At Indira Gandhi Tribal University, Amarkantak, on February 27 & 28, 2013

Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak’s ‘Can the Subaltern Speak?’ focus on the conceptualizing and world shaping power of language and texts in order to show in how far the environmental crisis related with modernism must be regarded as a cultural crisis and in how far literally/textual analysis can contribute to an understanding of its emergence and to the development of remedial measures. Later this idea encourages other anthropologists and eco-feminists to prove how modern civilization stands against gender equality.
I read a resource paper titled ‘Gender Free Subaltern Society: Myths and Reality’ at a National seminar on Post-colonial Subaltern Studies and Tribal Literature, arranged by Indira Gandhi Tribal University, Amarkantak; where I forwarded my observations that how the idea fails to substantiate the reality. There is no way any relationship of gender free attitude within the social custom of any tribal community including Bonda tribes, the most primitive subaltern tribes of India.
