Abstract

Writer activists like Wangari Maathai, Ken Saro-Wiwa and Mahasweta Devi have worked relentlessly to fight for justice for the poor and the marginalized and have also proved successful in generating awareness not only regarding the struggles of the poor but also about degeneration of the environment.
