This chapter focuses on the way Orissa interacted with the emerging visions and agendas of the new ‘nation state’ after India's independence. It explores and historicises the manner in which the Oriya ruling class interacted with and translated the visions and ideas of the newly born Indian nation state and the ruling classes – a combination of capitalists and landlords – on the basis of its own imagination. Consequently, this chapter is concerned with the making of the post-colonial alternative order. It unveils how human beings were located in this phase of transition, when certain fundamental aspects associated with the anti-colonial movement were abandoned.

Keywords:   de-colonisation, grand-narratives, Bhagachasi (share-croppers’) movement, Prajamandal (princely states peoples’) movement, Kisan Sangha (peasant organisation), Communists, H.K. Mahtab, Biswanath Das, Sardar Vallabhai Patel, V.P. Menon
