Mahasweta Devi: A Fighter All Her Life, Voice Of The Oppressed

Mahasweta Devi: A Fighter All Her Life, Voice Of The Oppressed

Mahasweta Devi was the voice of the oppressed in her novels and short stories.

KOLKATA: 

HIGHLIGHTS

  1. Mahasweta Devi was the voice of the oppressed in her novels, stories
  2. A number of her works have been adapted for the silver screen
  3. She founded several societies for the welfare of tribals

A litterateur with the zeal of an activist, Mahasweta Devi used creative expression as a tool to fight for the rights of the indigenous people and marginalised sections.

With the sincerity of an activist and the passion of a writer, the Bengali writer was the voice of the oppressed in her novels and short stories, which won her a number of awards including the Padma Vibhushan, Magsaysay, Sahitya Akademi and Jnanpith.

All her acclaimed works like ‘Hajar Churashir Ma’ (Mother of 1084), ‘Aranyer Adhikar’ (Right to the Forest, ‘Jhansir Rani’ (The Queen of Jhansi), ‘Agnigarbha’ (The Fire Within), ‘Rudali’, ‘Sidhu Kanhur Daakey’, etc give us invaluable insights into the lives of the oppressed class.

A number of her works have been adapted for the silver screen. Govind Nihalani’s 1998 Hindi film ‘Hazaar Chaurasi ki Ma’ (The Mother of 1084) is based on her Bengali novel on the emotional struggles of a mother who tries to understand the reasons behind her son’s involvement in the Naxalite movement.

In 1993, Kalpana Lajmi also made the award-winning ‘Rudaali’ on her novel by the same name chronicling the life of professional mourners upon the death of upper-caste males in Rajasthan.

Italian director Italo Spinelli also made the multi-lingual ‘Gangor’ based on her short story ‘Choli Ke Peeche’ about the rights of women.

Going beyond her role as a writer and journalist, Mahasweta Devi also helped tribals and the rural dispossessed in organising themselves in groups so that they could take up development activities in their own areas.

She founded several grassroot level societies for the welfare of tribals.

Minor becomes a tax payer if her income arises from her skills

My son (15) is a singer and performs at live shows where he gets paid. I want to know how his earnings will be taxed.

—Mohit Bhatnagar

As per section 64(1A) of the Income-tax Act, 1961, clubbing provisions (i.e., income of the minor is clubbed with the income of the parent) would be applicable if the minor (i.e., below the age of 18 years) earns an income.

But these clubbing provisions are not applicable if the income arises or accrues to the minor child on account of activity involving application of his skill.

Since your son earns income by performing at live shows, the income earned shall be taxable in his hands. He will be taxed as a separate taxpayer. The amount received by him for his performances would generally be taxable as income from business or profession. Depending on the income, the applicability of maintaining books of account, tax audits and service tax need to be examined separately.

If I resign from a company after total service of 6 years, kindly confirm if there would be any tax deducted at source (TDS) on withdrawal of my Provident Fund (PF)?

—Nikhil Sharma

The PF withdrawal triggers a tax liability if the same is withdrawn without rendering continuous services with the employer for a period of 5 years or more. But if the accumulated PF balance maintained with the old employer is transferred to the PF account of the current employer, then the period of previous employment is also included as part of continuous service.

As you have already completed more than 5 years of service with your employer, there will not be any tax implications on receipt of the accumulated PF amount in the year of receipt of the amount. Accordingly, there will be no TDS at the time of payment. But you will have to report the PF withdrawal amount in the personal income tax return (ITR) form, to comply with the reporting requirements. The PF withdrawal will be as per the provisions of the Employees’ Provident Funds and Miscellaneous Provisions Act, 1952, which requires you to have a non-employment period of 2 months after leaving your job.

I married in 2016. My wife and I received gifts in the form of cash from relatives and friends, which totalled aroundRs.45,000. Do we have pay tax on it?

—Yash Mehta

Under section 56 of the Act, any sum of money, the aggregate value of which exceeds Rs.50,000 received by an individual during the financial year (FY) without or for inadequate consideration, is taxed under ‘income from other sources’ in the hands of the recipient. But any amount received from specified relatives, or that received on the occasion of marriage, is not taxable in the hands of the recipient.

As the aggregate value of cash received by both of you during

FY17 is on occasion of your marriage, there will not be any tax implication.
