The poem by Jayanta Mahapatra is a beautiful piece of writing that nearly has an autobiographical quality due to the sensitive subject of religious conversion. In a sense, her grandfather’s diary is a narrative that describes how he abandoned his religion and his forefathers out of a primal want for food. During the famine in Orissa in 1866, hunger was the driving force that led this man to give up and accept Christianity.
