“The people of Sunaput”, originally authored in Odia and later rendered into English by Veteran Novelist Dr. Hrusikesh Panda, presents a clear-cut storyline of the people of Sunaput, the golden village at the altitude of 3000 feet in the hilly plateau of Southern Odisha. The golden village was known for its fertile and flat fields, bountiful crops including mandia, suan, paddy, mustard and niger, plenty of honey in beehives, mahwa flowers, fruits and seeds in mahwa trees, mangoes, jack fruits, tendu fruits, jamun berries, fish in brooks and paddy fields. Through forceful descriptions, the author illustrates the exploitation, mistreatment, land alienation, government-induced displacement and its aftermath on the tribal life and living in an unbiased manner.
