Mahasweta Devi raised her voice several times against the discrimination of tribal people in India. Mahasweta herself made a decision to pursue English literature, gaining a BA and MA degree in thr subject; she taught at a Kolkata college (after trying out various other jobs like working at a post office, selling soaps and letter writing). She had also taken active part in Nandigram agitation and headed the movement against the earlier CPI (Marxist) government's industrial policy.
