  • Mr. M. Suresh Asst. Professors of English, Valluvar College of Science and Management, Karur, Tamilnadu, India.


An incontrovertible relation exists between literature and society. Literature is the media which reflects the real picture of society. It projects the problems and issues in the society. The present analysis is an attempt to bring out the sociological issues among the subalterns. It has been explored in accordance with Mahasweta Devi’s Rudali. The main purpose of this analysis is to project the sufferings of Rudalies as subalterns. It explores the sociological concern in subaltern literature with reference to Rudalies. By representing the condition of Rudalies, Mahasweta Devi brought a great change in projecting the subalterns in the society.

            The story has other dimensions in the sense that it places the low class especially the subalterns in social and historical situations. The protagonist Sanichari has suffered under poverty, illiteracy and exploitation as subaltern which seems to be the major social issues. In Rudali, Mahasweta Devi through her description of Sanichari gives a picture of the entire subaltern communities.
