Shankar Mudi

Shankar Mudi

This is a story of a small subarban locality of the Metro City Kolkata named Goragacha. The neighbourhood or in Bengali Para consists of a small grocery shop, run by its owner Shankar, a barbar, a tea stall, a ladies tailor, a gents tailor and a local auto rickshaw driver. Amongst localities, there are a political leader or dada, a family whose only young youth was actively engaged in politics and subsequently died in a police encounter, a teacher, a live-in frustrated son-in-law and a Bahurupi. The story started with affectionate bondage between people in that big joint family like para, which slowly faced the fear of being extinct due to their financial stringency. As a part of advanced civilized modernisation which was an obvious effect of globalisation, a shopping mall emerged in their locality. Local residents slowly get accustomed with the central AC comfort, wide range of products, promotional techniques, acceptance of digital payments etc. of the local shopping mall which put a strong and uneven challenge of survival to local small scale business owners. They were losing their livelihood very fast. Shankar tried to cope-up with “mall effects” like keeping packet food grains, home delivery, introducing utility bill payments, even installing stand blower fan for his customers who’ in his version’ his God. But all his and the entire neighbourhood’s struggle gone in vain. Some leave, someone compromised their chastity, someone committed suicide after being defeated in this life struggle for survival. The plot clearly pinpoints the obvious negative impact of globalisation without having constructive governmental planning for saving medium or small scale businesses.[5]
