is reassuring to me for various reasons.The events of this political novel, written in historical context, are limited to the period after India’s first general election since World War II.Some of the information contained in it about the Gadjat Prajamandal movement is taken from the history of the long unpublished long Gadjat movement of the late Sarangdhar Das.
After the publication of the first edition, it was appropriate to name the novel ‘Chhapal Chhanda’ instead of ‘Itikatha of Andharigarh’, which was accepted by my predecessor Mohapatra Neelamani Sahu. I don’t think I should have implemented that advice so as not to give readers unnecessary suspicion of name change.I would be happy to accept the name ‘Chappal Chhanda’ for those who may seem petty in the name of ‘Itikatha of Andharigarh’.
