Environment and Social History: Kalahandi, 1800-1950

Biswamoy Pati

Environment and History 5(1999): 345-359

This paper examines the social history of Kalahandi in western Orissa over the 1800-1950 period, in an attempt to explore the roots of the famine which haunts the region even today. It delineates the pre-colonial origins of the crisis, and the way Kalahandi's colonisation reinforced the problems.
